Giving back to the CMB community is integral to our culture, and this year’s Pied for Purpose campaign was no different. Inspired by last year’s inaugural “Pied from Pride” campaign, Pied for Purpose is a charitable engagement at CMB that involves pie-ing a team of CMBers in the face (for real!) for a great cause. This year, CMB’s People of Color Affinity Group sought to raise vital funds for The Loveland Foundation.
How we activated the CMB community:
Never underestimate the power of community! Together, we can make an impact. I am proud to announce that we raised a total of $4,032. This is a laugh-filled event that has quickly become a CMB tradition. Can’t wait to see the impact of our 2024 Pied for Purpose fundraiser.
Other members who contributed to this year’s success included: Christelle Kamaliza, Larissa Gavio Binder, and more.
The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations.
The Loveland Foundation is the official continuation of this effort to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, ultimately we hope to contribute to both the empowerment and the liberation of the communities we serve. Learn more here.
