140 Difference – Week 5 Grant Recipients

June 8, 2016
By: So Delicious

Thank you to everyone who participated in our third annual 140 Difference World’s Shortest Grant Contest. We received a total of 2,665 tweet-length grant applications or about three times as many as last year!

We couldn’t be more impressed by the initiatives that fans like you are making in the areas of environmental sustainability, plant-based foods, food allergies, and animal welfare. With so many worthy entries, it was hard to pick just a few winners!

Over five weeks, we awarded $100,000 in micro-grants ranging in value from $140-10,000 to 98 individuals, nonprofits, and small businesses.  Our winners will go on to start community gardens, make vegan burritos for those in need, rescue animals of all kinds, and so much more!

Once again, congratulations to all of this year’s winners! You can learn more about our week 1, week 2, week 3, and week 4 winners on our blog.
