At Market Veep we don’t just say “Be Kind, Do Good, Market On™” we live it! That’s why 50x52 was founded. Every team member here gets to add their favorite causes to a list. Then throughout the year, each week, a donation of $50 is given to one of those charities. We love our causes. We invite you to join us in supporting them!
Great Smoky Mountains Association
Mission: Great Smoky Mountains Association supports the perpetual preservation of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the national park system by promoting greater public understanding and appreciation through education, interpretation, and research.
An amazing range and a rich history combined in one place! The Great Smoky Mountains Association depends on the generous support of donors to preserve the Smokies for generations to come. The mission of the Great Smoky Mountains Association is to support the preservation of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Since its founding more than 65 years ago, the Great Smoky Mountains Association has contributed more than $46 million to the park’s programs and preservation. That’s a huge sum of money and worth every penny.
Marissa, a Project Manager at Market Veep, nominated the Great Smoky Mountains Association for inclusion in the 50x52 program. As a lifelong frequent visitor of the national park, protecting the majesty of the Smokies is a cause that’s extraordinarily important to her.
“I’ve been going to the smokies ever since I was a kid so it holds a special place in my heart. I think it’s so important to preserve the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains and protect the bears, deer, and other critters that call it home.” We couldn’t agree more! Thanks, Marissa! Your cause has inspired us.
Environmental Defense Fund
Mission: Environmental Defense Fund's mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends.
The Environmental Defense Fund approaches the biggest environmental challenges using science, economics, partnerships, and donations from businesses like us and people like you. They take a broad approach to combatting climate change that incorporates scientific innovation, economic sustainability, political advocacy, and values-aligned partnerships. For more than 50 years they have pioneered ways to give us a better environment. Because of what they give, it’s easy for us at Market Veep to give to the Environmental Defense Fund.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Mission: The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family's ability to pay.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital finds cures and saves children. How could we not support so great a cause? Founder Danny Thomas opened the doors to St. Jude in 1962 with the dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life.” When kids have cancer, disease, or any life-threatening illness, St. Jude Hospital is there to help. Unlike other hospitals, the majority of their funding comes from individual contributions. And those gifts mean that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food. What better way to “Be Kind” or “Do Good” than to save the life of a child?
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Mission: Cure Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s Disease, and Myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is dedicated to curing multiple types of blood cancers. Since 1949, investing nearly $1.5 billion dollars, they work tirelessly to find cures and provide hope. Their mission is bold. Their research saves lives. Their goal helps the whole family. As a leading source of information, education, and support, they have become a leading nonprofit organization. We support strong initiatives like this.
Mission: Our mission is to support Massachusetts Police dogs by helping provide bullet-resistant vests (our primary goal), essential equipment, funding for training, and purchase of dogs for police/law enforcement K-9 programs throughout Massachusetts.
Everyone wants their partner to be safe. Vest-A-Dog believes that too. The primary goal of Vest-A-Dog is to insure every Massachusetts K-9 has a bullet-resistant vest. They also devote resources to safety, training, and equipment needs for brave K-9s. These furry friends partner with police to protect their communities. A donation can save lives. Because of the generous support of donors, Vest-A-Dog is proud to have provided over 700 vests to law enforcement agencies. This is one organization that we want to go to the dogs!
