Black Lives Matter

The two MLK quotes that particularly comes to mind in these times are:

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?"

My wife and I recognize we have not done enough for the African American community. We vow to get involved and to do our best to make a difference. This is just one step along that path. 

We would like to raise at least $150k to benefit the NAACP Legal Defense & Educ Fund Inc (Ldf), and any donation will help make an impact. We will match 1:1 up to $75k and will do so every Friday until we meet our goal. 

We encourage you to raise your voice, get involved and show up. Thank you for your support.

6/25/20 Update: this fundraiser will end July 2, 2020
