Over the years, The Neshama Project has always given a portion of proceeds to support carefully chosen non-profit organizations that stand for innovation and real change. By aligning with the right values, supporting organizations, and providing positive, relevant, and authentic inspiration, we allow for someone’s purchase to stand for something greater, and this right here has the power to shift a regular shopping experience into what we like to call, shopping with meaning.

An updated note from our founder, June 11th, 2020

"I started The Neshama Project as a way to honor my mother's legacy, while also supporting and highlighting various organizations doing their part to make this world a healthier and brighter place. And our mission will continue, only now, we want to support and highlight organizations and people who are doing their part to bring social justice and equality into legislation, into our communities, into our hearts, and most importantly, to the world at large. As someone who has personally benefited from the healing aspects of therapy, and who is currently pursuing her Masters degree in clinical psychology, I am beyond excited to announce that The Neshama Project will be supporting The Loveland Foundation. A non-profit which helps to make therapy accessible to the black community. Please feel free to learn more about this foundation below. And know that your purchase has and always will stand for something greater. Thank you, with all of my heart, for your continued support."

The Loveland Foundation 

 The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. 
The Loveland Foundation is the official continuation of this effort to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls. The mission is to raise $600,000 in order to offer over 5,000 hours of FREE therapy sessions for black women and girls to go to therapy.  
With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. 
Through The Loveland Foundation's partnerships with Therapy for Black Girls, National Queer & Trans Therapists of Color Network, Talkspace and Open Path Collective, Loveland Therapy Fund recipients will have access to a comprehensive list of mental health professionals across the country providing high quality, culturally competent services to Black women and girls.

Additional Organizations We Support

Experience Camps

Experience Camps provide boys and girls whose parent, sibling or primary caregiver has died, with a program that helps build confidence, encourages laughter and allows them to navigate their grief through friendship, teamwork, athletics, and the common bond of loss.

It is a safe environment where kids can explore their grief, break the isolation they may feel with their non-camp peers, and have a whole lot of fun. They have the opportunity to meet and connect with kids who are coping with similar challenges, while getting all of the benefits of the traditional summer camp experience. Through team sports, favorite camp traditions and community living they learn about leadership, confidence and cooperation. Under the guidance of professional bereavement staff, campers have the opportunity to share stories and remember the one who died, while exploring skills that will help them after camp.
