Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021

November 30th is Giving Tuesday, a global day of philanthropy to support the causes close to your heart.

As one of PBNM’s loyal supporters, you have received our newsletters and attended our community events. Because of your involvement with PBNM, I’m personally reaching out to you and a few others today—before Giving Tuesday. Because you care so deeply about the benefits of Whole Food Plant-Based living, I want you to be a part of our Giving Tuesday Campaign to ensure that our most vulnerable populations continue to hear the message. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by midnight November 30. Will you help us get started? 

Your donations help PBNM grow its ability to reach the people hardest hit by illnesses that put them at the highest risk for the worst outcomes from fast onset illnesses like flu and pandemics, to chronic diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and high blood pressure. That reach with culturally competent presentations can make a tremendous difference for those who otherwise would not have access to this lifesaving information.

Any amount that you contribute will help PBNM uplift communities in need.


Your support keeps us in these communities doing this great work. In the past 12 months, we have produced and delivered two educational programs specifically created for people of color, collected close to 1500 lbs of healthy food donations for hard-hit soup kitchens and shelters in the Chicagoland area, as well as created two online groups for diet transition, education, and support. And more is on the horizon! That’s why we need your help to continue our momentum.  So please make a tax-deductible donation now to support our work for people who need it most. 

Please make a gift now to our Giving Tuesday Campaign.
 By giving today, you will help us continue the work that makes a difference now and tomorrow!

Thank you so very much,


All the Best,
