Friday, April 20th: R’s celebration is for REASONS: It’s CLEANING FOR A REASON WEEK (April 17-23). No, it doesn’t entail hard work. I saw this and immediately images were conjured up of all the reasons I needed to clean. But, NO! It’s even better than that. You don’t have to clean at all. This celebration was established by the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation in 2009 to raise awareness that there is an organization that works to provide free residential cleaning to women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Activities will be held nationwide to let women know that there is a foundation that allows them to focus on their health while the foundation focuses on their home.
As their website states (http://cleaningforareason.org/), “Fighting cancer is difficult enough, but living with it is even tougher and that’s where Cleaning For A Reason steps in. As a nonprofit serving the entire United States and Canada, we partner with maid services to offer professional house cleanings to help women undergoing treatment for cancer, any type of cancer. To date, we have helped more than 9,000 women with cancer with more than $1 million in donated cleanings.” Go check out the web site, sign up for their newsletter and see how you can help with the gift a cleaning.
