April is Distracted Driving Month

Posted by mGive Team on Apr 27, 2018 2:45:00 PM

att_icw_logoYou’re cruising along the freeway at 60 mph and you can’t stand that stupid song on the radio another second. The A/C is too high. Your kid is throwing crumbs at the baby. Your phone rings.

Any of these things can distract you while you’re driving. You think you need to look away from the road for just a quick second, and bam. It’s like you’ve just gone a block and half while staring at the clouds.

When we think of distracted driving, the first thing that comes to mind is a teen with a cell phone sending just that one little text, but anything that takes your eyes and your mind off the road is a distraction, and it’s super dangerous.

Hand in Hand: a Benefit for Hurricane Relief

Posted by Ethan Kotel on Sep 13, 2017 10:47:53 AM

Teaming Up to Help Our Neighbors

It's impossible to predict a natural disaster, and almost as hard to truly prepare for one. What really matters in a natural disaster isn't how prepared a city is before it hits, but the generosity of our nation in the aftermath.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Help Us Support Communities Affected by Harvey

mGive-hurricane-harvey-relief.png

Hurricane Harvey is a truly unprecedented weather event. It came with force, delivering sustained 100 mph winds, spitting off tornados, and dumping record-breaking torrents on Houston, our nation's fourth largest city.

 

Citizens have been doing the best they can to survive and adjust in the wake of the storm; however, many are still cut off from basic supplies - food, water, and electricity - and many more have found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly homeless, displaced, often with animals and children in tow.

 

We are so proud and so honored to be able to provide fundraising support to several organizations who are working hard, day in and day out, to provide relief to those affected by this storm.

 

From providing short term supplies, shelter, and search and rescue, to more long term efforts centered around re-homing and reacclimating to a life post-tragedy, our nonprofit partners are doing incredible and selfless work as we speak. Read on for more details on our partners helping in the Gulf.
