What is our goal with this platform?
The GreenAngels Platform aims at simplifying your search for organizations dedicated to making a responsible contribution to the environment and humanity, because we, ourselves, have found it difficult sorting through all the information out there.
There are so many of them great organizations ! So many good causes! The question has always been how to go about selecting the ones that fit with your interests, how to make sure you’re actually finding the majority and not missing those that might not have a great Google search engine ranking, because, so far, they’ve focused on their important work and not necessarily on their Online Marketing.
This is where we want to make a difference. We want to help you filter through and find the ones that speak to your heart, the causes that are working towards a healthier planet or correcting social injustices. We already have a good number of organizations represented on this platform, but we don’t want to stop here. Our goal is to grow our database continuously to give organizations and socially responsible companies, big or small, a platform to share their contribution to people and planet.
Why? You might ask. Why do you put effort and resources into this?
The answer is quite simple. We realized that getting people together with organizations that do good work can be a very valuable contribution to making our world a better place.
Who founded GreenAngels?
We are Ina Timmer and Dave Howe, and we grew up in a small rural town on Vancouver Island, surrounded by natural beauty, fresh air, plentiful water and the ocean at the doorstep. That's is a pretty good way to grow up. Easy to live an uncomplicated, simple life. Neither rich nor poor, but always having enough. Easy not to think about anything but our own comfortable universe.
We believe, that ideally, that’s a right all children should have. And it was this wish or belief that marked the beginning of Greenangels and our goal to work towards a triple bottom line economy. An economy, where profit is still important to grow a business but not important enough to do so at the expense of people and the environment.
On our website, we present these companies and we are telling the stories about our adventures and experiences in a series of blogs. Stories about how we met the good people behind Seawatch, how we learned about Christina Fast’s amazing foundation, how we helped Jane with her Africa Mercy Ship goal and many more. We’ll talk about good companies doing good things for the planet and good people changing lives for the better. We’ll feature opportunities where you can make an impact, whether you volunteer, donate or invest.
This is how we attempt to make a small difference. If you feel the same way, go ahead, browse these companies and organizations, and learn about how we can all contribute to the areas that we feel strongly about.
We would also invite you to become a member of this platform. It is free, but by generously giving us your email address, we have the opportunity to reach you and others and to spread the word about those organizations, companies and people who already do their share and more, to make our world a better place.
With the free membership you will be able to add your own organizations or simply to organize your search and combine the ones you feel drawn to in your own customized list.
