We partner with the nonprofit organization Cleaning for a Reason! It’s officially October, which means that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Misty Clean supports the cause by offering free house cleanings to women with cancer. Today we’re going to put a highlight on Cleaning for a Reason as well as highlight some facts about breast cancer. Make sure to spread the news on social media and support the cause. Spreading awareness is vital.
About Cleaning for a Reason
Debbie Sardone was the owner of Buckets & Bows Maid Service. One prospective client called inquiring about the cost of house cleaning services. After hearing the quote, the client mentioned going through cancer treatment, declined, and hung up the phone because she could not afford the cleaning services. This client’s story resonated with Debbie because her mom was a cancer patient. Caller I.D. did not exist during these times, so Debbie could not call the woman back, and this prompted her to provide a home cleaning policy if her company encountered a woman with cancer.
In 2005, Debbie began sharing her story with other cleaning companies at the ISSA’s annual trade show (The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association). Fast forward to 2017, and ISSA charities have adopted this nonprofit, expanding its focus to not only women but men and children active cancer treatment. Cleaning for a Reason has 1,200 cleaning partners nationwide and in Canada, including Misty Clean. The office is in Lewisville, TX, with a small staff of volunteers who process over 1,200 patient applications each month. With a donation, you can help provide free house cleanings to households of those battling cancer.
