I did some research on this charity organization. Not only has it been around since 1989 and there are two branches - one in Alabama, the other in New York, but a number of celebrities, including George Clooney, Eva Mendes, Common and Lena Waithe, have one way or another been involved with it. EJI was also one of the several organizations that J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot donated millions of dollars to. And Bryan Stevenson, the man who founded the company, was the executed producer of a movie called Just Mercy, which was based on his memoir and starred Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Tim Blake Nelson and Brie Larson. So yeah this company seems pretty legit.

I felt like doing this, mainly because...why not?
