Russell's Name out Lined

Meet Russell.

In June of 2018 Russell J. Efros, at the age of 25, died from fentanyl poisoning. As friends and family, our hearts were broken and we were desperate for a way to keep his memory alive.

This story is one of grief harnessed into hope – a story of a community coming together to pick up the pieces and clear the pathway for something beautiful to grow.

Through The RJE Foundation, we honored Russell by supporting creatives – we funded 32 artists’ projects and cultivated a community of over 2,000 supporters. Over the years, the community evolved into something bigger than we could have ever imagined.

In response, we launched the Sprout Society – space where everyone is welcome, where our differences are celebrated and our mental wellness is nurtured.
