BBN teams reported 26 events and more than 1,800 hours of service in June! Our picture of the month was captured by BE. Orlando at a joint event with the Central Florida Freethought Community. The groups hosted a Pulse Remembrance blood drive in partnership with Target and OneBlood. Donors contributed 15 units of blood, which will impact 45 lives, and BE. Orlando also collected 97 science books to support summer literacy initiatives. 



Seeing is believing.

It’s an idea at the cornerstone of the work we do as a non-partisan conservation non-profit group. We believe that people will make the right decision when given a clear picture of an issue and what’s at stake.

We have seen the magic of the aerial perspective at work for some of North America’s biggest conservation initiatives. Our passengers regularly report “ah-ha” moments when flying with us. But the limit of flying in a small aircraft is just that — the experience is limited to the capacity of the plane.

For that reason, LightHawk has built partnerships with some of the best conservation photographers to bring that experience to the masses, helping promote awareness and illustrate impact.

EcoViva LogoFoundation Beyond Belief usually chooses four beneficiaries to receive grants each quarter, but one quarter a year we feature a single, game-changing grant for one innovative organization. The Compassionate Impact Grant Program is an open, competitive process intended to identify organizations with projects that are innovative, evidence-based, and solve community problems. Foundation Beyond Belief is excited to announce that the 2017 Compassionate Impact Grant will be awarded to EcoViva to expand its groundbreaking and vitally important work to restore and preserve mangrove forests in El Salvador.

Foundation Beyond Belief's many Beyond Belief Network partners were busy in May. Here's a run down of how these amazing volunteer groups were active in their communities all month long.

In Texas, the Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless held a Mother's Day Giveaway for the Homeless in May, and it went off without a hitch! Their volunteers provided flowers and treats to celebrate the occasion for recipients. Volunteers and attendees had a blast, and Austin Atheists received a lot of positive feedback for the great event.

They were able to help about 175 folks, in addition to feeding their four-legged friends (shout-out to volunteer Dixie for that.) There were a few volunteers that had to leave early to head to the Austin Oasis meeting, but, in total, there were 24 volunteers helping to distribute items. They were able to give away the contents of two large bags of clothes.
