Earlier this month, Meta had announced more ways to give back this holiday season. With “GivingTuesday” right around the corner. Let’s have a look at how Meta is spreading kindness in the GivingTuesday and beyond!
“The holiday season brings not only toys and tunes, but also the gift of giving. Giving back to your neighbors, organizations you care about and those who are most vulnerable in your community creates a ripple effect of kindness. And that’s what GivingTuesday is all about.” says Meta. Hence it is recognizing people who have been generous every day.
12 year old Chelsea Phaire founded Chelsea’s Charity with the aim of improving children’s mental health with art. “She assembles art supplies kits and donates them to children at homeless shelters and others going through hard times. Chelsea uses Facebook to encourage others to give back, from gifting art supplies to hosting “packing parties.” Through Facebook, Chelsea is also able to identify kids who may benefit from her art kits.” Through her art kits Chelsea also hopes to show everyone the power of art as a medium for expressing emotions.
Acushnet Pet Food Pantry
Kenneth Gonsalves and his wife Jill started Acushnet Pet Food Pantry for pet owners in their community after seeing that there was no open pet food pantry and that a man struggled to pay for a can of pet food. “They’ve also used Community Help on Facebook to request specific items they’re low on, like cat litter or dog food. On a busy day, Acushnet Pet Food Pantry can go through 100 lbs of food, and they often give out hundreds of pounds of food each week.”
Cloud Covered Streets
“Robert Thornton brings mobile showers, haircuts, laundry facilities and meals to people experiencing homelessness through his nonprofit Cloud Covered Streets. He was able to found Cloud Covered Streets after raising more than $105,000 by fundraising on Facebook and transformed a 22-foot cargo trailer into a mobile unit and stock supplies.” Currently Robert serves Phoenix’s homeless community three times a week with the help of 600+ volunteers!
