Our donations continue to make a difference
We continue to make a difference for the greater good through our charity unit CellMark Cares. Every year, CellMark contributes a total of $350 000 to different charity organizations all over the world. Giving back to the community is and will always be utterly important for us.
This fall, we are happy to give funds to these four trustful non-profit organizations to help them fulfill their valuable missions. All four organizations were recommended by some of our employees, who consider these charities a little extra close to their hearts.
Read below in what way our grants helped these organizations to make a difference for others.
❤️️ Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLC)
Funding from CellMark Cares will contribute toward advancing life-saving cancer research, patient assistance and support, and critical cancer advocacy.
❤️️ Camp Kesem UCLA
Funding from CellMark Cares will be used to execute camp sessions as well as year-round support for campers 6–18 years of age. Camp Kesem, is a week-long overnight summer camp that some campers refer to as “the best week of the year.” The camp’s goal in 2024 is to provide over 8,000 children with free, supportive, year-round services through effective programs led by 5,300 college students in over 120 college-based chapters. Kesem strives to scale its services and expand so that any child in need of their services will have access to life-changing support.
❤️️ Sparkle Foundation
Funding from CellMark Cares will be used to provide food baskets for 80 families for the holidays. Each family will receive a $100 gift card to the American supermarket chain Safeway so they can create a holiday meal.
❤️️ Dear Future
Dear Future currently serves 500 children living in remote locations, roughly half in Peru and the other in Uganda with school supplies to successfully attend and continue onto the next grade. Funding from CellMark Cares will help expand to serve 750 students with school supplies and continue to increase the distribution of period products to school-aged successfully.
Girls in the two regions of Uganda that they help, stop attending school when they are found unable to access any basic materials to manage menstruation. Children ages 10–15 (that they serve) find themselves missing 3–5 days of school monthly because they don’t have the appropriate school and hygiene supplies. Dear Future’s program focuses directly on this demographic while working directly with schools to ensure attendance and hygienic education are provided. Dear Future works in partnership with a local UG nonprofit (NGO) that follows up with the schools to ensure attendance in these regions.
