Top 100 Social Good Ideas in July

From Bedazzled Transgender Art to Barista Bachelor Initiatives

— July 25, 2015 — Social Good
July 2015 social good ideas are clearly a sign of the times. These innovations look not just at the work charities and educational establishments are doing, but at ways social businesses are impacting the economy and ways corporations can give back to society.

This summer marks a historic amount of change for the LGBTQ community. Many brands are showing their support for gay rights and the recent Supreme Court decision that made gay marriage legal across the United States. This includes a plethora of rainbow themed products that also celebrate Pride in a variety of cities and countries worldwide. The Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair cover also resulted in a conversation about being transgender.

Education is another big focus, even though school is out for most kids in the global north. Many of the academic July 2015 social good ideas are about removing the barriers that prevent children from accessing education in other parts of the world.
