Pollination Project: $1,000 seed grants to individual change makers

Do you have an idea for a world-changing project that could bloom with some seed money? 

The new Pollination Project
is giving $1,000 seed grants to individual changemakers, every day, 365 days a year.

You can find information about how to apply on the Pollination Project website, follow them on Twitter at @Pollinationproj, and like them on Facebook.

The issues they fund include:

  • Compassion towards all life (people, planet, animals)
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Justice in all forms
  • Community health and wellness
  • Putting consciousness into action
  • Social change-oriented arts and culture

I've compiled a list people they funded in January 2013 below, and created a PollinationProject Twitter list so that you can browse through all of these inspiring projects.
