Smokeball achieved their fundraising goal and donated $8,000 to the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children during the Season of Giving promotion. For each Smokeball demonstration completed by one of Smokeball’s software specialists during the Season of Giving, Smokeball pledged to donate to CASA. With the support of Smokeball team members, Smokeball users, and community members, Smokeball hit their goal of raising $8,000 for CASA.
Support Team’s Caitlin Bixby is proud of Smokeball’s strong community partnerships: “I take comfort knowing that I work for a company that supports a cause that gives a voice to those who are so often silenced. Smokeball values its community inside and out, and it shows.”
Smokeball’s mission statement is to help small firms run successful businesses so that they can better serve our communities. With that mission in mind, Smokeball values community relationship-building, which lead to Smokeball’s relationship with CASA of Cook County. Smokeball is proud to partner with CASA because CASA has a direct impact on children in the court and foster systems.
Ian Sperry, an Account Manager with Smokeball, participated in Smokeball’s Season of Giving: “Matching demonstrations with donations was an incredible opportunity for Smokeball to both help small law firms better serve their communities and serve our community as well.”
CASA’s mission is “to advance and safeguard the best interest of the children who have experienced abuse or neglect, involved in the court system, by utilizing trained volunteers who advocate for them in court, school and in their community.” By partnering with CASA of Cook County, Smokeball is able to make a direct impact in their Chicago community by enabling CASA to train more advocates for children.
