OCTOBER-DECEMBER 2022: Garret Cares

During the months of October, November and December, 10% of proceeds will be donated to Garret Cares. Garret Cares is a non-profit memorial foundation based out of New Jersey in loving memory of Garret D. Christino. In August of 2020 the world lost a loving and undeniably caring soul, and the Garret Cares foundation has made it their mission to continue spreading his impact. Their mission is to make the world a better place by partnering with philanthropic organizations advocating for and advancing education, health, and providing essentials for underserved communities. Garret Cares offers scholarships, hosts school supply drives, and more.

"Reach Out More" has become their phrase of motivation. This was written on Garret’s to-do blackboard in his apartment during the summer of 2020 just after he graduated from college and just before he was to start his law school career.
