Social Actions API

Use the Social Actions Open API to search the SocialActions.com database of volunteer and philanthropy opportunities, called social actions, useful for those interested in peer-to-peer social change. The database aggregates the opportunities of over 20 organizations, and the results include the title, description, location, action type, and source URL of the opportunity. Some of the organizations that are aggregated are Democracy in Action, MicroGiving, VolunteerMatch, and Helpalot. You can narrow your request by any of the following action types: Group Fundraiser, Campaign, Pledged action, Event, Affinity group, Volunteer, Micro-credit loan, or Petition.

Very useful API.Currently I am in the process of developing a site where this API to large extent could be useful.I will be glad if location information will also be available in the JSON file it returns.
I read about John Brennan who has created an awesome mashup using this API, but because of the lack of location information, he has used EE to get the location and point it on to the map.
I am anxious to know whether location information be provided some time soon in the JSON file which will help non-veterans to skip the use of EE
