(Growing) List of Charities We will Support:

Below, discover why some of our participants are choosing to support their charities.
“I’ll be donating to American Childhood Cancer Organization. I’m a survivor of stage 4 neuroblastoma, and September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. I love being able to give back to the childhood cancer community.”
“I am contributing to the National MS Society because I have watched my sister suffer and decline from this horrible autoimmune disease. I would love to see research stepped up on eradicating MS in my lifetime.” 
“I love that St. Jude Children’s Hospital helps families who are in crisis. Children have a very special place in my heart as a mom and a teacher. I want to continue to help families afford high-quality medical care for their sweet angels.”
“I’m supporting the Karam Foundation because they’re working to close the education gap among Syrian refugee teens. This organization has a community center, The Karam House, that provides education and mentorship for this at-risk community, including technology skills and leadership training. This is an awesome opportunity to support worldwide educational endeavors.”

“The charity I have chosen is NAMI – National Alliance on Mental Illness. This amazing foundation helps support those struggling with mental health issues, and has been particularly helpful to my own teenage daughter. My daughter, Madison, struggled with depression and severe anxiety. She struggled with thoughts of suicide, and the NAMI national helpline saved her life. They supported her through the crisis situations that I did not see. I knew she was struggling, but so often parents and teachers don’t know the depths of a child’s inner crisis. This helpline, the programs they support, and the funding they provide to schools and local facilities are so important. This is a worthwhile charity that deserves support – their work literally saves lives. “

“We are supporting Opportunity Village in Las Vegas. Opportunity Village believes that people with intellectual disabilities and their families should have choices in where and how they are served. So, Opportunity Village provides a variety of different programs which provide men and women with all levels of disabilities the chance to lead a life that had been previously unattainable. They train, place and supervise people with intellectual disabilities in all sorts of jobs at locations throughout Southern Nevada.”

“Mental illness affects us all, including many of the young children in our classrooms. The Brain and Behavior Research Foundation is committed to scientific research to alleviate suffering caused by mental illness. 100% of all donations goes directly to research.”

“On the Day of Giving, I’ll be supporting Habitat for Humanity. Why? I believe everyone deserves a chance at affordable housing.”

“The Hill Country Crisis Council is dedicated to stopping the cycle of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse through education, intervention and assistance. They have an emergency shelter, a children’s advocacy center, prevention program in area schools, counseling and advocacy services, hospital accompaniment as well as working with area law enforcement and district courts to provide justice to victims.”

“It’s appalling that nearly one billion people around the world have limited access to clean, drinkable water and that nearly 5,000 children die each day from preventable water and sanitation related illnesses. The book, The Water Princess, written by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, inspired us to support the work of the Ryan’s Well Foundation working in developing countries with local partners to provide access to clean water and sanitation and hygiene education. And we’re inviting you to be part of the change!”
