On June 4th, I introduced you to Birthday Fairies, a club founded by a 12-year-old girl name Anna in which, with the help of her friends and other volunteers, has now thrown over 18 birthday parties for under privileged children in homeless shelters. Like so many others that give back whether its to their community or to the planet, Anna’s story is such an inspiration and I knew that I wanted to spread awareness of even more amazing causes.
We all want to do our part in making this world a better place. In honor of the selfless charities, foundations, and fund-raisers, I am introducing a category to my blog entitled A Good Cause. My goal is hopefully spread awareness about these amazing people who want to help our community and world.
On June 26th, I featured aFab Find called Spindrift Sodas and Waters. It was through Spindrift that I became aware of the foundation 1% for the Planet, because Spindrift is a proud member. 1% for the Planet is an organization dedicated to inspiring business’s to contribute 1% of their annual revenue to environmental groups around the world.
“1% FTP is a powerful way for businesses to help drive positive environmental change, gain recognition for their responsibility, and promote further action on the part of consumers and other companies.”
At this moment, there are already 1,446 companies who take part in 1% for the Planet and donate 1% of their sales to help over 2,991 environmental organizations around the world!
This planet is a gift and if we can do even the littlest of something, anything, we can make this world a better place for our children, our grandchildren, and for us.
