Global Support Mission

Jan 31, 2011

Isn’t it amazing that in this day and age a twenty-something American guy is actually able to partner with a Ugandan woman in a little village most people in the world have never even heard of? Global Support Mission is a pretty big name for the grassroots, two-man non-profit being run out of Travis Gravette’s […]

Dec 13, 2010

Our last post was about Cool People Care, a company out of Nashville, TN. CPC seeks out ways to be more intentional and thoughtful when it comes to being a good steward and serving others.

Cool People Care

Dec 8, 2010

So we had decided that our last stop of the On The Good Road extravaganza 2010 would be Nashville. It seemed to me that Nashville was the Mecca of non-profits! I found tons of awesome stuff going on out there….too much to fit into a week’s stay. So, instead of writing a long post about […]

One Day’s Wages

Dec 1, 2010

Upon arriving to the One Day’s Wages’ office in Seattle, our initial observation was regarding the size of the office.

Live in the Now

But even […]

We were able to meet with the founder, Lee Ravenscroft, to […]

Denton Water Walk!

Nov 3, 2010

On November 13th, 2010, the Denton Water Walk is returning, only bigger and better! Last year, over 20 individuals participated in the walk, raising $1,716 to help provide a community in need with clean water. This year, let’s make it to the $5,000 goal, enough to completely fund a well for a community. But this […]
