For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

At some point in life we all find ourselves in dark or difficult times, not knowing which path to take or how we can make it through another day with the burdens that weigh us down.   Many times it is simple acts of kindness from a stranger that sustains us and renew our hope for a brighter future.

In our desire to bring hope to others we contribute $10.00 from every inspection that we perform, on your behalf, toward one of our approved "A rated" charities.  Below is a brief description of these charities, we encourage you to visit their website for more information.

 

Charities We Support...and Why

 

Breast Cancer Research Foundation - The mission of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.

Toy's for Tots - Toys for Tots began in 1947 when Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The idea came from Bill's wife, Diane. In the fall of 1947, Diane handcrafted a Raggedy Ann doll and asked Bill to deliver the doll to an organization, which would give it to a needy child at Christmas. When Bill determined that no agency existed, Diane told Bill that he should start one. He did. The 1947 pilot project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign. Over the 59 years of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, Marines have distributed more than 370 million toys to more than 173 million needy children.

Intrepid Fallen Hero's Fund - Begun in 2000 under the auspices of the Intrepid Museum Foundation, and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided close to $60 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. These efforts are funded entirely with donations from the public, and hundreds of thousands of individuals have contributed to the Fund. 100% of contributions raised by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund go towards these programs; all administrative expenses are underwritten by the Fund’s Trustees.   From 2000 to 2005 the Fund provided close to $20 million to families of United States military personnel lost in performance of their duty, mostly in service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Lupus Foundation - Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, heart, lungs, blood, kidneys and brain. In an autoimmune disorder like lupus, the immune system cannot tell the difference between foreign substances and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against itself. The Lupus Foundation of America (LFA) estimates between 1.5 - 2 million Americans have a form of lupus, but the actual number may be higher. More than 90 percent of people with lupus are women. Symptoms and diagnosis occur most often when women are in their child-bearing years, between the ages of 15 and 45.  In the United States, lupus is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans than in Caucasians.

Hide & Seek Foundation - Lysosomal [ly-so-so-muhl] Disease is a family of rare and devastating genetic disorders that affects tens of thousands of people – mostly children – around the world.  At least once every half hour, a child is born with Lysosomal Disease.  It is a disease for which there is no cure.  Hide & Seek's research program focuses on developing innovative therapies to treat Lysosomal Disease within a discreet time frame.

Christian Law Association - The Christian Law Association is a "ministry of legal helps." Its purpose is to provide free legal assistance to Bible-believing churches and Christians who are experiencing legal difficulty in practicing their religious faith because of governmental regulation, intrusion, or prohibition of one form or another. CLA legal missionary attorneys and support staff do not bill for their time, regardless of whether the person or ministry seeking our assistance financially supports CLA.

Make A Wish Foundation - The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 161,000 children around the world. Although it has become one of the world's most well-known charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has maintained the grassroots fulfillment of its mission.

Our commitment in helping others is simply this; if we fail to ask you which charitable organization you would have us donate, your inspection is FREE!
