SaveEarthToday was founded in 2009 after a fundraiser 7 mile ocean swim from Fort Foster, ME, to the "Isles of Shoals" dedicated to cleaning up the ocean!
Compelled by the outpouring of love and support from people wishing to help with the swims cause, SaveEarthToday was founded to help people connect in easy ways to Save Earth Today!!
Here we share with you our history of making a difference, media archive, as well as give tribute to our valuable non-profit partners.
We started the Portsmouth High School Solar Panel project, in 2010, by suggesting the idea, connecting the right people, and then promoting the idea in the media with a swimming event! Since then the fire has started and the Eco club has taken over in a beautiful way... the project is self sustained and strong.
Impacts: We successfully sponsored two children for a year, one from Africa, a boy, and a girl from the Dominican republic named Charina. We sponsored them through the non-profits "Food for the Hungry" and "World Vision".
We have launched a successful positive sticker and flyer campaign in 2010 that is influencing people in Northern America in Schools, towns, and cities.
We use positive and creative messages, as well as inspirational quotes to change the world.
Currently re-developing our team and game plan!
Sponsoring Children in 3rd world countries
Director of Operations (DOO) - Position available
Our mission is inspiring people in positive ways, by making it simple and easy for other people to make positive changes in ways they feel passionate about we believe we can change the world for the better.
The three main categories we promote explained:
Love God focuses on sharing the gospel of the Bible as well as encouraging people to Love God because God is real! Through this category we focus on helping people in humanitarian ways such as sponsoring a child in a third world country through world vision, fighting against modern day slavery, and supporting efforts to feed people. We promote scriptures on our T-shirts stickers and flyers, and also team up with various church and nonprofit efforts.
GoGreen is focused on cleaning up the planet and making Earth into a healthier place. We also focus on green projects too, whether starting our own or supporting existing projects. Such as starting the Portsmouth High School solar panel project, or supporting campaigns to put more solar panels on the white house. Our T-shirt, stickers and flyers promote green facts, ideas, and clever sayings.
BeHealthy focuses on spreading overall health and well-being physically to an individual or a families life. Our primary outreach is simply everyday people, to help educate them on how to be healthy. Through this category we focus more directly on nutritional knowledge with our products.
Also SaveEarthToday is focused on building a good world community. By teaching people how to communicate with other people from around the world we hope to make the bond that bring us together stronger as mankind.
This nonprofit was created in response to everything going wrong in the world, and seeing so many people ready to fight for what's right, with hopes that together as team humanity we can bring positive change.
SaveEarthToday is run on a volunteer basis, and this is the lifeblood of how we work. Nobody in this organization gets paid anything. The rewards consist of knowledge how to live a longer and happier life, as well as beautiful friendships, the rewards of genuinely helping other people, and getting all of our products at production cost. We do celebrate together, and there can be awesome benefits of working with us, but we currently shy away from having a payroll or making our "non-profit" a place where people would want to be here to earn money. We donate a considerable amount of all the money obtained by us to various non-profit efforts, and the rest we use to grow and maintain our own needs as well as fund our campaigns!
SET Club is a commitment free easy and fun place for people to feel good about making a difference in the world. To do that is as easy as just promoting our website, or we give the option to submerse into positive initiatives that we lead. Really the people you see to the left here under the SET club columns contribute to a broad beautiful movement to Save Earth Today just by being themselves and representing SET as they exist; and it carries with each of us in some way shape or form for our whole lives.
We are registered in the state of NH as a legitimate non-profit, but have not yet achieved the tax deductible 501(C3) status. Save Earth Today!

SaveEarthToday club (SET CLUB) is what we call the group of people who become involved with our-non profit! We give these people opportunities to team up with our non-profit on a more personal level, from promotion and awareness, finding and sharing new media material, to volunteer days, to ideas about shaping the direction of our non-profit, and more. SET club members are vital and important. There are many benefits to joining our club from positive inspiration and healthy newsletters on how to live longer, random inspirational messages, making new friends, being invited to cool events and activities, production cost deals on all of our products, to having a positive reputation as someone who saves the world! Level three activists can even get their own business cards, and a free t-shirt and sticker of their choosing.
Two SaveEarthToday activists take off on an epic ocean swim to promote installing Solar Panels on the White House, in the wake of a few environmental disasters. Joined by numerous other efforts and with the help of the media to increase awareness and support, the leaders of the white house pledged to install solar panels later that year in October! :-D
