CE Gives Back

The purpose of any business is to find a need and fill it.  It is important to all of us working with CE Talent to take that to the next level by finding needs we can fill by giving of our Time, Talent & Treasure.  We give because just like we want our clients to “Discover the Difference”, we also want to “Make a Difference”.  We have been inspired to and hope to inspire others as well.  Therefore we are going to pledge 10% of our annual net profits to worthy causes.  To start with, we will choose a new charitable organization every year to support.  We will match any donation brought in by talent, clients, staff or friends of CE Talent up to our allotted amount.  These charities will be selected by our volunteer panel based on suggestions from clients, talent & staff.  We prefer more local or smaller charities where the money can go to the most use.  Though organizations like Red Cross, American Cancer Society, United Way and other charity giants are wonderful, we think we can make more of an impact on some smaller ones.  If you think you have a great cause, charitable event, or volunteering opportunity, please contact us at difference@cetalent.com

 

Featured Organization

DA8 StrongHere at CE Talent, we are very excited to report that we have chosen to focus our time, talent and treasure in helping to make a difference in the lives of as many cancer patients and families as possible through an organization by the name of DA8 Strong. The founding story of DA8 Strong is one of triumph and blessings during  a time when the Abbott family needed love and support the most. The outpouring of support from not only friends and family but from within the community was so significant that they were able to regain a quality of life that was so quickly taken from them.  Through all the trials that even continue to this day, they have felt a strong calling to be able to pay it forward to help others reclaim their quality of life as well! Our goal here at CE Talent is to help support them with their mission to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families through charitable support, recreation and services at a time when life may seem to be getting the best of them. This foundation provides support through meal delivery, household bills, handyman services, house cleaning, transportation assistance, fitness, wigs, family recreation & much more. We hope to assist in making a difference in not only the lives of the cancer patients, but the family members as well!

 

How can you help?  CE Talent will be looking to work with the DA8 Strong foundation in a variety of ways to help make them as successful as they can possibly be so in turn they can help as many people as possible.  Here are some ways you can help.

            *Donate directly to them at DONATE

            *Donate a portion of your payment from CE Talent

            *Volunteer your time to cancer patients in need either here in Phoenix, or fundraisers held throughout the US

            *Contribute products or services by contacting DA8 Strong directly at CONTACT DA8 Strong

            *Host a Fundraiser in your community to help raise funds

             

Just as before, CE Talent has an option in our talent contracts that allows you to designate a portion of your contracted total to go towards our selected charity. Our commitment to you is that we will match 100% of your donations throughout the year! 100% of all donations are tax deductible and go DIRECTLY to the care and well-being of these families. Please be on the lookout for a reminder prior to receiving your checks which will give you an opportunity at that time to help contribute to this amazing cause.  If you have any questions, please contact us at difference@cetalent.com and we’ll be happy to share more with you and our plans moving forward.

 

Time & Talent

CE Volunteers. 1.Sjpg.jpgCE Talent had an office retreat with a few of our top execs.  While deciding the direction of CE and how we can be even better for our clients and talent we also took some time to go to an assisted living facility that specializes in people with Alzheimer's & Dementia to volunteer.  We were told the thing most people enjoyed was to have their nails painted.  So out team did just that.

In addition, because they loved entertainment, we also did some a cappella singing.  Some of us sang in a group together at Universal Studios, others have sung professionally in other venues around the world.  We sang some oldies and Americana songs, we even took a few requests. We closed the evening out with Amazing Grace right as dinner was being served.  It was so wonderful to bring some joy to a group of people often forgotten!


GKTW.JPGWe were lucky enough to be contacted by a company putting on a fundraising event for Give Kids the World.  We provided talent at a deeply reduced rate to help their event which was especially near and dear to our President and Director of Talent Management's hearts.  They both use to volunteer there before moving to Arizona.  Give Kids The World is a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.  Over 134,000 children have had their dream come true at Give Kids The World. No child in need has ever been turned away – and no child ever will. Give Kids The World is a place where families find joy, laughter, serenity, and a lifetime of memories. 


Treasure

CE Talent Sponsors 3 children from impoverished places in Asia, Africa and South America. We work with World Vision & Compassion. The children these organizations serve receive, among other things: regular training; educational opportunities and help; health care, hygiene training and supplementary food if necessary; a caring and safe environment to grow in self-confidence and social skills; personal attention, guidance and love.   Though with our support, these children get health care, education as well as food and other necessities. However, we are told what really impacts them is to receive letters of hope and encouragement.  If you would like to write a letter to one of these young kids, please put "Letter for Niesa, Andres, or Helen" in the subject line and email your letter difference@cetalent.com.  You can even include a picture!
