THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE! We just found out that Venmo limits our weekly transfers so we decided to make our first donation! Out of the $7900 that we raised so far, we made our first donation of $4000 to @eji_org. Our donation was matched 2:1 by a friend’s corporate matching program, growing our first $4000 contribution to $12000 🤍 thank you Melina for having your company match our donation, all the vendors who have donated their services and gifts, and our NYC community for such an outpour of love! 🤍 let’s keep this going! Next week we will post our second donation!
