You don’t have much, but you’re endlessly grateful for what you do have. The sun comes up and you stir awake and you’re faced with the most difficult choice you’ve ever made, and you have to make it every single day.

The above story is one that plays out on repeat for many of the families in Rocky Point, Mexico. For some, making hard decisions like whether or not to send their kids to school or feed them isn’t an experiment—it’s their everyday life…
GO ON A GIVE bACK TRIP WITH US
In January, we’ve partnered with an incredible nonprofit we absolutely adore. Steps Of Love works to empower children in Rocky Point, Mexico. Through educational programs and support, they are able to walk alongside these humans to do whatever it takes to help them succeed in life, in school, and in their community.
In partnership with Steps Of Love, Only Human is hosting our first ever Whatever It Takes Give Back Trip, and you’re invited! 30 humans who come with us on our give back trip in February will work on projects directly benefitting the families Steps Of Love serves. PLUS, Only Human has donated $10k in in-kind digital marketing services to help Steps of Love launch a new brand and website coming soon to support the work they’re doing to make the world a better place.
