New Jersey native, Springsteen fan, and ASU Sun Devil for life, Adam Lowy founded Move For Hunger in the summer of 2009. Adam’s family has owned a moving company in New Jersey for over 90 years (dating back to Great-Grandpa Lowy). After years of seeing so much food wasted when people move, Adam decided to take action.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths
To us, it’s hair. To women battling cancer, it’s hope.
We know how important the appearance of strong, healthy hair is. For women battling cancer, the appearance of strong, healthy hair is even more important. That’s why we created Pantene Beautiful Lengths, the only program to help women feel like themselves again with free, real-hair wigs. So when you donate 8 inches of hair or $8 dollars to the cause, you’re helping to make sure that happens.
More than 800,000 ponytails donated to date
Our goal is simple. We want to make it possible for women everywhere to share their hair with women who’ve lost theirs. It’s also why we’ve partnered with the American Cancer Society® to make and distribute the wigs.
Thanks to our partnership, we’ve donated 42,000 real-hair wigs to the national American Cancer Society Wig Bank, helping serve those in need every single day. To find out if you’re eligible to receive a free wig, or if there are wigs available in your area, please call the American Cancer Society’s Wig Bank Line at: 1.877.227.1596 or learn more online.

Every year an estimated 7 million pets enter shelters. Nearly 3 million never find homes. We can change that.
The goal of PetSmart Charities is to find a lifelong, loving home for every pet. We get closer every day with adoption events and centers, pet rescue programs and support for spay/neuter efforts.
Pet homelessness is a huge problem. At PetSmart Charities, we believe the solution is to get pets adopted and prevent unplanned litters.
So, we fund local animal welfare groups to address these two issues. Together, we’re working to end pet homelessness.
PetSmart Charities helps find forever homes for pets—to date, we’ve helped more than 6 million pets. That’s 1 out of every 10 Pet adoptions in North America.
What’s more, every story from PetSmart Charities’ adopters celebrates the love that pets bring to their families. That’s our real measure of success.
