Killing With Kindness: Week 5

Inspired by what we know historically was Jesus’s encouragement of all people to be kind to each other, every day through April 5 the National Geographic Channel is putting a daily spotlight on organizations that help to spread kindness in the world. We are now four weeks in to that 40-day campaign, which we are calling “Killing With Kindness.” You can catch up on the first four weeks worth of featured organizations here: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, or on social media using #killingwithkindness. Below is a list of this week’s organizations.

 

THIS WEEK’S ORGANIZATIONS:

We are North America’s oldest and largest network of independent faith-based crisis shelters and rehabilitation centers offering radical hospitality in Jesus name. AGRM exists to proclaim the passion of Jesus toward the hungry, homeless, abused and addicted; and to accelerate quality and effectiveness in member missions. If you need help to locate an overnight shelter, recovery program, or maybe just a place where someone will listen to your story and give counsel, you’ll find it here: www.agrm.org/agrm/Locate_a_Mission.asp

Got Your 6 facilitates collaboration amongst the campaign’s many partners, because widespread social change is best achieved through collective impact. Through entertainment industry partners, Got Your 6 works to normalize the depictions of veterans on film and television to dispel common myths about the veteran population. Through nonprofit and government partners, Got Your 6 ensures successful veteran reintegration and empowers veterans to lead here at home. Together, Got Your 6 and its partners are shifting public perceptions so that veterans’ leadership and skills are recognized and utilized at home to strengthen communities.

Together with communities, FoodCorps serves to connect kids to healthy food in school. We are creating a future in which all our nation’s children––regardless of class, race, or geography––know what healthy food is, care where it comes from, and eat it every day. Through our work, future generations will grow up to lead healthier and more productive lives. We believe big things are possible. We are committed to building a solution that matches the vast scale of the problem, and to approaching and evaluating our work with a rigor that makes our ambitious vision a reality. We believe everyone should be welcome at the table. Ensuring that all our nation’s children have the chance to eat healthy food requires us to embrace working across individual, cultural and political differences.

Embrace Global’s mission is to advance maternal and child health by delivering innovative solutions to the world’s most vulnerable populations. We catalyze the creation of new products with strong potential to improve health outcomes in developing countries, distribute those products directly to the people who need them most, and integrate them into public health programs to have a deeper and more lasting impact on the communities we serve. Our primary goal is to help save the lives of low birth weight and premature infants by distributing an inexpensive and effective infant warmer in conjunction with education programs that address the root causes of neonatal hypothermia. We believe that every woman and child deserves an equal chance for a healthy life.
