For Giving Tuesday, we hope you'll consider donating to these non-profits created by MOBs.
Curvy Chic Closet Foundation
Curvy Chic Closet Foundation’s mission is to empower and inspire plus-size individuals to be their best selves through addressing how to overcome body obstacles and developing strong, body-positive advocacy for all.
Founded by Becky Jarvis, the nonprofit was created when Becky realized how many people were sharing their personal stories of how they were beginning to overcome body image obstacles and their desire to be role models for younger generations.
The Curvy Chic Closet Foundation promotes self-confidence and self-love through biannual fashion shows, model boot camps, empowerment photo shoots, mentoring programs, and by showcasing designers that design plus-size fashion.
"It is our hope that these programs will develop a strong alliance of empowerment to teens and adults who can carry our mission forward to inspire others in our community," says Becky.
She is inspired by the community support her first event is receiving. Scheduled for February 9, 2019 at Cobalt Studios PDX, the event is for teens and young adults.
"There are so many people giving their time and resources to empower and inspire our younger generation. Many of us have experienced body shaming and want to change this," she says.

After unexpectedly losing her youngest son Amanda Drews received both f\financial and emotional support. She now hopes to help other parents in the same position receive that same level of support.
Stan Brock's Black & Gold
The Black & Gold events are shooting and fishing derbies, along with a banquet dinner and auction. One event is held in Portland, Oregon and the other in Louisiana.
Behind the busy events, the heart of the nonprofit is the well-being of the military member and their family. When a soldier is deployed or injured, to know that their family is taken care of allows that soldier to do his or her job/recover.
The organizers behind the Black & Gold events want military members to know that they are not alone, they do not have to do this by themselves, and that they are supported at home.
The Louisiana event has a public concert in addition to the main shooting, fishing, and banquet events with NFL celebrity guests. The Portland event has a bigger military presence with a banquet as the focus.
Emily Jones, one of the organizers of the events, says she is inspired by people showing up for each other.
"Strangers showing up for others, knowing that we are all connected somehow. Seeing the team that can come together made of people who, 15 minutes ago, didn't know anything about one another. They show up. They show up for the ones who need help, even if they are hurting themselves. The military brings people together as family, and we are learning as civilians to do the same."
