Join us at The Riveter West LA on November 27 as we team up with Global Shapers for #GivingTuesday. This event is part of a campaign by the Global Shapers in California, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, to raise funds to support the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund. For 15 years, the foundation has offered aid to those affected by wildfires.

Enjoy live performances, guided meditation, and community fellowship to support those in need. Assistance will be used to help rebuild homes, provide financial, medical treatment, and mental health assistance. Register for the event here.
