Beautiful Together works to improve the quality of life of children waiting for families.

What We Do: We work to identify and complete specific and measurable projects that tangibly improve the lives of orphaned children in the United States and Africa. We also shine a light on children living in extreme poverty, foster care, or orphanages through a combination of on-the-ground work, professional photography, video profiles, and social outreach.

Why We Do It:  We believe that as overwhelming and intimidating as it can seem to try to change the world, we can do one small, real thing to help those who need help the most. And then another.
