Wish you could do more to help people in TX, FL, Puerto Rico and other families throughout the Caribbean on their path to disaster recovery? With help from our partners, we found a way for all of us to give.

 

With One Brick and SBP as “Reviews for Relief” charity project partners, kununu pledges to donate $10 for every review collected between October 18th to November 8th at this link:

Why disaster relief?

It’s been an extremely tough recent couple of months for communities around the world due to what feels like an endless string of natural disasters. In fact, September 2017 was the most active month on record for Atlantic Hurricanes.

From Harvey, Irma, Maria, and less in the news but still relevant, Jose, Katia, and Tropical Storm Lee, there has indeed been an increase not in absolute numbers of hurricanes, but in the percentage of category 4 and 5 storms. Locations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Florida and Puerto Rico have all sustained massive impact.

This “Reviews for Relief” campaign is our way of helping with not just our wallets, but also with our voices. If you have one, you can help too!

 

Joining forces

             
For this “Reviews for Relief” campaign, kununu joins forces with
One Brick, a national volunteer organization with Chapters in Boston, NYC, DC, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley, and SBP, a national disaster resilience and recovery organization whose mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery.

With One Brick’s national community of socially-conscious volunteers, SBP’s proven commitment and leadership in disaster resilience and recovery, and kununu’s founding mission of being the voice for career-minded professionals who “give a damn” – we saw this as a perfect opportunity for our organizations to team up for a worthwhile cause that is very close to our hearts (and homes!).

 

What we’re pledging

Starting October 18, 2017 to November 8, 2017, for every review collected through this link kununu pledges to donate $10 to disaster relief and community support.

Distribution: All of the monetary proceeds will be made payable to the One Brick organization, of which 50% will be contributed directly to SBP.

SBP is a national disaster resilience and recovery organization whose mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery. Since its founding in 2006, following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, SBP has rebuilt homes for more than 1,300 families with the help of 180,000 volunteers in disaster-impacted communities across the country.

Thanks to volunteer groups like One Brick, disaster-impacted homeowners are able to have a prompt, efficient and predictable path home. More than 285 One Brick volunteers have served more than 3,000 volunteer hours with SBP, working on homes for people like Mr. and Mrs. Baham, a wheelchair-bound New Orleans couple who were living in their gutted, Katrina-damaged home. The Bahams were limited to just two rooms in their gutted house until SBP’s team and volunteers worked to rebuild their home. In addition to a new, healthy, wheelchair-accessible home, the Bahams were given back their dignity and were so grateful to the many “angels” who worked so hard to help them.
