I always knew I would be involved with giving back to those less fortunate. Though I imagined doing this at a time where I was slightly further along in my career, I find myself motivated today.  During this less desirable period we are currently immersed in, I choose to see (at most times) a silver lining;  People joining together to volunteer, march, donate, love, dream and hope. Our nation is defined as a "melting pot", through the diversity which creates its backbone. Because of that I firmly believe WE STAND STRONGER TOGETHER.  Below are four organizations which hold a very special place in my heart. I pledge to give back 5% of each event I plan or design this year, with the exception of non profit events. :)  Each client is able to choose one that would mean the most to them. If you need more information on a personal level as to why I chose one or the other, feel free to ask! A little love and kindness goes a long way, so let's all try to be a little better.

Biologicaldiversity

Biologicaldiversity.org

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
