MOTIVATION | Alissa Jacob + Aliza Zelin Neidich

Child Mind Institute  is an amazing organization dedicated to helping children and families struggling with mental health issues and learning disorders. We both grew up either dealing with these issues ourselves or with loved ones who struggled to find appropriate care. Their approach is rooted in science and founded on empowering children and parents with the tools they need to succeed. 

Best Friends Animal Society. As proud parents of rescue dogs, we both know firsthand how much joy they are capable of providing and how much of an impact you can have by rescuing. BFAC is the largest no-kill animal shelter in the US. They do a great job of organizing community programs and partnerships in support of their mission to bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets. Why buy a pet when there are so many who need homes?
