Here 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

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.

Here at CE Talent, we want our clients to Discover the Difference, but we also want to Make a Difference! We believe in making choices that can help make a difference in our own personal lives as well as others. In doing so, many of us have made the commitment to foster or adopt a four legged friend in need of a caring home and welcome them into our lives. It’s hard to explain the kind of joy that these critters bring, allowing us to not only decompress from our long days of stressful work and travel, but the security and companionship they bring us. Who doesn’t love to be greeted at the door by a swarm of wagging tails and loving kisses?! Sadly not everyone is currently properly situated to foster or adopt a pet at this stage in life to enjoy this kind of love and affection for the thousands of animals out there in need of a good loving home.
CE Talent recognizes all of this and is very excited to report that we have chosen to focus our time and treasure throughout 2016 in helping to make a difference in the lives of as many canine friends and human family’s as possible through an organization by the name of 2DaRescue. Here is their latest NEWSLETTER. 2DaRescue is an all-volunteer non-profit organization who rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs that have been abandoned. Partnering with local municipalities, outlying county shelters, and state wide Indian Reservations, 2DaRescue takes dogs in who are scheduled to be euthanized due to the lack of time and lack of resources available to care for them. Being an all-volunteer registered 501c3 non-profit organization, 100% of all donations are tax deductible and go DIRECTLY to the care and well-being of these animals. No salaries or bonuses are paid to any of the hard working individuals who have dedicated their lives and spend a large majority of their time away from their homes and families caring for these beautiful animals. Their mission is simply to save as many dogs as they possibly can. Our goal here at CE Talent is to help support them in finding forever homes for as many of these dogs as possible. We hope to be able to make a difference in not only as many canine lives as possible, but as many humane lives as well!
How can you help? CE Talent will work with 2DaRescue in a variety of ways to help make them as successful as they can possibly be so they can in turn save as many dogs as they possibly can. Here are some ways you can help.
*Donate directly to them at DONATE
*Purchase a comfy bed at DOG BEDS

*Donate a portion of your payment from CE

CE Talent will be implementing an option into talent contracts that will allow you to designate either a percentage or dollar amount 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! We are working hard to get the contracts updated but in the meantime, 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.

Most people know that even one person can change the world. Well, the same can go for a business. Giving back isn’t just about donating money; it’s about investing and advocating for a cause. A business is never too small (or big) to make a difference.
Why should people give?
We all know giving helps others. However, did you know studies show that giving is also good for the giver? For most people, volunteering, financially supporting a good cause or performing charitable acts triggers the release of oxytocin into the bloodstream. That in turn reduces anxiety levels and induces feelings of warmth, euphoria and connection to others. Health researcher Stephen G. Post said, “the impact of giving is just as significant as not smoking and avoiding obesity.” According to a 2006 study published in the International Journal of Psychophysiology, people who gave their time to help others through community and organizational involvement had greater self-esteem, lower blood pressure, less depression and lower stress levels than those who didn’t.
Why does CE Talent give?
We give because we are inspired to and hope to inspire others as well.
We give because just like we want our clients to “Discover the Difference”, we also want to “Make a Difference”.
We give because we believe it is the right thing to do and like everything we do we try to lead by example.
We give because many of our staff (particularly our President) have been on the receiving end of generosity when in a time of need.
And of course, we give because we can.
How does CE give back?
Check out our Giving page to see what projects and charities we have and are working with. We have a volunteer team of people looking for more projects we can support. Some will be time such as volunteer opportunities. Some will be talent, such as utilizing our gifts to help others or donating or reducing rates for sending our talent to events. Some will be treasure, such as sponsoring international children, matching donation dollars or writing a check for a good cause.
How can you give?
You don’t need to make a certain amount of money or have limitless time and resources. Sometimes even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference (even for you). You could pay more compliments to lift someone’s day. Maybe give a meal for a homeless person. How about you spend an hour working on a puzzle or craft with your (or someone’s grandma). You can offer to spend an hour helping around the house of an overwhelmed friend or loved one. Maybe you could just pass along the needs of those you know to others who may be able to help. It truly doesn’t matter how or what you give. Just know that every gift makes a difference.
