Starting your own charitable cause is going to be a lot of hard work, no doubt about it. But, like they say, "Nothing worth doing is ever easy...and you’re going to want folks to be able to make tax deductible donations to you..." We’re not positive they say that last part, just FYI.

At Allegory, we are striving to let the world know about the great things folks are doing here at home and abroad. One of our latest projects is a media venture centering around the amazing strides some of our newest citizens are making to become thriving members of their community. The Global Village Project is a non-profit school designed specifically for refugee girls. This three year program takes girls from all over the world whose education has been interrupted and prepares them to enter their local American high school.
One in nine people worldwide lives without access to clean drinking water, but the WaterSeer seeks to solve that problem by creating water - out of thin air.

After a fan pushes air below ground, a metal chamber cools it and then water particles collect in a reservoir.
Watching the news can make anyone feel helpless these days. Fear is a powerfully disabling force. But thanks to The Preemptive Love Coalition, the non-profit on the ground in war torn parts of the world, fear has met its match on the streets.
One of our first projects is a podcast. You guys like podcasts right? You’re hip, you’re now, you’re happenin’? Well...anyway...it's called “The Human Kind Podcast.” It’s a 12-part series that features conversations between two guests of varying racial backgrounds sitting down to talk about one thing and one thing only: race.
