At Shepard Moon, we believe in being helpful and healing in all we do. When we began in 1999, we supported artists and musicians by providing flexible employment opportunities so they could “pay the bills” while creating the freedom they needed to express their talent out in the world.
What is near and dear to our hearts today is to help break the cycle of poverty, abuse and hopelessness through helping women and children. We believe that by supporting organizations create a shift in this area, we can help effect lasting social change for future generations. With this in mind, we are very honored to help support these wonderful organizations:
