Pennies In Protest- In March 2010, a hate group came to our hometown of Richmond, Virginia to protest local Jewish and LGBT organizations. Instead of combating hate with more anger, we came together as a group of friends, and used the visit as an opportunity to spread kindness through the community. In less than a week, we raised over $14K and gave it directly to the targeted organizations. You can do it, too. Find out how here.
These are just a few projects over the years to find more, you can check out these links:
