Consider Giving to these NYC Locals this Giving Tuesday

Consider Giving to these NYC Local Charities and Non-Profits this Giving Tuesday.

All of which hold a special place in my heart.

1. Volo Kids NYC

"The vision of The Volo Kids Foundation (VKF) is to build communities of active, resilient, and confident kids by unlocking the power of play. We accomplish this purpose by creating safe, youth-centered programming that provides a platform for youth mentorship, promotes health and wellness, and energizes communities. Our program removes barriers to athletic participation, such as limited financial resources and transportation, and is open to children of all races, genders, incomes, and skill levels."

Health and exercise should be a RIGHT, not a privelge.

I had the privelge of running with the Volo Kids Foundation and raising money through the TCS NYC Marathon in 2019.

A 125$ donation supports one child through a seasonal sports program.

2. Black VegFest

Black VegFest is a Black-led intersectional liberation group centering Black Women & Black Queer Folx and advocating for Animal Life.

They host initiatives that bring awareness and increased access of vegan food to oppressed peoples and neighborhoods.

"Black VegFest is about consciously supporting black people in every shape and form and using our voices to defend the voiceless animals!"

They currently have 5 different upcoming initiatives, all taking place in the NYC area.

3. Mind Body Results Cycling

MBR is a Black owned cycyling club that started in the wake of the pandemic as a way to exercise, create community, all the while remaining socially distance.

"Cycling isn’t the inner city sport or activity of choice, especially for minority households. We hope to be a catalyst in changing this narrative while at the same time aiding in unifying our local community...

A multifaceted platform has emerged whether your interests are; a creative way to explore the community, an introduction to competitive cycling, and/or, our most rewarding aspect, engagement in social justice. To do this, we now ask for your support. We ask for help to create a nonprofit that would build on the community, build on cycling, build on physical fitness as well as civic engagement."

Support MBR HERE.
