Every week seeds are planted with the goal of impacting individuals, communities, and the world at large. This week at The Pollination Project, we supported projects that are invested in providing much-needed resources within communities. Whether it's supplying volunteers to complete vital community service projects, building an inclusive playground for children to engage in social play, or putting dance shoes on the feet of underprivileged children in Los Angeles, we are sowing seeds of generosity and compassion across the globe.
