I support creative business owners in accomplishing their design dreams.
Today is Giving Tuesday, a day focused on supporting organizations that are working to make our communities better. I’ve had the honor of working with several nonprofits who are doing amazing things, and I want to highlight them! All of these organizations happen to serve kids and families. It’s wonderful what they are doing to reach the next generation of leaders!
Miss Erica’s Reading Club is a nonprofit organization that encourages kids to develop a love for reading. Erica is actually one of my dearest friends. Her joy is contagious and she has such a heart for serving kids! She shares books and activities for a variety of ages, with a special emphasis on featuring stories about children of Color. You can checkout the storytime videos on her YouTube channel with your family, and donate via her website. She’s such a fun follow on Instagram as well!
When I worked with Salood earlier this year, I was completely blown away by what they do to support the pediatric cancer community. Through their Ambassador Program, Salood pairs a pediatric cancer warrior with a business owner to create a customized product. The product is then brought to market. A portion of the proceeds support Salood’s Financial Relief Program for families who need help covering treatment costs. You can submit a donation to the organization directly, or by purchasing their latest product collab. Follow them on Instagram to find out when a new collab is happening!
Believe to Achieve was founded by Shirika, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, to tackle the lack of financial literacy education in Mississippi – especially for children of Color. The organization offers programs for middle school, high school, and college students to help them learn about topics like credit cards, saving and investing, and preparing for college. Shirika asks the question, “if we don’t teach our children about money, how do we expect them to manage money successfully as adults?” To help make Believe to Achieve’s programs possible, donate via their website.
I hope you’re feeling inspired to support at least one of these amazing causes. I’ll be donating to each of these organization, and I invite you to donate monetarily or find another way that you can get involved and support their missions. Simply sharing about them on social media helps spread the word!
I’m so thankful for the kindness of these leaders and the work they’re doing to make our world a better place. Happy Giving Tuesday, everyone!
