We received sad news from the Global Orphan Project on Tuesday, January 11. Our good friend and ministry partner, Pastor Moise Vaval, died in a car accident in southern Haiti.
I founded Never Settle Inc. as a non-profit nearly 10 years ago from my college dorm. In that time, I've come to notice more and more celebrities, athletes, and innovators talking about "not settling" and even using "never settle" as a mantra of their own. Even major brands like T-Mobile, OnePlus, and Hennessy have jumped on the Never Settle bandwagon. While many of these adaptations completely miss the target, I believe there is wisdom and truth in others. I've compiled some of my favorite quotes that encourage all of us to never settle in our own lives. I truly hope they inspire you!
The Never Settle Foundation won a $1,000 grant from the Giving Tuesday Now: GoFundMe Charity Grant Program. GoFundMe Charity is our donation and fundraising platform. In honor of #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5th, they matched $400,000 in donations made to qualified nonprofits using their platform.
Splash is hosting a virtual gala this week from May 12-15th called Just Add Water. The goal for Just Add Water virtual gala is to raise $200,000 to ensure Splash has the resources required to continue serving the kids, schools, and vulnerable communities that rely on their programs. They have reported fundraising over $50,000 before the event has even officially started! We feel confident that with the help of Team Never Settle and other supporters, they will reach their ambitious fundraising goal!
