Donate Melanin

Homegoing Fund

Melanin Medics is a charitable organisation and we receive no state funding. We currently rely on donations from our audience to run our schemes and events. As with any organisation, we want to provide the best experience possible for those we support and reach out to and to do this we need the support of external parties. Melanin Globe Foundation operates on philanthropic contributions from organizations and people like you. Your donations help us expand and provide support where it is needed most.

Events

We look to work closely with healthcare trusts, educational providers and organisations who share our mission and vision. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve shifted our monthly gatherings to meeting online instead of in person. And, as a way of trying to embody generosity of heart, we have temporarily halted charging the normal rate for these gatherings while we’re online. In traditional mindfulness and meditation circles, the word dana is used, which comes from the Sanskrit and Pali word for generosity. For these intents and purposes, dana means that you can pay whatever is on your heart to pay, and you will not be turned away if you can’t offer something, or if it’s not on your heart to.

Our MM Experiences take our participants throughout the nations of Benin, Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire — where the majority of enslaved Africans originated. For over 400 years, European colonizers enacted a vast and terrible genocide on the people of Africa. During centuries of exploitation, millions of African men, women, and children were ripped from their homes and forcibly taken to foreign lands. Their descendants faced fear, torture, pain and death in this new land, a land we can never truly call our home. Today we still feel the ripples of these terrible actions, as the systems of bondage have evolved and changed while keeping their singular goal of oppressing our people. Despite this, we have persevered, and we will overcome.
