5 Foundations That Actually Make a Difference

Sometimes we have money and are unsure of what to do with it. We may be looking for a good cause to donate to, or just want to see some good come out of a purchase we make. The problem is that we may not know what companies or foundations are actually making a difference with the money we are giving them. Here are five of the latest and greatest companies who are truly making a difference in lives across the world.

1. Love Your Melon

Love Your Melon is an apparel brand that has the goal to provide a hat to every child battling with cancer in America. Their mission is to improve the lives of children battling cancer and has been increasingly successful since October of 2012. With the help of college students across America, hats are donated in person to hospitals. With every purchase of a Love Your Melon hat, the Foundation will provide a child fighting with a little bit of hope.
