Doing Well By Doing Good!
Actor Will Smith has an incredible message and it is important you watch this!
We know it is vital to have a goal larger than yourself, which for us meanshelping others succeed first, and Zig Ziglar hasclearly communicated this with the following statement:
You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want. -- Zig Ziglar
So the following members have committed up front the desire to help people through charities and non-profits by donating a portion of the income we generate from PeopleString. These are our are examples of "Doing Good" and we encourage you to do the same for an organization that YOU are passionate about.
Ultimately we want to build a faith-based homeless shelter.
A portion of my profits go to Angels Healing and Recovery Church.
We've been serving a hot meal under the bridge in Austin, Texas every Saturday for 8 years. We lead about 20-30 people to Christ every week!
I already support many good causes from my church, Summitview Community Church, to programs like Compassion International and K-LOVE & WAY FM radio, but I will also now donate 50% of my profits from PeopleString to a wonderful non-profit organization called Colorado Youth Outdoors, of Loveland, CO.
My goal is to be able to donate $1000 every month and with PeopleString I know I can achieve this goal by having others join PeopleString and donate a portion of their profits to support the charity of their choice!

My goal is create an income of $5000 a month and then donate $1000 a month (20%) to the United Way, http://liveunited.org/.
Their mission is to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
This is work that requires providing not simply services but also proactive, strategic leadership that helps communities build up their own capacity to confront the challenges facing them.
I have a goal to donate 10% of my earnings from PeopleString to my church, St. John Lutheran.
I want to support our Little Lamb's Preschool and our Youth Group. The future belongs to our youth.
I want to support them so the seed of faith can be sown in the preschoolers in Little Lamb's as well as support the older youth so they can attend Mission Trips and attend Life Changing Conferences.
I sponsor a cat cage and I donate my profits from PeopleString to a wonderful non-profit organization called Rescue Village, of Russell Township, OH.
About 3 years ago I adopted a wonderful ginger cat, Bitty Bob, from Rescue Village. I was shocked at the number of animals waiting for a "forever home". The shelter saved Bitty when his mother was killed while he was too little to survive without her.
My goal is to be able to donate $150 (for 10 cages) every month and with PeopleString I know I can achieve this goal by having others join PeopleString and donate a portion of their profits to support the charity of their choice too!
I donate 10% of my profits from PeopleString to a wonderful non-profit organization called New Testament Baptist Church of Vinton, VA.
My goal is to be able to donate more and more every month and with PeopleString I know I can achieve this goal by having others join PeopleString and donate a portion of their profits to support the charity of their choice!
