La Casa de Don Pedro held its most successful End of Year Giving Tuesday Campaign to date in December of 2019. Hundreds of donors came together to give joy, spread love, and inspire hope. Together they donated holiday gifts to the 1000+ children we educate, collected packed shopping bags full of fresh food and produce that was distributed to more than 650 food insecure families, and raised more than $20,000 to support La Casa's programs and services. Thank you to all who gave and volunteered their time. Let's take it a step further next year! #empowerandrevitalize #GivingTuesday #GivingTuesday2019 #newark #lacasadedonpedro #communityrestoration #communityservice #dogoodfeelgood #mygivingstory

Our 2019 #GivingTuesday Campaign has officially come to an end. We started out with three goals in December: distribute 500 bags of food to our families in need, hand out gifts to the 1,000+ children we serve, and collect $20,000 to strengthen our programs and services! Today we’re proud to announce that we’ve EXCEEDED ALL OF OUR 2019 GOALS!!! Members from large corporations and small businesses alike along with compassionate individuals and teams of volunteers all pulled their resources together to make sure each child in our eleven preschool, infant/toddler and youth and family centers received good, quality gifts! Not only did our donors help share gifts to each of our 1,000+ children, but we were also able to hand out fresh vegetables, groceries, and over 400 turkeys, hams, and meats! Thanks to your generosity, 650 food insecure families’ dinner tables were a little more plentiful over the holidays. And, even though we were still short on our financial goals on December 30th, our donors came through in the midnight hour to help us PASS our $20,000 goal! THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS AND SUPPORTERS! WITHOUT YOU, NONE OF THIS WAS POSSIBLE! #newark #lacasadedonpedro #communityrestoration #communityservice #empowerandrevitalize #mygivingstory #grateful #makeadifference #dogoodfeelgood

Why do we need your help? A recent study showed that Essex County has the highest food insecurity rate in New Jersey at a whopping 16.3%, which amounts to over 130,000 people! That's over 4% higher than the National rate. This is why La Casa is taking a stand against food insecurity in our communities but we can't do it alone. No one should be going to bed hungry. Donate today to help us end hunger. The deadline to give non-perishable foods is tomorrow, December 13th and we're collecting perishable meats/foods on Tuesday, December 17th!

Last week was special because I was introduced to a movement that is completely reshaping lives. Meet the phenomenal @willinghamrhonda, founder and President of @menzfit. MenzFit is a #nonprofit helps men in disadvantaged situations get back on their feet by providing them with grooming kits, professional wear, and developmental workshops to thrive in the workplace. It was powerful to hear the poignant redemption stories from Menzfit alum who have reclaimed their independence. Guess who's about to help them rewrite the narrative for the men of Philadelphia 👀?

WHEN YOUR LIFE IS IMPACTED FOR THE BETTER— THE RESPONSE IS a heart of gratitude. _ A heart that gives! _ GIVING TUESDAY — _ I want to give a shout out to a community that I give credit to for much of my SPIRITUAL FORMATION. Many people have a special person or specific people who impacted their life greatly— I want to take a moment to brag on a community that showed me through actions and words to follow the ways of Jesus, to practice spiritual disciplines, to be formed by sound doctrine and the Holy Spirit, and to live a life that’s fruit is love! I was guided to receive correction, walk humbly and to love what God’s heart loves. I am grateful to God for drawing me into @ekkochurch and for the SPIRITUAL FORMATION that happened amidst this community. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!! _ Today I want to encourage you to look at your life and respond in gratitude to the people who have IMPACTED your life! _ I find it fitting on “Giving Tuesday” to give a shout out to Ekko Church, a place where much of my spiritual formation in learning to follow Jesus became my way of being. The beginning of my learning to be generous with my time, talents and money began. _ Today I’m choosing to support @solidaritynpo , I would love for you to join me in supporting the amazing work they are doing in Fullerton. $9.10 supports an hour of after school tutoring for a struggling young person. This investment is in the formation and character development of our youth. Link in bio to participate 💖! I know that this generous community is also committed to supporting @charitywater — I have a link in bio for you to choose to donate to this work as well! _ Instead of being overwhelmed by options to give—choose to follow where God is tugging at your heart! Maybe that is one of these—maybe it is another option. Regardless of where you feel led to invest today, I encourage you to choose again a lifestyle of GIVING! Be a person who follows Christ in LOVE through giving out of the amazing grace you received in salvation! Be a person who follows God with an open heart and open hands 🤲🏻 ! THEN be amazed at what God is doing. #resurrectionlife _ How will you practice a lifestyle of giving today?

One final stat we want to leave you with is this. Sometimes we take for granted that we have the basic necessities in life like food on the table or a roof over our head. But as we move into the harsh winter, keep in mind that not everyone has the same resources available to them which is a shame when there's so much to go around for everyone. Help us be part of the solution tomorrow night and beyond.

This should be cause for immediate concern and action from EVERY one of us as it could happen to ANY one of us!

Until we address the unfair growing economic disparities we face in our country, hunger and homelessness will always be prevalent.

To understand the problem, you have to identify the cause of said problem. This particular stat speaks directly to that. Until we address the unfair growing economic disparities we face in our country, hunger and homelessness will always be prevalent. We have enough resources to go around for everyone but our system is flawed. It's up to US to fix that system! #fixthesystem #thesystemisbroken #endcapitalism #hungerstats #hiphopagainsthunger #hiphopgivesback #hiphopforacause #benefitshow #benefitconcert #feedthehomeless #endhunger #newark #newarkhiphop #itsbiggerthanhiphop #communityrestoration #empowerthehomeless

“There’s no better feeling than knowing that I’m bringing what I learn in school home to the partnership and helping to restore our lands.” — Shawaan Gamble-Jackson, Keex' Kwaan Community Forest Partnership crew lead. In southeast Alaska, there is a growing partnership between the tribal government in Kake, state and federal agencies, nonprofits and others, working to build climate resilience, invigorate the local economy, and most of all, reinstate the voice of the Keex’ Kwaan community as the foremost authority over their lands. Now on our blog, KKCFP Coordinator and Ecotruster @miakahnix shares field notes from working with a crew of five local young people as they conducted ecological surveys of the land. Link in bio. First four photos are by @bethanysgoodrich.

For this year's featured artist, we're proud to present to you a local legend in the graf and street art world, Chris “Cent” Reyes. Born and raised in the Kearny/Newark area, @cent_pfe finds graffiti to be a constructive part of his life, keeping him out of trouble in some instances, and landing him square in it in others. A first generation American, Chris’ parents relocated from Chile in hopes of better opportunities. Consequently, he grew up with a lack of extended family and, naturally, a lack of guidance. Therefore the streets became his playground; the walls his canvas, and spray paint his brush.Today, Cent is an entrepreneur and professional artist showcasing his talent via public and private art commissions, “Official Bizness” branded t-shirts, flyer design, and art show production. He is also part of the @drscollective which includes a coalition of artists, musicians, and DJs. His work can be found all over the streets of the Tri-State area and we're very fortunate to feature him at this year's event, where he'll be creating a live piece which one lucky attendee will be able to take home via our Rebuild Raffle! #centpfe #cent #drscollective #graffiti #streetart #hiphopagainsthunger #hiphopgivesback #hiphopforacause #benefitshow #benefitconcert #feedthehomeless #endhunger #newark #newarkhiphop #ymcanewarkandvicinity #dogood #bethechange #giveback #beselfless #lovethyneighbor #communityrestoration #empowerthehomeless #foodnotbombs
