Carter, Olivia and their parents have literally dedicated their lives to building OMG. Working on a shoestring budget, they've grown from a simple idea into a world-recognized non-profit cause due to their tireless dedication. It's a great cause with great people behind it. They deserve your attention and support.
One More Generation is THE nonprofit that gives me hope each day. Working in the field of conservation, there are many times when my heart breaks over the demise of our planet. Yet, when I see the passion, drive, determination, vision, creativity, and sheer will power of the team at OMG, I feel as if anything is possible. There are thousands of nonprofits around the world but OMG stands out among the rest as they continually accomplish their aspirations beyond all expectations. They raise awareness, inspire youth, shake up social norms and are visionaries into a new world of global citizenship and youth empowerment. I applaud the efforts of OMG and whole-heartedly consider them on of the greatest nonprofits in the world.
I have had several encounters with One More Generation when Olivia and Carter have driven to Litchfield, SC to talk to children in schools about their Plastic Recycling Program, and I have heard them present to all the top ant-plastic fraternity at a Plastic Pollution Symposium in Atlanta. OMG also carried the SODA [Stop offshore Drilling in the Atlantic] flag on Public Alert Day when many communities all over SC came together to oppose off shore drilling for oil.
Olivia and Carter Ries, the co-founders of One More Generation have made presentations to kids in schools, local politicians, The Department of Defense with John Kerry, traveled to South Africa to oppose rhino and elephant poaching and countless other engagements. OMG is the most dedicated, selfless, focused non profit of which I am aware and I feel that the Ries children have brought more awareness to issues facing our planet than many adult run organizations. The commitment and tireless dedication is truly inspiring. And you can always depend on OMG for help.
The work that One More Generation is doing to help sustain animals and educate the global community about the issues at hand are just the tips of the iceberg. Their impact runs deep as they inspire young people to take action on their own. They are true leaders for the planet and it is always an absolute pleasure to work with them.
Wow! One More Generation is the absolute epitome of standing up for a better world. I have known Carter and Olivia (and their family) for a quite a while now, and am constantly amazed and inspired by the work they do to raise awareness of global issues, particularly while empowering the next generation to make positive change. The impact they have on their peers is something else!! I should't be surprised, but for such young people they have their finger right on the pulse regarding critical issues. OMG doesn't just 'talk' about solutions, they actually get out there and 'do' something about it. I have never been so honoured and proud to be part of such an amazing, forward thinking organisation. If they can - we all can!
I met Jim and his two amazing kids, Olivia and Carter a few years ago and they have been instrumental in helping me as I guide our school to become more aware of their role in environmental conservation. They are THE great speakers and educators for future generations to appreciate their world. There is no one better than OMG!
One More Generation is an awesome program! My students loved every minute of their time spent with Carter and Olivia when they visited our school to share their Plastic and Recycling Awareness Curriculum. We learned so much about what each of us can do to reduce our environmental foot print. The students keep asking when they are coming back!!
