The Raindrop Initiative will only have as many causes as we can FULLY fund in “life costs”.
The four below are simply the ones that we intend to start with. As soon as the life costs of these initiatives are fully funded we will add others that we have already designated. We would rather have a profound effect on a few than small effect on many. I believe soon, with your support, we will be able to have a profound effect on many!
