I love this organization and all the people involved in making this nonprofit successful. The Mini-grant program is amazing! What they have managed to do locally and globally to help create sustainability, raise awareness and make a positive step forward to making this world a better place deserves to be recognized and supported.

I am currently a board member of this organization and I feel like it is these types of organizations who really truly make a difference. We have a closer awareness in the community because we are closer to the pulse of what is needed within our communities. We have provided several mini-grants within the past year and a half, in various locations and helping various project, many of which involved children who are, as we know, the next leaders of our country. We continue to grow and our goal is to do all we can, as an organization, to bring peace, understanding and positive action and reinforcement to make our world a better place for all people to live in. We welcome all new members who have a similar interest and walcome you to join our nonprofit.

I became aware of this organization through Facebook and they are truly trying to make a difference. They have provided a mini-grant to The Creative Gig Project to help the local artists within the community find work. Which as we all know is a dying profession due to lack of funding and interests in our schools. I wish there were more organizations like this one! Because Artists are never going to save the world but they will make it worth saving!

I've seen what they have accomplished by updates through Facebook and on their online community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None. Just keep doing what your doing!

I attended Seedlings of Change annual fundraiser and I had a wonderful experience meeting the Board Members and hearing about how they are helping provide mini-grants to other nonprofits in the community and globally. Especially the mini-grant's provided to SAP to help educate children and the community about protecting our environment.

I have seen firsthand how this organization can help make a difference in our immediate community and globally by reading the updates from the mini-grant recipients on Seedlings of Change webpage.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just the ability to spread the word about what this organization is doing. Which in result provide more funding so others would benefit.

Seedlings of Change is a fantastic, grassroots nonprofit that works to bring awareness to important issues such as service, sustainability, and authentic living. The Girls Way, a nonprofit I work for, is opening next month with the help of a grant awarded by Seedlings of Change. Eveline Maria Smith, the director, has been a delight to network with, along with other members belonging to their online community.
