THE HUMANE SOCIETY
I love being able to use the platform I’ve been given through @whatimholding for good. This post was sparked by a partnership with Hint’d (an online space to create wishlists or "hint" at what you want. You can update your list at any time and also search through the people they have highlighted for inspiration. While the most obvious things to hint are material objects, you can also include experiences and charities on your list which led to this work). When they suggested working with the Humane Society, it felt like a perfect fit. I grew up with dogs and nothing compares to seeing my furry friend when I’m visiting my parents. It’s humbling to think that this post might have helped some animals find a forever home.
This is another organization I fully support. RxArt is a NYC-based nonprofit that works to bring healing to sick children through art. They work with artists to commission installations and do other projects with the children, transforming sterile healthcare facilities into engaging and inspiring environments full of beauty, humor and comfort.
