Sociecity is a retreat and an incubator for multiple points of view that foster harmony among people, nature, and the places we inhabit. The Final Straw Project campaign just launched last week and it is an initiative to bring people together within the Natural Farm movement in Japan and Korea and tell the story to a wider audience through film. Reaching the $5,700 tipping point goal will allow Sociecity to cover travel expenses, provide stipends for the artists and producers putting the film together, and produce the film and start sending it to festivals.
Michelle in Training is transforming high school girls from urban communities into the next generation of leaders.

The $4,000 tipping point goal will allow Michelle in Training to start a class with 10 girls and the $10,000 total funding goal will allow the class to expand to 25 girls.

Reaching at least the tipping point will allow AWH to send over 100,000 pounds of medical supplies valued at $2 million to people in underserved countries whose lives depend on things that we sometimes take for granted.
