Here at Centrifuge Media, we’re feeling pretty lucky. We just celebrated 12 years in business, and we continue to have great meetings with great clients. We’re really looking forward to the future.
But not everyone is this fortunate. Some people are dealing with diseases and disorders that have changed their lives. And while our clients remind us of all the strides that have been made, we also know how much work remains.
So we started thinking about how we could give something back. We’ve started devoting a portion of our proceeds every month to help raise awareness and research funds for some illnesses that have impacted us personally. Our Crew for a Cure is ready to join the fight!
September – Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Each year, over 15,000 children under 21 are diagnosed with cancer in the US alone. Centrifuge Media is proud to join in the fight against childhood cancer.
This month, we’re donating part of our proceeds to the Me Fine Foundation. Me Fine supports critically ill children and their families through financial and emotional support. This amazing organization helps pay for:
- Travel expenses for treatment
- Prescription drugs
- Other necessities
They also work directly with social workers at UNC and Duke Children’s Hospitals to provide another layer of help and care. As you learn more about Me Fine, you’ll see why we chose them as our first recipient.
What Me Fine families are saying:
“I can’t thank you enough. I don’t know what to say. You have saved my family once again. I give God the glory for people like you all.”
“I thank you and the Me Fine Foundation. You all are such angels. May God bless you and everyone who donated the money to help my family out. You helped out more than you had to. You all made my day. There is something to smile about, after all.”
“I thank you for being there when we needed your assistance. We look forward to the day that our little boy gets better, so we’re able to do something this special for you and your organization. I will pray for your continued success.”
“You have been wonderful to us and there will never be a way to thank you enough…”
October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection, education, and support services are invaluable in the fight against the disease. This October, Centrifuge Media is joining that fight. We’re wearing pink to raise awareness—and donating a portion of our proceeds to help fund breast cancer research.
November – Epilepsy Awareness Month
Over a lifetime, one in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy. And each year, more than 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with this seizure disorder. Centrifuge Media is proud to join the fight against epilepsy this month by donating a portion of our proceeds to help raise awareness and fund critical research.
December – World AIDS Day, December 1
Nearly 40 million people worldwide live with HIV/AIDS, including over 1 million in the US. While great strides have been made in the treatment of AIDS, there is still more to be done. Because Centrifuge Media supports finding a cure for HIV/AIDS, we are donating a portion of our proceeds this month to HIV/AIDS research.
