We Got Us – Direct Relief for Houston Families

$2,273 of $5,000 raised

The winter storm that hit Houston shook us to our core. We went without power, water and so much more. The powers that be failed us, but we will not fail or another. This fund is by the people, for the people. We are meeting immediate needs For items such as diapers, wipes, formula, water, and menstrual care supplies. Many households were already struggling due to the pandemic and have been knocked to their knees, not only by this unprecedented weather event, but by the appalling lack of preparation and response by government leaders. We will not wait for them to lend a hand, but will instead pull one another up, as we always have. The full effects of this event will be felt in the coming days, weeks and months and we will do our best to ease what aches as Houston and Texas heals. You can follow the relief efforts on Instagram: @sankofamama.

The Mental Health Emergency Fund

$1,958 of $20,000 raised

The Mental Health Emergency Fund is an initiative of Jessica Smith Media, a brand committed to empowering the community with resources related to the following areas of wellness: mental, spiritual, emotional and financial. The goal of the fund is to provide stipends to applicants who need access to financial resources in order to better take care of their mental wellbeing. Jessica Smith, Founder, is a Baltimore native with over 10 years of experience in service-based organizations. She wears a number of hats, to include: a writer, community builder, mental health advocate, business coach and mindfulness instructor. She received her B.A. in Communication and Philosophy, manga cum laude, from George Mason University and is currently the Vice President of Engagement of the Black Alumni Chapter.

This cause is near and dear to Jessica’s heart because she has firsthand experience of burnout and reaching a mental breaking point. She made the difficult decision to resign from a full-time job in 2018 in order to self-fund a mental health sabbatical by using her personal emergency fund. During her time off work (14 months), she leaned into various support systems to include family, friends, church community, therapy, and classes to hone in on what she wanted to do with her career when she was ready to start working again. Since then, she has written an E-book on this topic, “How to Stretch Your Emergency Fund during a Crisis” which is available on Amazon.

Nearly 114 million jobs have been lost globally since the pandemic and over 60% of Americans don’t have access to at least $1000 in savings. You should care about this cause because it has touched you or your loved one in some form or fashion. You know what it’s like to make the difficult decision between paying a bill or doing something that will pour into yourself. Only 1 in 3 black adults receive mental health treatment who need it. Some statistics from only 3 months into this pandemic showed the following:

-11% of adults severely suicidal
-13% started or increased substance abuse
-26% experienced trauma disorder symptoms
-31% experienced anxiety/ depression symptoms

We cannot do what we’re called to do if we are not fully functioning. Let’s invest in this cause to make sure we thrive together! Thank you!

Application Requirements:

  1. You must live in or near Baltimore City or County. (Exceptions will be considered).
    2. You must fill out an application by July 31st, 2021.
    3. You must use the funds for mental health support.
    4. You must be in financial need/ have less than $1000 in your emergency fund.

Darrien Johnson, also known as The Community Curator is a 22 year-old prodigy from North Philadelphia who has dedicated her life to serving others. Currently, she is enrolled as a first generation graduate student at Columbia University, School of Professional Studies where she is working to obtain her Master’s degree in Nonprofit Management. With her degree, Darrien aspires to create a nationwide social enterprise where she plans to commune and activate a society of Community Curators ™. With her framework, curators will be equipped with the technical skills to edify their own communities, regardless of background and/or demographic. This education fund has been created by Darrien’s village to help support this changemaker’s college endeavors and furthermore serve as an investment to our community.

  As early as we could remember, Darrien has always loved helping others and giving back. Growing up in Strawberry Mansion, North Philadelphia, the scarcity in resources and access disparity was apparent .  Thus, these experiences inspired her to commit her life to empowering others and alleviating this reality. 

Darrien’s servant leadership journey began when she was just 14 years old while serving as Junior Servant Leader in Philadelphia Freedom Schools. Over time, her leadership and community involvement expanded as she has served in several capacities, including as site coordinator for the Center for Black Educator Development, President of the Epsilon Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc, and as a youth organizer for Philadelphia City Councilman, Isaiah Thomas. In 2017, Darrien completed an international Trip of service in Gambia, West Africa where she taught scholars in grades K-5 basic phonics and writing skills.  In 2019, she was also honored as the Ernest E. Just “Outstanding Leadership and Community Involvement” recipient. 

Today, Darrien currently sits on (4) boards, including The Thomas and Woods Foundation, Millennial Juneteenth, Black Girls Love Math, and The Hatfield House Advisory Panel. More excitingly, her involvement was recently highlighted in the Philadelphia Inquirer, WHYY, and the Philadelphia Tribune. Whether it be through advocacy, mentorship, or simply giving back, Darrien has proven to be valuable asset in our community. Today we are asking you to consider investing in Darrien’s Education fund so that we may support her mission of creating sustainable communities and furthermore leverage resources free of worry; Afterall, her victory is a victory for us all. 

To stay up to date on Darrien’s involvement please visit www.DarrienCJohnson.weebly.com or follow her on instagram @Msparallel.

In an effort to maintain accountability, I will be sure to keep you all updated on my progress this semester through email updates. Thank you again and I look forward to sharing my journey with you all soon!

Operation Care Card

$910 of $30,000 raised

Operation Care Card is presented by World Apparel Co to assist victims of human trafficking. World Apparel Co is a dedicated non profit clothing brand that is set to help bring awareness and solutions to the many issues that flood the World.

We understand that we may not be able to take trafficking down as a whole (yet), but what we do know is that we can start by creating an impact through this mass campaign fund. Operation Care Card will be able to provide survivors with the essential items such as PPE items, pharmaceuticals, etc.

Funds will assist the Advocacy Agency that is a part of the Office of the Texas Governor Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT). Operation Care Card is a mass campaign to provide essentials for victims of human/sex trafficking. The goal of this operation is to assist in providing essential items that a survivor will need when recovered from “the life”. We want to help eliminate one less worry by meeting a survivor’s basic needs. Meeting their basic needs means a survivor can begin their process to heal and recover from their traumatic experiences while being forced into “the life”. It takes many resources and boots on the ground to assist with the comfort of the survivors after recovering them from “the life”. With your contribution to this operation we will be able to achieve this goal.
