Ari Nessel believes in helping make things better and he is doing just that through The Pollination Project. The Pollination Project believes in the power of ordinary people to do extraordinary things. They make grants to individual change-makers with an idea and a plan to make their community and their world a better place. Their goal is to give $1,000 seed grants to individual change makers, 365 days a year. Issues they fund include: compassion towards all life (people, planet, animals); environmental sustainability; justice in all of its forms; community health and wellness; putting consciousness into action; and social change-oriented arts and culture. If you have an idea and just need a little money to get started, you won’t want to miss this show.
