About this time two years ago, something lit a fire in me. I’d been involved in Never Settle for about a year already, donating here and there and occasionally talking to Jeremy about upcoming projects. When I heard there was a non-profit benefit for one of Never Settle’s partners in my area, I was intrigued. I signed up.

Although I didn’t know a single person in the room, I was welcomed like an old friend, quickly getting ushered from person to […]

One of the most effective ways to create sustainable real world change is by investing in leaders. Why? Because leadership matters, especially in the poorest of areas where there is a lack of clean water, education, mentoring, and other opportunities you and I have access to every day. This is especially true in Haiti where more than half of the population lives on less than $1 per day. Many poor Haitian communities depend on leadership from the church to provide daily needs. The community expectation of church pastors is much higher than in the United States. Haitian Pastors are more […]

About 40 million people are in the path of the storm’s winds. Though the storm will weaken as it moves over land, it is expected to remain a typhoon before it moves […]
