“Don’t give up, don 't ever give up” the words that were said in the 1993 espys that gave many people hope. Jim Valvano was a man who lived by that quote and never gave up even though he passed away, he did not ever give up and that is why he had a positive impact. Some of the reasons Jim Valvano had a positive impact is that he started a whole charity funded by espn that has had more than 150 million dollars donated to it, he also helped motivate others to do better things with their time on earth, and finally he just gave people so much hope and inspired people with his story.
Owners- For a charity the owners of the business will eventually want the firm to expand and grow over a certain amount of years, this will lead to the firm becoming more recognised and they can offer their service not just nationally but internationally. Cancer Research operates on a national scale, which means they offer their service to people in the United Kingdom. The owner of the charity Cancer Research won’t want to be making profits, they will be focusing on offering the best service possible to his customers. The money cancer research does receive from donations they will spend on research and treatments for
There are mixed reviews about the choice of Planned Parenthood. They have eight million activists, supporters, and donors nationwide (Who We Are, 2014). However, some people still have an issue with how strongly Planned Parenthood support contraception, or abortion. They believe that every woman should have access to the full range reproductive health care services, including access to and legal abortions (Our Issues: Where We Stand, 2015). It will forever be a controversial issue within the views of abortions, but as a social worker, realistically, we have to accept the fact that abortions could be an option for the clients we are seeing. They could have possibly been raped by a family member and choose not to have the baby, so then we would
As a candidate for the National Junior Honor Society, I understand that is it not important to only have good grades and help the community. Being in NJHS means that you have to be a role model to everyone around you. A role model is someone who is a leader, demonstrates citizenship, and has good character.
In this situation I would not want to shut down any of my community based organizations. Knowing that the closure would lead to loss of jobs and affect the community as a whole. For starters I would look over our budget to see if there where any areas that I could possibly cut cost or do without. Going by a budget can also help you minimize risk for future obstacles. By eliminating unnecessary cost hopefully will increase funding so that layoffs will not be my only option. Other options that I would consider is cutting hours during the slow hours of the day.
Hunger is psychological and physical phenomenon in human system manifested in the form of discomfort or weakness which results from inadequacy or absence of food or appropriate nutrients. A large population around the globe, including the united States of America, experience hunger and the consequences because of shortage or lack of the right type of food. A “No Kid Hungry” TV commercial, launched in 2010 by Share Our Strength food network organization, uses different components of appeal to captivate/persuade viewers to partner with the food banks and other programs to resolve the issues of hunger among children in America. The author of the commercial, Bill Shore, founded the food network organization in 1984 with a $ 2,000 cash advance credit card. In recent years, Share Our Strength has raised and invested more than $ 376 million
Tim Hortons has a lot of social initiatives that they run in society. Their social initiatives include, camps for children, recycling programs and sports programs. Social responsibility is defined as, “The obligation of an organization's management towards the welfare and interests of the society in which it operates.” (Social Responsibility, n.d.).

Planned Parenthood 2008 employee of the year, Abby Johnson, worked at a clinic in Texas for eight years and served as director of the clinic for more than two years and during this time she experienced first-hand, the cold-hearted acts of the Planned Parenthood organization. Johnson started at Planned Parenthood because she was passionate about helping poor women receive the medical treatment they deserve. It was for this same reason that she left Planned Parenthood with a complete change of heart because she realized the real drive behind the organization. After leaving Planned Parenthood, Abby Johnson wrote an article titled “Exposing the Planned Parenthood business model” and in this article she outlines the things she saw that eventually turned her against Planned Parenthood, starting with the lack of care for women’s health and safety. In this article Johnson states, “Planned Parenthood is also spending a lot of money convincing its primary income providers – taxpayers – that its highest priority is women's health and safety. Live Action and the Expose Planned Parenthood coalition released numerous undercover videos showing clinic staff aiding and abetting alleged sex traffickers in exploiting underage girls – some as young as 14.” Planned Parenthood taking part in this kind of unspeakable behavior goes against any statement that says their first priority is women’s health and safety. I find it shocking that people actually support this organization after accusations of exploiting underage girls. Unfortunately, behavior like this within the Planned Parenthood organization is not uncommon. Planned Parenthood is constantly trying to convince the people of this country that women’s health and safety is their main goal. Johnson explains the truth about
Though we serve thousands, that mission exists because of one child. Israel and Danielle Paskowitz founded Surfers Healing because of their son, Isaiah. Isaiah has autism, and when he struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload, riding the waves with his father calmed him like nothing else.
A scientific approach to fetal tissue research. The political battle of whether Planned Parenthood should receive funds from the government still rages in the political field. Last week on October 19, The state of Texas has successfully cut all state funding to Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides women's health services to low income women. This is the result from the recent undercover videos showing staff members of Planned Parenthood talking about fetal tissue and profits. These videos were secretly tapped by an anti-abortion organization called Center for Medical Progress, “a group of citizen journalists dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances”(CMp). This videos have sparked an outrage among the
One of the organizations I am proud to donate to is the United Service Organizations, or USO. Since 1941, the USO has supported troops at home and abroad. With the intent to lift the spirits of troops and their family members, the organization endeavors to provide a “home away from home” feeling for all the families dealing with the rigors of serving overseas. The organization became famous for its Camp Shows over the years--with some occurring in active war zones. To make this all possible, the USO relies heavily on private donations.

The article “I Will Not Be Pinkwashed”, on ButterBeliever.com website on October 22, 2011, Emily Benfit discusses her feelings behind “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” Benfit is a health researcher and writer. She has strong views on eating only natural, organic, and healthy foods; and is a firm believer that most doctors and government agencies have no business telling people what they should or shouldn’t be eating. Although Benfit blog is focused on nutritional foods and facts, this particular article is targeted towards those who support the breast cancer awareness movement. Directly at the beginning of the article Benfit argues very clearly that she is totally against Susan’s G. breast cancer awareness organization and there she states:
A couple was killed after a truck crashed into their car on Finkerton Highway, south of Flaxtown yesterday.
Approximately 100,000 children die of cancer before the age of 15 in the world every day.
