'Fertile Ground' Launches New Outreach For 2011

UPPER MARLBORO, MD -- Fertile Ground is a non-profit organization founded by Darnell Self and Michael Humes that was established to allow others to experience the power of giving through their time, talents and resources. Fertile Ground has been able to help restore life to villages in Haiti by providing food, clothes and other needed resources immediately after the disaster. The organization recently donated over 300 backpacks to Central Union Mission as part of their back to school program. They also partnered with Orphan's Hope Project to help build a girls orphanage in Guatemala. Most recently, they partnered with Building Hope, Inc. to provide toys, clothes and food to make Christmas possible for families in need.

Fertile Ground kicks off the year with an incredible new website with 3D graphics. The new website has been designed to reflect the mission, purpose and excitement of all the phenomenal initiatives designed for 2011.

In addition to a new website; the entire Fertile Ground team is excited about the development of several new outreach initiatives:

* Monthly Food Drive - Giving should not just be a holiday event. Fertile Ground will be doing a monthly food drive to supply families in need with the necessity of life; food and love.

* Tent City Relief - Imagine a place where people live with little hope for the future. Imagine a place where tents replace houses, suitcases replace dressers and sterno cans replace stoves. Fertile Ground has partnered with the Nehemiah Group in Camden, New Jersey to help provide relief for families currently and previously living in Tent City.

* Warm Heads, Hands & Feet - Having to stand at the bus stop, on the playground or watch your friends put on gloves and hats as your cold hands brush together to remain warm is the reality of many children. This initiative was created to ensure children stay warm during the elements of cold weather.

* Christmas Drive - Fertile Ground will again be partnering with Building Hope, Inc. to make Christmas a reality for families in need.


The additional outreach initiatives were developed to ensure that people are given an opportunity to give of their gifts, resources and talents year round. During a recent interview, Darnell Self was quoted saying: "Fertile Ground was established to allow the art and blessing of giving to flourish; for true abundance comes from giving back."

Together with the support of the kind hearts of others, Fertile Ground has been able to provide a helping hand to families in need. The entire team at Fertile Ground believes that together we can all impact the world.
