Join Team Cleveland! this is my friend Scott. He is doing a 22.5 mile race on June 9th in order to support the Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation. Dean - a NJ surfing icon - and his foundation are doing amazing work and he has really inspired me in his battle with cancer. Check out the foundation website for details. We are trying to crowd source $1,000 on behalf of our team. Please join Team Cleveland and make a pledge - even of just a $1! The link to donate is in Scott's bio @scottcleveland757
We are in the final week of the Saving Pets Challenge and are just shy of $12,000! With a donor continuing to match up to $5,000, we are still striving to reach our goal of $20,000. This time last year during the Saving Pets Challenge, we introduced our resilient girl, Elfie. Elfie was found tied to a pole and picked up by NYC Animal Care & Control. Elfie has been fighting tirelessly ever since and has made quite the transformation. When she first came to Adopt-A-Dog, she was barely able to move due to her skin condition, so the Adopt-A-Dog staff would spend time sitting by her side, keeping her company. Now Elfie is a rambunctious girl, at a healthy weight, socializing well with dogs, and is continuing to receive medical treatment for her skin condition. The minute Elfie arrived at Adopt-A-Dog she was a total love bug. She didn't let her past affect her love for life and people. The $20,000 you help us raise will allow us to continue to care for dogs with medical and behavioral needs until they find their forever home. With your help, we know we can make it to $20,000! Please donate now!

On Sunday, at midnight, I started baking cookies for the #24hourgivenyc. Throughout the course of the day over 600 cookies were delivered to strangers and friends in New York City. Dozens of inspirational post cards were placed in bookstores and subways. A park was cleaned. Breakfast and dinner were served at two separate shelters. Four bags of clothing were donated. Candles were lit in church. Letters were written. Kindness was shared. Look at what The Smile Project was able to accomplish in 1 day. In 1 city. With less than $100. This summer, we are embarking on a Kindness tour across America. If we could do all of the above in 24 hours, imagine what we can accomplish in 54 days across 25 states with your support. I’ve never made a fundraising ask on behalf of The Smile Project, but June 23rd, the day the trip begins, will be the 2,419th day of Happiness and I’m passing the hat. One dollar for every day of intentional joy. If you have the means to support, please consider doing so. All money goes directly to the nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible (plus, I threw in some great incentive prizes). // link in bio \\ Full review of #24hourgivenyc coming soon. Stay tuned. #smileprojectroadtrip#spreadthesmile#24hourgiveback#crowdrise#kindnesstour#kindnessalways#randomactsofkindness#kindnessacrossamerica#bekind#thesmileproject#happinessis
Only ten days to go! Please help us reach our goal by getting the word out to the community! We’d like to thank all of our donors and supporters, you have helped promote high quality programs like @bayarea_creative #edfund#wccusd#bayareacreative#crowdrise
Spring campaign story of the week: Nikkya! “In 2007, my mother passed away at the age of 42 from heart disease. What I know now, is that heart disease is the leading cause of death among black women! As fate would have it, my grandfather unexpectedly passed away shortly after. He donated his heart to a heart patient in need and gave the gift of life. Today, I take my health more seriously (and that of my family's). In a blink of an eye, life could change tomorrow for any of us. Today, I invite you to join us in reaching our $2,000 goal and give to this very campaign!” #haboringhearts#springcampaign#fundraiser#health#hearthealthy#family#love#crowdrise#spring

This year our organization, SEED Project, is celebrating 20th Anniversary! And to help continue the celebration of twenty years of inspiring and empowering young people through education and basketball, we have launched the #give20campaign. The Give 20 Campaign is a fundraising effort to raise the funds necessary to support the delivery and expansion of SEED Project and its programs. The goal of the campaign is to ensure the sustainability and growth of all SEED programs as we look forward to providing opportunity and empowering youth across the African continent through education and basketball for the next twenty years. This past week, we were able to raise over $50,000 off-line thanks to several generous donations from alumni and extended members of the SEED family. Link to the CrowdRise campaign - https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/seed-project-give-20 ( and on the bio page too). Please share widely!
