AssistU absolutely believes in doing good while doing well, and regularly donates money to charities that benefit women and children in the US, specifically. While we’re certainly rooting for women and kids the world over, we can only do so much, and believe charity begins at home. As a US-based company , we feel it’s only right to put our attention and efforts here. Once no one struggles at home, we’ll be happy to give in other places.
Here are the charities we’re currently supporting.
A powerful community of women who have survived prostitution, trafficking, and addiction, Thistle Farms manages a residential program to get them off the street and back into living lives they love. Additionally, Thistle Farms engages in social enterprise, to provide vocational training and employment for women in the program. The entire community believes that love heals, and they’re proving it every day. We’re proud to support their work!
No Kid Hungry
One in five kids in the US doesn’t get the food he/she needs every day. Without plentiful, healthy food, kids’ health and development suffer. It also impacts their futures in serious ways. We do believe that the children are our future (thanks, George, and Whitney!), and for them to lead us to a beautiful future, they cannot be hungry. No Kid Hungry believes we can end childhood hunger, and we’re on board with working for that.
The vision of Joyful Heart Foundation is a world free of sexual, domestic, and child violence and abuse. We love that the are passionately working to transform society’s response to these horrible realities while supporting survivors’ healing through a three-prong approach in the areas of advocacy, education, and healing. We love supporting them!
