Daily Beast Launches Socially Conscious Site Giving Beast

Last week, The Huffington Post launched a new philanthropically focused vertical, HuffPost Impact, and this week Tina Brown‘s online publication The Daily Beast unveiled a socially conscious page of its own: Giving Beast.

Just as HuffPost paired with Causecast.org, Daily Beast has launched Giving Beast in partnership with Global Philanthropy Group. The site currently features stories about important social issues like Nicole Kidman‘s support for the International Violence Against Women Act and the experiences of Afghan businesswomen. The articles include links to non-profit organizations supporting the causes described, like the United Nation’s Development Fund for Women.

Earlier this week, Arianna Huffington told FishbowlNY that it was more important than ever for Americans to work together, support each other and build communities. From the looks of Giving Beast, it seems like Brown would agree.

What do you think? Do you want to read about causes and philanthropy?
