Charitable giving has been a part of Andrew Leigh’s life since well before he was born. For most of his life, his father, Jerry Leigh, lived by the motto “give with a warm hand,” and was always looking to make a difference in the lives of those who needed it during his time on earth. Jerry instilled this philosophy within Andrew, who continues to live and operate the Jerry Leigh of California business with his father’s vision in place.
A History of Giving
Both Andrew Leigh and his father, Jerry Leigh, have always been committed to using their business as a catalyst for change, especially in ways that can positively impact the lives of children in their community and around the globe. Currently, they’re working with a few different causes to make a difference, including:
Breast Cancer Awareness
- In order to raise awareness for breast cancer, Jerry Leigh participates in various events, including supporting the Keep a Breast Foundation with the Dickies Girl at employee events and on the Vans Warped Tour.
LOLLIPOP Theater Network
- Andrew Leigh sits on the board of directors for the non-profit organization LOLLIPOP Theater Network, whose mission is to bring all the magic of watching a movie in the theater to children across the nation who are confined to hospitals, whether due to life-threatening or chronic illnesses and thus unable to have the experience of going to the movies with friends. Alongside his board position, Andrew is also a contributor to the foundation.
While Andrew Leigh knows that not everyone has the capacity to give in the kind of volume that he and his business have had over the years, but he is a firm believer that anyone can make a difference no matter how much you can afford to donate. You don’t need to be rich to help people; you just have to make a change and do something for someone else.
At his core, Andrew Leigh loves the different charity involvement he gets to be a part of personally and through the Jerry Leigh business with different organizations because he loves the opportunity to help teach the next generation. Through the work he does, Andrew has a chance to mentor and interact with those who need support, and by helping them find ways to get on the right path, he’s truly able to see the difference he’s making.
