For most children, the holidays are typically a joyful and magical event looked forward to each year for time spent with family, the abundance of treats and delicious food, the anticipation of Santa Claus delivering gifts, and the excitement for a new year ahead.But for other children, the holidays can be a sad time of year—a reminder that they may not have loving families to celebrate with, no pile of gifts under the tree or food on the table, or little optimism for the coming year. It is these less fortunate children that capSpire has recognized and honored during this season of giving.
This year, capSpire contributed to the following children’s charities, Barnardo’s Children’s Charity and Make-A-Wish® America, on behalf of our clients.
“With our growth and success in 2017, capSpire is delighted to be able to continue our much-beloved holiday tradition of supporting the incredible work of select charities,” says Lance Laubach, capSpire CEO. “Wherever we operate around the world, we strive to be productive participants in our communities and help to improve the circumstances of those around us in need. Especially during the holidays, there are few things more rewarding than donating to causes that transform the lives of children.”As the UK’s leading children’s charity, Barnardo’s safeguards and provides support for a wide range of the most vulnerable members of society:
- Children in need of loving homes through fostering and adoption programs
- Sexually exploited or abused children
- Children who bear primary responsibility in caring for family members who are physically or mentally ill, disabled, or substance abusers
- Children living in poverty
- Children affected by domestic violence
Make-A-Wish gives hope to children with life-threatening medical conditions by granting them a wish of their choosing, whether it’s getting to be a pilot or police officer for a day, getting to meet an admired celebrity, or going to Disney World. Through these experiences, children can forget about the difficulties of their condition and simply focus on being kids, having fun, and finding inspiration. As a result, they can face their treatment with renewed energy. Because of the financial support of donors, Make-A-Wish grants a wish to a critically ill child every 34 minutes.
From all of us at capSpire, we wish our clients a happy holiday season and thank them for their continued partnership that makes our charitable giving possible.
