Chill Burlington was started in 1997, a non-profit charity fundraiser that helps provide for the Vermont youths who are under-served or at-risk. Of course, the Chill Organization spreads across many other cities in the States as well as into Australia, Canada and Japan. It’s based on sports: starting with skiing and snowboarding, but I was introduced due to running.
Not only a noble cause, but the foundation is represented in a lot of places–as long as you’re looking. Plus, all of the proceeds stay near to the city it was pledged to instead of being shipped around. Maybe it’s because I’m a Vermonter, maybe it’s because I’ve known some kids growing up there who have a rough start, especially when it comes to education, but I believe this is a worthy cause and hope that by passing the word along, more people can get involved. If not in this, then in other organizations similar to it.
