Fundraising is important to us at The Zen Shop. Zen Shop owner, Sherrill Rees knows first hand how difficult fundraising can be. She and her husband lost everything to a devastating house fire in 2010, just a week before their son was born. “Fundraising is tough,” says Sherrill, about her attempt to build a charitable organization for Fire Survivors. “There are so many amazing people donating their time in our community in addition to the many sad events that happen everyday. I feel called to do my share and help where I can. My staff feels the same way. I want my business to give back.”
In addition to the monetary benefits of fundraising, did you know that studies have proved that “giving” makes us feel good?
