We are excited to announce that we have raised thousands of dollars across the world....
his request will fund the creation of an open source wildlife tracking collar, developed to protect the last lions living in Kenya. This request will help fund the creation of an open source wildlife tracking collar. The system is being developed to help save the last 2000 remaining lions in Kenya and is a continuation of work done in conjunction with the Lion Guardians Program and the Living with Lions research group. These organizations work to protect the last lions living in Kenya as well as the Maasai herders' pastoral livelihood. The pledged $9000 would help fund the cost of parts, travel expenses for testing and labor in building the prototype. The project consists of two parts, a tracking system that utilizes GPS/GSM technology to locate and track wildlife and the open source documentation of the work. The first $1200 dollars over the target amount will go directly to sponsor a Lion Guardian for a full year in Kenya.This project resulted from a previous trip to Kenya where I, Justin Downs of GRND Lab, built a solar-powered tree-house for the Lion Guardians' research camp. The Lion Guardians program focuses on mediating the conflict between the Maasai herders and the lions who prey on their cows. The Maasai, in retaliation to killed livestock or political conflicts, poison or hunt the lions, causing a disappearance of the lions in the wild.While there, I learned that the conservation techniques having the greatest effect in Kenya are those that look at the ecosystem as a whole. In other words, all information collected about the local environment from elephant data to cattle data - two species that co-exist with the lions - is now integral to the understanding and effectiveness of lion conservation efforts. Because of this it is now common practice for researchers in inter-related fields of study to share data after collecting and analyzing it. This project’s technology and open source development was conceived specifically to address this method of working.How is this tracking collar prototype different from the current tracking technology in use today? It differs greatly because it will remain an open source technology, making it free and easily accessible to the public. This has the effect that if the technology is used by the large community of researchers in Kenya (i.e. lion, elephant or climate researchers) they would be able to share valuable data in real time, rather than delaying the process with incompatible technologies. This would save these foundations large amounts of time and money, while expediting finding solutions to the ecological/conservation problems. Also, by open-sourcing this technology anyone who is interested in data aggregation and tracking (from technologists to small business owners and even artists) would finally have open access, bringing a larger audience into the development of these technologies, reducing cost and speeding up innovation overall.So any help you could give to this venture would be very appreciated and we will keep you up to date on all the changes and status of this project and the wildlife it involves.Donate Now
Pass It On plantable candles 2.0 is back with new scents & product upgrades! Candle holders possess a 2nd life as planting pots. [UPDATE] There's an error in the estimated delivery time - it should be July 2020 not July 2022. We will ship out the products in 2 months after the campaign ends. Thank you for your support! About Us Pass It On plantable candles pay tribute to iconic destinations that are endangered due to climate change. Our candles are made of sustainable materials and are designed to encourage our users to give the candles a second life by repurposing them as planting pots. Most importantly, for every purchase of a Pass It On candle, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Eden Reforestation Projects to plant 10 trees. New Scents, Product Upgrades And Better Rewards! Thanks to your support towards our first successful campaign, we are back with new scents, products upgrades and better rewards! (1) NEW SCENTS For our two new scents, we draw inspiration from the lush Congo Basin and Venice’s breezy waterways. Finished in two beautiful earth tones, these new scents expand our colour palette. NEW: Congo Basin - Orchid & Vetiver In the Democratic Republic of Congo, refugees from armed conflict are forced to live off the land with severe impacts to forests and wildlife. Palm oil plantations and other commercial agriculture operations are a growing threat, putting greater pressure on the Congo’s forests and rivers. NEW: Venice - Rose & Patchouli As the city is built on marshland at the edge of a lagoon, its existence has always required maintaining a careful balance between the city and the natural world. But in recent years, rising sea levels due to climate change has threatened to throw off the balance. (2) PRODUCT UPGRADES Since our first campaign, we've gathered feedback and spent weeks enhancing our product to be even more socially responsible. First, we realised that although many people loved the idea of planting our seed-infused candle lids, not many users did. So here's the good news: We're providing you with soil! For this batch, every candle will come with compressed soil pellets. All you have to do is add some water, and the pellets will expand into a handful of soil! Second, we're upgrading our wicks to be twice the thickness so that it burns the candle more evenly, giving you stronger scent throw. Lastly, our packaging is now made from FSC-certified cardboard. The FSC certification is considered the "gold standard" in eco terms for papermaking, as wood is harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious and economically viable. (3) BETTER REWARDS Previously, we gave away postcards; this time, we're giving away a bamboo candle cover to those who purchase 2 or more candles! Bamboo is a kind of grass, which makes growing it about as easy as it gets. Being extremely adaptable and resilient, bamboo is a super sustainable alternative to wood or plastic. Also, we're offering 4 sets of limited edition larger-sized candles for our ultimate changemakers! Each set will include an exclusive 185g candle in these beautiful cement pots: Alps (large) & Venice (standard) Amazon (large) & Congo (standard) The Green Factor Pass It On candles are made of sustainable materials. The candle wax is made with 100% soy wax, and does not contain any dyes, parabens, paraffin or phthalates. Turn Pass It On candle holders into flower pots! Our candle holders have been designed to be repurposed as gardening cement pots (which is why they’re not glass jars), and our candle lids are made of biodegradable paper infused with wildflower seeds. So plant candle lid into pot after finishing your candle. Packaging boxes are made of FSC-certified cardboard. No bubble wrap or plastic materials are used. The Scents Pass It On presents its new collection of scented candles, inspired by iconic destinations around the world that are endangered due to climate change. The scents were created to remind us of these endangered destinations with the hope to encourage the current generation to do their part in protecting our environment. NEW: Congo Basin - Orchid & Vetiver In the Democratic Republic of Congo, refugees from armed conflict are forced to live off the land with severe impacts to forests and wildlife. Palm oil plantations and other commercial agriculture operations are a growing threat, putting greater pressure on the Congo’s forests and rivers. NEW: Venice - Rose & Patchouli As the city is built on marshland at the edge of a lagoon, its existence has always required maintaining a careful balance between the city and the natural world. But in recent years, rising sea levels due to climate change has threatened to throw off the balance. Amazon - Goji & Tarocco Blood Orange Brazil's Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world. It is home to the world's most diverse species, but expansion of agriculture has led to the destruction of the rainforest and wildlife. Alps - English Pear & Freesia Every year, the European mountain range loses around 3% of glacial ice, which means that by 2050, there might not be any more glaciers. Great Barrier Reef - Wood Sage & Sea Salt The world's largest coral reef, Australia's Great Barrier Reef, has decreased by more than half its size because of rising temperatures in the past 30 years. Taj Mahal - White Tea & Ginger The Taj Mahal is one of the most iconic buildings in the world, but some experts worry that the site could collapse because of erosion and pollution. The Mission The purpose of creating this product stems from our mission to grow more trees on our planet to combat devastating levels of carbon emissions. With every purchase of a Pass It On candle, a donation will be made to Eden Reforestation Projects to plant 10 trees. Pass It On partners with Eden Reforestation Projects providing locals employment for their reforestation projects. Why Eden Reforestation Projects? Eden Reforestation Projects is a 501c3 non-profit who goes beyond planting trees and adopts the mission to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. Beyond planting trees, Eden Reforestation adopts the mission to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. "We hire the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Our “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures." Scientific studies have shown that Mangroves “sequester carbon at a rate two to four times greater than mature tropical forests”, and contain “the highest carbon density of all terrestrial ecosystems.” Mangrove restoration on these islands are essential to reducing the effects of flooding, tsunami’s and soil erosion Trees are extremely efficient at carbon sequestration and one of the most effective tools in the fight against dangerous Greenhouse Gases that contribute to climate change and global warming. To keep track of the number of trees being planted, we have created a Trillion Tree account to ensure traceability for each donation. To see our tracker on Trillion Trees, The Story While on a trip to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, our founder, Michelle, was both astounded by its beauty amidst the destruction and saddened by the dire state of our planet’s largest coral reef. When corals get stressed, from things such as heat or pollution, they react by expelling a marine algae, leaving a ghostly, transparent skeleton behind. This is known as ‘coral bleaching’. If we continue to pollute the air and the ocean with carbon emissions at our high rate, coral reefs around the world will face a catastrophic future in coming decades – in our lifetime. A trip to Southern Great Barrier Reef in Australia, triggered a chain of emotions and actions, birthing Pass It On just 1 month after. Thankfully, areas such as Lady Elliot Island in Australia, is still very much protected and many new initiatives and sustainable resorts have been sprouting up to conserve what's left of the Great Barrier Reef. Despite the efforts of many, Michelle felt that more could and had to be done. Like what 16 year old Greta Thunberg aptly put it across "We already have the facts and solution. All we have to do is wake up and change.”Donate Now
OverviewPirool Energy has been working to bring sustainable jobs to villages in Kumaon, in rural Himalayan India, since 2015, and we need your help to bring our business to launch. Our goal is to provide jobs and empower women through job creation while bolstering the local ecosystem through bio-charcoal production. Help us with funding to refine the technology and showcase our product in preparing to launch this venture!Short SummaryWe are the Pirool Energy team, a couple of guys who are passionate about using technology to benefit lives in tangible ways. We started this project for our Master's thesis project at TU Delft in the Netherlands, focusing on producing biofuel from pine needles in the Himalayan mountains of northern India, where jobs are scarce, women have few opportunities, and families struggle to stay together. We want to provide income opportunities for locals, especially women, and allow people to stay and build community in the mountains. Join us in impacting lives there!What We Need We are asking for a total of $17,500 (US), and this will spur us on toward commercialization of our charcoal production enterprise. We have been investing in this project since 2014, and now the biggest hurdle is refining our production process and technology to make the business viable, and to demonstrate our product to the market.The first portion of the money raised ($9,500) will go to cover expenses from the Pilot Project we carried out in May of last year, which gave such promising results, but left a lot unfinished. Specifically, the money will go to payback our partner Students4Sustainability who supported us in the project.The second portion of the money ($8,000) will fuel our research and development, namely in refining our production process and demonstrating our product to potential customers. We have explored the market substantially already, but now we need to go an show our product and win customers over.The ImpactImagine with us a life where you have minimal options for income in the place you call home. You have grown up here, your roots are here, your family is here, but it is becoming more and more difficult to pay for basic needs because there simply isn't work to find.As the sole bread winner of your family, you are faced with two options: move to the city in search for work, or try to make do in the mountains. The cities are unknown, distant, disconnected from your community, overcrowded, and unsanitary, but might over a meager job. The mountains have few schools, poor roads and amenities, and dwindling job prospects, but they are home. So what do you do?Millions of rural Indians take the leap of faith, and migrate to cities to support their families back at home in underpaying jobs. Those who stay struggle for income and employment opportunities in their hometowns, or families splitting up to survive. We want to provide economic opportunities in mountain villages, while conserving the environment and preserving the natural beauty.ChallengesAs said above, there are hurdles to get past. We need to refine our product and production process to make the business viable. There is promise, but it will take work and your support to get to the point of sustainable charcoal production. Also, we need to work to convince customers that we have a good product. As with anything, proving a new product isn't easy, and we need to go to the customers with our refined product to show them it's value.Thankfully, we are in a good spot to handle these obstacles. We are collaborating with pioneers in the field of biofuels, and we are being coached by entrepreneurs who know the region deeply. We already are leveraging our contacts to showcase to some of the most prestigious hotels in India. But we need your help.How You Can Be a Part & What you GetJoin us! Any contribution you can make will push this venture forward. Check out the perks we have put together, to say thanks for being willing to partner with us. We are even featuring some of the finest products from the Kumaon region from some of our awesome partners there. Have a look!And if you can't give, we get it. But we still need you to get the word out - pass this on to your friends, family, coworkers, and random strangers! We appreciate your willingness. Thank you so much for your help!!A Note on PerksWe are very excited to bring these perks to you. Our partners source some of the finest materials from Kumaon, the exact region we are also working, and we know you will enjoy them as well. However, due to logistics, the final products are coming from various locations, and thus in order to keep shipping costs reasonable, we are not offering all perks in all countries. However, if there is a particular perk you may want or would like to suggest we offer, let us know, and we will do what we can. Lastly, please give 2-4 weeks (10-20 business days) after the campaign has ended for fulfillment of the perks. Thanks for your support!!Donate Now
Overview This campaign is for the beautiful women of the Masai tribe. It is to lift them up and empower them. To encourage them to enter education unhindered by cultural stigmas and by the challenges their rural surroundings pose to their health and hygiene. It is to lay the foundations for them to become more and realize that the key to improving their lives, lies within them. Dear friends and supporters, You probably know me through my previous campaign here on Indiegogo: 'Stephanie’s Masai Education Fund', with which I was able to take our community leaders to a seminar on land management and conservation in Kenya. For those of you, who don't know me: Hi, I am Stephanie, married to a Masai warrior and resident of the Masai village of Lesoit, Tanzania for over six years. Now, while our previous project is still running and we are actively making a difference in the way we look after our land, I would like to help our community further with a look at the essence of development : education. Masai culture is strictly divided between the sexes and there are certain practices and beliefs that go against the mental and physical development of women and girls and I would like to change this. Early marriage or child marriage is one of these practises. Masai girls are often married off as young as 12 years old - their fathers keen to get the 12 cattle the future groom has to pay for his bride. It is one of the reason why the number of girls attending school is much lower than the number of boys. Another reason is that Masai parents do not have the education and foresight to understand the longlasting benefits their children's education will give them. They therefore do not push them to attend school regularly or even keep them from attending at all. This is especially true again for girls. Unlike boys, girls face a multitude of challenges that keep them from attending school. One of them is the fact that they have menstruation every month. While this is not an issue for female pupils in the First world, it is a major hurdle for girls in the Third World. Why is this? Because these girls often live in rural parts of their respective countries as is true for our primary and secondary school in our village of Lesoit, which is far of the beaten track. They do not have access to sanitary products as we do. The girls from our school may be able to get them in a village which is an hour's walk away, but supply rates are low and irregular. The quality of the products is also very low and often causes itching or rashes. Again they are expensive. The Masai have no regular income as they depend on their cattle as a means to get funds to buy corn, their staple diet and vegetables and other things they might need. Often they simply do not have the means to buy sanitary products but if they do, there is another major hurdle they have to overcome. And this hurdle is called: stigma. Stigmas born out of ignorance and the ancient beliefs of their tribe. They cannot approach their fathers who according to Masai tradition own all the cattle (the women have no rights to them) to ask them to buy them pads for their menstruation. It would be shameful, it is something that the girls would never dare. So they help themselves by stuffing their underwear with leaves or cowhides or scraps of cloth instead. If they choose not to do that, the only other option is to stay at home and miss a few days of school. It has not only an effect on their efforts to keep up in class but also on their mental wellbeing. It is stressful and depressing to have to worry about your oncoming menstruation. This is what I would like to change with this campaign and with your help. I would like to bring to the 300 girl students we have in our local primary and secondary school, a reusable washable sanitary kit each. These kits are made here in Tanzania and contain everything a girl needs to be hygienic during that time of month: Two pairs of underwear, two waterproof shields, six washable cotton pads, a bar of soap, and a bag for storage. Each kit costs 9$ and will be specially made for us. Receiving these kits will make a huge difference for the girls' comfort and confidence and incidentially on the way they study. Another huge benefit of these kits compared to standard sanitary products, is that they are environmentally friendly. No plastic waste, no single use. Masai society is patriarchal and women are overlooked and often even oppressed. Sending girls to school and ensuring that those already in education, understand the opportunities this gives them, is crucial towards lifting Masai women from their low status and changing their role in Masai society. I am living in their midst and experience the many challenges these beautiful women have to deal with on a daily basis. I want to lift them up, empower and educate them so that they may become leaders in their communities and work towards making them safer, more comfortable and more economically productive places to live in. I believe women are the changemakers and I will continue to try my best to encourage them to start believing in themselves and in the fact that they have the power to change their lives for the better. I start with this small step and hope that you will support me in doing so. We have beautiful gifts waiting for you in exchange for a small contribution towards our cause. From Masai bracelets and blankets and earrings to an amazing immersive cultural stay at our boma. Please do consider supporting us and do tell your friends and family about this campaign. We need your help with spreading the word so that we may succeed in making a difference. A big thank you to all of you!Donate Now
Introduction By Lacy For 21 years, I witnessed men leave prison not only ill-prepared to reenter society and their lives, but some were worse off than when they went into prison. Some had become better criminals, some had become more entrenched in a victim mentality, and some were angrier than ever before. And we ask ourselves, why are our recidivism rates so high? In short, men and women who are sentenced to prison, are often sentenced with an underlying societal assumption that going to prison is the “punishment they deserve” for crimes committed and that their experience in prison will serve as a deterrent from committing future crimes. Clearly, the statistics show that one’s prison experience lacks the power to effectively change the underlying thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that motivate repeat criminal acts. I believe the answer lies in offering self-help programs, empowerment programs, and/or programs that get to the root of human behavior, the heart of personal change, and the keys to long term transformation. I also believe that a solid reentry approach would include these types of programming both inside and outside of prison that would work together to ensure a smooth transition back into society and set a returning citizen up for success.Following my own traumatic life experience that required a new skill set and shift in perspective, I developed an innovative, holistic, and transformational self-help program for offenders releasing from federal prison. This program was based in my belief that all people have innate value and talent, the ability to acquire a new skill set to change their lives, and the ability to shift their perspective to transform their lives. Upon my retirement from the Federal Prison System, I reconnected with over 50% of the former participants in my program. It was clear through the conversations with these men and their families that a different approach to self-help and self-empowerment classes prior to their release had a significant positive impact on their successful reentry back into their lives and into society. In this process of witnessing and hearing their stories of reentry and reunification, I knew that there was a powerful story to tell the world. The story is not just about those incarcerated in a physical prison, but a story that includes the realization that many people feel imprisoned in their own every day lives. Freeing An Incarcerated World is a story and a movement to help us all to Free Ourselves From Ourselves. Overview of the FilmFreeing An Incarcerated World is a documentary film that ignites hope, inspiration, motivation, and a profound sense of positive possibility and freedom in all who see it.Former federal prison psychologist, Dr. Lacy Frazer, is joined by John Milisitz and several other courageous men that share their stories of personal transformation while in one of the darkest of places, prison. The viewer not only bears witness to the journey from incarceration to freedom, but is challenged to look at their own personal imprisonment in its myriad of forms. Change is Inevitable, but Transformation is a Choice. Every man or woman who goes to prison changes in one way or another . . . but only a few use the time to truly transform. The stories of these men and women provide real life examples of the Journey of Personal Transformation and offer an illustrative map for others to follow who have ever felt trapped, stuck, limited, or imprisoned themselves. The Inspiration behind the Film Dr. Lacy Frazer describes in her own words the inspiration for this film and the progress made thus far toward bringing this vision to life. The Goals Of This Film Are To: EDUCATE TO EMPOWER - Teach people the skills needed to move from viewing and experiencing themselves as a victim of life to viewing and experiencing themselves as the creator of their lifeILLUSTRATE TO LIBERATE - Show people a pathway to freedom by telling the stories of others who have successfully dismantled their limiting beliefs, removed the armor, embraced change within, and chose a new positive and sustainable perspective to set themselves free ELEVATE TO INSPIRE - Raise self awareness and instill a sense of confidence that change is not only possible ~ but it is visible and accessible to anyone ACTIVATE TO MOTIVATE - Engage and ignite the interest of audiences worldwide to consider and embrace individual and collective change at a time that our world needs hope, healing, integration, collaboration, and new solutions to age-old problems of lack, limitation, and suffering The Impact & The Impetus for the Larger Movement2.3 million people are confined in jails and prisons around the country (prisonpolicy.org)The average American household carries an average debt of $137,000 (debt.org)19.7 million people battle addiction50% of marriages end in divorce1 in 5 people experience mental health challenges 45% of people have a chronic disease Millions of people suffer from feelings of lack, limitation, being trapped, or a belief that there is no way out of their situation. Many are conditioned to feel like a victim of life circumstances and are focused on surviving rather than thriving. It is these limiting beliefs that not only prevent people from creating a better life for themselves, but that keep them stuck in negative life circumstances.This film and the ensuing Freeing An Incarcerated World movement will inspire and teach a pathway out of limiting beliefs and conditions of personal incarceration and “no way out” thinking through sharing the stories of people who have been in rock bottom places and who found a pathway out of their literal incarceration by freeing themselves from themselves to lead an empowered, happy, and meaningful life.A 4-Tiered Plan:This film is part of a 4-tiered plan and vision to change the culture of incarcerated thinking as well as the culture of prison reentry in our world today. Tier 1: Produce a Documentary Film (Freeing An Incarcerated World) that illustrates the journey of personal transformation through the lives of men and women who were incarcerated, or whose lives were impacted by a loved one's incarceration, and who succeeded in transforming their lives. Tier 2: Create an Online Membership Platform that provides guidance, inspiration, and support for those reentering society from prison in the form of online classes, video lessons, interviews, handouts, resources lists, live webinars, on-demand motivational material, etc. Tier 3: Build a brick and mortar Reentry Academy dedicated to providing courses and programs that empower returning citizens to create a new life. These programs are profoundly transformative as they are designed to catalyze transformation from the inside out through a coaching skills model. Tier 4: Create a Reentry Coaching Certification Program that is designed to train those who work with men and women transitioning back into society from prison, through an empowering coaching skills based model. This film and this movement aims to teach people from all walks of life, inside and outside of prison, how to fish!

La Ermita - a community space that matters In July of 2001, I quit my job as a hospital based speech-pathologist to open up my own community wellness center, borrowing $6000 from my parents to launch this venture. I developed and published my own unique "radical inclusion" centered therapy approach and immediately put it into practice, initially focusing on kids with autism spectrum disorders, adults with stroke and other traumatic brain injuries and teen agers who were struggling with depression and anxiety. In 2015, with the market saturated in Seattle and the cost of living more than I could sustain running the non-profit, I took the leap to move to the small rural community in Mexico where I had already been planting roots for almost ten years. When I arrived in the town in early 2006, I began to ask folks what support they needed for things like depression and anxiety. At that time, as I was still an outsider, I was met with lots of "we don't get depressed here," or "that's an American thing to worry about." But as I continued to cultivate my ties to the community, learning to speak fluent Spanish, beginning to teach English and offer small groups for mindfulness and movement, the community response began to shift. Pretty soon I had lots of people, and particularly women, asking me if I could help them with various physical ailments. But every single time, when they entered into the tiny backyard studio I had built, they immediately began to cry and talk about things like domestic violence, feeling trapped and isolated, alcoholism, the stressors of poverty, and yes, depression and anxiety, I kept my reach small for many years, wanting to ensure that I had the right reputation with the community, that I understood - as well as an outsider could - their particular concerns and struggles, and that if I built something bigger it would be embraced and utilized and not seen as simply a "gringo" thing. I continued offering free one on one sessions, and expanded to offering twice weekly free mindfulness groups. I started offering free Bedside Yoga sessions in people's homes to help alleviate suffering and isolation associated with chronic pain - most people here not even able to afford over the counter pain medications. After my sister died in October of 2019, I earned a small but significant sum of money for being the executor of her estate. Erin was always so encouraging and proud of everything I did, and in particular admired my capacity and passion for reaching the most vulnerable among us. It only made sense to me then, to invest all of the money I earned from her estate into this place that would also honor her. Last year, finally having a bit of start up funding, a secure ground and, more than anything, watching the rapid growth and gentrification of the town, with the most marginalized of the community being further pushed to the margins, I knew I had to do something, especially before someone else did - putting in a "yoga studio" or some other space that would feel inaccessible to my local friends. The initial purchase of the land was approximately $22K and I have spent an additional $30K + of my own money to get us where we are. But the money has run out. In order for me to complete the main ground level space, that will include a simple garden, an office/library/welcoming area and a bathroom, I need an additional $25,000. With this part of the project completed, I will be able to open this healing space to the local community at no charge. I will be able to offer workshops, classes and retreats to visitors at a fair price that will help to sustain the work we will do here together.Once the ground floor is fully established, I hope to be able to build a second floor that will include a small two bedroom apartment and a therapy room which will then create a 100% self-sustaining model so that I will be able to grow my reach and programs to support the community. I have created several unique perks that I hope you will benefit from. I would love to have you come here and visit, to see and experience this place that you have helped to create, and to know that you have made a real difference in the lives of people who would otherwise never have access to the healing opportunities of La Ermita or a place like it! If I do not reach my entire goal, I will continue to build little by little, investing all of my income over the next several years to see the project through to completion. In the meanwhile, I will use the main hall to offer individual therapy, group classes, arts opportunities, mindfulness and meditation groups, and weekly faith services to my local community. I will also use it to offer once monthly "free" thrift shops - asking tourists and "snowbirds" to donate unused or unwanted items to a centralized location for folks who are struggling financially to be able to get simple household items such as towels, sheets, dishes, clothing, books, tools and toys. The Impact I have worked in community organizing and outreach and the healing arts, including clinical therapy for all of my professional life. I have a proven track record of making things happen. As I settle into my second half of life, I am becoming increasingly interested in small, personal impact over large programs.La Ermita is just that. We will offer free therapy and classes, as well as volunteer programs for people who are home-bound with critical or terminal illnesses and end of life care. We will provide a safe space for women of the community to gather and share and to know their own worth. We will offer a transformative, curative space which will allow people who otherwise don't have the means to even leave the pueblo to be able to experience a feeling of being transported beyond the limitations of poverty and lack of access. We will offer a space where kids can come and learn tools for self-regulation and valuing of self. We will replicate the experience of The Samarya Center, where all people feel invited, welcomed and celebrated. The best part is that you, as a donor, can come here and see it and experience it for yourself, and know that you helped to create this and see with your own eyes the changes you have made in the lives of people who desperately need these opportunities. I have done this before and I can do it again. Please look at my press, the videos about what we accomplished at Samarya, and the short documentaries about the community we built together in Seattle. I have the experience, I have the passion, I have the capacity and I have a solid start. Now I just need the funds. Please help to make La Ermita a reality.Donate Now
Who We Are Hi, we are Hunger’s Heroes. We are a group of undergraduate students from the University of Tennessee. Recently, many studies have been done showing that 1 in every 3 college students faces food insecurity. Having friends and knowing other students that deal with this issue, we are constantly reminded by how this issue not only impacts us college students, but the entire East Tennessee community. Having worked with food bank organizations in the past, we are all very passionate about solving the issue of hunger. Because of this, we are running this fundraising campaign to raise money for the non-profit Second Harvest. Second Harvest is a food bank that serves the hungry in the East Tennessee region. They partner with over 550 other non-profit organizations to help wage its war on hunger and poverty. Second Harvest serves 143,000 people on average every month. Our goal is to do our parts to end as much hunger in East Tennessee that we can. What We Need & What You Get We plan on raising $1,000 for Second Harvest. This money is going to be going towards the Food for Kids Program. Many kids do not know where their next meal is going to come from. Many kids only get to eat at school. So what happens after school or on the weekends? This is where Second Harvest comes in. Raising money for this program will help feed a lot of hungry kids during out of school hours that might not get to eat otherwise. If you donate, you will be able to choose from a variety of perks! Each perk has a monetary value attached to it. See what you can claim over on the right side of the page! The Impact Hunger is a huge problem facing East Tennessee. According to Second Harvest, there are 167,020 people going hungry in East Tennessee right now. Not only that, but 1 in every 5 children are going hungry in East Tennessee. By donating to our campaign, you will be making a huge impact in the fight against hunger. Last year, their Food for Kids program served meals for 12,680 children weekly at 280 schools in the region. With your help, these children, and more, will no longer have to worry about where their dinner or weekend meals will come from. Every $1 donated to the Second Harvest cause translates into 3 meals that will be going towards a hungry child. $10 is enough to feed a child for a month. $100 is enough to feed a child for a year. So little can make such a big impact, but we can’t do this alone. That’s why we’re asking for your donation of any amount. Risks & Challenges There are many risks and challenges that come along with running this campaign. One of these challenges can be reaching our goal. Raising $1,000 is very tough and it will be challenging to reach that goal in such a short amount of time. Another challenge we face is spreading awareness of our campaign in order to reach our $1,000 goal. We’ll be doing our best to get the word out, so see the other ways you can help down below! Other Ways You Can Help If you are not able to donate to the campaign, don’t worry! There are other ways to contribute to fighting hunger. The Second Harvest organization has many different ways you can help, such as volunteering! Visit their site down below to see what else you can do to make a difference. Also, if you cannot donate, please share the campaign, using either social media or the Indiegogo share tools! Every bit of effort helps fuel the fight against hunger!Donate Now
Overview A social impact indoor cycling studio coming to Arlington, VA 2019 Good Sweat is an indoor-cycling studio opening in 2019 that will not only be the most motivating place to get your sweat on, but will also be the first social impact studio of its kind in the Washington DC area. Good Sweat will take your fitness to the next level with the newest bikes, best coaches, and most challenging rides. Plus, a percentage of every single purchase will be invested in the community (e.g., through donations to nonprofits, or hosting subsidized rides for those who lack resources).Our goal for this campaign is to raise $25,000 in 25 days! We must raise all $25,000 to get any of the donations and we will use the funds raised towards our stationary bikes and buildout to deliver the best indoor-cycling studio in the area. We found the perfect place for our flagship studio in Arlington, VA and this place has such potential! All it needs is some renovations, top of the line metered bikes, shower/locker area, kick-ass studio lighting, a boomin’ audio system...and this facelift will take time, money, and patience, but with your help, we know we can get there. So we're here today to ask you to join the Good Sweat movement by contributing! I'm Ali, the founder and CEO of Good Sweat, and I want you to help kickstart our first studio. I came up with the idea for Good Sweat Studio while working as a local DC area nonprofit Executive Director by day and an indoor cycling instructor by night. I started thinking about so many social impact brands I supported (like Warby Parker), and the fact that none were specifically in the fitness industry (beyond one-off charity classes). After over 5 years of teaching indoor cycling in the DC area (all throughout my pregnancy too!), I realized I was onto something. My classes grew super popular, with waitlists on the regular...and I had built a community of loyal riders who all believe in the importance of getting that Good Sweat. Since the inception of Good Sweat, we have done two pop-up workouts, also known as “Good Sweat Seshes”, that have had over 100 attendees. In our online community we have over 500 followers standing behind Good Sweat before we’ve even opened. This Good Sweat movement has inspired people to get serious about fitness and make a difference in their local community. Help us reach our goal and raise enough to open our first studio in 2019! Every donation makes a difference, thank you for joining the Good Sweat movement.Donate Now
Overview Blue Market AK is Anchorage's first “unpackaged” refill store. Concerned by plastic waste filling our oceans and landfills, we wish to guide a shift to sustainable and earth-friendly purchasing habits by minimizing waste, shopping locally, giving back, and eliminating single-use plastics. The mostly locally-made perks will give you a taste of the quality of items we will carry. This campaign will help us stock our Little Blue Market Cart and pop-up this summer and fall, and open in spring 2020. The Blue Market Concept Blue Market AK is committed to introducing and making convenient an earth-conscious "unpackaged" refill shopping experience that will encourage a simpler, mindful approach to shopping. Our little blue market cart already carries a sampling of household and personal products in bulk that we will provide at our brick and mortar store in 2020 (note bulk food items will also be available at our store). You can find us at farmers markets and pop-ups starting August 2019. Blue Market AK employs the REFILL model of shopping to support the“4 R’s” of a mindful consumer: REFUSING single-use plastics, REDUCING, REUSING and RECYCLING. We also contribute 1% of proceeds back to a different environmental cause every month. We believe in taking steps to change purchasing habits, and we believe that people want to participate in change. We provide earth-friendly products, each one vetted by us to ensure vendors' transparency based on their impact to the planet, ethical production and business practices. You will save money by reusing containers you already have, produce less waste by avoiding single-use-plastics, and feel good about contributing to a local business that gives back. You will refill containers from bulk bins and liquids on tap, instead of adding to that drawer of bags and containers in your kitchen. This will be the first neighborhood market in Anchorage that carries a spectrum of goods emphasizing eco-friendly shopping, all in one location (fresh local market produce, food and cooking items, personal care products, household cleansers, and gifts that are locally-made whenever possible). Our Vision for the Brick and Mortar By backing us during this campaign, we will be able to secure a location for a brick and mortar retail spot. The atmosphere will be intimate, inviting, bright and uncluttered. We will be pedestrian and bike friendly. We will offer free on-site and electronically available information that contain tips about how to affordably become earth-conscious shoppers and eaters, and how to reduce our own carbon footprints. Space will be available for meetings, group discussions, community gatherings, or just hanging out. The carefully curated selection of products reduces the number of choices and addresses shopping-overload anxiety that bigger stores with hundreds of brands can produce. You will shop with confidence knowing each product meets the Blue Market standards of sustainability. You will keep single use plastics out of the landfills and water-ways. You can change the course of our ocean's and earth's future by helping us get started. Our Goals Raise at least $30,000 to grow our business beyond the little blue market cart: this amount matches what each of our Founders has committed, in addition to their time, to make Blue Market AK a reality. Each $30,000 covers approximately 1 month of retail store overhead. If we reach our funding goal we can recoup the start-ups costs associated with the business and the little blue market cart and stock our shelves for the opening of a brick and mortar store. If we exceed our fundrasiing goal, funds will go into the store build-out and additional start-up costs. All proceeds from this campaign and the little blue market cart go directly back into the business. We will not take any salary until 2020 and do not anticipate making any profit until the store front opens. Reduce the garbage in the ocean: minimal to no plastic packaging, minimal waste, compostable, eco-friendly, fair trade, locally made, good quality and not too many choices Improve shopping by slowing down: friendly atmosphere Benefit the customer: guilt-free shopping, connection to a community, friendly environment, peaceful moments in a hectic day, healthy, contributing to a solution, easy access to schools, work, larger grocery stores. Problem solved: Customers will not have drawers full of plastic bags, will no longer be contributing to the landfills or to ocean pollution. Items that are normally available only online or disbursed locations will be available here. Risks & Challenges People are used to quick-fix disposable shopping solutions (like plastic water bottles and plastic shopping bags). It will take time, patience and kindness to break through this habit that we have gotten used to. Other Ways You Can Help Some people just can't contribute, but that doesn't mean they can't help: Get the word out and make some noise about this campaign. Use the Indiegogo share tools! Volunteer at the Little Blue Market Cart or donate services to get the store up and running And that's all there is to it.

Our mission is to remove at risk cats from shelters and in to forever homes. Our hope is that Namastray will help to shape the future of animal rescue and adoption as we know it. Other ways you can help: If you believe in our mission and want to help - share this crowdfunding campaign with your friends, your family, and especially on social media! Summary: We have combined our concern for animal welfare and the love for human wellness to present to you Namastray, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Cat Rescue & Lounge. Overpopulation and limited resources are still a major concern everywhere. In fact, 70% of cats who enter a shelter do not make it out alive. Namastray is a cat rescue that will save cats and kittens from shelters who are considered at risk for euthanasia. Shelters can be very stressful for a homeless pet, and many are unable to thrive in that environment. This is our call to action. Logistics: Operating in the form of a lounge, Namastray will offer a relaxing environment to hang out with the adoptable cats. Our lounge will serve as a foster home while our team works to find placement for all of the cats in our care. A zen space free of cages allows guests to interact with the cats in a natural setting. We will offer a variety of services such as yoga, meditation, sound baths, and workshops that will benefit the humans and felines. Cats are a healing species, their purrs fluctuate between 20-140 Hz, a frequency range that is proven to be medically therapeutic. We are building a sanctuary dedicated to promoting healing and compassion, and it is only possible because of humans like you who are willing to give these cats a second chance at life. Our goal is to help you achieve inner peace while providing the cats with socialization and stimulation. We bring our love of self-care and pet-care together in the hopes of building some “furever” friendships. We sincerely thank you for visiting this page and supporting our mission. Your donation will change the lives of animals in need. The more funds Namastray is able to raise, the better the environment we can create for the cats and for you! Donations will be used for: -Securing and leasing a location -Construction to comply with CA zoning laws and renovations to ensure cat safety: flooring, painting, drywall, etc. -HVAC update and specialized air filtration -Licensing and permits -Hygiene supplies: washer and dryer, dishwasher, towels, disinfectants, and other cleaning tools -Medical care, spay and neuter, vaccinations, and medications -FOOD & LITTER -Furnishings: cat safe furniture, tables, towers, storage, on site quarantine temporary housing, and cabinetry installation -Yoga equipment: yoga mats, blocks, bolsters, straps, and blankets All donations made to Namastray are tax deductible.Donate Now

Thirty photojournalists on the front lines of animal suffering worldwide. HIDDEN: Animals in the Anthropocene is an unflinching book of photography about our conflict with non-human animals around the globe. Through the lenses of thirty award-winning photojournalists, HIDDEN shines a light on the invisible animals in our lives; those with whom we have a close relationship and yet fail to see. They are the animals we eat and wear. The animals we use for research, work, and for entertainment, as well as the animals we sacrifice in the name of tradition and religion. HIDDEN is a historical document, a memorial, and an indictment of what is and should never again be. HIDDEN needs to be seen by as many people as possible, and this can only happen with your support. Thank you for visiting our crowdfunding page. I’m Jo-Anne McArthur, a Canadian photojournalist as well as the founder of We Animals Media (WAM). My vision for this ground-breaking new book was inspired by the war photography that has shaped history. Images of conflict and suffering have always played a crucial role in exposing atrocities and galvanizing the masses. In her book Regarding the Pain of Others, political activist Susan Sontag asks who should look at suffering? When is it useful to do so? The answer is that anyone who can help should look, and that is all of us. Billions of animals suffer needlessly each day within the constructs we’ve built. We believe that the time to bear witness is now. Will you help animals by joining us to get these images seen? OUR PHOTOGRAPHERSHIDDEN represents the work of thirty photojournalists who have - and continue to - document animal stories. These photographers are the heroes who work globally to investigate and expose animal use. Their exhaustive and in depth work has resulted in some of the most compelling and historic images of animals that we have seen. Among them are (in alphabetical order): Aaron Gekoski, Aitor Garmendia, Andrew Skowron, Britta Jaschinski, Daniel Beltrá, Djurattsalliansen, Francesco Pistilli, Jan van Ijken, Joan de la Malla, Jo-Anne McArthur, Jose Valle, Kelly Guerin, Kristo Muurimaa, Konrad Lozinski, Louise Jorgensen, Luis Tato, Moving Animals, Murdo MacLeod, Paul Hilton, Sabine Grootendorst, Selene Magnolia, Stefano Belacchi, Tamara Kenneally, Timo Stammberger, with many others to be announced!The work of our contributors has been celebrated by Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Nature Photographer of the Year, Festival della Fotographia Etica, Alfred Fried Peace Award, the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival, World Press Photo, NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism, Sony World Photography Awards, Picture of the Year International, Latin International Photography Award, DAYS Japan, and Prix de la Photographie.Our photographers have also been published in and interviewed by publications such as National Geographic, GEO, BBC Discover Wildlife, The Guardian, CNN, Telegraph, New Scientist, Newsweek, The Sunday Times, Nikon Pro, Black+White Photography, Vice, La Repubblica and The Washington Post. Additionally, their work has been used in animal advocacy campaigns worldwide. SUPPORTING THIS HISTORIC BOOKYour support will make this epic undertaking a reality.

With the current Coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc, never has a book been more relevant to the future of all animals, human and non-human alike. HIDDEN will help propel us into a new era of (re)considering our relationship with animals.PROJECT IMPACTThe animals you will meet in this book are important, and the documentation of their lives is one crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to animal justice. HIDDEN serves as a document that gives credibility to the coverage of its subject matter.

HIDDEN creates historic representation, and we will make sure the the book will reach changemakers in the world of journalism, policy, and campaigning.
