SITES

Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada — This is an organization that you can turn to in order to get some of your questions answered — where the medical system is not. This organization is a not-for-profit organization that offers free peer support, personalized information packages, translation and a variety of other resources for anyone affected by breast cancer. This is a place that cares and shares!

Soup’s On — This site caught my attention. This is about people in Detroit coming together to be inventive and discuss problem and solutions. What better way than creating a supper club.
Two philanthropists, Kate Daughdrill and a friend co-founded Detroit Soup. Each month four local groups present ideas to diners who pay $5 to attend; the crowd then discusses the ideas over soup, salad, bread and pie and decides which project will receive the evening’s proceeds. Love it! $700-$1000 per dinner has been raised for more than 20 community projects.

Crowdrise — Edward Norton found out that raising money cost a lot of money. With his producer fiancé, Shauna Robertson, Jeffro and Robert Wolfe, they created Crowdrise. This site allows anyone from teens to celebs to set up a free profile to solicit donations for worthy causes. For every dollar raised, users earn bragging rights on the Crowdrise leaderboard and points they can swap for prizes like a Macbook, kindle or video message from Norton himself.

Respect Group Inc. — Sheldon Kennedy is the hockey player who brought to light child abuse in the sports arena. This stemmed from his own abuse from a well known and well-respected coach. Seven years ago he co-founded Respect Group Inc., in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross and its internationally recognized experts in the prevention of child abuse. They launched an on-line training program for sports leaders called “Respect In Sports”. It focuses on educating all adult youth leaders on abuse, bullying and harassment prevention including a sound understanding of your legal and moral responsibilities. The idea is to empower the 99% of well-intentioned adults working with our youth to help reduce this.

It is another organization that helps underprivileged children to be able to participate in recreational activities.

Blessings in a Backpack Canada — Hunger does not take weekends off. The organization works with local grocers to provide less-advantaged children with healthy, non-perishable food to take home from school on Friday afternoons. During the week, these kids’ families might rely on food banks or government programs, which can be harder to access on weekends.

The Rebecca Project for Human Rights — Saada Saar and Walker started the Rebecca Project, which advocates women and girls who have faced abuse, addiction, or incarceration for non-violent (usually drug-related) offenses. Their next goal is to save 20,000 girls from trafficking by 2012. Let’s help them!

Embrace — I read about this nonprofit organization in my Oprah magazine and was so inspired by what they are doing that I wanted to bring attention to  their site and see if you want to support this. Jane Chen, a Stanford graduate  of the class of 2007,  and she 4 others teamed up to come up with an idea to help premature babies in India that is low cost – incubators are too prohibitive.  After interviewing  the moms, midwives and doctors they came up with something that was portable and didn’t require energy. What they developed was a miniature, waterproof sleeping bag with a outside pocket that consists of a wax-like substance capable of storing heat at a human body temperature for a long time!
