We may call nurses humanitarian super heroes for any number of reasons, but at the end of the day they are people just like the rest of us. For one nurse who for decades has been a champion and advocate for her patients and their families through some tough medical therapies – even death, the reality of COVID is beyond her imagination. For another, nursing was not where his career began, but a shift has brought a sense of purpose in caring for both his ICU patients, and his comrades in arms. It’s called ‘One’s breath’ and our story starts here.
Maria Yuan learned the meaning of democratic civic engagement by witnessing the journey of her immigrant family and how they embraced their duties as new American citizens. For another, Emma Welsh-Huggins, it was a college experience: a broad range of social science studies and a keen eye to the benefits of civic engagement. It's called “Now what?” and our story starts here.
Sound of Silence
Imagine, or maybe you don’t have to, caring for a dependent with a sensory processing disorder. In the United States alone 1 in 20 people - children, teens and adults, experience some degree of difficulty filtering information from one or more of their heightened seven senses. An overload of stimuli to their sight, hearing, sense of touch, taste and smell, balance and body awareness, become stressful, painful or even terrifying - sometimes resulting in overtly panicked responses. It’s confusing and exhausting. So, what happens when a Pittsburgh airport heavy equipment operator reluctantly drops a letter in his workplace suggestion box, and the CEO responds in a big way? How does a simple ask create a special bond between him and an otherwise unfamiliar co-worker? And how does their work create a lasting impression on a Denver mom whose visit to the Steel City was not only bearable, but a beacon?
Brother, can you spare a quarter?
Modern philanthropy is known as the powerful impact of kindness directed towards stranger, setting out to improve the human experience. Put giving and wealth together, these two very complimentary instruments allow us to address and work to answer global issues creatively, constructively and with purpose. But with giving patterns focused on 60+ US population and each averaging only two donations each year, what gives? What if technology could change the giving landscape and people’s behaviors? Empowering younger generations to also get involved with global issues and from a place they know best – their smartphone. For a group of do-good student entrepreneurs their mission was to build a software that would give wings to a much larger itch: rewire emerging humanity with hope.
This is a true, ongoing story of David versus Goliath. Of a tiny, 100-year-old Baptist church that – like David, stands alone in stark contrast to its neighbors – a towering apartment building to one side and a parking lot and open construction site to the other where church elders decry desecration of the remains of their enslaved African ancestors. For an unrelenting parishioner and her team, they are determined in their mission to memorialize the men, women and children who are buried there, and finally grant them a dignified place of eternal rest. It’s called Forgotten and our story starts here.
What if a large cappuccino could significantly change a person’s life. Sound implausible? Think again. For one woman, opening a small restaurant staffed by at-risk youth was her first step in mending a hole in the social justice system. It’s called Brewed and our story starts here.
