Austin Involved, making an impact, one nonprofit at a time!
Austin Involved is a program of I Live Here, I Give Here®, where young philanthropists contribute $25 a month and vote on a partner nonprofit to receive the pool of funds, as well as a 3 hour volunteer project for members to learn more about the mission, vision and clients of the nonprofit.
In October, Austin Involved was at Planned Parenthood in Austin.
Did you you that more than 1,000 women in the Austin area will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year?
Volunteers helped to promote women’s health by making over 600 “breast-health” goodie bags in Spanish and English to be used as part of Planned Parenthood’s outreach. They also made over 100 calls to some of the organization’s generous donors to thank them for the contributions that allow Planned Parenthood to take care of the uninsured or underinsured men and women in our community.
