Here at Skootzi we are not a bunch of greedy jerks that are all about making major bank; although admittedly our account is always accepting legal cash deposits, so if you have some extra money you don’t need feel free to hit us up- we’ll gladly oblige.
Seriously though, money is neutral and it can do both evil, or good depending on how you use it; so we believe in giving to others in need. Listed below are some causes “near and dear” to our proverbial heart. Throughout the year, we donate a portion of our profits to charitable organizations.
Below is who we support and why…
Meet Gloria. Throughout her life she wore many hats. That of friend, confidant, wife, colleague and was one of the most charitable person’s you could ever meet. She was always there to listen, give advice, offer a shoulder when needed, and dole out a butt kickin’ when warranted. One of her most important hats she wore was the one labeled Mom. She died of cancer in late 2012. A portion of our proceeds goes to help pay for people who cannot afford cancer treatments.
This is Treva. During her life she was the person who was overly kind, always concerned about how you are doing, wanting only the best for you and always excited to see you. You may know someone like this… she went by the name “Mammaw”. Others may know her as Grandma. Toward the end of her life she suffered from Alzheimer’s, one of the most debilitating diseases one can encounter. A portion of our proceeds goes to help research a cure for ALZ.
Water-sight. We also do work with impoverished people in Africa. Specifically we work with individuals who have direct connections, and are involved in helping to bring water to people in need, along with providing medicated salve to help prevent blindness in infants. When we learned about how common infant blindness is and how easy it is to prevent, we instantly felt a connection.
One final note for those of you that like details. Our donation process works like this; we allocate 1/3 of our quarterly revenue to each cause. For example qtr 1- donation made to cancer research, qtr 2- Alzheimer’s, qtr 3- water sight, qtr 4- cancer research, rinse and repeat.
