Giving Tuesday Donations

For Giving Tuesday, Little Known Help Zone conducted some civic engagement and gave to a variety of causes near and dear to our mission. These ranged from community to globally, and a diverse number of causes received support.

Jaguar Rescue Center- Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

This is a cause we have worked with extensively in the past (read our posts) and wanted to send a bit more love down there. This organization is doing incredible work with jungle animals in Costa Rica, and we’ve seen first hand how meaningful their work is.

Voices for Biodiversity

This is an anthropological organization that supports biodiversity and cultural diversity through global endeavors, preserving the vital ecology of our earth.

TechGirlz

This great group teaches tech and STEM skills to young girls from underprivileged communities, inspiring passion and helping enrich and mentor young women that may not have the resources.

Allentown Food Bank

This local organization feeds Allentown’s hungry, what more can we say than we want to give back to the community that has made this organization a reality.

Look Good Feel Better

This organization gives women undergoing chemo makeup and classes so that while they are working on getting better, they can feel beautiful.

Wednesday was an exciting 28167076_1193450440790349_3888901553138947203_n.jpg night for LKHZ because we met with our new community partner, the Valley Forge Kiwanis Club. After explaining our mission, as a group we discussed a supplies drive later in the year to continue to build up our collection for the Monthly Classroom Project.

They also gave a wonderful and generous bag of school supplies donations, which we are very appreciative of.
