A Better Tomorrow

Small actions make big differences.

The focus of A Better Tomorrow is to support literacy and organizations dedicated to helping children and education, and to support animal, wildlife, and nature conservation organizations. One could say this is a personal project of mine inspired by three people: Someone who never gave up on me, someone I loved and lost, and someone who instilled in me that the only way to succeed in life is to help others. This is not a foundation, but rather one author with a desire to effect change.​

HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL: "Advancing the welfare of animals in more than 50 countries, Humane Society International works around the globe to promote the human-animal bond, rescue and protect dogs and cats, improve farm animal welfare, protect wildlife, promote animal-free testing and research, respond to disasters and confront cruelty to animals in all of its forms." —from HSI.org

KIDS NEED TO READ: The best way to combat illiteracy is to teach children not only to read, but to give them the opportunity to continuously expand their knowledge and skills. "Kids Need to Read works to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children." —From Kids Need to Read

WORLD WILDLIFE FUND: "WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries." —from WWF

 

PROLITERACY: "Here at ProLiteracy, we believe that a safer, stronger, and more sustainable society starts with an educated adult population. For more than 50 years, we've been working with passionate people and organizations across the globe to build that society—and to create a world where every person can read and write." —From ProLiteracy.org

GARY SINISE FOUNDATION: "At the Gary Sinise Foundation, we serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities." —from the Gary Sinise Foundation

BOOK AID INTERNATIONAL: "Open Doors aims to create exciting, vibrant spaces in libraries where children can read, play and learn. Our hope is to set those children on a lifelong course of learning, literacy, and opportunity." —From Open Doors at Book Aid International

THE LAST ARK ORPHANAGE: This is a smaller organization . . . "The Last Ark Orphanage is a safe haven and sanctuary for animals and humans. Where horses that have endured abuse, neglect, trauma, and suffering are given the space, freedom, and love to heal and reconnect with the herd in the lap of nature herself." —from The Last Ark Orphanage

BIG BROTHERS, BIG SISTERS: Whether donating with your time or money, this is a great organization to help youth. If you volunteer and have the opportunity to share a passion for literacy directly with someone who may really need or want that connection.

There are so many worthy organizations that need help, and every donation, volunteer, and social share makes a difference. The organizations shared here are larger, but it's often the smaller ones who need the most help. Look to local shelters and animal rescues, volunteer to clean up a highway section or help by spreading the word.
