The challenge now is how to provide enough services to cancer patients that make a real positive difference in their lives? How can a couple coming out from under the weight of healthcare and rehabilitation bills make the lives of 1000s of cancer patients in Orange County substantially better? We clearly need help.. and the help we need is from the local business community. Not by fundraising, we all suffer from donor fatigue, but from service providers willing to donate a portion of their service capacity to this just cause.
To advocate for this mission – we set up non-profit company Balance 251 which is tasked with persuading local companies to donate 1 service for every 25 they make to local cancer patients. The list of relevant service providers includes cleaning companies, laundry services, taxi services, dog walkers, massage services, dentists, hair and nails services, psychologists, yoga teachers, health food providers, personal shoppers, gardeners, music teachers, art teachers, home school teachers, dietitians and aromatherapists.
In order to walk the talk – 251 Industries has been formed to show the way for other companies. If we can work towards helping local people in need by donating 1 in 25 of our services then so can you.
