CushionSource.com, the nation’s largest online retailer of custom cushions, announced today that it has continued its commitment to corporate social responsibility by donating 10% of proceeds from recent Patriot Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month promotions to the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Breast Cancer Foundation, respectively.
“One of our fundamental beliefs is that we have a corporate responsibility to give back to our community,” said Gerry Monroe, President and CEO of Online Commerce Group, LLC, Cushion Source’s parent company. “We can find no better way to do that than to support outstanding organizations such as these that so closely impact the lives of our team members and our customers. We consider it a privilege to help in some small part to extend the work they do,” he said.
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a desire to provide comfort items to wounded service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has grown into a holistic rehabilitative effort to assist warriors with visible and invisible wounds as they recover and transition back to civilian life. WWP’s mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors, and its vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. Due to generous donations and volunteers, tens of thousands of wounded service members, family members, and caregivers receive support each year through WWP programs.

The American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) provides financial assistance for breast cancer screenings and diagnostic tests for uninsured and underserved individuals, regardless of age or gender. ABCF maintains partnerships with medical clinics in metropolitan areas by funding breast cancer screenings, serving over 17,311 patients and providing over 24,710 grants for screenings since 2007. ABCF relies on donations and sponsorships to reduce screening and treatment costs for those in need, and to continue its efforts to educate the public on the importance of breast self-examinations for early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
