Because International

We will be working with Because International for a service project.  

Because International is a non-profit organization committed to practical compassion. We’d like to put children in the best possible position to succeed. We do this through new innovations, specifically by improving current tools and resources used in daily, regular life. Innovation can be as simple as an idea scratched on a napkin or as complex as computer designs and 3-D printing. Bottom line: Innovation can change lives.  That is what we try to do, change lives.

We try to make things better by making better things.
