As the founder of Cure Thrift Shop, whose mission is to raise funds for type 1 diabetes initiatives, and as a type 1 diabetic for most of my life, I would like to personally update you on some exciting changes that are happening at Cure Thrift Shop.
We opened our doors exactly five years ago today - July 26, 2008 - as an obscure little shop with a beautiful array of donated merchandise, generously provided by all of you. Your contributions of furniture, collectibles, art, housewares, clothing - and so much more - brought our store to life and gave it the fantastic reputation that it has today.
Today, I am delighted to announce that Cure Thrift Shop is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are dedicated to providing financial support to worthy organizations who empower type 1 diabetics, raise awareness, and conduct research to find a cure for the disease. Our new organization will enable us to expand the scope of our mission by allowing us to raise funds for worthy type 1 diabetes-focused charities, such as the DRIF, whose cure-focused endeavor we will continue to support. We will also share our resources with other worthy philanthropies, such as our newest recipient, Marjorie’s Fund, whose mission is to empower and provide people living with type 1 diabetes in resource poor settings the medication, equipment, and education needed to survive diagnosis, thrive into adulthood, and live long and healthy lives.
We are in the process of actively seeking other worthwhile and reputable partners and beneficiaries.
Any future donations of sales merchandise, services, or funds that you provide to Cure Thrift Shop will benefit our charity directly and will continue to be 100% tax-deductible.
And of course, shopping at Cure will forever be thrift shop heaven. You’ll always find – and bring home – a great deal on that vintage dress, just the right size sofa, or perfect little painting. Our donations coordinators and design staff are committed to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes – and great finds for you.
I personally guarantee it.
The CURE is out there… let’s find it together.
