In the video “Robin Hood 101,” internet puppets Fafa the Groundhog, Mario, and Johnny T of Glove and Boots bring the funny while promoting The Robin Hood Foundation, a charitable organization based out of New York City. The three puppets explain how Robin Hood continuously helps to fight poverty in New York City. In 2013, the organization raised more than $126 million to battle poverty and $56 million to aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Robin Hood is New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding, and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York’s poorest neighborhoods. Since its founding, Robin Hood has distributed more than $1.45 billion in grants and initiatives to hundreds of New York City-based soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job training programs, and other vital services that give New York’s neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives for themselves and their families.
