The Community, Milwaukee, WI: Volunteers created in-depth reports involving life and career-related topics for formerly incarcerated people, with the aim of helping them re-enter the workforce. Topics include: digital literacy, credit scores, trucking, agriculture, universal design & accessibility, marketing, and real estate. The Community will continue building and updating this reference library moving forward.
Witness to Mass Incarceration, New York, NY: Volunteers created MAP, an e-commerce platform that showcases formerly incarcerated people's businesses throughout the world. In addition to adding 1,052 new businesses to MAP, Witness's volunteers interviewed over 60 previously incarcerated business owners to create profiles for each service and business owner, which covers their lives before, during, and after incarceration.
Lilipad, Berlin, Germany: Volunteers partnered with institutions in Uganda, Morocco, and Germany provide educational support to their communities with books and various learning resources. Nuria Rocabert Aragones, Community Manager at Lilipad, said, "With Expensify.org's financial support, we were able to attract motivated volunteers to help out with language lessons, homework, and organize creative and inspiring workshops. We also managed to open six new libraries in locations like Berlin and Paris."
In addition to supporting community campaigns, Expensify.org continues to support SNAP families directly with additional food assistance (since 2020), while also offering monetary incentives to individuals in marginalized communities to get their COVID vaccine (since 2021).
Expensify.org also donated over 400 clothing items and reusable water bottles to Food Not Bombs in San Francisco. The group is an all-volunteer movement that recovers food that would otherwise be discarded, and shares free vegan and vegetarian meals with the hungry in over 1,000 cities in 65 countries.
