Each of us has the power to change the world for the better, and it all starts with charitable giving.
Akron, OH (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
Mark Jenney, an Akron-area philanthropist and entrepreneur made contributions to several charitable organizations last week, including Shoes and Clothes for Kids, the Bradley Center, Brave Kids, the World Hand Foundation, Angelwish, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“My goal is to donate to a different charity every day of the year,” said Jenney. “Each of us has the power to change the world for the better, and it all starts with charitable giving.”
Shoes and Clothes for Kids is a Cleveland-based organization that works to provide children in need with new clothes and shoes. In 2010, SC4K will distribute new clothing and Payless shoe gift cards with a retail value of $1,800,000.
The Bradley Center is a regional behavioral healthcare and child welfare system that provides comprehensive and caring services to children, youth, and families. Brave Kids helps children with disabilities, chronic, life threatening illnesses, and special needs by providing thousands of resources and medical information on childhood conditions.
The World Hand Foundation works to raise money to help amputees around the world receive medical and care and prosthetic technologies. Dan Didrick and Scott Zajaczkowski, the Foundation’s founders, released the world’s first prosthetic fingers for finger amputees.
Angelwish and the Make-A-Wish Foundation both work to help children with serious diseases or conditions have their wishes granted.
