It's September! We'll be featuring the artwork from one of verynice's volunteers each month. The prompt was to pick a holiday(s) that inspire us to give back. This month we feature the work of verynice Founder, Matthew Manos! Download our wallpaper and celebrate the spirit of giving back with us.

Why I Give Back
Every year in the United States alone, nonprofits will spend billions on service providers like me. Imposing a full market rate upon someone who has an end goal to better the world, in my mind, is immoral. These are not people who take big bonuses. Every dollar that a nonprofit saves has the potential to be invested back into the cause itself, and that is such an inspiring thing. Because most designers and consultants are not "boots on the ground" change-makers, but instead facilitators of impact from afar, a pro bono commitment is one of the most direct ways that our work can create change in the world. It's also really fun.
