Please help the MakeGood Community choose an organization to support for February 2010. There are some very worthy organizations on the board this month to vote for.
SAFE - assists survivors of domestic violence with the appropriate financial tools and resources needed to enable women to leave unhealthy situations (www.newsafestart.org)
Team Will- a community of cyclists of all skill levels and ages committed to raising public awareness and funds for childhood cancer research (www.team-will.org). Check out some of their video trailers.
AFSP - the American Foundation for suicide prevention is involved with research, educational campaigns, projects and policy work (www.afsp.org). Here are some warning signs of depression and suicide. MakeGood found these suicide facts and figures interesting with regards to AGE and GENDER.
Buy Goats for Africa- When disasters or conflicts occur, families are often forced to flee, leaving everything. Sometimes they live in camps for years. Once their land is safe again, CRWRC helps the family to return. Unfortunately, all too often the conflict or disaster that destroyed a family’s possessions also destroyed their livelihood. One of the most precious commodities can be livestock. Should MakeGood help buy some goats to help families resettle in their land? (www.goatforgold.com)
