The heart and soul behind Difference Created is to support and promote people and causes that inspire others, spread hope, and give back to communities around the world. We want to use all of the abilities we have, 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, 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 want you to learn more about AMAZING organizations, who are working hard to make a difference in their local communities and around the world!
Please take some time to read all about these groups, visit their websites, give, volunteer…. give back to organizations that are giving back to the world!
Carolina Raptor Center
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.
Ada Jenkins Center
Ada Jenkins Center exists to help people in their community build lasting solutions to health, education, and economic stability in Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville NC. Ada Jenkins is the only center in the area that provides comprehensive services all under one roof, making it easier for our client partners to save both time and money.
Their services include: a food pantry, case management services, financial education, employment assistance, medical care for the uninsured, dental care for the uninsured, community health nursing, after-school education and enrichment.
While their services are free, they do not provide handouts. The individuals served are client-partners, and work with them to build economic independence.
Carolina Tiger Rescue
Carolina Tiger Rescue’s mission is saving and protecting wild cats in captivity and in the wild. They believe the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild. Therefore, they believe it is critical to conserve their native habitats. They believe wild animals should not be kept as pets.
Lastly, they believe all wild animals, both captive and in their native habitats, deserve to be treated with respect and not exploited for entertainment and commercial purposes. In order to be true to our mission and values, Carolina Tiger Rescue focuses on three main areas: Rescue, Education, and Advocacy.
Save The Children
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. They do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we all share, offering programs in health & nutrition, education, emergencies, HIV/AIDS, hunger & livelihood, public policy & advocacy, and child protection.
Millions of children in the U.S. and around the world still aren’t getting what they deserve. We’re talking about children in need. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future. The world’s children deserve better.
The Water Project
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.
Creating A Difference Today
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?
