2020 was an unprecedented year due to COVID-19, and therefore many in person events that support charities had to turn virtual. Our team continued the trend of community support during a time when non-profits needed it the most. Below is a summary of some of the friends and causes we were able to contribute to because of our clients partnerships, despite the many challenges fundraising posed this year!
'Tasting with a Twist' to Support the National Braille Press: To celebrate Louie Braille's birthday, and National Braille Press typically hosts a great event at the Hampshire House in Boston, but this year due to social distancing and closures we weren't able to hold the event. tMedia still offered the menu sponsorship donation despite not having the event as so much effort had gone into planning, it will be even better int he coming year.

2020 Virtual Cambridge Montessori Spring Auction Gala: Cambridge Montessori School was founded in 1963 to foster a love of learning and to educate children to be caring, socially responsible citizens of their community and world. To learn more about the school click here.
National Braille Press Gala A Million Laughs for Literacy Virtual 2020 Event Featuring Jim Gaffigan: This event is always inspiring, well run, and offers amazing silent and LIVE auction items that are often exclusive to this event. This year was no exception even with transitioning from in person to virtual. Tom Sullivan, founder of Lumber Liquidators, introduced me to this event 16 years ago, and I haven't missed one since. This year we focused on the advancements that NBP is making for visually impaired readers around the globe, including braille tactiles and educational materials.

Cambridge Montessori School: Our daughter Mabel has enjoyed 3 years, and Ruby's 3rd year at the school continues to be a success. We are happy to be part of such a diverse and passionate community of parents and teachers. To learn more about the Montessori journey, or too support this school directly CLICK HERE.
We also supported various local organizations including: Pann Mass Challenge, Medford Dance Haven Scholarship fund, Girls Scouts Troop in NY and CT, Boston Food Bank, Boys & Girls Club of America, National Alzheimer's Association, Local Police officers of Newton, Boston, Medford MA, and more!
These were some of the highlight's of our charitable partnerships this year. It was great to support causes we are passionate about, but also causes that our clients and friend's are passionate about. "Individually we are one drop, but together we are an ocean." I can't wait to see what 2021 brings, hopefully more chances to connect in person to support the communities we serve!
