Something really big happened this year, in that Congress passed a law saying that a tax that has been on everyone's phone bill for 108 years was illegal. It was originally put on there for the Spanish-American War. And we were still being taxed for it until now.
So what Congress is doing is letting us get that money back in a one-time-only refund.
What happened for our organization, however, is that another non-profit org called Refunds For Good was set up to try and get people to donate this refund (since it is free money anyway).
Our organization was chosen to be one of three non-profit orgs that this money would be given to. So now the job remains to us to inform people about this refund and encourage them to give to RFG.

There is also a humorous YouTube video that was made about this subject here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCOwDKz3
And, of course, for more information on the non-profit that I work for, here is the link: http://www.self.org
