With a mission to encourage the health and happiness of pediatric cancer patients, the Toby Keith Foundation supports and operates OK Kids Korral, a home for children battling cancer. OK Kids Korral provides a cost-free, convenient and comfortable home for pediatric cancer patients receiving treatment at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center, Peggy & Charles Stephenson Cancer Center and other nearby facilities.
The Toby Keith Foundation chose to adopt the Charity Charge Nonprofit Business Card as their payment method of choice for business expenses. When we asked Executive Director Juliet Nees-Bright why the foundation chose our credit card, she said:
It’s important to look for revenue generation that is unexpected, but makes perfect sense. We signed up because we do occasionally have to make purchases on our business cards. If we can make money for our foundation while doing what we have to do anyway, it’s a win-win situation.
The Toby Keith Foundation is a new credit card holder, but Juliet has already been impressed with the high-quality customer service she has received from Charity Charge. “We are relatively new to using the card, but the customer service we have received from Charity Charge has been reassuring and unexpected.”
Cancer places a heavy burden on the state of Oklahoma, affecting one out of three Oklahomans during their lifetime. Despite significant progress in recent years, childhood cancer is responsible for killing more children and teenagers every year than any other disease. Juliet is passionate about her work at The Toby Keith Foundation and said:
The Toby Keith Foundation helps children battling cancer and their families. Before we opened OK Kids Korral, our cost-free home for pediatric cancer patients, I knew that we would be helping families financially and physically. That felt like a strong mission statement, but I underestimated the relationship part of fighting cancer. Now that we’ve been open for over 5 years, I can tell you that the emotional support that is shared under our roof is both humbling and life-changing. My passion for families battling cancer is constantly renewed as I witness strength beyond reason and kindness beyond measure. We are the fortunate ones as we get to be a part of our Korral families’ lives.
The Toby Keith Foundation believes there is no greater gift than keeping families strong and together during a difficult time. We encourage you to learn more and get involved with The Toby Keith Foundation in providing an amazing home-away-from-home for youth battling cancer and their loved ones.
