Cleaning for a reason

I just came across a great resource: Cleaning for a reason.  They are a non profit organization that serves the entire United States and Canada. They partner with maid services to offer professional house cleanings free of charge to help women undergoing treatment for cancer.

To date, they have helped more than 9,000 women with cleaning their homes with more than $1 million worth in donated cleanings.

The service offers cleaning of your house once a month for four months during treatment.  To sign up, you need to register on the website and then have your doctor fax them to say you are in treatment for cancer.  It's as easy as that.

Here's a (old) youtube of Oprah talking about the service in 2009 (thus the numbers are different from that quoted here)

What a wonderful service for those who are struggling through cancer and its treatment.

They are always looking for new cleaning services to volunteer their time, and also for donations to support their work.
