Rainn Wilson and the Mona Foundation

If you know me or if you've read through my Twitter or Blog bio you'd know that philanthropy and being involved in charity work is a huge part of my life. I firmly believe that if you are able to, its important to give back to the community in which you live. It's kind of like how John F. Kennedy once said, "And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." I feel that it is my duty and privilege to help those in need, to help increase the well-being of mankind and to promote positive human welfare. Among the various amazing organizations throughout the world, is the Mona Foundation,

Mona’s Mission

Mona Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting grassroots educational initiatives and raising the status of women and girls worldwide.

Mona Foundation serves its mission through development of human resources, promoting service learning and volunteerism, bridging the digital divide and supporting our adopted projects through financial grants and material resources that these projects need for their everyday operation or for their development plans.
The Mona Foundation has an upcoming event next month to benefit their cause, 

Rainn Wilson & Friends

A Benefit for Mona Foundation in Seattle

The Seattle Theater Group (STG) presents Rainn Wilson & Friends at The Moore Theater in Seattle on Saturday, October 23rd. Don’t miss this one of a kind show where Rainn will entertain and bring along a few surprise guests (keep checking back to find out who) to benefit Mona Foundation!

Mona Foundation will also be hosting an exclusive pre-show dinner and an exclusive after party with Rainn and cast from the show.  See details below, tickets are sold seperately through STG.
Pre-show dinner:
