Help Outside Fix the World

Send us your nominees for a special roundup of people and organizations that are making a difference and you could make our December issue.


Ever wonder where your money really goes when you give to a beloved charity? In the wake of the Greg Mortenson controversy, would-be philanthropists everywhere are wrestling with this issue. That’s why Outside is stepping up to provide our first comprehensive Guide to Giving. At a time when we’ve got more than a tough few problems to contend with here on Earth, our December 2011 issue will shine a light on innovative thinkers and doers in the fields that most captivate Outside readers—everything from global environmentalism to ocean restoration to energy solutions to urban design to projects in far-off lands.

Tell us about innovative people and organizations whose good works have impressed you and you could make our December issue. Email us at
