What charity/cause is this badge for?

My wife and I saw the actor Benedict Cumberbatch recently. When we met him he was wearing the same charity awareness badge that he is wearing in this picture. Does anyone know what charity/cause it is for? If not, when/if I get to meet him again I will try and remember to ask.

Best food bank in north San Fernando Valley?

Any suggestions for a good food bank or food pantry in the north or west San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles? We're going to see lots of grapefruit and avocado from our trees this year, and I'd like to donate it to needy folks. Google is not a big help.

Getting a celebrity to help our nonprofit?

How do we get a (music) celebrity to help promote an event in a YouTube-type video? Our community nonprofit is having a month-long event in June, and my daydream is to get some (recognizable) musician/band in a video that we could post on our very popular Facebook page. Ideally, he/she would say something like, "If I weren't on tour in [wherever] right now, I'd definitely be at [event name]! Don't miss it!" How do I even attempt this? I'm in a medium-sized city on the East Coast.

Ahh, there is that liberal guilt again!

I am looking for a few pointers to well-regarded non-profits that focus on "social equality" (I may not be using the right term) - breaking povery cycles, education assistance, living wages for blue-collar work and so on. I don't know where to start, but maybe you can help me! [more inside]

Jumpstarting a lasting fund, without the pesky

I would like to create a non-profit fund / fundraising org earmarked towards jumpstarting community centers. I've heard that rather than trying to create a non-profit, it might be best to partner with an existing non-profit with similar interests, and see if they'd "host" the fund I want to create / help with the legal aspects, while allowing me to earmark and oversee the fund. I intend to do regular fundraising, and hope to create a lasting fund that attracts bequests. Does anyone know about the legalities involved here? Any advice as to how I might want to approach such a project?
