It's the holiday season and the Chive Charities team is buzzing. We're committed to doing as much charity work as possible during this holiday season. Since Chive Charities began we've had a running dialogue about burn victims, particularly children with 2nd and 3rd degree burns.

The physical scarring is often surpassed by the emotional scaring the burns cause. Our diligence process led us to a single place, The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. Started in 1971, the AARBF was the first to pioneer the now famous technique, 'Stop, drop, and Roll.' AARBF is as committed to preventing burns as they are to treating them. 

AARBF does one very cool thing each year that caught our attention. They invite 130 burn survivors ages 5-16 to a week-long Champ Camp in Wonder Valley, California.

Champ Camp is free to all burn survivors and is fully staffed by medical doctors, nurses, program staff, volunteers and counselors. This crew also includes adult burn survivors and firefighters. Activities at the camp include fishing, horseback riding, crafts, canoeing, archery, water slides, and team building activities. It provides a safe environment where burn survivors can play, learn, grow, gain self-esteem, and, most importantly, make new friends. 

We've met many burn survivors this year who have asked us to not only donate AARBF but to do so in a way that brings attention to their amazing cause. On behalf of theCHIVE community, Chive Charities would like to announce a $50,000 grant to the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. This grant will help send burn survivors to Champ Camp this year. We believe these young children need all the confidence the AARBF can instill in them and we're honored to be able to weigh in so heavily on this amazing cause. 

Read the entire story right here.

This is just the tip of the holiday charity iceberg, Chivers. Some of the most amazing and inspiring stories are right around the corner. We cannot wait to share them with y'all.

On November 2nd, we’ll be throwing the inaugural Chive Charities Green Gala right in the heart of downtown Austin at Speakeasy.  

It's going to be an incredible night and we are giving Chive Nation the chance to join Chive Charities' key contributors, recipients, and some of our favorite Chivettes of the Week at the private soiree.

Tickets cost $100 and will include entrance to the party, all the KCCO Black Lager you can drink, hors d'oeuvres and live entertainment featuring the Wheeler Brothers and Ben Kweller.  Limit two tickets per person.  

Come dressed to impress, as the attire is black or green tie or your favorite super hero costume.  We've tried to tell Mac that Peter Pan isn't a super hero, but he's having none of it. 

There will be plenty of surprises in store, so you won't want to miss this!

Tickets for the inaugural Chive Charities Green Gala are available RIGHT HERE!

On November 2nd, we’ll be throwing the 1st Annual Green Gala right in the heart of downtown Austin at Speakeasy.  

It’s going to be an epic event, with hundreds of key contributors to the Chive Fund flying in from all over the world to meet our Chive Charities recipients including Taylor Morris, the Steins, Zoe Lush, Dave Cosner and our latest recipient, Melissa Smith! Many of your favorite Chivettes of the Week will be there as well.

After watching Chive Nation come together last week to raise over $389,000 for Melissa, we’ve decided to open a very limited amount of tickets to this private soiree, Friday, Oct. 18th, at 10 am CT.  

Tickets cost $100 and will include entrance to the party, all the KCCO Black Lager you can drink, hors d'oeuvres and live entertainment featuring the Wheeler Brothers and Ben Kweller.  Limit two tickets per person. 

Green/Black tie formal wear or Superhero attire only. 

Also, we have a few major sponsorship opportunities still available – these sponsorships are for anyone in the country and not just local to Austin. If you want to support Chive Charities, hang with theCHIVE and theBERRY crew, and have access to the Chivette VIP Bowling Lanes (and trust us, you do), contact us at: events@chivecharities.org.
