Overview
What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?

R.B.F. is dedicated to supporting kids in need. We ensure their basic needs are met so that they can focus on learning. 26.4% of families live below the poverty level line. Children below the poverty level experience anxiety, depression, stress and educational barriers such as lack of personality and lower self-esteem. The lack of proper resources such as supplies and clothing lead to irregular attendance resulting in poor test and grade results even for a student who is trying to succeed. Not all families have the luxury of choosing which IPad or Laptop to buy their children some can’t even scrape enough money to even affording loose-leaf paper.

How will you use the $10k?

Since RBF is a small non profit our over head is minimal know that almost all of your contribution will be dedicated to assisting those in need. In 6 months span RBF will host and assist with several events helping children in the below income or poverty level with much needed school supplies as well as provide the support that homeless individuals and families need, we provide a sack lunch or warm meal toiletries and hygiene supplies as well referrals to services and housing available to them in their region and or area.

What impact do you hope to make?

We hope to impact children by helping them stay in school we hope to transition homeless to employment and life off the streets. We proudly sponsor, The Popeye Toy Run which has been an important part of different communities providing meals and toys to thousands of low income and below poverty level children. In a collaborative effort with local communities centers and numerous motorcycle clubs across Southern California. Provide opportunities for participants to engage in linking participants to mentors or “buddies” where possible and appropriate. Sponsor, host and/or participate in events & activities that will assist with food drives, school supplies, toy drives that will promote and assist United States Veterans, poor, and homeless.
