Some of the nonprofits & schools that have benefited from your purchases on localgivingtree.com:
Breathe Utah (BU) - A grassroots membership organization engaging affected local communities, creating partnerships and participating in multi-stakeholder coalitions to improve air quality in Utah. They emphasize the need for individuals to assume responsibility as both a cause and a solution to air pollution. Breathe Utah focuses on education and outreach, collaboration and policy change.

Children and the Earth - There are countless children worldwide that will never have the opportunity to ride a horse, ski or sled down a mountain, or even own a new pair of shoes--pleasures so small that most people take them for granted. At Children and the Earth they hope to fulfill some of these dreams and wishes. From a trip to Disneyland, to gifts under the Christmas tree, or a new wheelchair to a deserving underprivileged child, with your help we can save that corner lot from another convenience store and put down a lovely park and playground. All is possible with everyone’s help and heart in the right place. More information at www.childrenandtheearth.com.
Granite Education Foundation - Their programs improve student achievement, prevent student dropout, provide opportunities for students of low income families, and support creative classroom projects and honor selected individuals who have made an impact in our schools.

InBody Outreach – A nonprofit “yoga army,” to bring yoga to those in need. Their mission is to bring the deeper benefits of Yoga to people who normally would not try it, can’t afford it, or haven’t had access to it, but who would so greatly benefit from it. INBODY OUTREACH believes yoga can be an integral part of healing, reconnecting to self, and recovery and works to ensure that yoga is free of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, creed, socio-economic status, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability, and sexual orientation.
