Stephen Curry, Ayesha Curry, and their oldest daughter, Riley Curry, are on the promotion trail to spread the word about their new charity, which is called “Eat. Learn. Play.” Ayesha shared pictures from her and Stephen’s recent talk at a Salesforce event held at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.
“@stephencurry30 and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to speak about all things @eatlearnplay last week at the Commonwealth Club,” Ayesha told her Instagram fans. “Thank you @salesforce for having us,” the celebrity mom added.
Ayesha told her social media fans that the event was made extra special by her daughter’s presence. “[The] icing on the cake was having Riley listen and understand more about our family’s mission,” Mrs. Curry said.
“Eat. Learn. Play.” is a nonprofit organization founded by Ayesha and Stephen Curry for the central purpose of helping children. “We launched ‘Eat. Learn. Play.’ because we see the tremendous need that exists all around us and want to do what we can to help improve the lives of kids and families in Oakland, the Bay Area, and across the country,” Ayesha shared on the charity’s website.
“Rooted in three of the most vital pillars for a healthy childhood— nutrition, education, and physical activity— ‘Eat. Learn. Play.’ is designed to help ensure an equal road to success for all kids,” the celebrity mom said.
“Eat. Learn. Play.” is rather new to the public. The organization, however, has been in the making for many years.
“Stephen and I have wanted to form our own nonprofit for a while, but we waited until we had the time and focus to make it successful,” Ayesha said during a recent interview with Entrepreneur. “Our kids are all born, so we’re ready to do this,” Mrs. Curry added.
The celebrity mom further explained, “The goal [of ‘Eat. Learn. Play.’] is to make sure every child has access to food, a great education, and safe spaces to play. Our model is really simple: We serve as a platform to bring other organizations together and amplify those missions.”
“We’re starting here in Oakland because that’s where we see the most need personally, and because we want to crawl before we walk. This past summer, we were able to fund every single town camp in Oakland, so no child was turned away. That checked all three boxes. Hopefully, by July 2020, we’ll start to expand.”
