Mission: "We play games so that children's hospitals in the United States and Canada have the funding they need. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $70 million USD for sick and injured kids."
“Play Games. Heal Kids.” It’s easy! Gamers go on a 24 hour gaming marathon, often streamed online, to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (and the hospitals’ COVID-19 Impact Fund). Extra Life launched in 2008 to honor a little girl who died of leukemia — the same disease that took my fiance’s younger brother’s life when he was just 4 years old. It’s a special cause for me, and I love that 100% of all donations go directly to the hospitals." - Bill, Content Writer
Mission: "Ceres is transforming the economy to build a sustainable future for people and the planet. We are a sustainability nonprofit organization working with the most influential investors and companies to build leadership and drive solutions throughout the economy."
Some problems feel too big to solve - climate change, pollution, and inequitable workplaces, just to name a few. Ceres believes we can and will solve these problems, together.
Mission: "We protect the environment for wildlife, to support the natural world that sustains us all. The Berkshire Environmental Action Team (BEAT) is a 501(c)3 non-profit. Anyone who knows us will tell you that we take the “action” part of our name seriously. Join us – our work wouldn’t be possible without our community."
The Berkshire Environmental Action Team is what happens when passion and community take on environmental threats. From river clean ups to watchdogging to educational outreach, this dedicated group does it all. Thank you for your tireless efforts to make our world a cleaner, safer place for all!
Mission: "MFM is a 501c3 that creates lasting memories for children ages 5-25 who have sustained long term injures. We do this by allowing them to find enjoyment in something they liked prior to their injury. Our goal is to showcase that their injuries do not define them and they can still live a full life. Whether it is going to a Red Sox game, watching a play or enjoying the latest movie or video game, MFM wants children to see the bright side of things."
A fleeting moment can have an impact that lasts a lifetime. Accidents happen in the blink of an eye, but one moment shouldn't define the rest of a person's life. Minutes for Memories understands that a few minutes of someone's time can provide memories for a lifetime and motivation to continue pushing towards a bright future. We're proud to support an organization that truly exemplifies what it means to Be Human.
