THE OYG MISSION

Our world is starving for positive news. And yet if we pause for a moment and look around we’ll see there are positive stories unfolding every day all around us.

OYG (Orange Ya Glad?) is a mantra and positive way of thinking – even in the toughest of times. We’ve developed OYG? to identify and lift up the folks in our communities that are going the extra mile to help those in need around them: the school girl making and distributing homemade hand sanitizer, the food bank workers collecting, preparing and delivering meals to the hungry, the garage-based engineers putting their 3D printers to work making PPE for the brave men and women on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. These are regular people putting their talents and resources to use, making a meaningful impact in a world that is hurting.

You wanna get involved?  Great - it’s super easy!  Just hit the NOMINATE A HERO button above and tell us about someone you know who is doing something awesome. 

We all know someone who is always going above and beyond – “Orange Ya Glad?” they are?

OYG?

A community is being supported by a former carpenter who has built dozens of desks for students struggling with remote learning amid the pandemic. Mitchell Couch, father of four and resident of California, was inspired by his own kids after they took over the kitchen table for remote learning. After building his children’s desks he noticed a big impact on their ability to focus.

Couch uploaded a video to Youtube teaching others how to make a DIY, low budget desk. A local grocery store contacted Couch, asking if he’d be interested in building desks for students in need if provided the materials. The rest is history. Couch has now crafted 40 desks and hopes to craft many more in the upcoming months.

Way to go, Mitchell! You are #TeamOYG through and through!

Eagle Jayagoda was inspired by the tiny libraries that have been popping up in communities in his home state of California, so he opened “Little Free Food Table” a few months ago. This was a miniature food pantry that was open on Sundays and provided food for people facing difficult times.

For his eighth birthday in August, he asked to upgrade his food table into a 24-hour food pantry. Eagle recycles bottles to raise money, with help from his community, to stock his pantry. Since launching, Eagle has been glad to see people taking items they need.

This isn’t the first good deed this third grader from San Francisco has done. He participated in sending a food truck to first responders and a homeless shelter with the Bay Area Sri Lankan community. Thank you, Eagle!
