Half Moon Bay beach clean up

For the DoubleShot Creative team, giving back is something we like to do whenever we can. From multiple volunteering events throughout the year, to local and global donations, as well as participating in Back to School Supplies and Holiday Toy Drives, we do as much as we can to give back to our community near and far.

This year, we volunteered at Habitat for Humanity Sonoma County, helping build new housing for those displaced by the fires. We also spent a day on the beach in Half Moon Bay, picking up trash along the coastline.

And at the end of every year, we like make extra donations to a few of our favorite charities. Last year, we donated to Safe and Sound and Project Night.

This year, we want to do the same thing, but with your help. We’ve chosen four incredible charities, and we’d love for you to vote on where you’d like DoubleShot Creative to send an extra donation this year. To learn more about them, view the brief descriptions below or visit their websites!

Ocean Conservancy

The Ocean Conservancy is a movement to protect our ocean. They work to remove trash from our seas, preserve and protect fish populations, and so much more. By donating, you can empower them to create even more science-based solutions that promote a healthy ocean.

Global Fund for Women

The Global Fund for Women is an organization that empowers women’s human rights movements on a global scale. They work to provide women with sexual and reproductive health, freedom from violence, economic justice, and leadership. By donating, you can help them create a more beautiful future for women and girls.

Guide Dogs for the Blind

Guide Dogs for the Blind is a beautiful organization that provides a full education to guide dogs, plus additional help for their owners. Their services are entirely free of charge, and instead fully supported by donors and volunteers. By donating, you’ll be making their incredible work possible.

Second Harvest Food Bank

Second Harvest Food Bank has a mission to provide healthy meals to all who need them. In fact, 1 in 10 people in Silicon Valley get their food from Second Harvest. By donating, you’ll be supporting their vision of creating a hunger-free community.

After you vote, let us know in the comments how you like to give back to your community.

Happy Holidays from DoubleShot Creative, and wishing you a beautiful new year!
