How We Can Help

1.Education/Food

Like the hundreds of squares in my piece, there are hundreds of organizations doing great things.  Compassion575 uses 100% of their donations go to help build schools in South Asia. South Asia is one of the leading locations of the world highest childhood death populations.  The schools that Compassion575 builds provides a meal each day for the children, which has helped the lives of many immensely.

2.Water

Filter of Hope is dedicated to providing fresh water to everyone.  Their filters are pretty spectacular.  92% of their donations go to creating the filters (the 8% is for mission trips and extra help) but if you specifically ask to donate for the filter production part of their organization, they donate 100% for that part.

3.Sanitation/Prenatal care

DriButts is all about keeping babies clean.  They create cloth diapers out of a dry fit material that is easier to dry, and is expandable for growing children.  They teach mothers how to keep babies clean.  In some parts of the world, some people don't know what diapers are.  Dributts is also working on building a medical center in Cruz Alta, Honduras.  83% of the donations go to providing education, creating and shipping diapers, as well as building a medical center.
