North Texas Giving Day
North Texas Giving Day hits close to home for us at Tegan. So much of our client roster hails from the non-profit sector, so it’s always special to see their missions celebrated.
Of course, like mom says, we love all of our clients equally. No class pets over here. But it feels good to set aside time each year to gather support for our friends dedicated to serving others. From throwing birthday parties to serving the area’s senior community, our non-profit partners are true to their mission statements. Each one works tirelessly to put the needs of others before themselves. They’re the kind of people we want to be when we grow up. And when will that happen for us? Great question.
Without further adieu, we’d like to introduce the best non-profits in the universe. Yes, this is an official title. No, we hold zero bias.
Legacy Senior Communities
Our friends at The Legacy have been serving Dallas’ seniors for nearly 65 years with unparalleled care and compassion. The organization offers a full continuum of care to seniors and their families, including independent living, assisted living, memory support, skilled nursing and rehab, and hospice. As LSC’s Agency of Record, we’ve had the privilege of walking closely with their team over the last few years, witnessing first hand the incredible heart behind the organization. Their dedication to serving the Dallas senior community with dignity is amazing. What else is amazing? Their five-star, resort-style living accommodations. You’ll want to add them to your retirement bucket list ASAP.
The Birthday Party Project
This organization is the reason we now think cupcakes are an acceptable breakfast. Paige Chenault and her team at The Birthday Party Project are changing the world, one birthday party at a time. The non-profit is dedicated to bringing children experiencing homelessness JOY through the magic of birthday parties. With the support of birthday enthusiasts (volunteers), The Birthday Party Project partners with homeless shelters and transitional living facilities to host monthly birthday parties. In case you’re wondering how the pandemic popped their birthday balloons- it didn’t! Paige and her team developed a variety of ways to celebrate kids from a social distance-like Birthday in a Bag– because they’re birthday ninjas. They’ve celebrated more than 13,000 birthdays all over the country and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Go ahead and put your party hat on. This is one you don’t want to miss.
Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum
The Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum is dedicated to teaching the history of the Holocaust and advancing human rights to combat prejudice, hatred and indifference. Every inch of the stunning 55,000 square foot facility serves to share unforgettable stories and experiences. We guarantee you’ll leave this museum forever changed. When DHHRM opened its new location in downtown Dallas in 2019, it welcomed more than 80,000 visitors and 34,000 school children its inaugural year.
National Breast Cancer Foundation
Is there a more worthy cause than life? The answer is no. Our friends at the National Breast Cancer Foundation provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer. Founded in 1991 by a breast cancer survivor, NBCF’s mission is to provide early detection, education and support service to women across the world. The non-profit aims to fill in the gaps of cancer care, working to ensure that underserved communities have access to the information they need to get through every step of their breast cancer journey. NBCF has provided over one million services to women, changing lives for the better every single day.
Of course, there are thousands of worthy causes that could use your support on North Texas Giving Day. But like we said, these are the official best non-profits in the universe. How can you argue that? Check out exactly how to give here. It’ll take you maybe two minutes, and it’ll be the best use of your time today. Except for reading this blog post. Excellent use of time, my friend.
