The mission of IMPACT JUNKIE is to excite, engage, and inspire entrepreneurs, change-makers, and impact-seekers to use their superpowers (talents, skills, abilities) for good — to create real impact in real lives in their cities/communities and around the world. Since the establishment of ImpactJunkie in February 2017, we have already built water wells in Haiti and currently investing in sustainable work for locals to build water wells in their country. Many of our ImpactJunkie members were instrumental in the relief projects of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. This month, we are working with an organization to support Syrian refugees in Athens, Greece, providing tech and entrepreneurial training. We are excited about future projects in Central America, Africa, Asia, and multiple cities in the US.
During our most recent event in Washington, D.C., our team supported the DC Dream Center by organizing and cleaning the gorgeous Southeast White House for the holiday events provided to all in the community. Needy children in the Washington DC community go without proper food, shelter, and small things we take for granted such as a safe place for after-school activities. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, there are many children and families who are at the most risk, and they make up the largest number of people in need around the holidays. While cleaning and prepping, we noticed a special sunroom that stole our heart. It currently functions as an art room for the community’s children.
Sadly, the tables are old, the vinyl on the chairs are split, two tall window panes are missing, and the art supplies are all gone.
Knowing the wonderful support, the DC Dream Center provides to the community by keeping kids off the streets and providing them with a space to be creative, ImpactJunkie has adopted this room and asking for your help. It would not take much to transform this room (pictures available). Together, we will be able to help many of these families’ beautiful children start toward a brighter future using creativity with after-school programs in an awesome, safe, warm room. As a member of this incredible organization, to support a pillar program like DC Dream Center is an honor.
You can find the Dream Center on social media @DCDreamCenter http://www.dcdreamcenter.com/. The Southeast White House is conveniently located behind the Dream Center and both work completely off donations. Their most recent event they gave away hundreds of Leesa mattresses and are currently organizing Thanksgiving baskets to give away to those in need in the community.
Join our Impact project: Monetary donations can help purchase supplies, materials, and have the windows fixed in the art sun-room. We would also take donations such as complete table sets, plastic containers for supplies, and art supplies. We have a team of impactjunkies ready to get this room ready as soon as possible. Our goal is to have the room ready in time for, January 15th MLK Day.
ImpactJunkie is most rewarded when we are able to empower others to have an impact in their communities and around the world. Join us as we drive impact!
