Ten at a Time is a non-profit organization with a simple mission, Do Good, Ten at a Time. This organization started as a little idea that a few of boys could find a way to do philanthropic work while also having fun with their friends. That little idea has grown into having a huge impact on teens, parents and communities. Ten at a Time recently kicked off their 5th year of learning, giving, and creating awareness. Today, Ten at a Time has 10 chapters totaling 100 members of both boys and girls. By May 2019, these amazing kids will have invested $18,000 into hundreds of organizations and causes around the world, by simply pooling together $10 each month.
One of the things that makes Ten at a Time so successful is that the teen members research and teach each other about the critical issues facing people and communities around the world. These teens then decide on how they can best use their pooled money to help improve the lives of others. These teens have taught each other about important issues like cancer research, human trafficking, clean water programs, birth defects, physical and mental disabilities, suicide prevention, world hunger, orphans and adoption, drug addiction, deforestation, support dogs, homelessness, Alzheimer’s, natural disaster relief…the list is endless. These amazing kids have made it their mission to help feed, educate, clothe, shelter, and brighten the day of people – no matter where they are from, whether it be people in third world countries or the everyday person you might pass on your street.
