In June 2018, MissionBox held a grant opportunity where, in order to compete, nonprofits from all over the world submitted haikus that represented their organization's mission. MissionBox was thrilled to receive hundreds of powerful submissions, that can be seen here, and produced a subsequent grant opportunity the following month asking nonprofits to have supporters vote for their favorite haiku. The grant award consisted of a cash prize and a professionally produced song and music video made from the organization's haiku. We are very proud to support our July 2018 grant winner, Solid Ground, and to share their beautiful message.
