Review for Cristian Rivera Foundation, Edgewater, NJ, USA
I have been working as a Part-Time Director for the Cristian Rivera Foundation and am blown away by the dedication and potential of this organization. This foundation is unique in its commitment to providing personal support to DIPG families and its ability to reach a wide, diverse audience in spreading awareness about DIPG. Celebrities, doctors, families, and people from the local community of many different cultures come together for the important cause of potentially saving children's lives. The Cristian Rivera Foundation also produces fundraising events like no other organization through a variety of different platforms including its stunning celebrity gala, NYFW runway shows, 5Ks, boat rides, and even small dinner parties held by board members. We also find creative ways to educate others about DIPG through our website, social media, email blasts, obtaining press, and appearing on local news - anything that can be done so that the world can learn about this terrible disease. In addition, every single penny matters to CRF and is not taken for granted in raising money for DIPG research - we're always thinking of ways big and small to make more money for our cause. I'm proud to say that transparency is key to this organization and something that we strive for in even the smallest of matters. Being a part of the Cristian Rivera Foundation has been an exciting, fulfilling, and life-giving journey so far, I can't wait to see what progress we can continue to make in the future!
