Giving Tuesday: Jam Out While Giving Back

A creative music agency with our roots in community, Marmoset is always on the go when it comes to partnering with impactful organizations — aligning our passion for music and the arts with everyone we meet.

If you’ve been following our latest journey with Give!Guide and our partnership with KairosPDX, you’ll know November has full of advocating for all good things (just as a reminder, we’re matching every donation up to 10k to help Kairos reach their 25k goal before January — learn how you can help them get there). The donating extravaganza is all part of Give!Guide’s mission in promoting the act of giving as both rewarding but more importantly, totally accessible; it doesn’t matter one’s age or financial status, the act of giving bypasses the quantifiable measurement of the actual donation. It all matters.

With these non-profits aligning with a new generation of givers, new opportunities to play an active role within the community arise ; there’s a cultivating of motivation, planting the seeds for future social care and attention. It’s truly a nurturing avenue reminding everyone of their responsibility to their “neighbor,” a reminder we’re all this together.

So on November 27th, Giving Tuesday, the global recognized day of giving, Marmoset is reinforcing the long-lasting value in what Kairos does every day: fostering an environment where marginalized groups can receive an outstanding education, to then go out and apply such principles to the outside world. Kairos is a non-profit normalizing the access to quality educational resources and diminishing inequity in the process; their impact doesn’t stop during school hours, it’s far reaching, offering up after school programs helping kids tap into their creative potential — “After Care” being one of the more recent programs that wrapped recently.

The program offered first graders to third graders an opportunity to create original beats and rhymes, producing and recording a collection of music. The result is a compilation of music overflowing with playful, uninhibited ingenuity. We think you should check it out for yourself.

On this Giving Tuesday, we know you’ll already by thinking of ways to give. We hope you’ll check out the Give!Guide page and donate to a cause that speaks to you and what you hold dear.
