Review for Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors (ECO), Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ECO is comprised of some of the most conscientious and experienced individuals I have ever engaged. During a once in a lifetime crisis globally ECO adapted to provide innovative virtual learning opportunities and custom educational materials focused on ecology and fostering students relationship with nature.. The organization also enhanced its commitment to working on Climate Change with a specific focus on Climate Action and Youth Engagement. As an award winning female founded nonprofit celebrating a 15th anniversary of operations, ECO is making an impact where and when it counts. The mission and programs have never been more timely or more worthy of financial support.

Review for Lewis & Clark Montessori Charter School, Damascus, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

On the edge of the 'Silicon Forest,' surrounded by spectacular Pacific Northwest mountains, sits this one of a kind educational institution. Guided by visionary leadership, in partnership with a highly educated and seasoned staff and inspired students and parents, LCMCS creates a world-class Montessori experience.

Students are surrounded by and immersed in commitments to organic food and lunches; organic farming and local distribution, including participating in the local Farmers' Market; the environment; community engagement; a global perspective; student diversity; economic diversity; outdoor, music, and foreign language education; and enriching after school care and extra curricular activities. These commitments are forged from the principles of social entrepreneurship and innovation to generate broad positive returns for society.

All of these elements together converge into 'lightning in a bottle' to create a truly unique and holistic education that represents an ongoing evolution of the Montessori philosophy. With the rise of the information economy and globalization, the LCMCS experience is the education of the future. Countries with top-ranked education systems, like Finland, have taken notice and are incorporating many Montessori principles into their school curriculums.

Review for Big Life Foundation, Ridgefield, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe in grassroots and direct action conservation that is inclusive of local people and empowers them to be part of the solution. Big Life represents all of this and so much more. I could not be prouder to be a donor. I encourage anyone who cares about the fate of our planet and critically endangered animals to review their programs and donate today. Your funds will be used wisely and effectively for the greatest results - animals and their environment saved. At the rate they are being poached African elephants will be extinct in less than ten years. Many African rhino species are already on the edge of extinction. These are animals that have been on our planet for tens of millions of years and which play a critical role in their ecosystems. Yet we are losing them on our watch and they are literally disappearing before our eyes. The positive news is that Big Life Foundation and it's team of brave rangers are on the front lines of this battle using innovative tactics to deliver highly effective results.
