“Making the world 10% happier”
NOMINATED BY DAVID WELCH

*** begin quote ***

Taylor Morris came back from war severely injured. After recovery, theCHIVE community helped raise enough money to help him build his dream cabin in the woods. 

While the internet can be an echo chamber of negativity, cyber-bullying and mean-spirited trolls, there is one online refuge where sincerity and good-natured humor shine through. theCHIVE.com started as a photoblog in 2008 and in less than a decade has gone from a simple website to a global movement of goodwill.

Founded by two brothers from Indiana, John and Leo Resig, theCHIVE was created to make folks laugh without snark or ridicule. Photo galleries comprised of hilarious cats and adorable kids, feel-good features meant to inspire, heartwarming stories of people helping others and personal tales of triumph over adversary, theCHIVE’s content brings the best of humanity to the forefront, all to make the world 10% happier.

*** end quote ***

Tell me again that how without the Gooferment there’s be no charity!
