Helping vulnerable children worldwide.
Since 2011, 94% of all RetailROI donations have gone directly to grants to help orphans in need.

ROI has three goals: to (1) raise awareness for the enormous needs of orphans worldwide; (2) encourage our partners to help with organizational practices mindful of vulnerable orphans; and (3) provide resources to like-minded organizations for the aid of vulnerable orphans.
Close the mentoring gap. Become a mentor in real life.
1 out of every 3 kids will grow up without a mentor outside their family. We want to close that gap.
Our work is about making sure no young person has to walk the path to adulthood alone.
MENTOR is a national organization that works in collaboration with local Affiliates across the country to serve the mentoring field and young people nationwide. We host the only national database of mentoring programs to connect mentors with volunteer opportunities in their communities.
Using hair as a form of social justice.
Project Q provides haircuts, as well as the community, employment, health and emotional support to 700+ homeless and LGBTQ youth each year.
Project Q is a non-profit founded by Madin Lopez to help LGBTQ and homeless youth combat bullying, develop self-esteem, and find an identity for themselves through aesthetic.
Project Q uniquely harnesses the powerful relationship and sense of community found in the Barbershop to empower LGBTQ youth. Traveling shelter to shelter in a vintage Airstream, retrofit into a mobile gender affirming hair-salon, Project Q creates a safe space for these young people to find their identity and redefine their future.
