The Water Project by Katrina (AppleTini) We all know how important water is, and that it's the most vital resource for survival.

With a donation as small as $10.00, you can give someone the gift of water for ten years! The Water Project focuses...

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation By Katrina (AppleTini) Meet Alexandra Scott, daughter of Liz and Jay Scott, born in 1996; this year, Alex would be fourteen years old. When Alex was less than a year old, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer. Though Alex's parents were told she'd never be able to walk, she fought this prediction and slowly but surely learned to walk with leg braces by the age of two, and continued to work until she was able to walk without...

Keep a Child Alive By Katrina (AppleTini) With HIV/AIDS so prominent around the globe, particularly in India and Africa, with a succesful cure still not recorded, there are many organizations fighting for the cure through educating and raising awareness about the causes of HIV/AIDS, donating money and time to finding the cure, and doing many more remarkable things to ensure that the future will not have to battle with HIV/AIDS as the past and the present has had to. One such...

Starlight Children's Foundation By Katrina (AppleTini) If there's one thing I've noticed about people in general, it's that so many of us seem to have a heart for helping children. No matter what sex, color, religion, orientation, or anything else we may be, a common goal seems to be to empower the leaders of tomorrow to reach their goals and dreams. For some children, reaching goals and catching dreams may be more difficult than it is for others. The Starlight Children's Foundation, for...

Article featured in Avatar - Volume 4, Issue 2 (August 2010). Dizzy Feet Foundation By Katrina (AppleTini) Less than a year ago, So You Think You Can Dance producer Nigel Lythgoe shocked viewers around the world with an exciting piece of news: an organization co-founded by Lythgoe, producer Adam Shankman, judge of Dancing With the Stars, Carrie Ann Inaba, and actress Katie Holmes. This organization, of course, was not just randomly announced on So You Think You Can Dance for no reason....

Article featured in Avatar - Volume 4, Issue 1 (July 2010). Vitamin Angels By Katrina How many times have you heard Mom or Dad say, "Alright, be sure to take your vitamins!" More than you can count? Yeah, me too. They don't say it for no reason, though. Specific vitamins are vital for immune systems; without them, we wouldn't be able to fight off infections and would always be sick. Vitamin Angels understands the importance of vitamins to children and infants: "Our mission is to...

Article featured in Avatar - Volume 3, Issue 12 (June 2010). Faceless International by Katrina No matter who you are, you are blessed with talents that you sometimes don't even know about. This month, I challenge you to look past who you are, on the outside. I challenge you to look within, even if it's just a little bit. Try to find your own talents and your own callings, and think creatively about how you can make a difference! One of my favorite organizations, Faceless International,...

Article featured in Avatar - Volume 3, Issue 11 (May 2010). Special Olympics By Katrina Many of us see Special Olympics related programs at our schools or places of employment. In theory, it's great, but in practice, it's far more inspiring than even describable! Think about it, the Special Olympics is giving athletic opportunities to individuals who would not have the same opportunities with any other organization. What's more important than the athletic opportunities given to these...
