Layups for Life Skills: This Week In Daily Giving

This week at The Pollination Project, we recognize seven individuals from across the globe who have projects that are leading movements of change. In Palestine, students develop campaigns that help out our four-legged friends while in Florida, law enforcement personnel challenge youth to a game of pickup basketball to demonstrate the partnership and support they have for one another. With these individuals coming together for change, we are reminded that our differences only make us stronger.

We wish our seven newest recipients big congratulations!
