When a compassionate heart is moved to make a difference, it ignites change. Through advocacy, awareness, information, and resources this week's grantees are creating sustainable communities that care about the needs of people. Through daily seed grants The Pollination Project supports grantees who care about, not only the communities in which they live, but communities around the globe. Whether it's peace and social justice, reproductive health, farms and pollinator gardens, inclusion, animals rights and food justice, or creating sanitary conditions for a community center in Mexico -- global compassion is evident.
