140 Difference – Week 4 Grant Recipients

June 4, 2016
By: So Delicious

If pressed to choose one adjective to describe our fans, we’d have to go with “awesome.”

Why, you ask? Among other factors (including their impeccable taste in dairy-free frozen desserts), our fans tweeted us almost 1,800 world-changing ideas in the first four weeks of our 140 Difference #WorldsShortestGrant contest. Like we said: awesome.

As in previous weeks, the high volume of inspirational project proposals has made it challenging to pick just a few winners. After much deliberation, we were thrilled to award $23,900 to 18 amazing individuals, nonprofits and small businesses.

This week’s projects include delivering fresh produce to the homeless and hungry in Washington, D.C., cleaning up the Oregon Coast, and providing dog beds to help homeless pups sleep soundly in Seattle.

You can learn about ALL of our week 4 winners below. Check out our blog for information on our week 1, week 2, and week 3 winners, and check in next week to learn about our week 5 winners. We still have $18,920 available, so if you submitted your tweet-length, world-changing idea before May 31 it’s not too late to win!
