The Next Phase of Aid

Traditional aid models have become ineffective at improving the lives of people in underprivileged societies as technological change and globalization increasingly widen the gap between the super-wealthy and the poorest people on our planet. New methods of empowering communities to build their own successful and sustainable futures through education and social entrepreneurship are taking hold.

“If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”

Better Business

It is no longer arguable that businesses that practice corporate responsibility, in a world facing extreme humanitarian and environmental concerns, attract not only more clients, or consumers, than other businesses, but also have better success at retaining and recruiting employees. As well, a recent study shows that businesses with a clear social purpose, that incorporate charity into their team model, foster happier, more productive working environments.

In fact, workers, especially the millennials and Gen Z, the next wave of young employees, expect to work for a business that gives back. Employees love being proud of where they work and company support of the community is an important part of that pride. 

In Vancouver, BC, Giving Well is transforming the way that businesses and individuals view philanthropy and create change in their community. Find out how Giving Well can help you integrate a social purpose into your business.

What's happening in the Salish Sea?

You may be aware that GreenAngels has a very special interest in the health and sustainability of the Salish Sea and its wildlife. We are proud to call the Salish Sea our home, and we are passionate about supporting the many organizations who are fighting to protect it for generations to come. Like many others, we were ecstatic to hear that the iconic Southern Resident Killer Whales, after an unprecedented absence, had returned to their home waters on July 5 - with a new calf in tow!

We have recently created a Facebook group dedicated to the Salish Sea that we will strive to keep updated with the most current events as reported by the organizations we follow, including SeaDoc Society, Salish Sea Institute, Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Salish Sea Orcas, Living Oceans Society, First Nations, Tribes and many others. Please follow us on Facebook, and join the group, if you too, are passionate about the Salish Sea.

We are connectors.

GreenAngels' vision is a global network of individuals, businesses and organizations working together and giving back in a sustainable way for the betterment of each other, our communities and the world.

We are working diligently to add more and more organizations to our database and invite you to sign up and contribute your own story. Through our stories, blogs and social media, we are sharing and supporting the tremendous work of amazing individuals around the world.
