GRID Alternatives is a non-profit organization that builds solar panels systems for people located in both the United States and Nicaragua. This amazing organization not only helps relieve us of our dependance on fossil fuels, but they do it while simultaneously aiding those who are less fortunate. As if their mission was not righteous enough, they have agreed to help us distribute 300 toothbrushes to a hospital in Nicaragua when they head there this November to install solar panels for a local hospital.
