The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products (seeds to foods), educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices (because we all deserve the right to know).

The Institute for Responsible Technology focuses on educating policy makers and the public about genetically modified foods and crops. They investigate and report the risks and impact of GMOs “on health, environment, the economy, and agriculture, as well as the problems associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and reporting.”

Have you heard about seed lending libraries?  Seed Libraries focus on enriching the community through sharing and educaqtion.  It works similar to a public library, in that you “check-out” seeds and “return” seeds after you have grown and collected from your plants.  Seed libraries are leading a way to “giving the land, food, and wealth back to the people”.  Find a seed library near you… Seed Library Directory – United States

Organ & Tissue Donation

Organ and tissue donation provides the opportunity to heal or even save another persons life. Each year, about 500,000 lives are saved through donation, yet nearly 18 people die each day while waiting for a transplant.  A single person, like myself, can help save up to 8 lives through organ donation.  Tissue donation from a single person can save or heal 100 lives.  Every 12 minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list.  The Donor Alliance contains all the information needed to help you decide for yourself and your loved ones is donation is right for you.

If you live in Colorado or Wyoming your can follow these links to Donate Life.
