AS A VOLUNTEER
Caring compassionate people are the heart and soul of the Jessie Rees Foundation. Each week they graciously use their time and talents to help encourage courageous kids to Never Ever Give Up. In Orange County, people help out at the JoyFactory and support our annual events. Beyond Orange County, thousands more use their time to share our story, hold JoyDrives and host Courageous Cupcake Stands.
AS A CORPORATION
We are honored to partner with compassionate corporations that desire to spread joy with us to children fighting cancer. What is great about our corporate “give back” opportunities is they are customizable to meet your budget and engage your associates. In-kind donations of goods or pro bono services are two other great way for companies to support us. We are always looking to partner companies that make and or distribute children’s toys.
AS AN ATHLETE
Jessie was a Jr. Olympic Swimmer, so having the generous support of elite athletes is truly incredible. These wonderful “All-Stars” help us encourage kids across the country to Never Ever Give Up, just like Jessie wanted! Our All-Star team is made up of professional, collegiate and elite teen athletes. The team is led by 4-time Olympic Medalist, Kaitlin Sandeno.
AS A GROUP OR CLUB
If you are part of a community group or club please help share Jessie’s story and support her mission. A super fun way to do this is hold your very own Joy Drive or Courageous Cupcakes stand. These are just two great ways to get involved and help support children fighting cancer.
AS A SCHOOL
Schools are full of wonderfully caring kids, parents and teachers who desire to see kids fighting cancer encouraged to Never Ever Give Up. These wonderful teams of people hold JoyDrives, host Courageous Cupcake Stands, collect Compassion Change and create special events to encourage kids in their community fighting cancer. All of our programs are perfect for elementary, intermediate and high school students.
