Matthew Persky has always been interested in uplifting sustainable communities. Since he was little, he has visited under-resourced areas around the world and became interested in improving access to economic resources. He believes that self-care, confidence, and health are fundamental foundations for education and employment. At age 11, he built a full-scale wooden shelter for the unhoused and filmed an educational video to spread awareness about poverty. Later, he founded a nonprofit, The Equality Collective, to empower people by addressing inequalities in housing, health, and education, which often lead to inequalities in employment, income, and access to opportunities.
Glow to Go is one of the initiatives of The Equality Collective to provide resources to underserved communities worldwide, promoting equality and climate action. Matthew believes that everybody, regardless of their differences, should have an equal chance and opportunity to succeed and achieve their dreams.
As a child of an immigrant, Daniel Persky visited Latin America and Southeast Asia, where he empathized with underserved youth who had few resources to survive, let alone thrive. Daniel founded The Equality Collective, which has various initiatives that champion equality and sustainability. The initiatives all work together to promote diversity, equality, and inclusion in education, exercise, health, and fitness, so that individuals in under-resourced communities can achieve optimal performance and enjoy greater access to career opportunities and higher quality of life.
