Making an Impact: Announcing Care for Caregivers Fundraiser

How does one make an impact?

Even a seemingly small step can have an impact. Community-centered giving can yield big results. A small act of kindness breeds another, and another.

 

Pongo Power is excited to announce our Care for Caregivers Fundraiser event to support Wadleigh Secondary School for the Performing Arts. The fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, March 31st,  1pm - 5pm, on Zoom!

WadleighArtsI am so excited for the opportunity for Pongo Power to team up with Wadleigh Arts for our fundraiser, Care For Caregivers. Throughout 2020, between countless injustices taking place in our nation, and the pandemic wreaking havoc throughout the world, I would often sit and wonder “but what can I do? The struggles and pain are so widespread, so huge. I feel helpless. I feel powerless. How can I make any kind of a positive impact?” 

Elizabeth Pongo, owner of Pongo Power, and Dulyne Desmangles, VP at Wadleigh Arts, have allowed me the space and opportunity to channel my desires into action. I have been inspired by these women. They are grassroots organizers who consistently take actions toward making the world a better place.

Pongo Power’s mission and vision states “Pongo Power envisions a world where everyone has the tools necessary to take responsibility for their health and wellness, in order to lead a life of freedom, joy, and self-expression.”

WadelighGroundsAt Wadleigh Secondary School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Harlem, N.Y., “scholars are provided the platform to pursue their dreams and passions in order to become productive members of society.” 

Wadleigh’s community was hit hard in 2020. Their caregivers stepped up so that Wadleigh students could continue to pursue those dreams and passions. We want to honor all of those caregivers.

Pongo Power has organized a fundraiser for an emergency fund to help provide essentials for the caregivers of the students at Wadleigh Arts. With this money, caregivers will be able to:

  • provide a metrocard
  • cover a utility bill
  • replace a broken phone, etc.

These little steps can make a big difference. That person can then move through their day with a little less worry, a little less stress, and may be able to relax for a minute, or practice some self-care
