SkivieGivie.org

http://www.skiviegivie.org

SkivieGivie.org aims to raise awareness about the need for one of life’s most basic necessities; undergarments. The non-profit collects and donates these undergarments to less fortunate homeless individuals at area hospitals, shelters and other transitional centers. It has been a whirlwind of activity since the inception and we look forward to the challenges ahead of making an impact on this problem that affects hundreds of thousands of individuals, including many United States Veterans (many whom have served in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afhanistan) on a daily basis.

Coffee Stories

http://www.coffeestories.co

Coffee Stories is a pay-it-forward storytelling project offering a voice to everyday coffee shop-goers via gifted coffees. Coffee Stories was created to spread coffee kindness and create community, to offer a medium for our society to empathize with each other over common pieces -- coffee and stories. We're striving to make ordering a 'coffee stories' coffee' as ubiquitous and quotidian as ordering a coffee for yourself; to leave the coffee shop kinder, more hospitable than we found it, and to listen attentively to what others think, feel, and are moved by.

ioby

http://www.ioby.org

ioby brings environmental projects to life, block by block. ioby connects people and money to site-based projects. All of these projects are conceived, designed, and run by neighbors—which ensures community buy-in, long-term caretakers and daily reminders of what’s been achieved.
Successful projects are then magnified, so they can benefit other neighborhoods—and the positive impact can ripple throughout the city. ioby is about having a stake in the game, engaging with others while you do so, and seeing and living with the end result.

Your City Sports

http://www.yourcitysports.com

The idea for Your City Sports was born in 2013 - while volunteering at an event for the homeless we learned that socks were the #1 need for people on the streets. Our vision is to create a brand of high quality athletic socks that are fun to wear. With every pair of socks sold, we donate a new pair of socks to a homeless charity in your community.
