Giving Tuesday

December 2, 2014

Black Friday, Cyber Monday. Stores open on Thanksgiving Day. Midnight Madness. We are bombarded with consumerism. Did you really need that *(insert random useless object here)?

Today, take a step back, and partake in another way to celebrate the season; Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back to those in need. Channeling the spirit of generosity, please make a donation to the charity of your choice. Whether donating food, clothing, or money, this day is a chance to have a positive effect on the world we live in.

Cycle for Survival

February 8, 2012

This weekend, we will be riding in Cycle for Survival, an indoor team cycling event to raise money for research and the development of new drug therapies to treat rare cancers.

Last July, Cycle’s founder, Jennifer Goodman Linn, lost her 7-year battle with a rare form of sarcoma.  Her energy and passion was infectious, and she accomplished more in her 40 years, than most of us do in our lifetimes. A Harvard business school graduate and marketing executive, Jen channeled her expertise into creating the fastest growing privately founded non-profit organization in the country. Her unique business model allows Cycle for Survival to funnel 100% of all of its proceeds into research at Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, where she was treated.

In the wake of Susan G. Komen’s political decision to withdraw their funding to Planned Parenthood, and their equally political reversal of that decision, we are especially proud to support an organization whose heart and soul is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.

Cycle for Survival has funded over 27 clinical trials to date, some of which have already extended the lives of cancer sufferers.

Won’t you join us in keeping the wheels of Jen’s legacy spinning, and make a 100% tax-deductible donation to this incredible cause?
