We are all faced with some measure of discomfort during the COVID-19 pandemic, but here in the Atlanta area the food service industry workers have been hit especially hard.  Restaurants and Bars have been either closed or limited to take-out service only, putting many out of work and under stress due to no fault of their own.


Fortunately there is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to food service workers who are faced with an illness, injury or have expenses related to the death of an immediate family member and vital resources to those who have suddenly found themselves unemployed. The Giving Kitchen’s promise to the food service community in Georgia is: Stability. They fulfill that promise through their vision of a food service community where crisis is met with compassion and care and where self-care is valued above all else.

To assist The Giving Kitchen in their mission, I will be donating 40% of the sale price of each “in-stock” razor or brush handle, in the name of the buyer, through May 31st.  Although tax law does not require documentation for gifts less than $250, you will receive a confirmation of your tax deductible donation directly from The Giving Kitchen (https://thegivingkitchen.org/).

Now would be a great time for you to consider a new brush or razor for yourself, or as a gift while also providing much needed support to those in need.

Although I do not plan to purchase a new razor or handle at this time, I applaud your charitable efforts.  Happy

My daughter has worked for charitable organizations for the past 16 years. These organizations took a hit when the federal income tax laws were changed so that only a few people have enough deductions to claim charitable contributions as deductions on their income tax forms.

With the current pandemic, many workers are furloughed meaning they no longer have funds above and beyond what they need to meet daily needs, so they are unable to contributing to charities until their job are restored. At the same time, there is a greater demand for charitable services to provide food, medical supplies, shelter, etc. to those affected by the pandemic.

Many of the food banks rely on food donation from restaurants and grocery stores to keep their shelves stocked. With the current crisis, these sources of food donations have dried up while the demand for food has increased with higher levels of unemployment.

Thus, I encourage anyone who still has adequate financial resources to meet their own needs to consider the needs of others during this time. Consider purchasing one of the Elite Razor handles that are truly works of art to contribute that way. Support your local food bank, Salvation army, Red Cross and other organizations that are desperately in need of funding at this time of great community need.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have made donations to The Giving Kitchen via Elite Razor.  Your support is very much appreciated.

Please remember that all of the donations are made on your behalf and you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation directly from The Giving Kitchen.

Thanks again for your support of this very worthwhile cause, particularly in light of the extension of the "shelter in place" request and the impact it will continue to have on the restaurant and bar industry.
