#GivingTuesday #RepairTheWorld #SocialJustice @Maveron


This year has been a year of great triumph, great loss, and great reckoning. How we live, work, eat, play, learn, and even mourn was quickly redefined and transformed by none other than nature itself. Non-normalcy is a trait we often seek in our founders, and yet, we are all enduring a non-normal life experience that has impacted each of our lives in both similar and different ways. So, what did we learn? 2020 has forced each of us to think critically about what matters most in our lives. This year has also gifted us with an enhanced ability to empathize and listen to the experience of those who may not share our same background, race, ethnicity, and or privileges.

As the Maveron team reflected on these lessons, we also shared a great sense of hope for what the future could be. We believe that the collective awakening of the American consciousness has the power to accelerate social justice and to help repair the world. On this giving Tuesday, the Maveron team has selected to donate $8000 each to four key organizations fighting for social justice in unique and equally important ways. These organizations are focused on criminal justice reform, youth education and shelter, and food insecurity. Learn more about the selected organizations below and we hope you will join us in giving!

The Equal Justice Initiative works to this end by fighting for the abolishment of mass incarceration and excessive punishment and challenging racial inequity for the most vulnerable people in America.

World Central Kitchen works across America to safely distribute fresh meals to communities in need. World Central Kitchen has provided more than 30 million meals across 400 cities. 

The Hidden Genius Project trains, educates, and mentors Black male youth in entrepreneurship and leadership skills to help change their lives and the lives of those in their communities.

YouthCare seeks to end youth homelessness and is committed to ensuring that young people are valued and have the ability to achieve their potential.
