We at the Green Bean Conspiracy believe it is important to give back to the community and to the world. We also understand that not everyone has the same "cause". What is important is finding what matters most to you and supporting that cause. These are just some of the organizations we support. If you have the ability, how about you throw a few sheckles their way? We'd greatly appreciate it.

Education is the foundation of everything our society is built on and I believe in supporting those who educate. My mom is a retired teacher, my sister is a teacher, and Rizzo is a teacher. I graduated from Loudoun County Public Schools and I'm proud to serve on the Board of the Loudoun Education Foundation. LEF celebrates and supports the education in Loudoun County, Virginia through classroom grants, the Excellence in Education Banquet, the Outstanding Teachers Banquet, and other wonderful programs..

Rizzo has been walking in Avon 39: The Walk to End Breast Cancer since 2008 to honor her Mom and her Aunt. Avon 39 helps fund research, awareness, and education while providing assistance for families currently battling breast cancer. Avon 39 also supplies much-needed screenings and treatment to detect breast cancer early and stop it in its tracks. In 2016, Rizzo will be walking her ninth Avon walk in her ninth city in Boston.

Rizzo and I have been season ticket holders at NextStop Theatre Company since 2012 and plan to continue to support our local theater. However, ticket sales are only a small part of how NextStop continues to provide quality shows at low prices. NextStop also receives support through tax deductible donations. Go ahead, give them a few bucks and make sure to come out to the next show at NextStop.
