The heart and soul behind Difference Created is to support people and causes that inspire others, spread hope, and give back to communities around the world. We want to use the abilities we have in web design, graphics, and small business marketing systems to support the journey of Difference Makers. We know there are so many people who have a passion to help their community, their country, and their world to be a better place.
We LOVE having the opportunity to hear our Difference Makers passion and vision and help them get it off the ground, or take it to the next level, but more importantly than that WE want to be Difference Makers. We know that the change has to start with us and so a portion of every project we work on or any product we sell goes to support someone who is on the ground somewhere around the world, getting their hands dirty and being a world changer.
Giving Back To The World!
I know, giving back to the world seems a little ambitious, but we are up for the challenge! Below are the causes that are near and dear to our hearts. We work hard every day to get Difference Created in front of as many people as we can, which allows us the ability to give to these amazing organizations, who are working hard to make a difference around the world!
SOIL’s mission is to promote dignity, health, and sustainable livelihoods through the transformation of wastes into resources.
Since 2006, SOIL has been transforming wastes into resources in Haiti. Through the use of ecological sanitation, SOIL is working to create a revolutionary social business model for providing access to safe, dignified sanitation that produces rich, organic compost as a natural resource for Haiti’s badly-depleted soils, while also creating economic opportunities in some of the world’s most under-resourced communities.
Feed The Children (USA)
Feed the Children exists to end childhood hunger. It’s the cause upon which they were founded 35 years ago and the one that they continue to fight for each and every day.
They know it takes the power of many to end childhood hunger for good. They connect donors, experts, partners, leaders and communities to attack the problem from all angles. They are taking a stand and they will not rest until every child has enough to eat.
The Water Project (Africa)
The water crisis is real. It’s affecting women, children, families and farmers. Women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa are spending hours a day fetching dirty water which leads to illness and disease, robbing entire communities of their futures.
We want to help our neighbors and we know you do too. When you support The Water Project, you help bring clean water through new wells, rehabbed wells, sand dams, rainwater catchment systems and/or spring protections to schools, medical clinics and villages. We believe local in-country solutions, through local national leaders, can help end the water crisis one partnership at a time. We can’t wait to bring you into the heart of their stories.
Surfrider Foundation (USA)
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Our ocean faces growing challenges from pollution, offshore development and climate change. At the same time, expanding industries, such as offshore oil drilling, threaten to crowd our ocean and degrade its health (and those who call it home!).
This is precisely why Surfrider has built a network of passion-driven people who are on the ground and are the voice for our ocean and beaches. With one foot in the sand and the other in the water, Surfrider is the only non-profit organization who is 100% focused on our coasts.
Carolina Raptor Center (North Carolina)
Carolina Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental stewardship and the conservation of birds of prey, through education, research, and the rehabilitation of injured and orphan raptors.
Today, the organization’s science education programs serve over 27,000 students a year in formal education settings. The ¾ mile Raptor Trail and Edna S. Moretti Environmental Education Center welcomes over 35,000 visitors a year. The Jim Arthur Raptor Medical Center treats 900-1,000 birds a year, releasing almost 70% back into the wild.
Creating A Difference Today (Worldwide)
As you look at the world around you there are always major needs that arise from crisis and situations beyond the control of the victims. We strive to support world events that need help, from natural disasters to wars, we want to support whomever we can.
Before giving, we always research the organizations or funds who are out doing the work on the ground and making the most meaningful impact to those effected. So this is not a specific organization that we are giving to, but more of a chance to support those who are suddenly found to be in need of assistance and help.
We Are So Proud Of Our Difference Makers!
We love being able to donate our resources to the organizations above. We believe in the work that they do and are excited to see them continue to make a difference. But you know what we love more? Getting to work directly with our very own Difference Makers and world changers! Over the last few years we have gotten to build and redesign websites, logos, and offer additional to support to some pretty incredible people. Want to meet some of them?
