enlightens audiences on worthy non-profit organizations that are making
a difference for our planet and humanity overall!
Each week we do our best to highlight these fantastic groups and
their message, focusing on the people who work really hard to do
their part in building a better community and world.
Please take the time to visit our most favorite non-profit organizations,
they can use your support, plus they’re all Charitable Donations

Monterey Bay Aquarium - www.mbayaq.org
The Hippy Gourmet discovers the Seafood
Watch Program, learning directly about endangered fish populations,
fish farming and other issues surrounding one of the world’s
last greatest sources of wild protein. Most of all the Monterey
Bay Aquarium reconnects us to ourselves, to the tranquility we all
strive for in our daily lives and is a wonderful place to visit,
volunteer and contribute to.
R. Buckminster Fuller Institute – www.bfi.org
To know about Buckminster Fuller, or ‘Bucky’ as he was
called, is to know about the ‘empowerment’ of individuals
to support innovation on this ‘spaceship earth’ we live
on! Bucky was more than an inventor, or philosopher, rather his
message lives on in the minds and hearts of those who see clearly
how the world can be made a better place, one person at a time.
Solar Living Institute -
Located in Hopland, California, the Solar Living Institute is an
oasis of good will and ingenuity! Creating life from barren waste

Institute's accomplishments! Check them out and see for yourself
where the future of homes, offices and life is taking shape in a
forward thinking way!

and corners of our neighborhoods, making real progress in providing
safe, accessible parks and playgrounds for families to partake in
