We have enjoyed a fortunate tenure here at The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center, and we want to show our appreciation by engaging in philanthropic activities in our community and in our world.
Equal Justice Initiative
The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center supports Equal Justice Initiative. Formed by the legendary Brian Stevenson, EJI is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the U.S., challenging racial and economic injustice and protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. Today, criminal justice reform is an integral part of the establishment of racial justice. EJI is at the forefront of that work. Nearly 10 million Americans, including millions of children, have an immediate family member in jail or prison. More than 4.5 million Americans can’t vote because of a past conviction. And each year, we lose $87 billion in GDP due to mass incarceration.

What’s Next Washington
The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center supports What’s Next Washington. Founded in 2017, this organization advocates and organizes systemic policy change to establish full civil rights for people with convictions history. A just system believes that people can move on and thrive. When individuals are not given the opportunity to renew and resurrect their standing as noble human beings, they are marginalized and further pushed into the throngs of a punitive system. At What’s Next Washington, the shame and stigma of past convictions are guided into a productive beginning and establishment of gainful employment.

Recovery Café is a unique refuge of healing and transformation in Seattle that has recently received regional and national attention. Believing in the preciousness of every human being and using love and hope as a background banner of treatment, Recovery Café provides a program of holistic person-centered system of care that engages individuals with a history of addiction and homelessness to manage their disease and social standing.
Recovery Café is the latest philanthropic project that our office has become involved with. Each pay period, our staff has the option of dedicating a portion of their pay, which will then be matched by our practice and given to Recovery Café on a quarterly basis. We have also made a commitment to donating a significant amount each year to this worthy cause irrespective of staff participation.

Children’s Hospital And Regional Medical Center
Children are the greatest gift of our lives. They embody the hopes of the future of our planet. At The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center, we believe that every child deserves appropriate healthcare.

We at The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center are proud to have actively made major contributions to Children’s Foundation and Guild Association. The well-being of our children should be a priority for all of us.

In 1981, LifeWire opened up its doors as Eastside Domestic Violence Program (EDVP) and grew to become the largest provider of services for domestic violence victims in Washington. A support group for battered women and two volunteer safe homes were the first services offered, followed a year later by a 24-hour crisis line. Today, in addition to the crisis line, LIFEWIRE operates two confidential shelters, offers additional safe housing in the community, runs support groups for women and children, provides extensive community education and training, and advocates on behalf of victims.
Over the years, LIFEWIRE has been recognized for innovative programs. They created the Community Advocacy program that provides links to victims through police departments, hospitals, social service agencies, and more. They have also launched My Friend’s Place, a transitional housing program for families dealing with both domestic violence and substance abuse — the first program of its kind. In addition, LIFEWIRE works to expand community education with the Domestic Violence Goes to Work campaign.
The need for their services has increased along with community awareness. Future LIFEWIRE goals include youth education, expanded housing options, and more legal services for victims, as well as strengthening their infrastructure to ensure the stability of the organization.
The Egrari Plastic Surgery Center is pleased to do our part in supporting this worthy cause by sponsoring a family each holiday season for giving. Everyone in our office contributes by gathering a wish list for the family.
