EverydayFamily CARES

EverydayFamily was created to provide resources, support, and guidance in an online community that can bring diverse families together to share and to learn. One of the many things we hope to encourage in our community is a spirit of community service. Since example is the best teacher, EverydayFamily makes every effort to support charitable organizations, not only through monetary donations, but also through volunteer hours worked and awareness raised. We hope that our members will get to know some of these organizations and find a cause that moves them to action. Growing families have much to gain from growing good in their community.

Below we have featured some of our employees’ favorite charities. Their personal stories of growth and connections are just a small part of the good works being done. EverydayFamily recognizes their dedication to these causes by contributing company funds to support these worthy organizations.

I feel honored to work for a company that recognizes the value of supporting many great charitable organizations that better the lives of countless families. Of the many, Shriners Hospitals for Children hold a special place in my heart, not only for their good works, but for the connection I feel to them because of my brother, James. He was a big kid at heart, who unfortunately knew the pain of multiple hospitalizations and orthopedic surgeries due to a leg injury. I lost a best friend, whose sense of humor and boundless love I treasure, when James died in a car accident in 2009 at the age of 29. In his memory, my family is happy to support the life-changing efforts of Shriners Hospitals.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is an extremely important cause to me. As a child I saw the heartbreaking stories of young children 2, 3, 4 years old battling blood cancers like Leukemia and Lymphoma and was inspired by their strength. To see the positive attitude that some of these children have in the face of what can be a terminal illness is nothing short of amazing. Ever since that day as a child I have donated my time, yard work money, paycheck, etc. to help fund life saving research and patient services at LLS. I recently joined the board of trustees for the Orange County / Inland Empire, CA chapter of LLS and have since been exposed to many more stories of strength. My involvement has led to personal relationships with those affected by these terrible diseases and I have gained a greater perspective on life and an even greater devotion to finding a cure.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation enables children with life-threatening medical conditions a dream come true. I can't imagine anything better as a child than to have my dearest wish come true, and these children need that. By supporting this amazing charity, I hope to help children facing such underserved circumstances fulfill their dreams.

$12,850 Donated

Everyone struggles, and this amazing organization helps families get back on their feet and maintain self-sufficiency so hopefully their hard times can be put behind them. This charity states that it's biggest concern is to protect the children. This really strikes a cord for me, as children are our future! They do not have control over the choices their parents make, or the circumstances that may affect them, but are affected by those things nonetheless. I'm proud to be able to say that the company I work for supports a group like this!

$3,500 Donated

My beautiful grandmother was affected by Alzheimers. It's hard to see someone you love lose memories of the wonderful life they led. Alzheimers is a terrible disease and the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation is doing inspired work to eradicate it. They are leading the world in the research to understand the cause, the cure, and educating people to provide a better quality of life for those who are afflicted.

$4,000 Donated

Christmas time has always been my favorite time of year. Ever since I can remember, my parents made a very big deal over the holidays. Even though we did not have much, they always found a way to get my sister and I something for Christmas and made it very special. Unfortunately some children do not get anything at all for Christmas because their families simply cannot afford anything. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation collects new toys and distributes them as Christmas gifts to needy children, working locally with people to help others in the same community. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

$3,500 Donated

This charity is near and dear to my heart because my grandfather is afflicted with Parkinson's Disease. I have witnessed the drastic effects this unfortunate disease has caused, and I fully support the Michael J. Fox Foundation's continued effort to discover a cure.

$10,000 Donated

Having lost both of our grandparents last year, our family has seen firsthand how LifePath Hospice can help to comfort individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones. This non-profit organization was instrumental in allowing my grandparents to leave this world in the manner of their choosing, in comfort at home, surrounded by family. I am proud to support this organization and to know that other families will receive the same care that we were so grateful to receive during those difficult times.

$8,350 Donated

At Home for our Troops, they are strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. They assist severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor and to coordinate the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. Having 3 brother-in-laws and a nephew who have recently served in the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I am proud to work for a company who helps support such an organization.

No child should go hungry... In the United States, more than one out of six children lives in a household with food insecurity, which means they do not always know where they will get their next meal from, that just shouldn't be a concern in America. Children shouldn't have to worry about going to school hungry, or being exposed to poor health and stunted growth because they don't have consistent access to proper nutrition. We at EverydayFamily are happy to be part of the solution.

$1,000 Donated

Because of the support they provide for struggling, single moms. Their mission is to present Single Moms with opportunities to maximize success and reduce the stress of raising a family alone, with the intention of opening a world of promise to women and children who have buried hopes and dreams in sacrifice of merely surviving.
