I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and a Happy Easter (for those who observe/celebrate it). As promised, today is Good News Monday and the following good news article was found on www.happynews.com.
Bread for the Journey was formed in 1988 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Today, 21 years later, the organization has 20 volunteer chapters and is bringing healing and transformation to communities across North America through Neighborhood Philanthropy.
Bread for the Journey funds charities and projects that aim to: sustain cultural diversity, promote ecological conservation, improve the lives of women and children, develop the leadership of youth through the arts and civic engagement, and create simple systems to meet basic needs of the most vulnerable in their communities.
Bread for the Journey chapters have microgranted over three million dollars, every cent going to community-based projects built on the vision and assets of diverse communities to meet their own needs. The local chapters raise money in their own communities. Then, they give micro-grants to ordinary people – with extraordinary spirits – who have an idea to make their community a better place. These small grants, given to the right person at the right time, make a big impact in local communities.
