026: Aaron Jackson — When the Intention to Help Creates a Global Nonprofit Be Where How? Show

    • Spirituality

Aaron Jackson is the founder of PlantingPeace.org, a nonprofit he started fifteen years ago when he was 24 years old. His projects focus on a range of humanitarian and environmental initiatives, including a multi-national deworming campaign (they have successfully dewormed over 22 million starving children around the world); a network of orphanages and safe havens in developing countries (two orphanages in Haiti and two in India); LGBTQ rights advocacy, the Equality House and Transgender House; and rainforest conservation efforts in the Amazon.

The team listens to Aaron’s riveting stories detailing the extremely DIY-nature of his nonprofit’s humble beginnings. He started with one rental property in Haiti to house a few orphans, which led to smuggling deworming medication in backpacks, and eventually international recognition as a CNN Hero.
