Success with our COVID-19 response!

Thanks to our generous supporters and donors we raised $1,127.50 for Feeding America‘s COVID-19 Response Fund in just four days! The Schnick Family Foundation has matched this with a $1,000 grant, for a total of $2,127.50 going to Feeding America.

This money will provide much-needed food and necessities such as cleaning supplies, personal care products, and diapers for those in need across the country.

We did it! Thank you!

Bheem The Puppy lost his front paws in a train accident. We were able to raise $5,600 to fund two critical surgeries for him. Despite his disability, he's a sweet + happy puppy, and together, we helped get him back on his "feet!" Thank you!

Support tutoring in a low-income elementary school!

We're partnered with AARP Foundation's Experience Corps program, pairing senior citizens and students with reading deficiencies. We're raising funds to sponsor Charles Darwin Elementary on the west side of Chicago.
