PureB2B Partners with Melanoma Research Foundation for 2020 Charitable Donation
December 22, 2020
2020 has been a hard year all around. We’ve felt it too. PureB2B, every holiday season, has made an effort to donate to various charities around the globe. This year was no different. In fact, we decided to increase it by allowing our top preforming sales rep, Tim Christiansen, to choose what charity our largest donation went to. Tim, a PureB2B sales veteran, has been with the company since the early days of the sales organization’s creation. “…Tim’s teamwork driven process-based approach really exemplifies our culture. It’s been awesome to be part of Tim’s growth journey at PureB2B, culminating in what has been a banner performance year for him.” – Chris Rack, PureB2B President.
Melanoma is a skin cancer that affects over 200,000 people in the US per year, and treatments can often times require surgery and chemotherapy. The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF) is the largest independent organization devoted to melanoma. The MRF is an active advocate for the melanoma community, helping to raise awareness of this disease and the need for a cure. Their mission is to eradicate melanoma by accelerating medical RESEARCH while EDUCATING to and ADVOCATING for the melanoma community. – Melanoma Research Foundation. The MRF has tons of information and education materials on melanoma and cancer. We encourage our readers and followers to take a look at their website to learn more about this cancerous disease and how you can help fight it.
When contacted about why he chose this organization to donate to, Tim had this to say, “Cancer has affected most people, and melanoma is a sneaky cancer as it is not always easy to identify. While sun exposure is the primary cause, it’s not the only cause. If caught early, it’s very curable, and if not, it can be deadly. This is something my family experienced personally the hard way, but we were one of the lucky ones. Because of the work and dedication of organizations like the Melanoma Research Foundation, great strides have been made to launch new and effective therapies. More work needs to be done – through education and research perhaps metastatic melanoma can be eradicated.”
As we close out this record-breaking year for PureB2B, the ideas of #behuman and InspireToAct remain ever-present in throughout corporate halls. Supporting the human initiative has always been something our company has focused on, and we maintained that focus through all of 2020. With our company goals set for 2021, we’ll continue to push for the humble growth and people-first attitude that has gotten the organization to where it is today.
