Sure we hear the accusations all the time. This charity spent less than 3 cents on the dollar helping kids. Another charity spent more than half of their fund raising contributions on consulting and publicity. Another charity paid the charity’s founder and their consulting firm millions. The claims go on and on and unfortunately some are true.
However, there is one charity, the Children’s Cancer Association – Oregon, that is highly rated, especially in the areas of accountability and transparency metrics. You can review the information for yourself HERE. They are one of the good guys and can always use our help/support.
It’s a unique opportunity to join local riders in support of CCA’s Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin program. The JoyRide benefits a retreat home on the Oregon Coast, which provides families with seriously ill children and teens battling serious illness an extraordinary place to retreat, relax, and create once-in-a-lifetime memories.
Independent of what you ride, bikers of all kinds will gather together for a JoyRide in support of CCA. The JoyRide will kick off at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel. Participants will ride to the Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin in Pacific City, where there is a celebration of the rider support. The JoyRide is open to individuals or teams. Registration information is HERE.
See you there!
