Every Tuesday, Cupcake Jones donates 5% of total sales to a different no profit organization. This week, our beneficiary is Marathon Education Partners.
I learned about them from one of our regular customers who is involved in their work. It is an incredible organization that uses unique methods of long term partnership to support children with financial need who want to pursue higher education.
A bit about them from their web site:
Marathon Education Partners strives to provide encouragement, guidance, and a higher education scholarship opportunity to children with financial need. Our program matches individuals and families (Partners) who want to give back to their communities by sharing their experience and knowledge with children (Scholars) through the crucial stages of their educational development.
Since Marathon’s founding on September 11, 2002 through March 2008, 90 Partners have joined together to help 54 children in the Portland, Vancouver and Pendleton schools reach their goal of obtaining higher education.”
