Since November, Ricky has lead the “One Month One Cause” campaign, which hopes to promote social action by shedding light onto local social action entity in Utah. The campaign consists of inviting these entities to a Jazz game throughout one month.
As such, these collectives were given a space and audience so share their work with Jazz fans in November.
The recent launch of The Ricky Rubio Foundation has helped reinforce these social efforts by which Ricky Rubio hope to increase his social footprint. That campaign started October 22nd with Volunteers of America – Utah, which provides a bridge to self-reliance and health for vulnerable individuals and populations who struggle with homelessness, addiction and mental illness in our Wasatch Front communities.
Ricky Rubio convinced that volunteerism is a necessary element to construct a just and democratic society with an active citizenship supports this initiative through his foundation.
The campaign objective are to spread the values of solidarity, support social action, shed light on these social entity of Utah, and bring awareness to different social questions.
The Ricky Rubio Foundation supports this action by distributing 40 tickets to each association, whose member can share some time with Ricky Rubio after the game.
Ricky Rubio will continue the ripple effect by sharing these stories on his social media and visiting the offices of these organizations. Finally, a year-end gala is being evaluated as a means to raise funds.
