Thank you for visiting The Gratitude Graffiti Project website. If you are practicing daily gratitude but want to jump start your practice, our recommendation is to try donating your time, energy and talents to one of the following local (and not so local) charities:
1. Maplewood/ South Orange Rent Party/ Back Pack Pals: A project near and dear to our hearts is the M/SO Rent Party and the Back Pack Pals program. For over three years, Chris Dickson and David Wagner have been raising funds for our local food pantries and organizing volunteers to create weekend meals for students in need in our school district. Here’s how you donate: go to a Rent Party. Good music. Good cause. Here is their facebook page.
2. Restore the Shore NJ : It was 1 year ago this time of year when Hurricane Sandy devastated the Jersey Shore and our communities. Today, many families are still trying to recover and communities are healing but the process is ongoing. Here’s a way to help.
3. Charity Navigator: Given recovery efforts still underway in the Philippines and other areas of the world affected by natural disasters, this website is a good resource for navigating reputable organizations for donations.
The flyer above is a link to a new partnership we are doing this year with the Essex County food pantry organization, Meeting Emergency Needs with Dignity (MEND). Please consider donating to the local food pantry in your area. Someone will be grateful you did.
THANK YOU for your generosity.
