As we lead this community of start-ups doing good, we have launched events, books, projects and resources to solve certain problems or meet certain needs. You'll find a sampling of these below:
LOVE OR WORK
Plywood People's founder Jeff and his wife Andre are on a mission to tackle the question below. They are interviewing couples and compiling their findings in the form of a podcast and an eventual book. We invite you to follow along as they get started here on Instagram.
Putt Putt PUtt
This collaboration between Plywood People, The Kyle Korver Foundation and Ponce City Market welcomed over 1000 at the first ever event on the roof of Ponce City Market. In total, Putt Putt Putt raised $240,000, providing grants to over 20 local non-profits.
MORE OR LESS
In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. As Plywood People founder Jeff Shinabarger reminds them, defining “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope. We invite you to visit the website and watch the YouTube Playlist as you challenge yourself to decide what enough looks like for you.
YES OR NO
Every day, you’re faced with choices that require “yes” or “no” decisions, and there are times you feel paralyzed – either from fear of making the wrong choice or because of too many seemingly equal options. Plywood People founder Jeff Shinabarger helps you break through these moments of tension and transition with proven ways to move towards good choices. Discover the opportunity of becoming a decision maker as you learn the strength in saying “no”, develop your personal philosophy of choice, and start using a practical process for making good choices even in difficult situations! Find your decision making style and read more about Yes or No here.
BETTER IS POSSIBLE
The Better is Possible campaign includes 10 stories of social change, giving you a glimpse of the impact Plywood People is having on our community. Watch all 10 videos here.
#plywords is an exploration through social media of words impacting our work. Each month, we bring in voices from across the community to speak from their expertise. Past #plywords have included productivity, mindset, dignity and courage.
INTERVIEW WITH CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS
We were challenged by the present day racial tension, so we filmed and freely shared a conversation on racial tension in America with Hip Hop Artist Lecrae and Civil Rights Activist and Congressman John Lewis.
GIFT CARD GIVER
This is the project that started it all! Gift Card Giver is a social movement that was featured on Huffington Post, CNN and Relevant Magazine, among others. Over $300,000 in gift cards have been given to meet specific needs.
We invite you to join our mailing list as a way to stay updated on future campaigns and events.
