GIVING BACK 🤍
"We can all do small things with great love and, together, we can all do something wonderful."
- Mother Theresa
To me, it is all about balance, love, and giving back by supporting Organizations that have epic missions I dearly align and connect with.
Sharing about the three non-profit organizations I am honored to support and their work with you:
IF NOT US THEN WHO
If Not Us Then Who is a US registered charity, 501(c)(3) that supports a global awareness campaign highlighting the role indigenous and local peoples play in protecting our planet.
We work in partnership with communities to make films, take photographs, curate content, commission local artists, and host events. Our work aims to build lasting networks, target unjust policies, and advocate for greater rights for indigenous and local peoples to bring about positive social change.
Developed since 2013 with a reach of over 25 million, over 28 participatory award-winning short films, 16 pop up events in 9 countries and the 2020 ‘Vital Voices’ SIMA social impact winners.
SHE IS POWERFUL
She-Is is a Los Angeles based non-profit organization dedicated to providing a supportive environment for young girl survivors of sexual abuse and sex trafficking. We inspire young girls between the ages of 11-18 to re-gain control of their bodies, to overcome feelings of shame, anger, mistrust, and betrayal, while reinforcing a new sense of pride in themselves. We do this through the healing power of dance.
Solidarity, Assistance, and Unity Create Expectations (SAUCE) is an NGO created in 2001 by a group of friends and family members of Monsignor Enrique («Kike») Figaredo to channel our desire to encourage, support, and assist in his responsibility in Battambang in favor of the ones in need.
Our focus is the poor, those who suffer, and everyone who is vulnerable to society. That is why our projects are dedicated to supporting the most unfortunate: people with disabilities, the poor, children, and the excluded. Guaranteeing them a minimally dignified life, promoting their education and training, assuring them access to proper health care, and promoting their initiative and independence are the priorities of our action.
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
