Kids Without Cancer
“Over the years I have been part of many fundraisers and events for cancer research and have raised $3.6 million for the cause….This charity has given back so much over the years and will not stop until they find a cure for cancer. I am proud to be a volunteer of KWC.”
“It was incredible volunteering for TH. I had the honor to rewrite their Web content, promote their efforts in Chase Community Giving, and overall get to know them on a profound level. I believe with all my heart that Teen HYPE defines greatness.”
“I helped get the museum ready for the grand opening. I couldn’t believe the amount of work put into the museum by one small family….The art is nothing like I’ve ever seen before and it’s awesome we have this type of museum in Detroit.”
