The Abundance Foundation was born from the collaboration of two co-ops—Chatham Marketplace and Piedmont Biofuels. They started the organization to carry out specific sustainability projects, all while teaching residents about local food, renewable energy, and community. The foundation's first project brought warm water to students in an elementary school through the use of solar power. Aiming to make all of its activities fun and engaging, it now conducts children's sustainability and energy tours that teach youth where their food and energy come from. Its do-it-yourself sustainability workshops teach adults about eco-projects, including how to make cheese, soap, and bread from scratch, and how to practice organic gardening or beekeeping.
As a child, Ruth Warren learned to value creativity over consumption. Her parents—who grew up during the Great Depression—taught their children to make ornaments from magazines, matchbooks, and bottle caps, paper dolls from catalogs, and even their house from salvaged wood and nails. As an adult, Ruth still celebrates these values as an artist and the marketing coordinator for The Scrap Exchange. The nonprofit company collects materials from more than 250 industries within a 100-mile radius, looking to repurpose everything from foam, paper, zippers, test tubes, fabric, and vintage goods into art and craft supplies.
Staffers have aims beyond just reducing waste and promoting environmental awareness: they hope to create a vibrant community. Alongside merchandise, their shop makes room for craft classes, an art gallery, and an artists’ marketplace of items created with discarded materials. Everyone is welcome to work inside a 400-square-foot design center, outfitted with sewing machines, a serger, a die-cut machine, a button-making machine, T-shirt hot press, and more than 300 reference books. The inspirational space earned a feature on Apartment Therapy, as well as Santa's nice list.
After being diagnosed with diabetes as a teenager, Brandy Barnes faced several obstacles, including feelings of isolation and a high-risk pregnancy. She was astounded by the lack of available resources for women like her. These experiences led her to form DiabetesSisters, with the hope of helping women of all ages with all types of diabetes.
DiabetesSisters aims to improve the quality of life and health of women through peer-support systems that provide encouragement, empowerment, and education. Along with support-group meetings held nationwide, the organization hosts SisterTalk blogs and forums where women can openly discuss and ask questions about diabetes without fear of judgment.
As one of 194 affiliates in the nation's largest dropout-prevention network, Communities In Schools of Durham (CIS) works to reduce the dropout rate by using evidence-based programs and connecting students with resources to help them achieve success, such as local corporations, civic agencies, and human-services agencies.
CIS places full-time staff members in schools, where they implement programs and form individual relationships with students who have a greater risk for dropping out. As part of its programming, CIS sponsors tours to local colleges so students can learn more about potential opportunities, gain inspiration for earning a high-school diploma, and begin to identify their ideal career path.
