Company Gives Back By Giving Out Backpacks to Homeless

Instant Checkmate Inc. became the first corporate sponsor of the Arizona-based nonprofit reKindle by launching a companywide donation drive, collecting backpacks, food and other supplies in preparation for a unique, guerilla-style distribution event with the reKindle charity. A team of staff and volunteers spent the day walking through downtown San Diego, passing out more than 100 backpacks filled with supplies to the area’s homeless individuals.

The reKindle charity is a family-run operation co-founded by Chris Hooley, Instant Checkmate’s search marketing consultant and his 10-year-old daughter, Kaylee. Last summer they decided to launch a national movement to help the homeless. Any business, organization, group or school can launch its own “I Got Your Back” backpack drive. All it takes is the desire to make a difference. To learn how you can get involved with reKindle, visit the organization’s “How You Can Help” page.

One Love San Diego, an organization focused on helping at-risk and homeless youth, announced it raised $11,000 at “Yoga Glow in the Night,”a charity event benefitting Monarch School. More than 350 individuals gathered in the school’s gymnasium to learn about the cause and engage in a two-hour yoga session. One Love partnered with Fitn, which made a $50 donation to Monarch School for every person who signed up on its website by May 31. Furthermore, for each signup, Fitn will donate $1 per workout to Monarch School.

The Clif Bar Family Foundation gave an $8000 grant to local nonprofit, Sustainable Surplus Exchange. The two organizations share several parallel missions — reducing waste while conserving resources and producing green jobs. Sustainable Surplus diverts unnecessary corporate waste from the landfills by providing companies a direct channel to repurpose their out-of-use assets to local schools and nonprofit organizations. SSE has repurposed $1 million of assets to more than 240 local organizations since its launch in 2011. This effort kept 200,000 pounds of still-useful items from going to the landfill.
