Founded in January of 2018 by twin brothers, musicians Matthew & Nathan Leone, Charity Bomb develops methods and mechanisms that fortify the mental well-being of children as a preventative strategy to mitigate mental health challenges.
The Leone brother’s curiosity about traditional IQ-based curriculum being devoid of EQ evolved from a passion project, into a career, after discovering the manifestation of childhood trauma and dysfunction into adulthood.
Childhood trauma often leads to struggles with depression, bullying, suicide, and addiction. Instead of treating these conditions after they’ve taken hold, Charity Bomb’s custom, age-banded EQ exercise worksheets, curriculum lessons, and immersive gamified app (in development) help children develop life skills, intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness, relationship-building ability and strong value profiles. The advantages of our data-backed method stretch far beyond the scope of preventing these conditions. Students of this curriculum tend to excel in all major pillars of life.
Given the precarious nature of today’s world, it has never been more important to galvanize our children’s mental and emotional fortitude. Our ambition is to foster confidence, self-awareness and the emotional resilience necessary for children to navigate their way to a happy, successful, and fulfilling life, while avoiding the pitfalls of anger, depression, anxiety and addiction. This is Operation GENzEQ…learn more

We raise funds by curating custom experiences that can’t be purchased on the regular market and auction them, and with our overwhelmingly successful STRANGE benefit series, which happen annually in Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Minneapolis.
