Through research and communication directly with Awake Inc, I learned they're committed to their orphanages. They also did great work in the genocide in Asia. Their supposed LGBT advocacy and support, however, does not exist. The charity has not used their equality house or new transgender house toward anything good I can find. The most recent info is about the house being shot up in 2016. Great charity for helping 3rd world countries. Doesn't follow up on all its projects.

Planting Peace (Awake, inc) in an amazing charity making a difference worldwide.... Orphanages, a world wide deworking program (20 million plus children dewormed), elephant rescue, founded the Equality House, rainforest conservation, provided medical relief in Bangledash, etc. All financials can be viewed for anyone wanting to support this charity. Or go online and Google founder, Aaron Jackson and watch the numerous media interviews and/or read the many print articles. Truly a wonderful charity and incredible work.

I'm a former EMT and travel regularly to Central America (also Africa and the Caribbean) on humanitarian missions. I've been following and supporting Planting Peace for a few years now. The more I learn about the organization, the happier I am to continue my support. Recently, Planting Peace sent a team to help with the crisis in Bangladesh, and they were operating a clinic right where the refugees needed it the most.

Bottom line, Planting Peace gets stuff done!

There are very few organizations like Planting Peace. Not only has Aaron and his team helped homeless children in developing countries like Haiti and underprivileged parts of India since 2004, they also work to protect endangered animal species, and recently Aaron has personally been living with the Rohingya Muslim refugees on the border of Myanmar and Bangladesh, directly deworming diseased children and families on the run from what some international outlets are considering a genocidal crisis.

We need more people and organizations like Aaron Planting Peace (Awake Inc) to help fix this broken world.

Planting Peace is doing a brave, phenomenal job of saving young children...and adults, in countries that so badly need help...deworming, providing life saving water, etc.
Any negative review is unfortunately from someone who has no idea of the angels that work for Planting Peace, and the selfless work they do.

Absolutely top notch group of people! I commend them on their far reaching efforts with deworming children, bringing health awareness, clean water education, to the saving of elephants trapped in chains for years. I absolutely know that my donations are going to help causes that are dear to my heart.. Thank you Planting Peace for being the true heroes that you are.

This is a complete scam. You can see that their supposed de-worming program has served zero locations worlwide. The location of the office is a gay rainbow house in Kansas. The Planting Peace is only a gay rights platform and they offer no other form of humanitarian support.

I find that the non-profit organization known as Planting Peace is a sham and is serving more as a political background for the gay community rather than doing it for the orphanages they so desperately want to be noticed for. That billboard about Kim Davis shows just how mean spirited they can be; obviously they must really need to draw attention to their organization (nobody would care about them otherwise), or else they wouldn't have done such a thing. This is no "Red Cross" or "Salvation Army". Save your money and support a real organization.

How much money did they waste on that billboard to begin with, when they could have used it for the orphans? I would call them a bunch of idiots, but that would be too good for them.
