Earlier this year NBA All-star and Olympic gold medalist Jrue and Lauren Holiday announced that Jrue would be pledging the remainder of his NBA salary toward Black Owned Businesses, Black- led non-profits, programs and institutions of higher learning in New Orleans, Indianapolis and the Los Angeles area.
Today, we are so thankful to say that we were selected as a recipient of the Jrue & Lauren Holiday Social Justice Fund. Being a part of this initiative allows the opportunity for black (businesses, nonprofits, schools) like ours to thrive in a time of uncertainty, and gives hope to our communities in the fight for social justice and economic equity. Thank you, Jrue & Lauren! Nobody succeeds in life on their own and what the Holiday Family is doing for people who just want to help people all over the country is a prime example of what believing in eachother & investing in the well being of people looks like . We are looking forward to pulling up our sleeves & getting to work in our community & collaborating with others in order to pay it forward & give to them what the Holiday Family gave to us .
