We don’t want you to miss this bit of happy news. Karida Collins, hand-dyer extraordinaire and the businesswoman behind Baltimore’s Neighborhood Fiber Company for more than 10 years, was recognized this past week as a GoFundMe hero. You can watch their video profile of Karida up top.
Karida is one of those people who sees a need and takes action. Most recently, in June she started the NFC Momentum Fund at the Baltimore Community Foundation.
Here’s how Karida describes this donor-advised fund:
“The NFC Momentum Fund will be able to receive tax-deductible donations that will be dispersed to a variety of organizations working for justice, empowerment, and equality. At its heart, the Fund will allow me to focus our giving on the areas that need it most. Right now, we are raising money to support protestors in the Black Lives Matter movement. Last month, we donated money to a community organization that is feeding families in Baltimore that have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
We are proud to be a part of Karida’s community of customers, and now, donors. Barely a month old, the NFC Momentum Fund is closing in on $100,000 in donations. Please join us in supporting the NFC Momentum Fund in supporting organizations that work for justice. Let’s help the fund exceed $100K!
