It’s difficult to write this, or to explain why we’re doing what we’re doing, without it sounding pretentious. I was blessed with probably one of the best opportunities a kid could have – great schools, great parents, affluence – but also exposure.
That exposure lead me to see that there’s a lot of crap in the world that people have to suffer through. That a neighbor down the street wasn’t dealt the same hand I was.
I know it doesn’t make it even. But this organization is dedicated to going beyond marketing. We at Crunchy Links are here to help people who could use a lift, and bless them with similar opportunities we were blessed with. Most importantly, we’re about leaving this place better than we found it. About leaving people better than when we found them.
We firmly believe one good act always begets another. And we would love for others to get involved too. So please let us know what cause you care about, and we’d be happy to lend a hand.
We at Crunchy Links understand we were dealt an amazing hand in this life. It’s time we share that wealth.

Since COVID-19 hit hard in our area, all local businesses have shut down operations, which means that most will have to shutter their doors permanently. A significant amount of those small businesses are all those families have.
So I’m doing what I can to directly help these families so they can survive the time they have without income. That includes purchasing and delivering supplies like toilet paper, baby wipes, diapers, food, and medicine.
Sometimes I claim it’s because I believe that “with great power comes great responsibility.” Sometimes I tell them it’s because “to whom much is given much is expected.” Really, though, giving back in both time and money is just the right f*****g thing to do. I’ve been lucky to make it from modest beginnings and own part of a company. I feel it’s right that I find ways to help others who don’t have the means to help themselves just yet

Some stats from the NIH:
“In 2019, roughly 1.8 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States. An estimated 268,600 women and 2,670 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer, which makes it the most common cancer diagnosis. Lung and bronchus cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosis with an estimated 228,150 new cases. Prostate cancer is the leading cancer diagnosis among men and the third most common diagnosis overall with 174,650 expected cases.”
Long story short, cancer f*****g sucks. Too many lives are taken because of cancer. I wanna do my part.
That’s why my donation this quarter is going to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
