The Rebels Den believes in supporting causes that make a difference in the world and in local communities.

We are committed to conducting business in socially responsible and ethical manners. We recognize our responsibility to contribute positively and fully believe in giving back.

Since we are just at the beginning of our journey we don’t have any fancy and awesome reports to give yet but we are going to highlight non-profits through blog posts in raising awareness for different causes around the world. 

You can’t walk around with blinders on

You can’t walk around with blinders on

You can't walk around with blinders on and ignore the fact that Black People have been discriminated against since forever. It is time that we truly listen to their experiences and become active in our anti-racism work. We’ve been having the hard uncomfortable yet...

Joey Bevins – Rocking for Recovery

Joey Bevins – Rocking for Recovery

Hi, I’m Joey Bevins and I am a person in recovery from substance use disorder. My clean date is 10/5/3015 and I haven’t found it necessary to have a drink or drug since that day over four years ago. I was at a real all-time low before getting clean.  Everyone...

Music is healing when you have PTSD

Music is healing when you have PTSD

There's no question that music is healing and incredibly powerful. It can and often does express what you're feeling when you are finding it difficult to say it with your own words. I recently learned about Guitar's 4 Vets - an organization whose "mission to share the...

1st Annual Rocking for Recovery Event

1st Annual Rocking for Recovery Event

I recently had a brief chat about being involved with the 1st Annual Rocking for Recovery Event. While we haven't quite hashed out the details just yet, I thought I would share a snippet of my story and then tell you about the event! My father was an alcoholic. He...

Mason’s Toy Box

Mason's Toy Box started when a young man named Mason, lost his battle to rare childhood cancer in 2011. The truth is that not all children will be home for the holiday season, as my family as experienced in 2008 as my son was fighting for his life after his liver...

Rise Above + SAVE at Exit 111

Rise Above + SAVE at Exit 111

When I attended Exit 111 back in October, one thing was incredibly clear: Rise Above + SAVE - a suicide prevention message that needs addressing perhaps now more than ever. I'm a fan of people using their platform for what they believe in - we may not always agree -...

Draw Buckets

Draw Buckets

This past week or two I came across DRAW - a non-profit that was founded on the premise that a single event of a natural disaster can bring a person to instant rock bottom. How many times have you watched the news to see a community be drowning in the waters from the...

Chugfest at Ix Art Park in Charlottesville

The first Annual CHUGFEST is happening at IX Art Park on Sunday, October 20th from 1-8 PM! And while I normally feature non-profits, this still falls under the category of what I am trying to highlight on the blog. So what exactly is CHUGFEST? This is an all-day rock,...

To write love on her arms

To write love on her arms

It seems that a lot of us are impacted by suicide in some kind of a way. Even I at one point thought I'd be better off dead than alive to rid myself to the pain I felt every single day. I don't know how I came across "To write love on her arms" but I made a note to...

Cancer Sucks

Cancer Sucks

You don't ever truly believe that cancer is going to impact you and then you pause for a moment and realize that it's more in your face than you want to admit. My former mother-in-law passed away from cancer just a few years ago. A friend committed suicide after she...

The Scars Foundation – Godsmack

The Scars Foundation – Godsmack

It's mental health awareness month - although I believe that should really be every day. Today I am shining the spotlight on The Scars Foundation. On my current playlist is Under your Scars by Godsmack - and how fitting that they founded The Scars Foundation. Our...

National Alliance on Mental Illness

National Alliance on Mental Illness

My own career choices have led me down the path of helping people to the point I went to college to earn my Masters in Mental Health Counseling - and while I no longer work as a counselor/therapist - it is something I feel very strongly about. In my own life as...

Charlotteville Pride Community Network

Charlotteville Pride Community Network

It's Pride month and it's time for me to share about the Charlottesville Pride Community Network! But first I wanted to address that LGBTQ phobia is real and it still exists even if the media doesn't share all the crimes that are happening. Just in recent news, a...

A camp for kids with extra needs

A camp for kids with extra needs

Being a parent can and often is challenging enough in my experiences and when becoming and being a parent of a child with extra needs it becomes a completely different beast. Especially if those extra needs are related to anything medical and could mean the difference...

May is Foster Care Awareness Month

May is Foster Care Awareness Month

I make no secret about the part that I grew up in Foster Care. I have been to 2 group homes and one family between the ages of 2 and 16 - with different degrees of emotional trauma that I experienced mostly in the foster family but also outside of it from family and...

Jaba – Living Better.Longer.

Jaba – Living Better.Longer.

The other day, a Jaba had their volunteer awards ceremony. It was an honor but also humbling to receive an award for the workshops I co-lead. I think that when you are passionate about something that you are willing to do it for free - at least to some extent anyway....

April is National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month

My family has been personally impacted by Organ Donation and without it, my youngest son would probably not have survived his genetic disorder. When he was born we didn't know he had Urea Cycle Disorder - that is something he was diagnosed with at the age of 4. And...

Autism Awarness ​​​Day and Month

Autism Awarness ​​​Day and Month

Today is Autism Awareness Day but in my family this is every day. But April as a whole is Autism Awareness Month. I've pretty much known most of my kiddo's life that he falls on the spectrum but because his genetic disorder took precedence and some of the behaviors...

Developmental Disability Awareness

American Diabetes Association Alert Day

American Diabetes Association Alert Day on March 26, 2019. I would like to write that I or my family aren't impacted by Diabetes but alas it's in my face every single day. A few years ago, my partner was diagnosed with Type 2 but last year they changed his...

Rare Disease Day is February 28

Rare Disease Day is February 28

There isn't a parent I met that said: I want a child with a rare disease. And yet the reality is that people are born and/or develop a rare disease. I have given birth to three children incredibly healthy and it never dawned on me that my youngest would be born with a...

Non-Profit Featured Article

Non-Profit Featured Article

Every month we are sharing a special feature about a Nonprofit that is making a difference in the world. Some of these will be in my own local community while other's will be miles away but deserve to be highlighted because of the change they are creating with their...

I’ll be transparent, I don’t know how much or how often we’ll contribute to each of these organizations. We are just getting started in our mission and we understand that business takes time to grow. But this is part of our mission and vision and a fundamental value we want to incorporate from day one.

The hope and the goal is to be able to share reports on a quarterly basis with our readers. Transparency and integrity are at the core of our business.

If there’s an organization you would like featured on our blog, please email us.  

If you work for a non-profit and think they feature is a good fit, please contact us.
