Support MIND this Holiday Season: AmazonSmile, Cyber Monday, and #GivingTuesday

Gratitude and giving are two of my most favorite things. This is why the holidays are one of my favorite times of year because they’re a great reminder of all the things to be grateful for and it’s the season of giving.

I'm so grateful to work for an amazing non-profit organization, MIND Research Institute, whose mission is to ensure that all students are mathematically equipped to solve the world's most challenging problems. 

JiJi and Students at MIND

As a way to express my gratitude for all the amazing work the organization has been doing over the course of its 20+ year history to transform education and close the experience gap for all learners, I’d like to invite everyone to join me in supporting MIND this holiday season.

This includes my colleagues, MIND donors and supporters, our ST Math teachers and parents, and everyone who cares about the future of STEM.

Three ways you can support MIND this holiday season are:

  1. Through your holiday shopping via AmazonSmile
  2. Your JiJi Store purchases on Cyber Monday
  3. By giving a donation on #GivingTuesday

Shop AmazonSmile to Give Back to MIND

Did you know that you can support MIND through your Amazon purchases? By shopping on the AmazonSmile site ( and selecting “MIND Research Institute” as your beneficiary, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to MIND. How amazing is that!

It’s A Win-Win for All This Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday is known as one of the biggest online shopping holidays of the year. To celebrate and show our gratitude to the MIND community, MIND will be having a Cyber Monday sale on all JiJi Store items.

Mark your calendars for Monday, December 2nd as this deal is only good for this day! You can also rest easy knowing that purchases made at the MIND Marketplace help fund our mission. I call this a win-win!

Make a Donation to MIND on #GivingTuesday

As a nonprofit, neuroscience, social impact organization, MIND depends on the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations to achieve the mission and help advance opportunities for all students.

This year I ask that you consider donating to MIND on #GivingTuesday. This year, Giving Tuesday is on December 3, 2019. Any donation, no matter how big or small is appreciated. You can feel good knowing that 88% of MIND’s funding goes directly to programming for students, teachers, and families

When 70% of students exiting K-12 education are not proficient in math, it crucial that we provide all students with the necessary skills needed to gain deep conceptual understanding in math for future success in STEM.

On behalf of everyone at MIND, I would like to say thank you and happy holidays!
