Monthly Charitable Gift Program
Frame USA is dedicated to helping those in need. As part of our Monthly Charitable Gift Program, we support local and national charities by donating money, time and other needed resources. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for a variety of deserving charities.
As part of our Monthly Charitable Gift Program, we pick one charity each month and donate $0.75 for every purchase of picture frames
made on our website and $1.00 for custom frame orders taken in through our local retail store. We also collect donations from our customers, vendors and key partners.
May 2015 Charity
I don’t think there is a single person alive that doesn't enjoy a beautiful day in the sun. Sunlight makes you happy, it makes you feel better, it gives those that face harsh winters, hope, and there is a good chance that without proper protection it could kill you. As a kid your mother would pin you down as you squirm and wiggle to slather on sunscreen to protect your precious skin. As with many things in life, this is something that we all could learn from our mothers.
According to Skincancer.org, one person dies of melanoma every 57 minutes. Back in 2010 that person that tragically lost his battle with melanoma was Andy Caress at the young age of 24. Andy wasn't your typical 24 year old, he was a fighter. In the midst of treatment he created a foundation called Mela-KNOW-More. As he was getting radiation treatments, surgeries, and bio-chemo therapy, he was changing the misconception of melanoma to the public.
He made it his mission to educate the world so that no one was ever impacted by this terrible disease the way that he was impacted by it. After his tragic death, the foundation continues to carry on this mission.
To help with the mission, Frame USA will be donating to The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation in appreciation for your online order for the month of May.
From their website:
“In August of 2010, Andy Caress lost his battle with this deadly disease. His foundation carries his mission forward to prevent this dreadful form of cancer from impacting the lives of others. We invite you to keep Andy’s Mission alive and become a contributor to this very important cause. With your support we will make Andy’s goal a reality!
The Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation is dedicated to the prevention of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, through awareness, education and support of research to find a cure. ”
