I'm Cameron, a teacher who left the classroom after 11 years to pursue a dream and launch my own business, Charity Crate, a monthly subscription box that dedicated to putting a spotlight on deserving yet relatively unknown charities. Ask me anything!
I was a history teacher for 11 years and finally after a lot of soul searching, I took a leap of faith, burned my ships, and left the profession this past May to start my own business. Something I've always wanted to do but never had success in doing. I saw how popular subscription boxes had become and was introduced to a real need by charities and non-profits to connect with donors that then gave me a simple idea.
How to make charity fun and exciting?
It's been scary (no backup plans) , it's been exciting, it's been nerve-wracking, but after a summer's worth of work I launched my own start up!
Charity Crate is a monthly subscription box devoted to charities. Each box not only comes with a shirt and great swag from a deserving charity, but a 60% donation that goes straight back to them! It's a great way to discover new charities for the causes you are passionate about, but also helps raise social awareness and funds at the same time. Think of it as kinda like a mini Kickstarter for charities!
So yeah, I'm an educator, newbie entrepreneur, single father and Dutch Brothers coffee drinker. Ask me anything!
