Mid-Year Pulse: Our Favorite Social Good Orgs So Far in 2017

Sometimes our work takes us closer to the trying events than the lighter ones, and in most cases we’d consider ourselves fortunate for that. Because through it all, we get to work on the things that matter to us, and we get to help our society, however little, in good times and in bad. So as we get ready to take on more work this year, we invite you to join us.

From solving sustainability and water crises to resettling refugees, these organizations are changing the way we bring hope to others. We’ve fallen in love with them. Check them out.

Plant with PurposeWe’re a a Christian development organization that transforms lives in rural areas around the world where poverty and environmental degradation intersect.
