We  are  so  grateful  to  everyone  contributing  to  one  of  our  chosen  charities  in  lieu  of  a  gift.  Each  of  these  charities  aligns  with  something  we  believe  in  and  has  special  meaning  to  us.  We’ve  chosen  3  charities  to  pick  between,  so hopefully  there  will  be  a  charity  that  has  meaning  to  you  as  well.    Thank  you  again  and  we  can‘t  wait  to  celebrate  with  you!


FareStart

FareStart is a local Seattle non-profit that helps train people living in poverty with the work and life skills to succeed in the food services industry.  They also provide meals to social services, shelters, and schools in the Seattle area.  More than 90% of adult FareStart graduates land good jobs within 90 days of completing the program.  "By investing in people and building community, we transform homelessness, hunger and poverty into human potential."


Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

We believe that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has the resources and know-how to make a real difference in the world.  We want to support them in that mission.  In their words, "THE PATH OUT OF POVERTY BEGINS WHEN THE NEXT GENERATION CAN ACCESS QUALITY HEALTHCARE AND A GREAT EDUCATION."  They work towards this mission in both developing countries and inside the United States.


Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center provides best in class cancer treatment along with being at the forefront of cancer research.  Through a bit of luck, it is at Sloan-Kettering where Kevin's mother received both life extending surgery as well as coordinated treatment with her local oncologist.  For this reason, and the great work that Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center does, we've included it in the list of organizations we're hoping you'll consider providing a donation.
