Rally to Restore Unity

posted by Jason Boyett

This week, my friend Rachel Held Evans is hosting an online “Rally to Restore Unity” at her blog for a simple reason: she believes “we can disagree without calling each other heretics.” I’m totally on-board with that, so today I […]

This Christmas, Redeem the Goat

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the centuries, goats have gotten a bad rap. In the Old Testament, a goat was used as a representation of people’s sins (the “scapegoat“). In the New Testament, when Jesus talked about separating “the sheep and the goats,” it […]

Open Our Eyes: Seeing the Invisible People of Homelessness

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the first book projects I ever proposed was an idea I called “Interviews with Homeless People.” If you can’t tell from the clever title, I wanted to go down to the local soup kitchen and sit down with […]

Interview: Lauren Sawyer of Preemptive Love Coalition

posted by Jason Boyett

My relationship with Preemptive Love Coalition is a complicated one, and it’s a story I’ve told elsewhere and won’t get into here. You can read more about it here and here. But suffice it to say, this is one of […]

Ride:Well Tour Participant Chase Livingston

posted by Jason Boyett

Chase Livington has been a reader of this blog since he won one of my contests back in the summer of 2009 (“Chia: An Inconvenient Pet”). I recently found out that Chase has been accepted as one of the participants […]

Tyler Merrick of Project 7 (Part 2)

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday I posted Part 1 of an interview with Tyler Merrick, the founder of Project 7, a for-profit company which donates half of what it makes to organizations working in seven distinct areas of need: Heal the Sick, Save the […]

Tyler Merrick of Project 7

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to introduce you to a unique and relatively new company called Project 7, which sells consumer products (bottled water, gum, mints) — available nationwide in places like Caribou Coffee — and donates 50% of its profits to non-profit […]

Why I Am Proud

posted by Jason Boyett

This has been a rough year for almost all nonprofit organizations. When people encounter financial difficulty, charitable giving is one of the first places they cut back. I haven’t seen any hard numbers, but I know, from anecdotal evidence, that […]

T-shirt Promotion: Be Like Me

posted by Jason Boyett

I’m not sure how to soften this with any measure of humility, so I’ll just be blunt. My friends at Preemptive Love Coalition (the folks behind Buy Shoes, Save Lives) are doing a special t-shirt promotion called “Be Like Jason.” […]

Together, Let’s Make Kevin Bald

posted by Jason Boyett

My friend Kevin Hendricks is a fellow freelance writer whom I’ve known for several years. We’ve written for some of the same magazines, commented on each other’s blogs, and followed each other on Twitter for a long time. He’s a […]

Find Your Way Home

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday’s post was not-so-serious, so I’ll balance things out (perhaps karmically?) by calling attention to a book and organization that impresses me. Thistle Farms is a non-profit business operated by the women who live at Magdalene, a two-year residential community […]

World Water Day

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday was World Water Day, which was was initiated by the United Nations in 2005 to draw focus to the global crisis for 1.1 billion people who lack safe drinking water. I want to do my part in observing World […]

For Love of God and Beer

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in 2006, I traveled to the Dominican Republic with Tom Larson, the founder and then-President of Healing Waters International. (I wrote a 5-day travelogue for Relevant, which you might be interested in reading: Day One. Two. Three. Four. Five.) […]

Weekend Recap: Coulombes, Swimming, Pocket Guide Site

posted by Jason Boyett

What did you do this weekend? I’ll tell you what I did: 1. I met the Coulombe family. Several months ago, faithful reader-of-this-blog Ken Grant emailed me to introduce me to a cool family he’d just spent time with in […]

Question for the Day: Talking vs. Doing

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been wondering this for a few days, so I’m going to drop it on the table. Watch out for the splatter. Please read and discuss. Question for the Day: What’s the relationship between talking about doing something and, you […]

Click for Charity Roundup

posted by Jason Boyett

Save the world, one click at a time: I just finished up writing a short magazine article about click-for-charity sites. Many of you are probably aware of these online destinations, but I thought I’d do my good deed for the […]

Buy Shoes: Soles4Souls

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve advocated before, here and here, the wonderful lifesaving work that Buy Shoes, Save Lives has been doing in Iraq. When you buy shoes from them, your money is then used to fund heart surgeries for Iraqi kids whose parents […]

Healing Waters in the Denver Post

posted by Jason Boyett

The Denver Post published a front-page feature a couple of days ago about my friends Tom & Dana Larson and their organization, Healing Waters International. HWI is one of my favorite humanitarian organizations and has one of the most creative […]

Buying More Shoes, Saving More Lives

posted by Jason Boyett

Some of you may be aware of Buy Shoes, Save Lives, an organization I profiled about a year ago for Relevant Magazine. BSSL is now called the Preemptive Love Coalition. If you are unfamiliar with their work, they operate out […]

The Junky Car Club on Dave Ramsey

posted by Jason Boyett

Some of you may know that I’m a member of and occasional blogger for the Junky Car Club, which is a politely rebellious organization against consumerism and the American habit of assigning (or seeking) status based on what kind of […]

Buy Shoes, Save Lives

posted by Jason Boyett

Relevant is now posting the full text of an interview I did with Buy Shoes, Save Lives founder Jeremy Courtney. Jeremy’s organization is a cool one on several different levels, bringing the realms of fashion, social justice, interfaith cooperation, combating […]

The Junky Car Club

posted by Jason Boyett

I mentioned it briefly in a post last week, but I’m a big fan of The Junky Car Club. The JCC is a laid-back coalition of happy drivers who intentionally tool around in less-than-new vehicles. Why? Three big reasons: 1) […]

Gratitude and Deadly Vipers

posted by Jason Boyett

Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to do some freelance work for Mike Foster and his innovative culture-challenging, good-doing, non-profit organization, Ethur. One of Ethur’s projects is the Junky Car Club, which is just plain awesome (and […]

Healing Waters International

posted by Jason Boyett

I want to briefly use this (small, hardly noticeable) platform to call attention to one of my favorite social justice organizations. Healing Waters International is a Colorado-based nonprofit that provides clean water to the urban poor of Guatemala, Mexico, and […]
