Thankful Thursday Initiative

Introducing #ThankfulThursday

Thankful Thursday was created as an effort to support the organizations and communities that strive to make the world a better place. Every 3rd Thursday of every month we randomly select one of you, our clients, to choose a non-profit organization you'd like to support. All you need to do when selected is to choose one from our curated list of hard working local and global non-profit organizations. We will make a donation to them in your name.

These non-profit organizations share Arise Design + Brand core values, and we've had the privilege to personally get to know and do meaningful work with some of them. They support communities in need, protect the environment, and provide tools and means for individuals to reach their full potential.

Get to know these wonderful organizations:

Adapt Functional Movement: Adapt provides a complete recovery and treatment experience for individuals with movement disabilities. They provide an array of recovery techniques to people living with conditions such as spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and more.

Alpha Project: Alpha Project is a non-profit human services organization that serves over 4,000 men, women, and children each day. Their mission is to empower individuals, families, and communities by providing work, recovery and support services to people who are motivated to change their lives and achieve self-sufficiency. Their services include providing affordable housing, basic and emergency services for the homeless, transportation assistance, mental health counseling, employment training, education, and much more.

Coastkeeper: Coastkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore San Diego’s fishable, swimmable and drinkable waters. From science and monitoring to advocacy and empowerment, they stop pollution in its tracks and work to restore precious resources to health. San Diego Coastkeeper and partner organizations have removed more than one million pounds of debris from area beaches and waterways.

San Diego Humane Society: A non-profit animal welfare organization committed to ending animal homelessness. The work by preventing cruelty/neglect, providing low-cost community spay/neuter, rehabilitating wildlife and providing safety net services for pet families needing assistance.

Women Empowerment International: WE’s mission is to empower women with tools to work their way out of poverty, care for their families, and strengthen their communities. With a focus on funding small, repayable loans to help women start modest, income generating businesses. Get to know women like Odette in Haiti that have transformed their communities for the better with the tools provided by WE.

We hope this inspires others to start their own positive social impact initiative. These donations made in your company's name are a generous way to help nonprofit organizations that support your brand values and help give back to the community.
