Top 40 Social Good Trends in October

From Branded Climate Strikes to Tree-Saving Software

— October 12, 2019 — Social Good
From volunteering to donations, the October 2019 social good list showcases how individuals and businesses are contributing to building a better world.

There are many companies and groups out there that provide a unique service or advocate for social issues. Anjel is a grocery delivery platform that connects volunteers with people in need. 'Happy Family, Healthy Kids,' on the other hand, is a program in Michigan that supports children in stressed home environments and underserved communities.

Some of the October 2019 social good trends are incredibly immersive, designed to not only raise funds but also to more intimately familiarize people with the environment in need. A great instance of this is the SickKids Airbnb experience where guests are invited to visit the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the clinic.
