a career of giving

For PlanetGive Founder Alli Allen, “giving back” has been an essential part of everyday life for many years. In 2004, she co-founded Second Helpings Atlanta, a successful nonprofit food rescue and redistribution organization that has distributed over 6 million pounds of fresh food to people who are food insecure in metro Atlanta. Throughout her work, she often wondered how charitable giving could be more engaging. What if the social connections that are so important to people were merged with the charitable causes that are so meaningful?

Alli developed PlanetGive to enhance the charitable giving experience, making it a more collaborative, social and effective way to collectively fund the nonprofit organizations that positively impact our planet.
