Creativity in social entrepreneurship

Lately I have been identifying sites and projects where the promoters have used lot of creativity (not just the vision) to push the boundaries of social entrepreneurship. Few days ago I posted about Acumen Fund-

Acumen Fund is a not-for-profit enterprise focused on improving the lives of the poor around the world. We operate like a venture capital firm - investing philanthropic resources in innovative social entrepreneurs through three thematic portfolios (health care technologies, Muslim World, Water innovations) - with a goal of social change rather than financial return

Today I came across Gapminder
Gapminder is a non-profit venture for development and provision of free software that visualize human development

You should checkout the global health trend and how the global and regional variations convey their numbers via powerful visuals.
