Local Business Supports Poverty Resolutions in Several Ways

When it comes to non-profit organizations, supports and sponsors are a major part of what makes the work happen. Poverty Resolutions, a local non-profit based out of the Doylestown, PA area, would like to give a big thank you to George’s Tool Rental for their continual support and donations.

The goal of Poverty Resolutions is to eliminate poverty around the world. The co-founders of Poverty Resolutions are Matthew and Andrew Jones. These two, along with a few friends, had spent twenty-days days, back in 2010, living in Haiti. They lived in a tent city in Port-Au-Prince, trying to get a deeper understanding of what living in poverty was truly like. They were blown away by what they saw, what they experienced, and the emotions they felt. Since then, their goal has been to change Haiti and to eventually change the world. The main way they do this is through raising awareness and raising support.

With help from businesses such as George's Tool Rental, Poverty Resolutions is able to help the country of Haiti in incredible ways.

George’s Tool Rental had heard of Poverty Resolutions and wanted to get involved. They wanted to make a difference, and to help in any way they could. First, they decided to become monthly donors, knowing that the money given would go towards the projects Poverty Resolutions would establish in Haiti. Once they saw the great outcome of their decision and also saw the result of their money through a school, dormitories, and other projects being built, they made another decision. The owners of George’s Tool Rental sent their daughter down to Haiti on a trip to physically build the projects their money was contributing towards.

Not only does George’s Tool Rental get involved with Poverty Resolutions in Haiti, but they also get involved locally in Doylestown, PA. Their services provide sales of all types of equipment both new and used They also offer tool rentals to those who may need anything from scaffolding ladders and power washers, to backhoes and aerial lifts. This is only a very small glimpse of all they have to offer.

Video Editor for Upcoming Theater Release Partners With Poverty Resolutions

Local non-profit organization Poverty Resolutions, based out of Doylestown, PA, has been working with a video producer and editor from California for quite some time now. J.B. Waggoner is a producer-editor that works primarily with organizations and artists. He produces mainly web-based promotions from concept, to shooting, to editing, and then to final delivery.

He flies in from California throughout the year to run through ideas, concepts, and then films it to make the vision a reality.

This is incredible for a non-profit organization.

Recently, Poverty Resolutions released a video done by JB Waggoner featuring co-founder Andrew Jones

Andrew Jones, co-founder of Poverty Resolutions, says, “J.B. has been a great asset to our non-profit organization the entire time we have been working with him. He is one of the best video editors that I have seen and does an incredible job on putting the entire vision for a video together. He has such talent for brainstorming ideas, creating storyboards for the ideas, and then putting it to video through filming and editing. We are always happy with the turnout and clearly the videos are gaining attention on YouTube as well.”

Not only does J.B. work with Poverty Resolutions, but he also has partnered and done work for a NorCal Network titled “Why Plant Churches?” which was showcased at a 850+ member conference hosted by Acts 29 and The Gospel Coalition. Missionary Athletes International has also contracted J.B. over the past three years to create branded videos.

Penn State University raises $25,000 for Poverty Resolutions every year

Penn State University is a well-known college in the United States, and especially in Pennsylvania. Each year for the past several years, one of the courses at Penn State has decided to partner with Poverty Resolutions to help raise money for their cause. The initiative that these university students take raises over $25,000 every year for Poverty Resolutions.

What is Poverty Resolutions and what do they do? Poverty Resolutions is a non-profit organization that based out of Doylestown, PA and the heart of their organization is to eliminate poverty around the world. They had spent twenty-days days, back in 2010, living in a tent city in Haiti, trying to get a deeper understanding of what living in poverty was like. They were blown away by what they saw, what they experienced, and the emotions they felt. Since then, their goal has been to change Haiti and to eventually change the world. The main way they do this is through raising awareness and raising support; Penn State University is helping Poverty Resolutions do both of these things.

One of Penn State’s business courses (BA 411) educates over 4,000 students a year. These 4,000 students come together and partner with Poverty Resolutions to help make an impact and a difference in Haiti. Nancy McClure is the professor of this senior business class at Penn State and encourages her students to do something significant in their last year of college. Often, senior university students are focused on enjoying their last year, the details of graduating, and what job they want to have once they finish. The students in this Penn State course have decided to put their own needs and desires aside in order to make the most out of their senior year of college. They spend their time putting together fundraisers so when they leave Penn State, they can say that they helped build a variety of projects in Haiti, sent Haitian children to school, or helped people in Haiti without homes have one to live in. How many college kids can say that they joined together with their classmates to raise thousands of dollars for children and adults in Haiti.

Local Elementary School Raises over $5,000 for a non-profit organization

The power of children when given the chance to do something is remarkable. Imagine hundreds of young children coming together to raise money for a great cause. In the Central Bucks school district located outside of Philadelphia, PA, one elementary school decided to partner with a local non-profit organization to raise money for Haiti. Gayman Elementary School was one of a few schools within the Central Bucks district to receive a presentation from Poverty Resolutions about poverty in Haiti. Poverty Resolutions is a non-profit organization that based out of Doylestown, PA and the heart of their organization is to eliminate poverty around the world. They had spent twenty-days days, back in 2010, living in a tent city in Haiti, trying to get a deeper understanding of what living in poverty was like. They were blown away by what they saw, what they experienced, and the emotions they felt. Since then, their goal has been to change Haiti and to eventually change the world. The main way they do this is through raising awareness and raising support.

Gayman Elementary raises money to build a school and to send children to school in Haiti.

Poverty Resolutions gives school presentations throughout the year to teach young students about dollar-a-day poverty and what they can do in their generation to help stop poverty. After hearing the presentation from Matthew and Andrew Jones, the co-founders of Poverty Resolutions, Gayman Elementary School decided they were not just going to sit back and watch poverty happen. Over the past two years, this elementary school has come alongside Poverty Resolutions with some spectacular results. Gayman Elementary has raised over $5,400.00 through different fundraising activities and money donated. The project that was completed in Haiti due to the money raised by Gayman Elementary School is the completed construction of a school, as well as sending thirty Haitian children to this school for an education.

Co-founder Andrew Jones states how he felt he had grown up in a bubble and was not aware of tragedy and suffering around the world when he was younger. “One point of our presentations to these elementary schools is to help awareness about dollar-a-day poverty start at a young age”, he says. “We want students to get involved, to do something that matters, and to have the knowledge of what goes on outside of the United States”.

Thanks to Gayman Elementary School and the money they raised for Haiti, these young American children are helping young Haitian children. To see more about what Gayman Elementary School did for Haiti and to see pictures of the completed project, visit Poverty Resolutions’ website and Youtube page.

Why Black Dog Design Is the Perfect Fit for Poverty Resolutions

What do you get when you put a graphic design company together with a local non-profit? You get effective, well-designed, and creative campaigns and fundraisers. Kelly Cavallo, from Black Dog Design, has done just that for non-profit organization Poverty Resolutions. Both businesses, located near Doylestown, Pennsylvania, have joined together in recent campaigns and plan to continue working together in upcoming events and campaigns that Poverty Resolutions has in store.

In the past, Kelly and her company have helped design the images, logos, and materials for several campaigns such as: Live/Give campaign, Race Against Poverty 5k, and others. Not only has Black Dog Design helped with fundraising campaigns that Poverty Resolutions has held, but they have designed the pamphlets, handouts, flyers, and materials for the educational presentations that the organization puts on at local elementary schools.

Co-founder Andrew Jones says, “Kelly is not only is creative, but she thinks outside the box. She thinks of ideas and designs that never would have crossed our minds before. It’s exciting and encouraging to work with someone who does their job so well, and will do more than the job requires for our non-profit organization.”

Jones also mentions how it was Kelly’s idea to put facts and statistics on their Facebook page. “This is something that you see Invisible Children and Charity Water doing now. It wasn’t always first thought to put the information out there, but with Kelly’s suggestion we see that making people aware of the facts is an important part in raising awareness about poverty and living on one dollar a day.”

Poverty Resolutions wants to send a thank you to Black Dog Design and Kelly Cavallo for all their continued help and creativity. They are looking forward to working more with the company in the future and are excited for the upcoming campaigns that will be released in the next few months.
