AVEENO® has just announced the THIRD winner of their Be An Active Natural™ Fund!
Rachelle Roper of Belleview, FL. and her organization, Feed The Need Garden, will receive the $10,000 grant as a reward for the wonderful work she does! AVEENO®, best known for its ACTIVE NATURALS® ingredients, launched the BE AN ACTIVE NATURAL™ Fund to award individuals and organizations that are creating positive change in their communities.
Eight $10,000 grants will be awarded throughout the year to consumers whose work impacts the lives of others through one of these three categories:
- Inspiring others to see their natural and inner beauty
- Educating about the values of an active and healthy lifestyle
- Preserving, restoring and improving the local environment
Rachelle is truly an Active Natural. After learning all there is to know about gardening and producing her own source of food while growing up, Rachelle saw the need to share her insight and knowledge she acquired to others in her community during the economic downturn. From there, Feed the Need Garden was born (feedtheneedgarden.com).
Rachelle organizes local seminars where she educates those willing to learn her craft. In addition, Rachelle has donated a plot of her very own land to create what she calls ‘the teaching garden’ where she invites locals to learn best practices first hand.
This grant will allow the Feed the Need Garden to continue to expand allowing Rachelle to educate more individuals allowing her to continue her nonprofit’s mission.
I am thrilled for Rachelle, but it does not end there! AVEENO® will be rewarding one philanthropic organization every month until December! The next two Be An Active Natural™ Fund semi-finalists will be up on August 13.
