Rebelle is Aiming Higher. Through our parent company, Community Growth Partners (CGP), we are launching a new initiative: CGP Cares. We aim to support neighbors and nonprofit organizations which share our mission of making a positive impact in our communities. CGP Cares will support a different organization each month, organizations are nominated by staff.
Our founder & CEO, Charlotte Hanna, launched CGP Cares as an extension of work in her early career. In a letter to employees, she says, “The early part of my career was spent working on hunger relief and homelessness – getting people off the street and in shelters, feeding people and launching all kinds of programs to help combat poverty. The way we do business at CGP is just another extension of this work. I want to give all of you the opportunity to give back and support organizations in the community where we operate – helping others just feels good and is needed today more then ever.”
From February 1 through March 3, 2022, CGP Cares will be supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Customers and employees may donate at checkout; all donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Community Growth Partners.
LLS was nominated by James Zafiros, because “everyone wins when cancer loses. Thanks to your support, we will help fund therapies and treatments that are saving lives. Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers. Many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day. We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers!”
