December Goal

Our church is doing Advent Conspiracy this year. And for the next 24ish days I would like to show case different non-profits that are making a difference in this world. But I need your help. Know a great organization? Tell me about it! Ideally, I would like to do one per day. To get the ball rolling:

Nike Foundation

Nike believes in the power of human potential. Both on and off the playing field. They are now applying this belief in the game of poverty. Nike tried to find a place where they could make the biggest impact and found it. Teen girls. If you invest in them, it leads to a powerful ripple effect that can not be stopped. This is the Girl Effect, unleash them from, poverty, AIDS, early childbirth and they can do amazing things.

What can you do?

  3. Volunteer. Check out this cool website, VolunteerMatch to search for your perfect volunteering opportunity.
