THE CHARITIES

Established in 1987, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.

AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health by engaging in the following core strategies:

> Funding scientific research
> Educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention
> Advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention
> Supporting survivors of suicide loss and those affected by suicide

Eyeshine is a Public Charity founded by concerned parents, teachers, students, and dedicated community members to address the critical need for outdoor recreational and educational support of children and adults who are blind, visually impaired and disabled. Their programs are designed to engage children and their families and encourage them to give back to their communities.

Eyeshine dreams of creating a better world for people with vision loss and other disabilities so that when their students participate in Eyeshine’s recreational and educational activities they learn how to acquire the skills and independence to share their talents and shine in the community.

HalfCut is a social movement that engages people of all cultures, ages and sexes to raise awareness and raise funds for forest conservation & regeneration.

The goal of HalfCut is to be the face for the environmental movement. By encouraging women, men and children to wear their HalfCut look to help save the last remaining 50% forests globally and start the regeneration of what we have lost. HalfCut aims to protect crucial forests for habitat for threatened and endangered species, protect Traditional Owners land titles, start mass tree planting projects and ultimately be part of the solution to the growing climate emergency, ensuring a safe future for all species on Earth.

THE SHARK

Ronald S. Cohen, Ph.D.

Ronald Cohen served as the President and Chief Executive Officer of United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties for 35 years before retiring in 2019. Under his leadership, the organization grew from a $5 million single non-profit corporation into a $55 million operation with 26 subsidiaries. Cohen orchestrated and led the acquisition and merger of 5 similar companies into the UCP family of organizations and established UCP Wheels for Humanity, an international organization with field offices in Indonesia, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Ukraine and a wheelchair hub in China, manufacturing wheelchairs and distributing them to poor disabled children and adults around the world.

Prior to the President and CEO position, Cohen was the Clinical Director at UCP and established the first community-based group homes for developmentally disabled children with behavioral disorders in the state of California. Under his leadership, UCP developed 33 fully accessible rent subsidized community homes and apartments throughout Southern California.

Cohen is widely regarded as an expert on developing housing for special needs populations. He has testified before the U.S. Congress and the California State Legislature on community housing models and the efficacy of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Cohen was a member of the California Senate Select Committee on Autism and Related Disorders and was the Chair of the Southern California Housing Committee. He also served on Health and Human Services Secretary Diana Dooley’s Developmental Services Task Force to examine the developmental disability system regarding healthcare, housing and employment.

Cohen began his career exploring the concept of alternatives to institutionalization. In the early 1970’s, he co-founded Intermountain Youth Center in Tucson, Arizona, and along with colleagues from the University of Kansas, pioneered the use of Applied Behavioral Analysis in home like settings for the treatment of adjudicated youth and individuals with developmental disabilities.

EVENT SPONSORS

A big thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible!

MEET THE 10x10LA PROJECT COMMITTEE

10×10 LA is powered by a group of young professionals who have volunteered their time and resources to launch a crowdfunding event to support charities doing compelling community work.

10×10 connects volunteers at a local community level and together they produce live crowdfunding ‘Shark Tank’ style events which are attended by 100+ people. Each committee identifies three grassroots charities and invites them to pitch for funds from the event audience.

The event is supported by 10×10 – a predominantly volunteer run organisation working to empower a new generation of passionate philanthropists and create a sustainable movement for grassroots giving.
