The Girl Effect

girleffect.org There are 600 million adolescent girls living in poverty in the developing world. By giving one of these girls a chance, you start the girl effect. When girls have safe places to meet, education, legal protection, health care, and access to training and job skills, they can thrive. And if they thrive, everyone around them thrives, too.   www.thegirleffect.org

 

The Pixie Project
the pixie project The Pixie Project is committed to changing the image of a "rescue" or shelter animal. While some animals come to the Pixie Project seeking medical or behavioral attention not accessible in a typical shelter, many Pixie Project "kids" are professionally trained, family friendly pets whose circumstances have left them in need of a new home.
With a fully stocked non-profit pet supply store and a knowledgeable and supportive staff trained in the art of "pet matchmaking" adopting a pet through the Pixie Project feels more like a personalized dating service than your mom's blind date set up.
The Pixie Project also serves a unique support function working tirelessly to connect pet owners with the resources they need to keep their pets with them. No situation is too big or too hard. "Nothing is impossible'" is their motto.    www.pixieproject.org

 

Stand for Children
stand for children Today, for the first time in our nation's history, the next generation will likely fare worse than their parents - unless we intervene. Global competition and automation have led to the loss of tens of millions of U.S. jobs in the past generation. For children to succeed in today's fast changing world, we must equip them to be proficient in core academic subjects, effective communicators and team players, and capable of learning quickly. Stand for Children’s mission is to use the power of grassroots action to help all children get the excellent public education and strong support they need to thrive.  www.stand.org
