This month we’ve partnered with a 2-year old startup, Modify Watches (www.modifywatches.com), an innovative watch brand that sells fun, colorful mix-and-match timepieces that have inspired an avid social media following.
Modify has created the “Together” watch (check out the link below) to help raise funds and awareness for their favorite non-profits. Each month, Modify supports a different non-profit through sales of the limited-edition watch face. The face retails for $30 (additional straps are an additional $15 or $20), and for each sale $20 will be given to the non-profit partner (US!).
Check them out and support our cause!
Revive The Dream Institute was one of three inaugural winners of the Siebel Impact Award! RTD won a $50K grant to help the initial development of the non-profit. See the link below for more information.
