A donation in your name from SunStone
To celebrate the holiday season we are making a $7,500 donation to a deserving organization in your name. Our team recommended excellent organizations to donate, and why they should be selected. The winning charitable organization,as recommended by Nick Jacobs, is the Children's Defense Fund. Here is what Nick had to say:
"The reason I selected the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) is because their primary mission is to provide support to children who are struggling with hunger, homelessness, gun violence, and abuse. CDF provides a strong, effective, and independent voice for all the children of America who cannot vote, lobby or speak for themselves. They pay particular attention to the needs of poor children, children of color and those with disabilities. CDF educates the nation about the needs of children and encourages preventive investments before they get sick, drop out of school, get into trouble or suffer family breakdown.
The CDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit child advocacy organization that has worked relentlessly for more than 40 years to ensure a level playing field for all children. They champion policies and programs that lift children out of poverty; protect them from abuse and neglect; and ensure their access to healthcare, quality education and a moral and spiritual foundation. CDF advocates nationwide on behalf of children to ensure children are always a priority. Every dollar we give to the Children’s Defense Fund up to $100,000 will be matched by an anonymous donor. That means that our gift will double to provide twice as much."
This is a great organization and a great choice as this time of year celebrates our children. If you would like to know more about the good work CDF does, visit their website. SunStone has provided a $7,500 donation with all your names as a way of saying thank you for your business, your friendship and contribution to our ongoing success.
