True to the mission of Our World, Better, I wanted to find a way to be a part of the solution during these challenging times. To that end, Tantus is donating to three charities in the global fight against COVID-19: No Kid Hungry, World Central Kitchen, and Direct Relief. I hope you will consider these charities – the icons on the right will direct you to a page where you can donate. Here’s what each of these charities means to me.
No Kid Hungry – In line with Tantus’ philanthropic mission of focusing on improving the lives of children and young women, we selected No Kid Hungry. No Kid Hungry provides healthy meals for children who depend on school meals for a significant portion of their daily nutrition.
World Central Kitchen (WCK) – In 2018, I spent some time travelling with a volunteer from WCK. I was inspired by their mission of providing meals in the wake of natural disasters, but more importantly, their methods. WCK serves as first responders, then collaborates with the community to galvanize long term solutions with local chefs to solve the problem of hunger. WCK’s work in DC and Baltimore has had a profound impact on the community where many of Tantus’ employees work and live.
Direct Relief – Direct Relief works within the US and internationally to equip doctors and nurses with life-saving medical resources. Their mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard for politics, religion, or the ability to pay – feels strongly similar to one of our corporate values: We take care of each other.
I hope by supporting these charities, Tantus can help ease the burden our communities feel. As we face this global challenge, we can band together to protect and uplift the vulnerable among us to make Our World, Better.
Stay safe and healthy,
