Bittersweet is a not-for-profit which tells stories of organizations doing inspiring and much needed work in response to the critical social issues of our day. To do this, we publish monthly stories ranging in topics from refugee care to financial literacy, food deserts to elder care, anti-trafficking to housing for the homeless and more. These stories are nominated by our readers and crafted by professional creatives who volunteer their time and talent. We rely on support from our readers to fund the effort and would greatly appreciate any contribution you are able to make.

My only words are 'WOW'!!!! I am not usually speechless...but I am certainly at a loss for words to describe my feelings of elation and my emotions reading, listening and watching the beautiful Bittersweet Monthly piece. Your passion for the project is very clear in the final product. Thank you again.

I wanted to thank you and your stellar team at Bittersweet for the article on City Year DC's work on addressing the drop out crisis in our community. I was so impressed not only with the beautiful layout but also the detailed attention to data, testimonials and accurate description of the work our City Year AmeriCorps members provide for our DC kids. I have seen a number of articles on our organization's work and Bittersweet's piece was the best I have seen in my 8 years as Executive Director. Thank you!

We've had some journalists ask to do a story on Casa in the past, and Bittersweet is the first publication to nail it. It was so evident that you 'get it.' There were sections of the story when I thought, 'Wow...they are telling this story better than I could.' We are so grateful for your phenomenal work and for the outstanding, professionalism of the Bittersweet team to help us tell our story well.

I think the whole feature is amazing. It’s heavy and gritty, and captures the weight of the issue, while still pointing towards the hope, with professionalism and composure. It will be a powerful tool for us to advance the mission.
