Last week, a huge turnout of Boston Crewmembers met in the Crew Lounge and decorated more than 90 Sweet Cases for Together We Rise, our new CSR partner. BlueCities across the network have joined together for this nonprofit organization that supports foster care children, and our inbox is overflowing with photos of everyone participating!
The Boston session was particularly special beause Together We Rise founder, Danny Mendoza, who started the organization when he was in college. Danny’s nine-year-old cousin was living in a car and reached out for support, but in his efforts to help the boy, Danny was faced with several obstacles from government agencies. So, he started his own charity that helps foster children and gives them the confidence to make changes in the world.
During the Sweet Cases decorating session, Danny spoke to our crewmembers, explaining how the program started and how important the bags are to foster children. Crewmembers were proud to show him our Caring Value in action.
