Self-storage call center and marketing firm PhoneSmart donated $500 on Dec. 8 to Kure It, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to funding innovative kidney and other cancer research. It was the first company to use Kure It’s newly established online-donation button, created at Kureit.org so supporters to set up one-time or recurring contributions.
“PhoneSmart is very happy to be the first to take advantage of Kure It’s new easy donate-online service,” said director Tron Jordheim. “We hope many others will follow our lead.”
PhoneSmart is also designating Kure It as a charitable partner for its Hawaii Un-Conference, June 2-6, at the Mauni Lani Resort on Big Island.
PhoneSmart is an offsite sales team dedicated to helping rental-property owners increase their occupancies through better sales, marketing and lead management.
Kure It raises money from the private sector and redirects those funds through competitive grants to kidney and other cancer researchers. The organization’s goal is to lead the self-storage industry in raising $1 million for cancer research in 2011.
