MAKING A DIFFERENCE SHOULD MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD,
NOT MAKE YOU WANT TO PULL YOUR TEETH OUT
"There's so much suffering in this world. I want to help, but I just don't know where to begin," thought every single person on this planet at least once.
There is no single pathway to making a positive impact in the world.
With a seemingly endless amount of suffering in this world, and so many
organizations, businesses and philanthropists trying to help, it is understandable that people get overwhelmed just trying to navigate the process. Unless you are willing to research social and environmental issues and strategically assess non-profit organizations, it is easier to just say that you can't make a difference. That's where you're wrong, but that's where I come in. What’s more, I make it a point to include alternate action items to account for the differences in people’s means, availability, accessibility, and transportation.
THIS IS HOW YOU CAN aims to connect the everyday individual with a variety of pre-vetted and impactful ways to make a meaningful impact.
Hi! My name is Eliot and I'm a social impact consultant based
in Los Angeles, CA. With a background in creative communications and strategic engagement, I know the power that storytelling and media has to catalyze action. Through
producing THIS IS HOW YOU CAN, I've discovered my true passion is beyond any singular cause or issue. More than just philanthropic consulting, I work to connect people with social impact opportunities and resources that are sustainable, inclusive, and have the power to enact positive change in the world.
