PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The island of Hispaniola is susceptible to many
reoccurring issues such as natural disasters, an
underdeveloped economy and lack of good education
that inevitably contributes to homelessness. In an
effort to facilitate the transition of families out of
homelessness in order to give the families an
opportunity to be successful.
No longer building homes out of locally sourced wood,
there’s been a choice to use 18-ounce plastic bottles to
have a larger overall impact. The communities source
the bottles from local river beds, beach cleanups, landfills, and buried trash sites. The bottle house
project alleviates economic, personal, health, and environmental security for the family. On average, a
1
bottle house uses 9,000 plastic bottles.. Join us on the next trip to make an impact to our communities.

VotePlz is a nonprofit, nonpartisan registration initiative meant to engage millennial voters through software and new online-first channels. We have a website and iPhone app meant to make voter registration easier than calling an Uber. We offer tools for users to check their registration, register to vote, and request absentee ballots, as well as a voting guide. We realize that in 2016, many students don't have stamps or envelopes, so once you or your friends fill out the form and register, VotePlz offers free postage-paid PDFs you can print out to mail in registration in states that require it. And you might just end up with a year of your college free or your college debt paid off. For more information visit https://www.voteplz.org or email [email protected].
