Tualatin, Oregon (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
With the Holiday season behind us and resolutions in full force, many are looking for a charity to support in the New Year. Parklane Mattresses is proud to be a 2012 sponsor of Children’s Cancer Association, a non-profit organization that gives 82% of all funds directly to their programs.
A family owned and local company, Parklane Mattresses sought out the same qualities in the charity they would support, making Children’s Cancer Association, a Portland based and family run organization, the perfect match. Parklane Mattresses’ role as a Children’s Cancer Association sponsor is an excellent example of Oregonians helping other Oregonians.
Children’s Cancer Association focuses on meeting the non-medical needs of ill children and their families in Oregon and SW Washington, but has the capacity to help those in need nationwide. This organization goes beyond the medicine, bringing joy to hospitalized children through several innovative programs, including “Music Rx®,” which uses musical therapy and performances to provide relaxation and entertainment. For additional information on Children’s Cancer Association and their programs, please click on the following link (http://www.joyrx.org/).
There will be many opportunities for the public to join Parklane Mattresses in sporting the Children’s Cancer Association throughout 2012. Beginning January 1st through February 14th, Parklane Mattresses’ eight retail stores will be participating in Hearts of Joy, a fundraiser for Children’s Cancer Association in which they involve multiple businesses throughout the community to sell paper hearts in $1 and $5 increments. These paper hearts, which act as visual representations of the donations, will be displayed throughout each store. Parklane is hoping to raise $4,000 through this fundraiser.
Another way to support Children’s Cancer Association is through 105.1 the Buzz’s Valentine’s Day for CCA Radiothon. The Radiothon will be on-air February 13th from 5:00 am–7:00pm and the 14th from 5:00am–10:00am. During this window, Parklane Mattresses will donate 10% of all sales (up to $1,000) to Children’s Cancer Association.
With multiple opportunities to join Parklane Mattresses in giving to Children’s Cancer Association, the company hopes to rally enough support and donations to make a real difference in the lives of local ill children and their families.
