Featured Group: Students Who Care
As we look back at all the great groups and teams of 2015, it’s also a time to look forward to all the exciting new groups and teams of 2016! For this year’s first featured group, I want to talk about Students Who Care. This is a great group with a great cause. Based out of Kentucky, this club dedicated to charity decided to participate in our Allstate sponsorship program, in an attempt to raise money for a schoolmate fighting against cancer. With about 100 supporters, they were able to rally their group members and others to raise their goal of $500!
According to the American Cancer Society, about 1,658,370 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in 2015. Going through something like this without a support system is inconceivable. In this schoolmate’s case, he/she is lucky to have such a supportive group help out. Thanks to Students Who Care for taking initiative and the support from Allstate, the money raised was donated to the family to assist with medical costs. I think it’s great and I love it when I see groups like these making a difference. Here at Pear, we’re all about community. We love being able to connect groups and teams with big brands like Allstate.
