In today's fast-paced world of buzzing devices and 24/7 jobs, finding time is often the main barrier to doing good – whether it be volunteering, donating, or learning a new skill. A new social enterprise called Me to We is looking to solve that issue by bringing worthwhile products, volunteering experiences and more together on one positive platform.
Part of a family of organizations that includes Free the Children and We Day, Me to We sells products from handmade African jewelry and inspirational books, to funky T-shirts and assorted greeting cards. Half of the profits raised are donated to Free the Children – the same organization that Change Heroes works to support.
Aside from the shop, Me to We organizes volunteer trips to countries like Ghana, India and Ecuador, for youth, schools, universities, families and corporate groups. Participants volunteer alongside locals on various development projects, while at the same time taking in local cuisine and activities, and even learning some of the language.
The newest addition to  Me to We is the "Speakers Bureau," which hooks up inspiring speakers with groups across the globe. The initiative fits perfectly with the enterprise's goal of shifting the world from ‘me’ to ‘we’ — whether it be by giving, making choices about what to buy or what to wear or the activities in which we choose to engage.
