With an estimated 25,000 homeless residents in Los Angeles, homelessness in LA has increased 12 percent in two years.
To help make a difference this holiday season, the Upward Bound House, a Santa Monica-based social service agency is partnering with Santa Monica-based company Beachbody to further eliminate homelessness among families with children in Los Angeles.
On Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, Beachbody is announcing that it will donate $5 to Upward Bound House for every The Master’s Hammer and Chisel program that is purchased throughout the month of December up to $500,000.
This gift will go toward providing more than one hundred Santa Monica families, inclusive of approximately 250 children, with housing and services for an entire year.
The Master’s Hammer and Chisel is Beachbody’s newest strength training program, developed in collaboration with Autumn Calabrese from 21 Day Fix and Sagi Kalev from Body Beast. People can support this partnership and help this local organization by purchasing the program via TeamBeachbody.com beginning Dec. 2.
