Most people know Sesame Workshop for our flagship television show Sesame Street, but we’re also a nonprofit organization on a mission to help kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. This year, as families around the world face new challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we launched Caring for Each Other, a global initiative that helps families provide comfort, manage anxiety, and foster playful learning at home. With help from the Muppets of Sesame Street, we’ve delivered critical health messages and early educational lessons to children and families in 41 languages and over 100 countries.
Sesame Workshop is committed to supporting children and families throughout this crisis and beyond. Our materials always offer child-friendly explanations and strategies—plus self-care tips for grown-ups, too. By giving families tools to help them get through challenging times, we hope that, together, we can look to sunny days ahead. Support our efforts here.

1 out of 10 pregnant women and new moms experience depression. Many women cannot afford the emotional support they need, impacting not only them, but also the families that depend on them. We’re witnessing a spike in anxiety and depression among this vulnerable and vital population, especially in our under-served communities. At Seleni, we treat, train, support, and advocate to improve the emotional health of individuals and their families during the family-building years. We believe all individuals should be able to receive treatment with dignity. Please join us & donate today.
Envolve believes that through diversification of opportunities and greater access to resources for entrepreneurs, we can eradicate barriers in underserved communities, revitalize them, and bring people together to induce change. Under the pillars of education, awards, and business resources, we advocate for under-resourced communities and equip them with stepping stones towards entrepreneurial success. The entrepreneurs and small business owners within our network are deeply ingrained in their community fabrics. Our connection to them is a connection to community, and our programming reflects those holistic needs within our impact regions. Entrepreneurs and small business owners are the ones who respond directly to the needs of their community, whether that’s finding local solutions to combat the effects of climate change or providing healthy food options. At the core of entrepreneurship is creative problem solving. Every day we see founders creating pathways to their dreams and positive change in their communities. Organizations such as ours are here to do our part and we support diverse entrepreneurs in their efforts to live their dream or very simply address a gap in the entrepreneurship landscape. Why? Because Representation matters. We ask you to support Envolve and work together to support the under-served, yet equally worthy, entrepreneurs in our communities. Learn more about how to support Envolve USA and our entrepreneurs here.
In Greece there are more than 2,350 unaccompanied refugee children outside of a system of protection with no access to basic care, services, nor information on their rights. They live in appalling conditions exposed to all sorts of dangers from child abuse to organ trafficking and sexual exploitation. The HOME Project is a non-profit organization set up to address the needs of refugee children, who arrive in Greece alone. The HOME Project receives children from the streets, camps, police stations, detention centers and brings them to the safety of its HOMES where they receive a holistic network of child protection services, via an individual development plan that includes mental health, educational, social, pedagogical and legal support, with the ultimate aim of social inclusion. Support us on #GivingTuesday to continue providing a safe HOME for 270 children in the 14 shelters in Athens, Greece. Learn more about our work here.
Help YMCA Ethiopia support single mothers and their children with food, shelter and the chance to build a better future.
Since the outbreak of COVID the number of vulnerable single mothers in Ethiopia has skyrocketed. Today, The YMCA is supporting more than two hundred single moms and their children by providing nutritious food, skills training and financial grants, small stipends to pay for shelter. Without our program, many of the mothers and children we help would be forced to live on the streets.
We need your help. Every donation counts, no matter how small. One-time gifts are gratefully accepted and used to support the mothers and their children in our program. Pledge payments over time can be arranged according to your individual preferences. Thank you.
In 2018, Horizon was of the first biopharma companies to join the Pledge 1% philanthropic movement and was thrilled to already be meeting three of the four commitments. In order to meet the fourth commitment of donating 1% of equity, Horizon is launching a new equity employee donation match program on Giving Tuesday. They hope this program will educate employees of their ability to donate equity, simplify the equity donation process for employees, and incentivize employees to donate by offering a corporate match. Their nonprofit partners intend to use the equity donations and corporate match to help more children living with rare diseases be adopted through the #RAREis Adoption Fund (giftofadoption.org); to provide supportive services for women and children experiencing homelessness (lakecountyhaven.org); to start a certificate program to expand career opportunities for high school students (pcsedu.org); and, to provide additional university scholarships for the most marginalized of young women (asian-university.org). Horizon believes their new program is an innovative approach to engaging employees in impact, one that goes beyond traditional philanthropy and volunteerism.
