Martesha enjoys modeling, taking pictures and coordinating fashion shows/ concerts to raise money for children with the autism spectrum disorder as well as other disabilities. Martesha Burrage, CEO/Founder of Social Good in Action Social Good in Action is a organization that focuses on helping organizations and non-profit organizations raise money for community services and programs that support children affected by developmental disabilities, abused, murdered, missing children, homeless & sheltered families in need. Martesha's primary activity is the development of fundraising fashion shows and concerts. These charity benefits raise money for local non-profit organizations so that they may better serve their community. “Originally, she didn’t start out thinking on a large scale. While working with children who had autism, she was inspired to organize a charity event to raise money for a local chapter that provided autism services support. After that first experience, it seemed that she could just keep doing more good around her if she used her skills planning fashion shows for other needs in our community. SGIA resulted from her inspiration and realization that all of us- every single person in a local community- can come together for a common cause and improve the lives of our children.” Martesha Burrage Founder
