When you're busy changing the world, it can be hard to find time to laugh.

But a new Tumblr called "When You Work At A Nonprofit" is the perfect antidote. The good-humored roundup of GIFs puts into words and pics the universal difficulties of grant-writing, donor outreach and hashtags longer than your work day. Leah Neaderthal and Leanne Pittsford, the founders of Lean Impact -- an organization that helps charities operate more efficiently -- started the Tumblr this week as a platform for people to share their experiences at nonprofits.

Although they did not anticipate it taking off quickly, "When You Work At A Nonprofit" has already reached about 100,000 hits and 200 GIF submissions daily, Neaderthal told the Huffington Post in an email.

The Lean Impact co-founders are hoping that their page helps improve the workplace atmosphere of nonprofits that Neaderthal feels "over-think things," she wrote to HuffPost.
