Fred H. is the iGive Super Shopper for the month of December! In only one month, he raised over $150 for his cause, Fisheries Conservation Foundation, of Champaign, IL.
Kim Stanhope sent us the following update:
We at the Fisheries Conservation Foundation work hard to promote and preserve freshwater and marine fishery resources while informing decision makers on the best management of these resources. We currently are working on several projects:
1) Mahaseer Conservation in Bhutan
2) Bonefish Tracking in The Bahamas
3) Native Fish Conservation Area designation of the Little Tennessee River Basin
As a thank you for all he’s done on behalf of his cause, iGive.com has teamed up with Bass Pro Shops to provide Fred with a $100 Gift Card.
Karan C. is this month’s Super Shopper! Karan raised over $1,000 in one month.
That’s right – OVER ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS has been raised by one member for Maharishi School, in Fairfield, IA. This non-profit private school serves pre-school through grade 12 students, with college prep courses and an average student-to-faculty ration of 12:1. Fully accredited, Maharashi school offers a unique program of consciousness-based education that develops the full potential of its students, while giving them firm grounding in all the traditional subjects.
In addition to the Consciousness-Based Education offered, the Maharashi School and the town of Fairfield are leading the way in Sustainability, Solar Power, and Seed to Table initiatives.
iGive.com and eBooks have partnered to send Karan a $100.00 gift certificate. Congrats & keep up the good work!
When we see something cool and good, we like to share. Periodically, we’ll highlight a company or project that we think is interesting and shareworthy. They probably aren’t ready yet to be an iGive store, but that shouldn’t stop you from thinking about their efforts.
This month we’re introducing you to Karma Trik. Karma Trik is a clothing item for women that can be worn at least 15 ways. This innovative product is versatile, simple and sustainable. Not only is the company mission “buy less, use more,” but the cloth for this project is made from plastic bottles in Haiti, a country with no other recycling infrastructure, providing jobs in an economy that is rebuilding. The cloth is brought to the U.S. where it’s crafted artfully. It is sewn at an employee owned co-op in North Carolina.
Take a look at Karma Trik. It’s cool, it’s new, and sounds useful. It’s an Indiegogo project, so if you like it, read about how you can support its development, the risks associated with the project, and maybe get your very own!
