These are causes that I support
The following charities are ones that I recomend 100%. They all happen to be founded by folks I know personally who are working very hard to take some very tough loss and turn it into something very positive. Thanks for any support you can offer.
Be Bold, Be Bald! http://beboldbebald.org
Be Bold, Be Bald! was created by Small Army for a Cause, a 501c3 organization founded by members of Boston-based advertising agency Small Army in honor of Mike Connell, the agency's co-founder and former Creative Principal who lost his battle with cancer in 2007.
Witnessing Mike’s heroic, two-year fight, we saw firsthand the courage and strength cancer patients have. He inspired us to continue that fight ourselves - and to do so in a way that would truly represent the boldness of Mike and his ideas.
Be Bold, Be Bald! was founded in 2009. The annual event invites any and all to put their hair on the line for a day to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer. On the third Friday of October each year, thousands across the country join together in going bald to show solidarity with cancer survivors who have lost their hair during their fight against this terrible disease.
Established in 2014 by Brett and Eileen Linzer, Quinn Madeleine Inc. seeks to fill two major voids - one in the larger world of terminally ill children, and the other in the smaller world of Niemann-Pick Disease, Type A.
The Fly A Kite Foundation...Providing Children With Pediatric Brain Cancer Artistic Tools To Soar. https://www.giveforward.com
The Fly A Kite Foundation was founded in August 2014 by David and Deena Bernstein after the loss of their son Zachary. Zachary was an 11 year-old boy who was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) from age 10. DIPG is a type of brain tumor found in the Pons, the part of the brainstem near the lower back of the head. DIPG affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 10 years of age. DIPG accounts for 10-15% of all brain tumors in children, with about 150 new diagnoses each year. Fewer than 10% of children diagnosed with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis.
