During the holiday season and throughout the year, it is important to recognize people doing good things and give them credit for their selfless efforts.
This December, Spongeoutlet would like to acknowledge an organization that we are a supporter of: Cleaning For A Reason.
Cleaning For A Reason is a nonprofit organization in the United States and Canada.
This organization has one mission: “To give the gift of free house cleaning to women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.”
Cleaning For A Reason cleans the homes of women that are battling with cancer for absolutely no cost.
The organization has recruited over 1,200 maid services that donate free housecleaning services to women being affected by cancer.
The point of the organization is to take away at least one burden from women that are facing so many.
President and Founder, Debbie Sardone, began Cleaning For A Reason many years ago when she had an interaction with a woman that she could not forget.
At the time, Debbie was the owner of Buckets and Bows Maid Service. She was on the phone with a prospective client who told Debbie that she could no longer afford hiring a maid service because of her cancer treatment. The women hung up the phone and Debbie knew in her heart that she had to help the women in this situation.
In 2005, Debbie shared her heart-wrenching story at a national cleaning conference and gained the interest and support she needed to develop Cleaning For A Reason.
The nonprofit organization has provided maid services throughout the years that are now valued at six million dollars.
2,300 women have had their homes cleaned through Cleaning For A Reason and the organization has continued to expand.
If you are inspired by this story, we encourage you to donate to Cleaning For A Reason.When you donate, your name will appear on the organization’s website and they will send a card to the patient or their family that a donation was received. The organization will never release the monetary amount of the donation.
