Looking for a way to get access to locally grown, pesticide-free veggies in NYC? I’m proud to be part of the core team at the Central Park West CSA and we’re accepting members through the end of the month. Founded 4 years ago by Forefront Church‘s Jonathan Williams, all veggies are sourced from Angel Family Farm and fruit from Breezy Hill orchard.

I am loving this clever campaign out of Olgivy Toronto for Dove. They created a photoshop action under the name Beautify, that simply undid all the edits of manipulations the re-toucher had completed and added the text: “Don’t manipulate our perceptions of real beauty. #dovepositivechange”
Curious to see how many downloads it got and what the reactions were but definitely an innovative approach to an issue Dove has been dedicated to tackling for over a decade.

If you purchased or leased a new Subaru before January 2nd of this year, Subaru’s Share the Love Event let’s you donate $250 from your purchase to a choice of 5 major charities.
Their program was started 5 years ago and though $250 seems like a modest amount from a new car purchase, 100,000 customers later they have donated nearly $25 Million to charity. It’s a testament that when it comes to triple bottom line programs, often the simplest ideas are the best.

JetBlue is one of many businesses stepping up to help with the recovery from Hurricane Sandy. They are matching up to $50,000 in customer donations to the Red Cross and offering 6 TrueBlue points for every $1 donated through November 30th. Click here to donate.
They are also supporting their crewmembers and company employees through a separate internal fund. A great example of a company’s commitment to their communities and employees.

I’m loving Cultivate Wines‘ business model – 10 cents of every dollar of sales is given to charities and causes that support education and basic human needs in communities around the word.
And through their program The Give, customers and advocates world-wide are able to help decide which organizations receive grants.
My favorite is Imba! – a documentary film about the African Children’s Choir produced in conjunction with Clear Films Productions.
