Home & Garden Party Raise $1 Million for the American Cancer Society
It's no surprise that the independent Designers for Home & Garden Party jumped on the opportunity to give back to the community. As Designers for the company, it is not only their mission to offer high-quality home decor, but it is also their top focus to make a difference in people's lives. That is why the company succeeded in raising $1 million for the American Cancer Society, according to the company's founders Penny and Steve Carlile.
"We have found that our Designers really care about their communities, and wanted to make some type of contribution that truly meant something. They were delighted to take part in the company's 'Give Hope' campaign, which helped raise money to go towards cancer research and awareness," said Steve Carlile. "We were so happy to reach the $1 million mark so that the American Cancer Society can continue the fight against cancer."
Home & Garden Party created the Give Hope fundraising campaign in 2001 so that its employees, Designers, and customers could contribute to the company's commitment to help fight cancer and assist in various patient support programs and research. Founders Penny and Steve Carlile began the fundraiser by pledging to match the first $50,000 raised by its Designers. During hosted, private parties where Designers displayed Home & Garden Party products, guests were given the option to add a dollar or more to their orders or to purchase special products with the proceeds to be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Home & Garden Party began their partnership with the American Cancer Society in 2001 and has donated over $1 million for various cancer research programs, cancer awareness and education, college scholarships for cancer victims, transportation grants and Hurricane Katrina relief. Besides their charitable involvements, Home & Garden Party Designers offer high-quality products to enliven homes. The company was founded 12 years ago with a mission to help people obtain the American Dream. Home & Garden Party currently has thousands of registered Designers all across the country.
