According to the Giving Institute, large corporations are known for donating millions of dollars to charities each year, yet they only account for about 5 percent of all donations to U.S. nonprofits. Small businesses are collectively contributing billions of dollars to philanthropy, and this international and local goodwill does not go unnoticed. Expressionary is a new Atlanta-based company, which declared upon its launch that their underlying mission is to contribute to charitable organizations with every purchase made. Expressionary has stated that a minimum of 10 percent of their profits will be donated to charity. It is also important to note that when a person purchases an Expressionary, they can specifically elect which charity (among those featured) that their purchase will be applied towards. Customers can learn about Expressionary partnership charities at http://www.theexpressionary.com/about/giving.
Among the charitable organizations that Expressionary is partnered with, they are eager to contribute to CURE International. CURE is a non-profit organization which operates hospitals and programs in 20 countries around the world, performing desperately needed surgeries on hundreds of thousands of under-privileged children. CURE has seen over 1.5 million patients, provided over 121,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 2,400 medical professionals in countries, such as Kenya.
The Tim Tebow Foundation also recently collaborated with CURE.

The first initiative in this partnership with CURE will be an International Children's Hospital Construction Project.
