We believe the goodness & creativity within every individual is the largest untapped resource for building a kinder, more compassionate world. We support early stage grassroots volunteers, many of whom may have just a glimmer of an idea. Often, these ideas are seen as too small or too risky to attract other support. Without a path to manifest their vision, many would-be changemakers are just left to shake their heads and think “Someone should do something about _____.”
What if there was a way we could show individuals that they are indeed that “someone”? What if there was a model that could offer encouragement, many forms of support, and community to anyone who has a vision for service? What if we could offer an antidote to apathy? We use the money we raise to seed a vibrant community of global changemakers.
Every day, our community selects a new project that will receive $1,000 in seed funding. The funding is helpful, but the real gift is belief; for this reason, we love to be the first to say “yes”! As the project blossoms, leaders can access capacity-building support, encouragement, and connectivity with others within a geographic or focus area.
