The Story of Stuff Project
About the ProjectWhen Annie Leonard and her friends at Free Range Studios set out in 2007 to share what she’d learned about the way we make, use and throw away Stuff, they thought 50,000 views would be a good result for her ‘20-minute cartoon about trash.’ Today, with over 15 million views and counting, The Story of Stuff is one of the most watched environmental-themed online movies of all time.

Annie founded the non-profit Story of Stuff Project in 2008 to respond to tens of thousands of viewer requests for more information and ways to get involved. We create short, easily shareable online movies that explore some of the key features of our relationship with Stuff—including how we can make things better; we provide high quality educational resources and programs to everyone from teachers and people of faith to business and community leaders; and we support the learning and action of the over 350,000 members of the Story of Stuff community.

The Story of Stuff Project is proud to be fiscally sponsored by San Francisco’s Tides Center. We are supported by grants from private and public foundations, revenue from speaking appearances and DVD and book sales, and contributions from people like you.

Please help us keep our films and other content free by making a secure, tax-deductible on-line contribution today.

Project Australia

Project Australia » Start, scale and sustain community projects
http://projectaustralia.org.au/

Harnessed fully, there are more talents and resources within any small group of passionate citizens than are actually needed to manifest deep social change.

Project Australia is a not-for-profit organisation helping people start, scale and sustain community projects across 12 theme areas. We provide inspiration, resources, processes and advice to help people put their ideas into action.

We are a progressive social enterprise, free from political or religious influence, founded in 2006 by a young social innovator, Donnie Maclurcan. Any profits we make go back into the services we deliver. We have grown thanks to unconditional donations, fundraising events, merchandise sales, revenue from our youth speakers’ bureau and the hard work of more than 200 volunteers since we began. Our budget for 2012-13 is $30,000.

Our team currently includes a one-day per week Executive Director, ten volunteers and five committee members. We operate out of Sydney, but our team and work is national.
