#GivingTuesday 2020

December 1st, 2020

Please consider supporting our Foundation this year with a donation to our pediatric wheelchair program. We have already provided 15 chairs for kids in need, totaling over $88,000 in equipment. Will you contribute to our next chair?

Our Mission

We’re a NYC-based volunteer network for young urban professionals passionate about giving back to our community. 

Testimonials
