In January Jessicurl launched our new Giving Program. Over the years we’ve done what we could to support charities and non-profits, usually through donating products to auctions and the like. Starting in 2016 we’re making charitable giving a part of our business model and I couldn’t be more excited.
Each quarter we donate to a different charity or non-profit, and are very much interested in hearing from YOU about who you would like to see us support. Go to our Giving Program page and use the submission form to let us know what is important to you.
For the second quarter of 2016 I'm please to support A Little Help, based in Colorado. This orgnization was suggested by a Jessicurl customer and I'm thrilled to be supporting causes that matter to you! :)
A Little Help began in 2005 when a group of retirees recognized the desire of many seniors to stay in their own homes and contribute to their respective communities. These neighbors based their model on the national village movement, where neighbors coordinate and deliver essential services within their community to allow elders to remain in their homes. In 2007, A Little Help (formerly Washington Park Cares) incorporated as a 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing older adults with non-medical services essential to maintaining active, productive lives in their own homes within community.
Since then, A Little Help has served over 450 elders and have engaged more than 1,000 community volunteers. A Little Help is helping older adults age in their homes by connecting them to an important resource plentiful in every community; good neighbors. Many tasks around the house and yard chip away at independence, but with A Little Help, good neighbors can help elders with transportation, yard work, handiwork, home organization, and social engagement so they may thrive in the communities they have put down roots in for decades. A Little Help is dedicated to helping older adults thrive in meaningful community by connecting intergenerationally to share stories, combat isolation, and reawaken purpose.
I'm thrilled that Jessicurl can contribute to improving the lives of seniors. I’m also eager to hear from you about who you think we should support in the future, so please feel free to let me know using the form on the Giving Program page.
Here’s to 2016 being a happy and healthy year for everyone.
