“How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live 'em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give 'em.”
― Shel Silverstein
"Est. 2013 O.U.R. Rescue's organization, together with local law enforcements (current and retired), developing and completing extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins. It is time for private citizens and organizations to rise up and help. It is our duty as a free and blessed people."
"Idaho Backcountry Veterans is a 501(c)3 nonprofit created for Veterans by Veterans. We have served over 1,000 Veterans in our 4 years. IBV is a 100% all volunteer organization, nobody gets a paycheck. Every penny raised goes to get veterans outdoors
Every day we hear about new scientific studies that expound the benefits of being in the outdoors. Recent studies have found that boreal forests emit a chemical that is beneficial to humans in a measurable way, to the point of even easing depression.
Hunters have known this instinctively for thousands of years. Idaho Backcountry Veterans aims to get as many of our war impacted vets as possible into this serene yet challenging environment. But we need your help.
Mother nature knows how to heal our Warriors.
We are just The Guides."
"Est. 1982. Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate.
Through our expertise in treating cleft lip and cleft palate, we create solutions that deliver safe surgery to people where it’s needed most. Surgery is the first step in repairing a cleft condition, it can immediately improve a child’s ability to eat, breathe and speak. After surgery, we provide comprehensive care based on each child’s needs including dentistry, speech therapy and psychosocial support. This increases their likelihood of living a normal life, attending school and pursuing a brighter future. We’re committed to treating the whole patient because it’s the right thing to do."
"Est. 1980. Hope House exists to provide a home for children between the ages of six (6) and eighteen (18) (and then those youth who turn eighteen prior to or during their senior year in High School) who are emotionally impaired, developmentally disabled, and/or come from disrupted adoptions or dysfunctional families. Hope House provides a home for those young people who may have “fallen through the cracks” of other governmental and/or private agencies. Our mission at Hope House is to provide a home-like, family atmosphere where, through love, structured activities, appropriate discipline, educational and vocational opportunities, and people who will listen, young people can reach their fullest potential."
We inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.
Founded in 1972 — the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance — the Arbor Day Foundation is the largest 501(c)3 nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees. More than 1 million members, supporters, and valued partners have helped us plant more than 350 million trees in neighborhoods, communities, cities, and forests throughout the world to ensure a greener and healthier future for everyone.
Our vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, a changing climate, deforestation, poverty, and hunger.
The impact we make on our world is accomplished through our conservation and education programs. We work to restore forests, improve tree cover in communities, and inspire the next generation of tree planters to ensure this important work endures.
