Cleaning For A Reason
Cleaning For A Reason Week was established in 2009 to raise awareness about our organization that provides free house cleaning for women undergoing treatment for cancer.
Maid OK is honored to be working with Cleaning For A Reason by serving women with cancer. This nonprofit is very dear to our hearts.
Since Maid OK has teamed up with them since December of 2015, we have helped 10 ladies with cleanings. I personally have never met any of them, but I have gotten close to a few of them just talking to them over the phone.
Every time I talked to these ladies, they were and are always very appreciated with the help we are offering them. I cannot imagine what these girls are going through, but I am happy that we can help them out in such a small way!
One of the ladies that I talk with about every two weeks or so is named Sandra B. Here is our stories:
Sandra and I met through Facebook when I was giving away a free cleaning. She commented on the post that she was a cancer patient and that she could really use our service.
I try my hardest to engage with the comments on our Maid OK Facebook page, and I am glad I was able to with her. I explained to her that if she was not the winner, Maid OK would love to help her out and I gave her my email address so we could correspond with each other privately.
I sent her the link to sign up for Cleaning For a Reason and if she needed any help, I would help out any way possible. She unfortunately did not win the drawing, but her and I built a relationship beyond Facebook.
I have talked to her on the phone a few times, but she and I have a really good email relationship.
What Sandra says about Maid OK
Here is what she had to say about Maid OK and about Cleaning For a Reason:
Maid OK has been a blessing to me! I have been undergoing chemo for stage 4 colon cancer for about six months, and it really takes all the wind out of my sails.
The ladies at Maid OK have been coming once a month to clean, mop, sweep, dust, etc. and I have enjoyed them being in my home. They are courteous, very friendly and do a wonderful job.
My house is so nice when they are finished. For them to be a part of Cleaning For A Reason is such a huge hearted effort to assist people who need to concentrate on getting well and not on how clean the house is.
For me, it means I can save my energy for the things that have become very important. Thank you Maid OK for offering this service and for making my life easier. And thank you to my ladies who come, they are the sweetest women, bless you all.
Why We Do This
This is why we at Maid OK do what we do. It is not just one person, it takes a village to make sure all this runs in a smooth motion.
If you know anyone in need of this service, please have them reach out to Maid OK or Cleaning For A Reason. There are several cleaning companies in the metro that also do this.
