Our Mission Is To Empower The Next Generation of Giving.


On the evening of the event, the three selected charities will pitch to the audience and the Shark, who will question the charities about their cause, organization, business model, impact, etc.


HOW DOES IT WORK?


  1. 10 volunteer committee members organize a charity event (1 x venue, 3 x charities, 3 x Sharks, food & drink).
  1. Each committee member invites at least 10 of his or her friends to make a $100 pledge (or more) to attend the event (10×10… get it?) creating a pool of at least $10K.
  1. Upon arrival, each attendee is given ‘Charity Dollars’ equal to the value of their “Pledge.”
  1. On the evening of the event, the three selected charities will pitch to the audience and Shark who will question the charities about their cause, organization, business model and impact, etc.
  1. Each attendee then decides directly who they want to give their ‘Charity Dollars’ to.

THE CHARITIES


POPS

POPS the Club transforms shame and stigma into hope and healing for teens who are struggling with the Pain of the Prison System. In weekly club meetings, young people with loved ones in prison, jail and detention discover they are not alone. In this safe space, they create community, share their stories, and to listen others'. They make art, write, engage in mindfulness exercises, invite guest speakers and publish and perform our stories and poems. Most students who attend POPS the Club meetings have dealt, or are dealing with, the incarceration of a parent, sibling, other family member, or a friend. Some have themselves experienced incarceration.
