The Seany Foundation is an up-and-coming charity with big goals! I am new to the Foundation and I can't wait to see what we can do.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and excited to raise money for pediatric cancer research.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hopefully cure pediatric cancer!

The Seany Foundation gives back to their participants as much as it gives back to the cancer patients it provides for.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

help so many lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

advertise more.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the free t-shirt!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very kind-hearted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a world of difference.

Ways to make it better...

The venue was bigger.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out to the public.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the cause is a great cause.

A great organization requires good goals and good people--The Seany Foundation has both. A diverse, passionate, and generous group of people, the Seany Foundation definitely deserves the 2009 Cancer Fighters Award as they will continue to selflessly give back to the community!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extraordinary and very personable. The people involved in this organization are dedicated and passionate and I have full confidence that they will work in every way to accomplish their goals.

The passion that you see from those involved in this foundation is infectious. From the founders, board members, organizers, and volunteers you see an intense commitment to carry on the fight for whom this foundation is in honor of, Sean Robins. The rapidly accelerating success in awareness and donations is a testament to their effectiveness as an organization and their tremendous potential.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Huge turn outs for their events such as a sold-out movie theaters: http://www.sandiego6.com/news/local/story/Using-Harry-Potters-magic-for-good/J2US3Zy5VUO0yPOf054Drw.cspx

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be proud if I were able to come close to the pace at which this organization is growing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Involving myself in a cause that I know is making the lives of children better and supporting Sean's fight against cancer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff and volunteers are comprised of diverse group of people from all ages and backgrounds. Everyone is giving, hard working, motivated, and friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Achieve their present goals and put itself in a position to set their future goals even higher!

Ways to make it better...

someone decided to donate $1,000,000 to the foundation

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the same as any foundation of this sort...raising enough funds to accomplish the goal of beating cancer.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The efficeny at which the Seany Foundation deploys it's funds does not compare to any other organization I've seen, non-profit or otherwise.

The Seany Foundation is great because they strive to make the lives of children with cancer better. Many childhood diseases get left behind with little to no research funding because they "don't make any money for Big Pharma." The children are our future and we can't put a price tag on that. The Seany Foundation has done so much to make the lives of these young children better, including a wide range of different types of events, donating to build a teen center, and research funding. They do it all! You gotta support the Seany Foundation!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way we approach children who have to battle cancer. Also, they could provide research money for the leading doctors that treat Ewing's sarcoma.

I have attended a couple of the Seany Foundation events now and every time, I truly feel like I have contributed to an amazing cause. I am moved by every story I hear from Mitch and Amy regarding Sean's strengths and struggles. It brings tears to my eyes and makes me want to do more in making contributions to such an important cause like pediatric cancer. The Seany Foundation truly makes you see that life is beautiful and precious. I look forward to the future of the Seany Foundation. I am happy to be a part of it in any way I can.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the education of pediatric cancer and truly...the celebration of Seany's life. It has always been a positive experience...I think that's what Seany wanted.

The Seany Foundation has developed fantastic ideas for raising money for a worthy cause. I attended their Cut-A-Thon at Evolve Salon in January and got a great haircut at a well-organized event. The mission behind Seany Records -- to support and foster the creative development of artists while donating a portion of its profits to the Seany Foundation -- is innovative and visionary. I look forward to all that this organization will achieve in the future!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the breadth of what they're involved in.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

energetic, outgoing, intelligent and stand-up people.
