As the holiday season wraps us in the spirit of generosity, SendAFriend is thrilled to share the joy of giving through our recent monetary donations. This year, we were able to contribute a total of $25,275 to nonprofit organizations, spreading love and support near and far.
We proudly donated $10,000 to Pockets Full of Sunshine, an organization dedicated to providing adults with disabilities opportunities for socialization, skill development, and enjoyable outings. In support of families experiencing the challenges of cancer, we donated another $10,000 to For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation. This contribution provides families with much-needed retreats and staycations, offering a reprieve from the stresses of cancer and a chance to create lasting memories together.
SendAFriend is committed to building lasting relationships, and this year, we continued our support for organizations we've worked with in the past. The Ian Clemens Foundation, We Do Care, and The Still Place each received $1,000 to further their missions in supporting children in hospitals, helping those navigating grief, and offering respite to families facing tough medical diagnoses.
Our commitment extends to the local community that is not just our base but our extended family. We donated $2,500 to the Safe House of Southeast Missouri, providing a safe haven for those experiencing domestic abuse, and $1,000 to the Neighbor Hub, a place where locals facing homelessness can find a meal, clean clothes, and hygiene supplies. A donation of $775 fulfilled holiday wishlists for SEMO-NASV, supporting survivors of sexual abuse.
Through our holiday monetary donations, we aim to inspire positive change and uplift those in need. As a reminder, 10% of all our profits are dedicated to supporting nonprofit organizations across the country that share our vision. Together, we can continue to make the world a better place.
