Monthly Charity Winner – The Cure Starts Now
This month’s vending machine charity winner is The Cure Starts Now. Voted on by our staff, The Cure Starts Now is a cancer charity that focuses on exactly what their name says: finding a cure, now. By researching pediatric brain cancer, they hope to ultimately find a “homerun cure” to end all types of cancer.
The Arkansas Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was started in memory of Maylea Estridge, who was diagnosed with a type of brain cancer in March 2014. All funds raised by all chapters of this organization go directly towards cancer research and active efforts to find a cure.
Our monthly charity giving is one of our favorite things to do. Each month employees nominate and vote on a charity in the community they would like to help. Throughout the month, employees “donate” by buying snacks and drinks that the firm subsidizes. All the proceeds from the snacks are then matched by the firm. We are honored to have such great employees who not only pick out wonderful organizations, but also help by donating all month long
