GPS donates at least 5% of every purchase to amazing organizations.
GPS founder, Grant McNamara, has been working with, and doing exceptional work for, charities and nonprofit organizations since he was young. From Chairing American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life throughout high school, to founding Students Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations (providing pro bono, student-led consulting services for nonprofits) at the University of Illinois, and running marathons to fundraise for Open Heart Magic (changing lives by performing bedside magic for critically ill children in hospitals), giving back is Grant’s nature. GPS is no different.
Below are the organizations we are supporting in 2019.
Union League Boys & Girls Clubs
The Union League Boys & Girls Clubs strives to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. We currently serve more than 14,000 enrolled members between the ages of 6 and 18 at 10 locations. Each day, more than 1,600 youth take part in programming focused on academic success, healthy lifestyles and good character and citizenship.
Open Heart Magic
Hospital Bedside Magic®: Helping all sick kids get their magic back.
Their Hospital Bedside Magic programs bring laughter, hope and strength to sick children, one-on-one, at their hospital bedsides. Their volunteer Hospital Magicians are trained to work with all kids in a hospital — regardless of their medical conditions or physical abilities — so that every child can benefit from this entertaining and empowering therapy.
