Amazon Watch

Amazon Watch is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1996 to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability, and the preservation of the Amazon’s ecological systems.

Vatican Patrons of the Arts

The Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums is a group of people dedicated to preserving the vast and unique collection of art housed in the Vatican Museums. The patrons have been in existence since 1982 when a major exhibition from the Vatican went to the United States: New York, Chicago and San Francisco. At that time some interested people began to help us with the restoration of works that left the Vatican for that exhibition. Since then the number of patrons has continued to grow.

Blind Children’s Center

The Blind Children’s Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1938 by Southern California Delta Gammas. Each year the Center serves approximately 80 children who are blind or visually impaired and provides an array of support services for more than 300 family members. Our goal is to optimize each child’s development and opportunities to lead a meaningful life through a comprehensive program beginning with early intervention, followed by an educational curriculum specifically adapted to the needs of each student.

United Service Organizations (USO)

The United Service Organizations Inc. (USO) is an American nonprofit-charitable corporation that provides live entertainment, such as comedians, actors and musicians, social facilities, and other programs to members of the United States Armed Forces and their families. Since 1941, it has worked in partnership with the Department of War, and later with the Department of Defense (DoD), relying heavily on private contributions and on funds, goods, and services from various corporate and individual donors. Although it is congressionally chartered, it is not a government agency.

Statement Regarding Sustainability

From my perspective, sustainability efforts and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a landscape that includes NGOs, thought leaders, collaborators, and action takers bound by specific goals. There is incredible opportunity now for widespread cross-sector sustainability practice standardization, especially with regard to leaders (individuals and their respective companies) taking action for sustainability efforts.

I view one of my roles as a lifestyle blogger who is committed to spreading information related to sustainability efforts is to stay atop of sustainability goals, programs, and global actors and sharing out the most germane information which will keep sustainability efforts top of mind. I firmly believe that sustainability practices can be integrated into the core of business models, and furthermore, I see a future where a commitment to these goals can be seen at an enormous scale.
