THE RYSE & SHINE
When we launched RYSE, we decided that a portion of our profits should be used for a good cause. We come across so many dynamic individuals, doing phenomenal things, that we wanted to do more than simply tell great stories. We wanted to help bring more great stories to life.
After hours of debating, and fighting with our accountant, we decided that 10% of our annual net profits each year should be used to support the next generation of creatives. To ensure we took this commitment seriously, we launched our 501(c) 3 approved non-profit, the RYSE & Shine Foundation.
Unexpectedly, other partners and supporters have joined us in this commitment and the Foundation has truly taken on a life of its own.
Contrary to what many believe, we know that everyone does NOT have the same opportunities. There are very real barriers, roadblocks, and hardships that limit the true potential of a large portion of individuals living in under-served communities. The challenges they face are most often through no fault of their own.
Therefore, a portion of our financial support goes towards organizations that genuinely work to help those living in under-served communities to see beyond their limiting environments by fostering the development of their creative talents. There is no greater inspiration than helping someone find the spark that ignites the flame buried inside.
We like grassroots programs low on administrative salaries and high on results.
We firmly believe that creativity is colorblind, and that there are numerous innovators and creators searching for an opportunity to showcase their God-given talents.
For that reason, a portion of our annual profits will be used to develop platforms, events, and opportunities in which to support and amplify the talents of these creatives.
Our goal is to ensure that access is no longer a roadblock separating an individual from their creative goals, dreams, and their greatest potential.
To whom much is given, much is required. Our growth has been the result of support from the communities we strive to serve. It gives us great pleasure in being able to pay it forward in helping others achieve their own dreams.
We Give Not Because We Have Much, But Because We
Know Exactly How It Feels To Have Nothing.
