1/21/18 Happy Birthday Jam Master Jay! His legacy is carried out through his family. They work as hard as he did and care as deeply about access to music education. Let’s band together with them to get teachers what they need! Go to Venmo @jmjfoundationformusic to donate $20.
Leah Okimoto, founder of Aaron’s Presents shared information. This is a fantastic resource for high school students looking for community service ideas.
“We are all about empowering youth by getting them out there in their communities to contribute their time, talents, youthful energy and passion in whatever ways they choose! Visit http://www.aaronspresents.org or our FB page (more frequently updated, just search for Aaron’s Presents and like us!) to see what kids from all backgrounds and neighborhoods are coming up with!”

The organization I work for, Family Promise, works with homeless families and families at risk of becoming homeless to give them the skills and tools to live and support themselves independently (our motto is “Every child deserves a home.”). We’re a national org, but I’m in the NJ headquarters where our very first program was started.
Join Devote.gives now! We want to learn which causes you care about!
