Here’s what Mobile Commerce Daily thinks of the holidaysBy
We wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and a great 2010.
Your time and help made our year and gives us hope that mobile’s stocking has many goodies for all mobile marketers and retailers.
In this season of giving, our team put together a list of some of their favorite causes and why they support them. Please give these charities and nonprofits a second look as they make someone else’s day.
“St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
“With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
“Text HOPE to short code 90999 to make a $5 donation.”
– Giselle Tsirulnik
“Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.
“Its national network of community-based nature centers and chapters, scientific and educational programs and advocacy on behalf of areas sustaining important bird populations engage millions of people of all ages and backgrounds in positive conservation experiences.”
– Dan Butcher
“This charity is extremely close to my heart, as I have a handicapped sibling.
“Help Special Olympics with a year-end gift and join them in changing lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
“Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy. Your generosity enables them to provide training, competitions, and other programs that benefit athletes, their families and their communities.”
– Rob DiGioia
“CancerCare is a nonprofit organization that offers free counseling and support services to cancer patients and their loved ones. Their goal is to help those who feel as if there is nowhere else to turn.
“CancerCare is a place that touches my heart, especially at this time, because my mother passed away from cancer 21 years ago during the holiday season.
“As someone who has been personally affected by this disease, I find that the best way to prevent more lives lost would be to donate to this wonderful cause.
“So many people are taken away prematurely by the disease and I believe by supporting this cause you are not only helping those living with cancer, but their family and friends as well.”
– Jodie Solomon
“As a vegetarian and animal lover, the Humane Society of the United States is a cause I am proud to support.
“My family adopted my childhood dog, Roxanne, from our local shelter when I was in middle school. Formerly known around town as the “dumpster dog,” she has brought untold love and joy to our lives.
“Cruelty to animals is no joke. Pets from all walks of life deserve to be cared for by a loving family and Humane Societies nationwide help in every way possible.”
– Chris Harnick
“No one should go hungry. Period. No child. No parent. And especially no senior. Not in America.”
– Mickey Alam Khan
