Giving season: Heroes 2017


Together with my family, I am sending my warmest thoughts to many friends and colleagues worldwide, and feeling a lot of gratitude. I truly appreciate your help in sending daily clicks to https://GreaterGood.com, where our simple mouseclicks can benefit a number of vital causes each and every day.

I’m also especially thankful to the individuals behind my client companies Cutters Studios, Gentleman Scholar Studios and Luci Creative for their leadership and help in supporting the following heroic organizations.

  • The mission of The Assistance League of Los Angeles is to improve the lives of impoverished children in the Greater Los Angeles Area community through philanthropy, dedicated service, and compassionate programs. For nearly 100 years, it has provided local women with opportunities to forge new connections and take leadership while making meaningful contributions to thousands of lives.
  • The non-profit BeLoved Asheville was established in 2009 with the goal of ending homelessness, poverty, prejudice, and injustice. With the power of community at the heart of its mission, BeLoved embodies love in Asheville and beyond through its Homeless Voice empowerment project, Mutual Support Resource Center, Free Village Farmers Markets, Community Support, Rise Up Studio Art & Music Collective, Street Medic Team, Sanctuary, House Hunters, Grove St. Gardens, and Community-Driven Justice Campaigns. BeLoved promotes social and economic justice, and supports everyone’s rights to the fullness of life in partnership of numerous organizations.
  • Bootstrap Villages is filling a unique niche in Chicago by building a tiny house village and providing services for homeless individuals in Chicago. The non-profit is working in cooperation with local service providers to amplify their efforts to help the local population.
  • Since 1979, the NYC-based Center for Urban Community Services has focused on ending homelessness for as many people as possible… and providing opportunities for low income individuals and families – particularly those living with disabling conditions – to be productive members of the community.
  • Chicago Coalition for the Homeless works with families, youths and adults, advocating to better lives through access to shelter, housing, jobs and schools. Regular outreach at more than 30 shelter and street programs reaches more than 4,500 people a year, with downstate organizing in nine Illinois communities, including Aurora, Rockford and Waukegan.
  • For the past 19 years, Gobble Gobble Give has spent every Thanksgiving feeding the homeless directly. In major cities across America, this group assembles meals, clothing, and care kits for the homeless and its volunteers take these packages directly to the homeless and in-need.
  • The mission of the National Coalition for the Homeless is to end homelessness in the United States. Among many other noteworthy initiatives over the past several years, NCH launched the Bringing America Home Act, taking to Congress the belief that people need affordable housing, livable incomes, health care, protection of civil rights and access to education.
  • National Wildlife Federation (NWF) calls upon more than four million members, partners, and supporters to promote and achieve viable solutions to everyday Americans in communities from coast to coast. Its conservation efforts focus on confronting global warming, protecting and restoring wildlife habitat, and connecting with nature.
  • In New York City, the Partnership for the Homeless, which began in 1982 with a single emergency shelter for men in the basement of a Greenwich Village church, strives to provide decent and affordable housing, community-based social services, stabilizing aftercare, and effective job training that translates into self-sufficiency and independence.
  • World Hunger Year is a non-profit that fosters numerous programs and activities to effectively advance long-term solutions to hunger and poverty by supporting community-based organizations that empower individuals and build self-reliance.
