As part of the initiative at LegalEASE, we are going to help raise awareness about many different underserved groups. You can see the awareness this month by our Black History Month celebration. As part of this awareness, we are going to put our money where our awareness is, to use part of an old phrase. That is, we are going to select a charitable group that specializes in helping the underserved community we will be creating awareness for and conducting a fundraiser to help that group. Any employee will be free to give, or not, and whatever is given will be matched by a contribution from LegalEASE to help the charitable work each charity is doing. I am really excited about this part, as we can help more people with our actions and our donations.
For Black History Month, we have selected Black Girls Smile!
Black Girls Smile was founded with a mission to provide young Black women with education, resources, and support to lead mentally healthy lives. BGS' mission is grounded in research, focus group findings, and personal experiences highlighting the under-served and underrepresented mental health needs of young Black women.
BGS envisions a society that through the normalization and dialogue surrounding mental wellness, all individuals, including young Black females are provided education, support, and resources necessary to lead mentally healthy lives.
"BGS thanks you in advance for your support and contribution to our mission and work! We appreciate you joining us along this journey to ensure all BLACK GIRLS SMILE!"-Lauren Carson BGS Executive Director/Founder
