It could be because of immobility instigated by a car repair they can't afford, a sick child who needs medical care that pulls resources from the household, or the inability to pay for the certification needed to take a new (better paying) job. Too often needs like these entrap smart, hardworking people in a cycle of poverty – without a clear way out. In fact, Richmond is one of the lowest ranked cites in the nation for individual economic progress. The Giving Wall is the location where these needs, and the stories behind them, are posted and shared so that you can #giveprogress.
At The Giving Wall we believe that words matter, and talk should not be
cheap. How we ‘label’ others or ourselves can hurt, or it can help. The Giving Wall seeks to not
only help by shining a light on hard-to-find critical needs in our community, but also by
changing the way we see and know one another through generous, helpful labels, and through
story. That’s why we consistently use two positively powerful labels to identity those who visit
The Giving Wall.
Believer (noun) the person who believes that the kindness of others coupled with their own hard work will pull them out of poverty.
Supporter (noun) the person who provides progress to members of our community through their contribution of time and money on The Giving Wall.
The Giving Wall was designed for both speed and impact. Support a hardworking member of our community living in poverty (a 'believer') in three powerful steps.
