Our Track Record
We've helped over ten thousand kids gain access to a quality education, in 7 countries, in 54 different villages, all while helping to create 34 jobs both in the developing world by making uniforms locally and here in the USA by employing people transitioning from homelessness to package our Impact Kits. *Progress is updated every 90 days.
We are a nonprofit movement that exists to make poverty personal by serving as a megaphone for those in need and mobilizing you to empower them.
The vision is to reimagine charity. The vision is that those alleviating poverty wouldn't just know of, but genuinely know those experiencing it. The vision is to stop calling our neighbors "the poor", but to call them by their names.This vision is fueled by a perpetual hope that another world is possible. The vision is a bunch of ragtag, storytelling, mischief-making, radicals, charging the hill to end extreme poverty in our lifetime. This vision is to do anything but "keep calm and carry on". The vision is to get angry with injustice and creatively liberate those bound by it.
Across the sea
For children in developing countries, a uniform is required for school. The small cost of a uniform made locally ensures that children are given access to education, thus lifting these kids from a cycle of poverty.
Across the street
The Impact Kit that we send you as a thank you, is made by employing our neighbors transitioning homelessness so that your donation across the sea makes a difference across the street.

Hear from our founder, James. (38 min)
Empowerment, not enablement, elevates people to be givers instead of permanent recipients.
Friends don't let friends experience poverty. Relationships end human suffering.
Idealists might be dreamers, but they are the only ones who have ever changed the world.
Stories have more transformative power than we could imagine. We use them to fight injustice.
We've kept our "100% to the cause" promise for nearly a decade because of the generous support given to us by our Woven Team! So when you give to our 90 day campaigns you can be sure that $0 is kept for our administrative cost. The only scenario where we'd designate funds to grow our operations is when a donor declines their Impact Kit.
We can't help people without the help of people. That being said, we choose only the best and most efficient people to work with. We are currently partners with 410 Bridge who are some of our favorite friends on earth. Our partnership with them helps us make an impact in Kenya and Haiti! Saint Francis house is our domestic partner in the Unites States. We employ people transitioning from homelessness through that partnership. Their methods are so good. Stalk 'em out.
