Since I was little, giving back has been an important part of my everyday. I not only want to spread custom desserts to others, but also give back to any and every charity I can partner with. Starting in December of 2020, DMW will be partnering with one Charity or Organization a month and directly donate 20% of our proceeds. (click Eat Chocolate to enjoy a creation and give back to the charity of the month)
Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way society approaches homelessness. Our unique model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead. For all in need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope. For all with the capacity to serve – volunteers, donors, community and corporate partners – we seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.
Over the past 51 years, our mission at the National Headache Foundation has been to further awareness of headache and migraine as legitimate neurobiological diseases. Much has changed during this time, and with the aid of advanced technology and clinical innovation, there are more treatment options than ever before. However, we understand that these diseases are still largely misunderstood and that finding the right treatment options for you requires nuanced and adaptable insight.
A Chance In Life was founded in 1945 to serve the thousands of war orphans living on the streets of Italy after WWII. Today, A Chance In Life provides residential educational programs and supportive services through local partners to marginalized groups such as refugee youth in Italy, poor and disabled youth in Ethiopia, and children from underserved communities in India, Uganda, and across Latin America. Central to each program is A Chance In Life’s model of positive youth development, through which children cultivate leadership skills as they work together to establish the rules and take responsibility for their communities. In 2020, A Chance In Life launched our first US-based program to serve young people in our home community of New York City.

Through this fund, we hope to provide ongoing support for the women entrepreneurs who aspire and build within our classrooms and halls, ensuring that Helena can continue making a difference.
Citymeals on Wheels provides a continuous lifeline of nourishing meals and vital companionship to New York City’s homebound elderly. Each year, Citymeals prepares and delivers over 2 million weekend, holiday and emergency meals for more than 18,000 of our frail aged neighbors. Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, Citymeals has delivered over 2.5 million meals to vulnerable older New Yorkers – 800,000 more than during the same period last year.
In 2010, a group of do-gooders, led by co-founders Brendan Hanrahan, Chad Leathers and Bobby Gill, dropped their pants, and ran through the DC cold to raise money for research to help end neurofibromatosis (NF), a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. They ran in their undies because those affected with NF can’t cover up their tumors, so they decided to strip down in solidarity. Now every year in several cities across the country during the month of February, Cupid’s Charity hosts pants-less parties where you can participate and celebrate this cause.

The Horace Greeley Scholarship Fund (HGSF) exists to make up “the difference” between the actual costs of college and all other financial resources available to students and their families (i.e. loans, scholarships, work-study, student savings, and parent contributions). Many families in Chappaqua, NY have trouble affording all the costs of college and the HGSF gives Horace Greeley High School students and alumni grants to cover any financial deficits families may have.
