StorQuest, a self-storage operator with more than 35 facilities throughout Arizona, California, Colorado and Hawaii, is on a mission to raise $10,000 to fund cancer research. Every time a customer or potential customer interacts with the company via Facebook and Twitter, it will donate $1 to Kure It, a nonprofit dedicated to funding innovative kidney and other cancer research.
On Facebook, users must "like" StorQuest or comment on a post. On Twitter, they must follow the company or retweet a link. Every time they do, $1 will be added to the donation total.

Kure It was created by Barry Hoeven, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 1998. In April 2007, Hoeven partnered with cancer center City of Hope to create the Kure It! Kidney Cancer Research Fund, which raised more than $400,000. Kure It Inc. was established in January 2010 as an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Its goal is to be the leader in granting funds to cancer researchers investigating progressive treatments and cures.
