World Flix

Everybody loves their alma mater, and I have a stronger than average adoration for UC Santa Cruz, so I have a little extra bump of pride for a fellow alumna who is dedicated to changing the world, even though I’ve never met her. Laika Grant Mann has created WorldFlix.org, a new way to connect philanthropic donors with the communities they help around the world.

World Flix is an Internet-based non-profit with online video portals into communities at need. The library of mini-movies includes interviews with project recipients so donors across the world can see where their money goes, whether the need addressed is for clean drinking water, sustainable food sources, sanitation and safety, health care, or other ways to help. You can click over and see a short video about a Ugandan hospital’s need for mosquito nets, a Haitian community clean water project, Tibetan vision and eye-care centers, and more as projects partner up. 100% of the donations made through World Flix go to the recipient projects while grant money covers overhead. It creates a really lovely, easy connection much more so than a letter in the mail asking for donations and the impersonal process of sending a check to a faceless mailbox.

Connection = care. A great way to inspire giving.

As the website says, “See the Change You Wish to Make in the World
