Here's the blurb from the press release:

Social Entrepreneur Alexis Ohanian is going to share his experience of social entrepreneurship with Armenian NGOs. Meeting will take place on March 25, 2010, at 17:30PM, at PFCS NGO

Alexis started a social enterprise called ''Breadpig''(http://breadpig.com/ ), at the end of 2007 because he wanted to produce and sell geeky things. Instead of spending the profits building waterslides made out of gold, he donates it all to non-profits working in areas related to the items ''Breadpig'' sells. It's most recent product, publishing xkcd: volume 0, the first book of the popular webcomic, xkcd, has been sold over 25,000 copies -- Breadpig's profits are donated to Room To Read, a charity dedicated to promoting literacy in the developing world. In the last two years since inception, the "uncorporation" has given away almost $100,000.
