Why did you start All Things :13, Inc.?
All Things :13, Inc. was born from a desire to celebrate young women of color in a way that supported the principles of self-love, self-care, and self-esteem. The initial idea was to host a Ball that was beautifully decorated, with decadent foods, gifts, music, and more - an event that would make young women feel like royalty! As we began fleshing out the details of the event, I realized there was room in our community, for an entity that brought people together to do good, regardless of class or social status. What started as a single event, turned into a platform by which like-minded individuals would come together to support the under-represented members of our community. This would include, grass-root organizations, underfunded projects, and individuals who were simply making a difference. Additionally, the prospect of fusing some of the things I love most (philanthropy, having fun, and social events) could become a reality.
Giving is one of the most powerful principles of all time. When members of the community pull together to merge our abilities and resources, we can have a positive impact on the world around us. Through collaboration and joint action, we can maximize opportunities that respond to our community's needs for change.
With All Things :13, your support directly benefits families throughout Delaware.
How does All Things :13 work?
Community members nominate a local cause or organization in need of support.
All Things :13 selects a project and organizes a charitable event to leverage volunteers, resources, or funding to address the need.
All Things :13 donates 100% of net proceeds to support the cause. Simple!
How is All Things :13 funded?
Our funding is three-fold:
All Things :13 is fortunate to have a dynamic Board of Directors who donates their time, talents, and treasures to support the organization's mission. We pay dues on a quarterly basis to offset administrative and operating costs.
Our events present another opportunity to generate revue, specifically for our beneficiaries. Event participants purchase tickets, raffles, and offer general donations in support of our cause/organization for the year.
Sponsor support plays a big role in meeting operating and event costs.
