Review for Sustainable Harvest International, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I always balance my business instinct for due diligence, with my intuition. Call it a decision making marriage between my brain and my gut. Metrics matter, but Karma is king. And SHI plants Karmic seeds aplenty, while also ensuring they grow.

When my daughter and I started our research to identify the best possible charity to support for the service component of her Bat Mitzvah project, Sustainable Harvest International wasn’t even on our radar. There are simply so many other well known causes competing for attention that we almost missed the gem that is SHI. Thank goodness we didn’t.

We had set a high bar. We wanted a cause that simultaneously attended to rain forest preservation and economic empowerment for the rural poor. My daughter was equally passionate about saving the planet and directly improving people’s lives. Moreover, we wanted assurance that our efforts would strongly impact those in need, and we wanted to feel a connection to the organization and the people who run it. We had questions, and requests, and tight deadlines. The efficient, warm and responsive staff at SHI gave us concierge level attention, but with the twinkle you get from people who are motivated by mission instead of money. They were fast, thorough and endearing.

Give to SHI and know that your money will go far to help people (and plants) a world away, and your generosity will touch their servants right here in the USA.
