ReadyTalk is proud to have formed a Charitable Contributions Committee in an effort to give back to the community. The committee is headed and run by ReadyTalk employees and any charitable projects are brought to the committee by the employees. Projects are voted by the committee on a case-by-case basis. There are currently three projects that the Committee has approved.
The Relief Project
In collaboration with other recognized non-profit organizations, The Relief Project (TRP) supports communities in immediate need across the United States and around the world. TRP uses music as its platform to raise money, to educate, and to inspire groups and individuals to take a more active role in caring for humanity.
TRP will kick off this next phase of work with a live benefit concert November 29th at the Oriental Theater in Denver, Colorado that will showcase some of the city and state’s best bands. By bringing together top Colorado artists, TRP will raise money to support The Denver Children’s Home, a local nonprofit organization that provides programs and services for emotionally distressed children, adolescents and their families. Specifically, the money will be earmarked towards DCH’s Residential and experiential Art and Music Therapy programs. In conjunction with this effort, TRP is releasing its second compilation CD, The Relief Project, Vol. 2, which will feature songs from Colorado’s most popular and emerging talent.
The International Alliance For Women
The International Alliance for Women’s Microenterprise Development Program alleviates poverty and empowers women by funding Village Banks around the world (more than 60 so far, in Afghanistan, Bolivia, Chile, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Liberia, Malawi, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, and Uganda).
Meet the Wilderness
Meet the Wilderness teaches life skills by providing adventure education programs to youth groups. The programs instill trust, self-discipline, self-esteem, teamwork, communication skills, leadership qualities and confidence in their abilities to meet unique life challenges, actively engage in their community and gain an appreciation of the natural environment. ReadyTalk will sponsor a day trip to Vail, Colorado where children of the program and ReadyTalkers will spend the day team building and enjoying the great Colorado Outdoors.
ReadyTalk is excited to be supporting these wonderful groups and is looking forward to future contributions.
