Macon A Difference connects charitable organizations in need with Open Your Heart, a non-profit charity that tirelessly advocates for various social causes. Through connection, organization and fundraising, our partnership ultimately creates opportunity for further grant initiatives for all of the causes we assist. This strategy not only assures our community’s donations are used appropriately, it also empowers donors to hand-pick specific initiatives to support!

Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

– Barack Obama

Macon A Difference, along with our trusted partner Open Your Heart, is sincerely dedicated to providing relief to those who need it most. Tackling problems in the wake of George Floyd’s horrendous death and the ensuing trauma to the Twin Cities requires long-term, consistent effort.

Today, our passion has aligned us with a number of partner organizations who fervidly advocate for a number of causes. In addition to serving as a sustainable funding source for continuous aid in the Twin Cities, MAD serves as a liaison between donors and opportunities to give back.

Over the coming months, MAD will continue to align several partner organizations with OYH, ultimately creating opportunity for further grant initiatives. Why have we structured our relief strategy like this? It gives donors assurance that any support will be used appropriately AND towards whichever cause they choose.

Any support our donors give will be used appropriately AND towards whichever cause they choose.

To date we’ve connected with a number of service providers who have generously committed to donate services and/or dollars to our efforts. From pro-bono legal representation, to mortgage/loan assistance, to merchandise, MAD has connected the dots to strategically and sustainably create change in our beloved cities.

Please keep an eye out for further updates regarding our efforts to align passionate, justice-seeking organizations to provide assistance to those in need. Long-term viability is of utmost importance to us at MAD–a band-aid approach cannot provide that–and we look forward to continuing our work with the Twin Cities communities!

All donations towards MAD are processed through OYH and allocated to specific grant initiatives.
