The Jessie Rees Foundation is fortunate to continue Jessie’s legacy with the help of Compassionate Corporations like Pacific Life. Over the past two years, the Jessie Rees Foundation teamed up with the Pacific Life Foundation to collectively stuff, pack and ship 25,000 JoyJars® to brighten the spirits of Courageous Kids around the globe during their battle against cancer.
This year’s second-annual Pacific Life Employee Week of Service program, held every November, allowed for more than 1,500 Pacific Life employees to volunteer during their workday at the Aliso Viejo, Newport Beach, and Omaha offices to fill 15,000 of Jessie’s JoyJars to send to kids fighting cancer around the world. Offices in Virgina and Washington also participated in spreading Jessie’s JOY with special notes of encouragement!
It was Jessie’s Wish to “help every kid fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up!” and generous contributions from private donors and corporations like Pacific Life have enabled the Jessie Rees Foundation to send more than 150,000 JoyJars to kids fighting cancer around the world.
The Mobile JoyFactory brings the JoyFactory to YOU! It stops in all 50 states and has already visited the offices of compassionate corporations like…Anthem, UPS, American Airlines, COX, Applied Medical, DeVita and Baxalta. Help spread JOY to Courageous Kids fighting cancer…Be our next stop!
