Plant With Purpose

With over 23 million trees planted since 1984, Plant With Purpose programs and activities are designed to foster long-term impact by equipping families to use their own God-given abilities to address the problems they face. Through an integrated approach to community development, they work to get at the roots of three facets of poverty—environmental, economic, and spiritual.

How is this possible? Plant With Purpose’s programs help families to increase farm yields, heal damaged ecosystems, improve nutrition, increase household savings, and provide greater economic opportunity. Combined, this integrated program solves two major issues facing the world today: environmental degradation and rural poverty.

There are a variety of ways to get involved with Plant With Purpose including sponsorship, internships, fellowships and volunteering. Visit their website: https://www.plantwithpurpose.org/ to learn more about how you can get involved!

Action Network

Whether you were signing a petition, signing up for email notifications for community events or a fundraiser for a good cause, it very well could have been powered by “Action Network”.

Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes. They encourage responsible activism, and do not support using the platform to take unlawful or other improper action. They do not control or endorse the conduct of users and make no representations of any kind about them.

If you opt to partner with Action Network you’ll get access to a wide range of tools, including the ability to upload activists and subscribe them to your list, create custom-branded email and page wrappers, and more. The interface allows you to organize with other users to create petitions, events, ticketed events, forms, fundraisers, letter campaigns, emails, reports, queries and more!

This is pretty darn cool.

Ocean Conservancy

Ocean Conservancy is the name, and international coastal cleanup is the game: “Harnessing the Power of People to Fight Ocean Trash”.

Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of the world’s biggest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Will you join us this year?

Today, plastic has been found in 62% of all sea birds and in 100% of sea turtle species.

A problem as big as plastic in the ocean requires a big response! By participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, you can make a difference. You’ll join millions of volunteers just like you, who love the ocean and want to protect it. This year’s International Coastal Cleanup is Saturday, September 16th, 2017.
