This month we are highlighting special organizations that spark change all over the world. It takes a lot of courage to start a movement and many of the organizations below were birthed out of the passion to combat injustice.
This month we'd also like to take the time to share a cause that's near and dear to our heart. We support education and the goals of our customers all over the world.
Rachel is headed to the New York Culinary Institute of America and we'd love to show our support by sharing her cause!
Please take the time to visit Rachel Jackson-Udeh's GoFundMe Page to learn more about her goals and how you might be able to help.
