Change The World with 140 Characters (Up to $30,000 in Grants!)


To help celebrate Earth Day everyday we’re welcoming the return of the World’s Shortest Grant Application, created by So Delicious Dairy Free. Between April 22nd (Earth Day!) and May 12th, So Delicious will award up to $30,000 in grants, in various amounts, for your ideas!

The World’s Shortest Grant Application was a huge success last year, but to make it even more fun and helpful this year, So Delicious has expanded the concept of how you can make a world of difference!

  • Make a #140Difference for a better world with the World's Shortest Grant Application via @SoDeliciousSustainability & Conservation: Let them know your best ideas for saving water, reducing emissions, recycling creatively, and more!
  • Animal Welfare: With just 140 characters, you could make a difference in the lives of our furry and feathered friends. Simply share what you can do.
  • Plant-Based Food: Whether it’s organic ingredients or more fruits & veggies for kids, food has a far reaching effect in well-being for people and the earth.
  • Food Allergies: Don’t let food allergies or celiac disease hold you back. Dream big and advocate for what you believe in!

To Enter the World’s Shortest Grant Application Contest

Simply share your 140 character idea for a project that will make the world a better place via Twitter, Instagram or the So Delicious Dairy Free Facebook Page  during the contest dates. Be sure to include #140Difference (required to have your entry seen)!

Note that you may submit unlimited entries, in any of the categories noted above, but each entry must be original and your own. Submission of the same entry multiple times will void all of the entries for that idea. For more details, see the Contest Page and the Official Rules.

What’s My Short Idea?

Yes, I’m entering the World’s Shortest Grant Application, too! Why not? Even if I don’t win, can you imagine the power of manifestation if we all share our ideas for ways to make a difference?

Go Dairy Free - The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance and Casein-Free LivingMy Free Diet & Health Journal has helped tens of thousands of people, but I know it can reach so many more if it were properly designed and was a fillable PDF. I would use a #140Difference grant to hire someone to modify it or purchase PDF creator so that I can help more people root out their health issues with food – whether from allergies, intolerance, or simply not feeling well.
