February Charitable Donation: Facing History and Ourselves
In July I made a pledge to donate 10% of my monthly sales to an organization that is working towards helping vulnerable or under represented people; or otherwise trying to change our world for the better of all. It's one small commitment I can make every month.
The organization that will receive 10% of my sales throughout the month of February is: Facing History and Ourselves.
" Facing History fosters empathy and reflection, improves students’ academic performance, reinvigorates teachers, and builds safe and inclusive schools. By integrating the study of history, literature, and human behavior with ethical decision making and innovative teaching strategies, our program enables secondary school teachers to promote students’ historical understanding, critical thinking, and social-emotional learning. As students explore the complexities of history, and make connections to current events, they reflect on the choices they confront today and consider how they can make a difference.
For every sale I receive through the month of February I will donate 10% to Facing History and Ourselves. Sales are totaled at the end of each month, rounding up to the nearest $5 to make the donation within the first 1-3 days of the following month.
For the month of January I chose the Old Pueblo Community Services.
"When people face homelessness, Old Pueblo Community Services offer housing, counseling and support services to help them transform their lives.
Vision Statement: We Envision a future in which all have the opportunity to reside in a safe affordable house and live meaningful, self-defined, dignified lives, as part of a healthy, inclusive community". Thanks to all your purchases throughout January I was able to donated $200 to their organization.
