Top 55 Social Good Trends in February

From Employment Initiatives to Emergency Notification Shoes

— February 25, 2018 — Social Good
February 2018 social good trends reveal various initiatives that aim to help homeless people, as well as unique innovations in health care that aid people in need of emergency services.

Examples of the former include the Lucky Well Commissary initiative led by star chef Chad Rosenthal, which offers formal training, mentoring and employment for individuals who live in poverty and homelessness in Philadelphia, and the Beam crowdfunding site which offers homeless people in the United Kingdom job training to help them get back up on their feet.

The merging of fashion and healthcare is increasingly prevalent, with one such example being the stylish sneakers that the tech company E-Vone has created. The sneakers were made for elderly people, and can detect abnormal movements or prolonged inactivity and send emergency notifications if necessary.
