How we Give Back

$13,772.97+ given to causes fighting for affordable housing. Why?

As a social benefit company, we care about the New Orleans community and the effort made to provide affordable housing to those without means.

That’s why the tour will give back by donating a portion of the proceeds to a local affordable housing charity, LifeWorks Austin. LifeWorks is a fearless advocate for youth and families seeking their path to self-sufficiency.  Every year, LifeWorks provides housing, counseling, and workforce/education opportunities to 4,000 youth and families, many of whom are facing life’s most difficult challenges. They are committed, along with many community partners, to ending youth homelessness in Austin by 2020.

To learn more about LifeWorks and how to become involved in their mission, please visit their website at www.lifeworksaustin.org.

 

 

As a company  we care about people, the planet and profit. And we know that’s not that weird. Austin, our hometown, is an expensive place to live. As is Houston and NOLA. And increasingly the amazing, creative, artistic folks that live in our homes can’t afford them. We want to fight that battle and change the notion of what affordable housing looks like. So each tour we do we give 10% towards affordable housing nonprofits in the cities we are in. We think it would be weird NOT to give back to our community. Previous years’ partners include:

Foundation Communities

New Hope Housing in Houston

Avenue CDC

Caritas of Austin

Houston Mayor’s Fund

HousingNOLA

When you join us by paying a ticket, you can know you are making Austin, Houston and New Orleans just a little better!
