Though it pales in comparison
To the overarching shadows,
A speck of light can reignite the sun
And swallow darkness whole
"Emphasis" Sleeping At Last
Part of the way I like to give back is by using my event talents. A couple years ago some friends and I started a nonprofit called A MOVE FOR LIFE. The big idea was that we would get our friends and family to 'donate' their birthdays and we would throw then parties that benefited local start up nonprofits who were doing meaningful work in the community. The goal was to raise money and awareness for new non-profits. Our mission was to make generosity and philanthropy less stuffy, more cool for GenXers and millennials.
Since then, we have been fortunate to have a vision that resonated with many nonprofits directly. So, now our organization partners with non-profits to raise awareness if they are new and to draw in a younger gift base.
Contact me if you would like to partner with us.
P.S. We are working on something big and pretty awesome in DTLA this summer.
