My cousin Candice, who just moved to Toronto, ran in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Race for the Cure last week. InvestorGeeks donated $300 on her behalf, and Candice was able to raise $525 total to help fund breast cancer research and awareness programs.
Since last Fall, InvestorGeeks has been donating 100% of after-expense profits to charity. So far we’ve contributed $700 total to a couple of great causes and have some good stuff lined up for the end of the year. I think I’ll start keeping track of the donations in the sidebar somewhere. Look for that soon.
If you like what you read here, and want to support InvestorGeeks, I think you can still donate to the CBCF on Candice’s behalf through this link. Show your support.
Breast cancer charities can get a bit of flak for being “trendy causes”. The cause has some good marketers on its side. It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and everything. Still, brease cancer affects a ton of people, which is the real reason so many are so quick act, donate, and help out. It IS a good cause.
Thanks for visiting the site often enough for us to make a bit of ad revenue that we can use to support these great charities. And thanks again to Candice for doing the real work and running the race last week.
