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 then 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 will be used to support young, up and coming creatives and story-tellers in helping them bring more great stories to life through our 501(c) 3 approved foundation.
Contrary to what many believe, we know that every-one does not have the same opportunities. There are very real barriers, road-blocks and hardships that limit the true potential of a large portion of today’s under-served youth. Challenges they face that are through no fault of their own.
Therefore, a portion of our financial support goes towards organizations that genuinely work to help under-served youth overcome these circumstances by fostering the development of their creative talents and provides them with a platform to showcase that talent.
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 and dreams.
To whom much is given, much is required. Our growth has been the result of support from the community we strive to serve. It gives us great pleasure in being able to pay it forward in helping others achieve their own dreams.
