In the wake of a devastating election, I kept hearing the same message from my entrepreneurial friends:

"I hate that the issues and groups that I care about will be marginalized because of our new president's closed-minded rhetoric and policies. I want to do something but I don't know what. I feel so helpless."

I know that feeling ... because I went through it. I laid it bed for hours, staring at the ceiling, re-thinking everything that I could have done to impact the election. My mind reeled with thoughts of how women & minorities would be adversely impacted by this election. I cried for hours, tears of frustration, and anger, and fear. 
And then I started wondering what I could do, starting NOW.

I'm a web designer & online marketing strategist, so I decided to provide my services pro bono to one progressive non-profit per quarter for 2017, so that I could help them succeed in the best way I know how.
And then in the morning, I mentioned the idea to a friend who's a copywriter, and she volunteered to be connected with a non-profit if I knew of any. So I mentioned it to my business coach. To my mastermind friends. To a larger facebook group. 
And you guys, I can't explain how quickly & eagerly everyone jumped on the opportunity to DO SOMETHING for our communities at large, to provide USEFUL SUPPORT for non-profits that will be impacted by this major political shift in our society.

So I started Leaders Rise Up, so we can make a difference, together. Because the worst thing we can do is nothing.

At this time, I'm accepting applications from non-profits that will be immediately impacted by the president-elect's priorities, specifically:
- women's health & reproductive rights
- LGBT+ issues
- education (particularly in rural and urban communities)
- environmental issues & climate change
- racial justic
- immigration
(Other issues will be expanded in the future, but this feels like a good place to start.)

So if you're a progressive non-profit that could use support from the entrepreneurial community to share your mission, grow your reach, and raise more money, apply to receive help.
And if you're an entrepreneur or business professional who wants to share your unique skill set with a non-profit that is tackling an issue that faces you and/or connect with a group in your state or community, volunteer.

And if you're not either but you want to support this collaboration to connect business professionals with progressive non-profits, make a pledge today. 

Your money will help me to make Leaders Rise Up run smoothly -- already I've paid for domains & e-mail support, and financial support can help with administrative tools, team support, and marketing efforts.

Let's make a progressive difference in our community, and let's do it now.
