At Nematic Gallery, giving back is at the core of our ethos, and for the grand opening, we are proud to support five exceptional non-profit organizations, each making a positive impact in their respective areas. By contributing at least 2.2% of our profits to these causes, we strive to create a meaningful and positive impact in our community.
One of the non-profits we are honored to collaborate with is the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Center in Carmel, which offers essential tools for finding inner peace and wellness. Through our partnership with the remarkable teacher, Lindsay Dyson, we wholeheartedly support this life-changing practice.
Additionally, we are delighted to support the work of Operation Underground Railroad (OUR), a non-profit organization dedicated to combating human trafficking and rescuing victims, particularly children, from sex slavery and exploitation. Their covert operations in collaboration with law enforcement agencies worldwide, along with providing aftercare and support to survivors, are vital in the fight against this heinous crime.
As part of our featured collections, Lindsey Ross's Mushroom People and Blakeney's Portals, shot in nature, we stand with Decriminalize Nature, a grassroots organization advocating for the decriminalization of psychedelic plants and fungi. Their mission to promote access to natural entheogens for spiritual, personal growth, and therapeutic use aligns with our belief in the positive potential of these substances.
Furthermore, we are honored to contribute to the Dream Machine Foundation, run by Charlie, which grants the dreams and wishes of terminally ill children. By partnering with hospitals and communities, they bring moments of joy and happiness to these brave children during challenging times.
Lastly, we support Mermans 'Mofaya' Mosengo and his Mofaya School of Music in the Congo. His inspiring journey and musical talent have touched the lives of millions around the world. With a focus on empowering the youth through music, Mofaya's school is making a significant impact in the Congo, providing hope and opportunities for a better future.
Through our commitment to giving back and fostering a strong sense of community, Nematic Gallery aims to be not just a space for captivating art installations, but also a platform for positive change. We look forward to continuing our collaborations with non-profit organizations and amplifying their invaluable missions to create a better world together.
