Running Behind!

We have been extremely busy planning whats next and somehow forgot to report our wonderful outcome form our last event! We are proud to report our Wags and Walks event raised $15,000. That is the equivalent to saving 30 dogs! Coral the cat was also adopted on site. She was taken home as a foster and her foster parents fell in love and adopted her

-54,129 animals were admitted to Los Angeles city Shelters alone approximately
-13,000 we put down
NKLA (No Kill Los Angeles)

Join us Saturday to reduce this number. Have you thought about adopting a dog before? If you are nervous you can always foster to adopt! We will have all of these opportunities for you through the fantastic non-profit Wags and Walks!

More facts from the ASPCA:

-Each year, approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (1.2 million dogs and 1.4 million cats).
-Approximately 2.7 million shelter animals are adopted each year (1.4 million dogs and 1.3 million cats).

Have the courage to change what can be changed… you can change a dog’s life forever. It will also change yours in the best way possible!

Awareness. Consciousness. Perception. Admiration.

Here at Generation Humanity we like to find ways to incorporate giving back in all aspects of daily life. It’s about being aware and learning about companies that do more than meets that eye. Here are more amazing charitable companies to help you become a conscious consumer that Generation Humanity loves, supports, and admires.

Love Grown Foods is a Denver based healthy cereal company that gives back by educating children on the importance of eating healthy well-balanced meals, especially breakfast. Check here to see where you can buy Love Grown Products. http://lovegrownfoods.com/passion/

Angeleno Artistry is a Los Angeles based affordable fine art print company. Most prints are $40, original designs by local artists, and 20% of proceeds benefit P.S. Arts, non-profit supporting art teachers in Southern California. So why not add some spice to your walls and feel good about doing it. http://www.angelenoartistry.com/prints/

Simplicity in Giving Back

53

Simplicity- the quality or condition of being easy to understand or do.
clarity, clearness, plainness, intelligibility, comprehensibility, understandability

The outcome of a simple idea can end being astronomical. Let’s rewind about a year and a half ago when Liza, Colin, and I (co-founders of Generation Humanity) sat around Liza’s kitchen table brainstorming ideas of how we wanted to make a greater impact on the world. Beginning with ideas of grandeur and making major changes to the world, after a few hours we boiled it down to the fact that the three of us find great joy in giving back, whether it be working in the nonprofit world, spending a Saturday volunteering time helping kids make art, or simply giving that extra dollar at the checkout counter. In understanding this about ourselves we realized, so many of our friends want to find that joy as well but often “can’t find the time or the money.” We wanted to facilitate not only our friends but also our friend’s friends and their friend’s friends and so on with a simple way to experience this joy and contribution. Instead of starting a whole new cause to generate this idea, we decided give our aid to causes that have already been established. So Generation Humanity came to life in order spread the joy of giving back by putting on innovative events to raise money, spread the word about, and get new faces involved in already existing non-profits. Whether you are interested in ocean conservation, youth nutritional education, animal rescue (because the three of us have all different causes close to our hearts) Generation Humanity is a place to learn about and contribute to all kinds of charitable organizations. It started with a the simple intuition of three friends and in little over a year has grown to ten board members, over $45,000 in contributions, and over a thousand people getting involved in new cause. So keep it simple: Live your life, integrate your cause, help us start a generation for humanity!

Check out these for-profit companies we admire that use simple ideas to integrate giving back into their business model.
