Top 90 Social Good Ideas in March

From Inclusive Runway Shows to Educational Crayon Sets

— March 25, 2016 — Social Good
Rather than taking the form of campaigns or special events, the majority of the March 2016 social good ideas come in the form of tangible products that support a cause. Appealing to people of all ages, this includes everything from bars of soap to bicycles and coloring books.

As far as celebrities that are expressing their support for leading global issues, Beyoncé and Big Sean are both putting an effort on raising donations in response to the Flint water crisis.

In order to make it possible for everyone to lend their voice to a particular cause, there are also a slew of apps that have been released that deal with pressing topics on everything from homelessness to over-fishing and peacemaking.
