We update our featured charities every few months. We are excited to announce that our current featured charities are:
In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson joined forces. Having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth, the young women decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.
Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying through their global movement, documentary film, in-school assemblies and educational curriculum.

Operation Smile is an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions. It is one of the oldest and largest volunteer-based organizations dedicated to improving the health and lives of children worldwide through access to surgical care. Since 1982, Operation Smile has developed expertise in mobilizing volunteer medical teams to conduct surgical missions in resource-poor environments while adhering to the highest standards of care and safety. Operation Smile helps to fill the gap in providing access to safe, well-timed surgeries by partnering with hospitals, governments and ministries of health, training local medical personnel, and donating much-needed supplies and equipment to surgical sites around the world. Founded and based in Virginia, U.S., Operation Smile has extended its global reach to more than 60 countries through its network of credentialed surgeons, pediatricians, doctors, nurses, and student volunteers.
Waivunia, The Island Development Initiative, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on helping make rural island communities better and happier. With the help of their tireless staff and dedicated beneficiaries, they organize fundraisers, community-building events, village visits, and training sessions for villagers and their volunteers. They focus on livelihood projects to increase income-generating capacity of islanders. They seek to catalyze donor investment in sustainable ventures that have tremendous social impact in island communities.
For Waivunia’s latest project, the Fijian village of Waivunia (which means ‘hidden waters’ in English and is also the charity’s namesake) needs $6,700 to complete their village community center that will provide a venue for the nurse’s medical dispensary, early child education, disaster evacuation, and to hold training sessions.
