When you support local businesses you are already making a HUGE impact on non-profits in your area. Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses. If you are looking to invest a little more in your community this year, #GivingTuesday is a great time to show a little EXTRA local love. Giving Tuesday 2019 is just around the corner and we would like to ask that you keep your money where your heart is by contributing to one of these local non-profits’ campaigns on December 3rd.

Designed for Joy
"Do you know how much formula that will buy?!" When Designed for Joy tells their new hires their pay rate, they receive lots of joyful responses. $13.76. That's the living wage the City of Raleigh offers their employees, and that's what DFJ matches for their artisans. This Giving Tuesday DFJ is looking for 1,000 friends to invest $13.76 each month to support their unique work experience. With 1,000 friends supporting DFJ with $13.76 a month, they can confidently continue hiring women knowing they have the space, materials, and most importantly, the wages.

Me Fine Foundation
When it comes to supporting a Me Fine family in need, a little bit goes a long way. $100 can provide a month’s supply of diapers and wipes, or can purchase Chemo Duck for three children going through chemotherapy. $500 will cover monthly utility bill payments for two families. $1,000 can provide 100 nights of hospital parking. These small gestures make a huge impact on families in need, allowing them to focus their time, attention, and resources on what matters most: their child.
