Push for Good: This Week's Guide to Crowdfunding Creative Progress

by Alessandra Rizzotti

March 9, 2013

This March is Food month at GOOD and 1 of every 3 bites of food we eat depends on a pollinated plant, but bees are in danger. Help host safer hives for bees by supporting Beez Kneez's bicycle-pedaled production, delivery, and education program in Minneapolis. Saving one hive can help save the production of food.

Manufacture New York wants to provide a collaborative space for independent fashion designers to create their work. Support a project that will not only make independent fashion more affordable and streamlined, but also encourage fashion designers to bring back garments made solely in the United States. See founder Bob Bland's GOOD piece about her project.

Tell us what projects you're getting behind in the comments below. Push progress forward, and do it for our collective good.
