Before a friend’s wedding, my wife and I always look to see if they have a wedding registry to buy a wedding gift. I was trying to think of a unique gift to give Lisa Bloom and Braden Pollock in honor of their upcoming marriage, and I saw that they have created a Benevolent Giving Page for their friends and family to congratulate them while helping others. I would not have expected anything different from them.
Here’s what their Benevolent giving page says:
Braden and Lisa are great supporters of Benevolent and huge believers in the strength of individuals and their potential to thrive. Whether it’s Lisa’s bold work on issues of social and racial justice or Braden’s philanthropic leadership, everyone in Braden and Lisa’s circle of friends, family and colleagues benefit from their leadership and insights.
Give in support of one of the people we’ve highlighted here on our page and consider making a gift in support of Benevolent’s work and growth as well. Ask us how.
This is how Benevolent works: “On Benevolent, people tell their own stories and outline their needs. Here, helping professionals who know them validate the needs. Here, you can choose a need to support and give what you can.” In short, people with real needs share their needs and the cost, and donors can help individuals with these costs. I think it’s a great way for people to give to others in a meaningful manner.
If you would like to congratulate Braden and Lisa and wish them all the best, I am sure they would appreciate a donation in their honor via Benevolent. They enjoy helping others, and Benevolent is a great way for us to help people who can use an assist.
