Something big happened this week: #NonprofitPickupLines.
Earlier this week, Vu Le wrote about dating in the nonprofit sector on the always hilarious Nonprofit with Balls blog:
“Sure, you may have kickass pickup lines like, “Does RFP stand for ‘Really Fine Person?’ You’re definitely an RFP to me” or “So, you’re a program officer, huh? Well, you better arrest yourself, officer, because you just stole my heart” (#nonprofitpickuplines, go make that trend on Twitter).”
Sure enough, fellow nonprofit nerds took to Twitter to share their own #NonprofitPickupLines. Who knew the nonprofit community was full of comedians? 😉
Here are some of our favorites:

11. Magic word = “pro-bono”
