On February 13th, members from the TQE team did some volunteer work for the Children’s Cancer Association. The CCA is in Portland, Oregon and they provide programs and resources to children with cancer all across the nation.
Each Valentine’s Day the CCA hosts a telethon to raise money for the children, and this year TQE got to participate! We showed up at 5 AM on Monday morning and were ready to answer some phones. We spent the next 4 hours answering phones and taking donations from those who called in. It was a great experience, as we got to hear stories from children who had been helped by the CCA and people calling in who had been touched by cancer in some way and wanted to express their gratitude.
We had a great time and will definately want to participate in this event in the future. During their 2 day telethon, the CCA was able to raise over $440k for the children in their programs! TQE is proud to have been a part of such a great event and we look forward to next year.
