Philanthropic Friday


The Maya Macey Foundation

I am very lucky because I have friends who have dedicated their lives to helping others.  Knowing ordinary people who do extraordinary things makes it an absolute pleasure to spread the news of their endeavors (particularly when they do not know that you are doing it in a blog post).

I have a very special friend named Shari who together with her husband, David created an amazing organization that touches the lives of young people in honor and memory of their daughter, Maya.

I would like to introduce you to The Maya Macey Foundation, a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides educational scholarships to deserving young students who have overcome adversity in their personal lives and need assistance pursuing their dreams in spite of the obstacles they have faced.

If you feel like being inspired (you KNOW that you do), please go to the website and click on “Scholarship Program” under which you will find “Success Stories” that you can read to learn about the tenacity and strength of the past scholarship recipients (over 50 thus far to students in South Florida).

It is a beautiful thing to know that there is a living legacy to Maya devoted to helping young people further their education through financial contributions and mentoring.  You can help this family run organization year round and if you are in South Florida in the spring, consider attending the Annual Maya Macey Foundation Barbecue Fundraiser, which is awesome!

I invite you to peruse the website and get to know this organization that was built on love.   This is the BEST kind of information to dish, isn’t it?
