The idea of leaving the woodpile higher than you found it is a mantra I picked up working at my current company, Red Ventures. Essentially it means that when joining something you find ways to have an impact. I recently heard Mick Ebeling, founder of Not Impossible labs, say that if we can impact ONE person’s life in this world we have already left it better than we found it. With that in mind, I want to have this post be a dynamic collection of organizations, or any other sort of media that is making an impact on people. Regardless if it is at a small or large scale.

I will update this post with shout-outs to organizations, podcasts, YouTube videos, personal sites, Netflix shows, and any other form of media that I come across that I think are leaving Earth’s woodpile higher than they found it. If you come across something that you believe deserves a shout-out then you can shoot me a message and I’ll check it out. Bullet points below will link you to the respective site or media.
