Serving those with Breast Cancer
We here at Clean Corp are so excited to announce our continuous support and commitment to Cleaning For a Reason (C4R), a nonprofit organization that partners with professional residential maid services all over the country who are insured and bonded to participate in the foundation in helping those with breast cancer. Every 90 minutes, a patient who has cancer is matched with a housekeeping service that will provide a free professional housecleaning. Thanks to Cleaning For a Reason, many of those who are faced with the battle of fighting such a terrible sickness now have the burden of house cleaning removed from their list of things to do. The cleaning companies have agreed to take 2 patients at a time and offer four free general cleanings, once a month for four months as a way to give back to their community. All breast cancer patients are welcomed to apply, regardless of economic status.
It's not an easy task to fight cancer, and this foundation is making a difference one home at a time. So far, over 11,000 women have been helped, and with over 1000 housekeeping services partnering with Cleaning For a Reason the foundation has surpassed the $2 million mark in donated cleanings and counting. It's such an honor for us at Clean Corp to be a part of such a meaningful organization.
"It's very rewarding to be a part of something that has helped so many women," says Debbie Sardone, the founder of Cleaning For a Reason. She started the nonprofit six years ago after realizing there were so many women battling cancer who didn't have the time or energy for housekeeping and who couldn't afford to have their homes professionally cleaned. She says she wants women to be able to focus on their health, not their housework.
Cleaning For a Reason gives those who are dealing with the stress that comes with breast cancer one less thing to worry about. Some patients are too weak to clean their own homes and it makes them feel good to come home to a clean home after treatments. One client of ours said "You all are such a blessing to me while I'm going through this difficult time in my life. I can't tell you how much it means to me see the cleaning crew come in with their beautiful smiles and warm hearts. It's more than a house cleaning to me when they arrive. They were such a pleasure at each visit. They left my cleaning sparkling! I can't thank you and the company enough."

There are many reasons that checking your roof before the major storms get here. One of the main reasons is you don't know if you have roofing leak until it's too late. We highly suggest a having a roofing contractor inspect your roof before the next major storm comes.
Having your roof inspected by a certified licensed roofing contractor could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Most roofing contractors will be able to repair any minor damage that occurred over the winter within minutes.
Crowdfunding with Kickstarter.com

Rajshel Juhan never planed on being a work at home mom, but when she was let go of her Asst. creative Director position just two weeks away from her due date she new that hitting the pavement and looking for another full time job would have to wait. Shortly after the birth of her son she took over as dispatcher for her husbands towing company, but it did not fill her creative void. Rajshel had recently launched Jane hancock papers but the company had become more of a hobby during her pregnancy. She decided to put all her extra energy and time (their was not much) into the company. After three years she has seen some small success with her items being sold regularly on etsy and in two different boutiques she has also been featured in several books, magazines and blogs.
This dynamic owner is now primed and ready to take the company to the next level, but she needs a little help and so she has launched a Kickstarter.com project: http://kck.st/wKQ6vF
"I'm ready to make people stand up and take notice of this independent stationery company", she says. Using the internet like many other start-ups and entrepreneurs are now doing, the company launched there kickstarter.com campaign on February 20th, 2012 and hopes to raise 7,000 or more at the conclusion just a short 34 days later.
The funding will allow the company to create a completely new line of paper based products such as note cards, bookmarks and notebooks to name a few. Also in the works is a line of home & gift items like placemats, tote bags, wall prints and napkins. If 100% funding is reached the company will display their new line at the 2013 National Stationery Show in NYC where buyers from all over the word come to shop for their boutiques, stationery & gift shops.

$25 J. Jill, Eileen Fisher, etc (many new never worn) The Drake Closet is the best news for husbands since Playtex gloves! This new resale boutique, benefitting The Drake House, is full of stylish, gently used and sometimes brand new, name brand women's clothing for a steal. Shoppers will not be surprised to find items from J Jill, Talbots, Chico's, Eileen Fisher, Ann Taylor, and a variety of top shoe and boot brands. And don't be surprised if the treasure hunt also results in a big name find, like Joe Jeans or Coach or a new item with the tags still on! True shoppers will delight in donating items they have grown tired of looking at, and replacing them with new apparel to put that bounce in their step! With the holidays approaching there might even be the perfect item to wow everyone at the office or neighborhood party.
"I bought 10 items – all still with the tags on them – for $75" – a very happy Alpharetta mom (true story)

Today I received your 7/18 "violation notice" in the mail. It refers to a "towel" hanging in our front window, visible from the street.
It's not a towel. It's a Marine Corps flag. Our 19 year old son is a Lance Corporal on active duty. He's a graduate of Alpharetta High School. A friend gave it to him as a gift after he completed basic training. We miss him, but it's better that he's not here to witness this.
Perhaps you will tell me that you mistook a Marine Corps flag for a "towel" during your "inspection". That's forgivable. But if you tell us that we must take it down or you will fine us, that would be shameful.
