In 2016 two of us stood on the top of a mountain in Puerto Rico and realized we were perhaps at the pinnacle of our personal happiness; riding hidden trails, enjoying an unfamiliar culture, and just accidentally living our best lives.
The thought that immediately followed for both of us was that we weren’t giving much back to the communities we seemed to enjoy most and gave us so much of that happiness.
So the Mutt Society was born. Initially to support the broader community, it evolved to focus on the youth after our first official initiative after Hurricane Maria. In our exploration of what we could do to help, someone now ‘famously’ said, “If you are going to invest in the future, invest in the youth.”
And here we are. Just trying to figure out more ways to leave a legacy of charitable attitude in this crazy world.
The following is just a loose visual of how we break things up. As we get more resources, these things will be managed on a more granular level and updated much more frequently. Still cool to see though, right?
