We Are Making An Impact!
$140K and counting for local food banks & animal welfare programs!!!
All Challengers Support Local North Carolina Food Banks, Hunger Relief Programs, and Animal Welfare.
Donations support local North Carolina food banks and hunger relief programs to help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19, food insecurity has doubled worldwide. Our updated goal is to raise a $150,000 to support local programs, including Feeding The Carolinas and the Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary supporting animal welfare in North Carolina.
