Started in 2012, Giving Tuesday is a chance to give back and impact your community through donations, volunteerism, and helping others.
In addition to running their own businesses, some mom business owners also run their own non-profits as a way to further give back to their communities.
We hope you'll take the time to learn more about and support these MOB non-profits.
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.
After unexpectedly losing her youngest son Amanda Drews received both financial and emotional support. She now hopes to help other parents in the same position receive that same level of support through Buzzy's Bees.
RISE (Re-Inventing Social Enterprise)
RISE was started by four founding members (three of whom are moms) that have a deep love and connection to the underserved population of young people and families in the Beaverton area.
While directly working with this population in high schools, there was a direct need that was recognized which wasn't being served: these students needed deep connection, cultural representation in their mentors and adults that would invest their time, resources and energy to counteract the inequities that impact our local students, young people and families.
RISE aims to enhance the richness of its local diverse community through relationships, entrepreneurship, youth engagement and opportunity enhancement. It is student led with members/mentors as guides and providers of opportunities.
