Support Cindys Legacy by shopping at AmazonSmile.

Greetings! With the current state of the world right now and much being unknown about when we'll be able to get together again, it's unlikely that we as a charity will be hosting any fundraisers again until 2021. In the meantime, we'll stay busy applying for funding and doing many online campaigns so that we can continue to fund our important mission. But, there is one way that anyone can support us whenever they shop online at Amazon.com! And, we're all doing a lot of that these days. So, the next time you shop please consider using Amazon Smile and selecting Cindy's Legacy! It's a big win-win because you pay nothing! Amazon does the work by donating a small percentage of your total purchase to us. These percentages can certainly add up! Thanks for your support. and, remember you must use the smile.amazon link and choose Cindy's Legacy as your charity of choice.

When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to Cindys Legacy. Support us every time you shop.

This is a tough time for our local businesses right now, especially our favorite restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. Cindy's Legacy has been fortunate over the years to have staunch support from so many of these businesses who've helped with our fundraising efforts by donating cash, goods and services.
.

We simply couldn't do what we do without their help. So, we'd like to take this time to give a shout out to some of those businesses and ask that if you are able to support any of these establishments, or the local businesses in your communities, please do so. They truly need it!
.

We will get through this together. Stay safe and be well! 💝💝

New Universal Tax Break For Charitable Donations Included In Final $2 Trillion COVID-19 Stimulus Package

Beneficial information for our donors this year and for all who have or will make a charitable donation this year... be sure to make note of a benefit included in the new stimulus package. It now let’s non-itemizers take up to a $300 above-the-line charitable income tax deduction for cash donations made in 2020. So, if you take the standard deduction and you give $300 to charity, you’d get the $300 tax break in addition to the standard deduction. Something to keep in mind for next year’s taxes! https://www.forbes.com/sites/ashleaebeling/2020/03/25/new-universal-tax-break-for-charitable-donations-included-in-updated-2-trillion-covid-19-stimulus-bill/#75dd4c4c66a2

The latest stimulus bill includes a tax incentive that charities have been seeking since the Trump tax cuts of 2017 hampered charitable giving.

Hello all! We hope everyone is staying home (if they can) and remaining healthy and safe! We were very much looking forward to our @kendrascott Kendra Gives Back wine down Wednesday in-store fundraiser this week, but as with all events right now, that will have to wait until later in the year.
.
.
But, you can certainly wine down and shop online while still helping to support Cindy’s Legacy. We have so many patients who are in more desperate need than ever as they too face job loss, safety and immense health concerns.
.
.
So, during April 8-9th you can shop kendrascott.com and use the included code to have 20% of your purchase donated back to Cindy’s Legacy. They have wonderful gift items as well for all of the upcoming occasions! So take a peek and see if something catches your eye.

It’s definitely challenging times right now for all of us and while we’ve been trying to maintain our fundraising and grant giving, it’s been hard but today we are happy to be mailing out $1000 in financial aid to cancer patients around the country. They’re all in desperate need of help, now more than ever as they are extremely compromised. We hope to issue more grants in the coming weeks as well! .

Hello from Cindy's Legacy! We hope everyone is doing well and practicing staying home for a little while during this current health pandemic that we're facing. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who supported our fundraiser on March 15th. We were able to host the event with a small group of people and raise some much needed and vital funds for our mission. Many did not attend but graciously asked us to keep their ticket purchase as a donation. We are truly grateful for every penny we raised. Over the next week I will be working to get out some grants to cancer patients who are in financial distress. Let us not lose sight of the fact that these patients are some of the most susceptible to any type of virus, especially the current Covid-19. Anyone going through or having gone through chemotherapy is already dealing with a compromised immune system. So, let us all keep these patients in our prayers and please know that we are continuing to do our vital work (and we've always worked virtually!) for those most vulnerable in our communities. Thanks!

In case you’re ever wondering why we do the work we do...this is it! We helped a man in Florida earlier this year. He was experiencing debilitating side effects from cancer treatments and unable to work, as a result he needed help with some basic living expenses. We were thankful to be able to assit. We can’t do it without support from donors. Please consider a gift today, or register to join us on March 15th for Sip, Savor & Support - Link in Bio or cindyslegacy.org.

Our Story

Cindy’s Legacy is a 501(c)3 charitable organization founded in honor of Cynthia “Cindy” Martin, a Northern Virginia native, long-time community hairstylist, and mother of three who lost her battle to brain cancer in 2011. It is her story that has inspired her family to act... While undergoing intense treatment plans, Cindy not only had to battle cancer and the physical and emotional pain that comes along with it, but because she was unable to work in her profession and lacked adequate health or disability insurance, she and her family were confronted with ongoing anxiety and frustrations while navigating the muddy waters of doctors, hospitals, health insurance providers, patient advocacy groups, and governmental assistance organizations. Despite all of the "resources" out there, very few actually provided the help that was so desperately needed. While some organizations were good at connecting them with resources, there was a lack of actual hands-on assistance. And, while household and medical bills continued to mount because she was unable to work, financial assistance was desperately needed. Cindy’s family vowed that no one should have to wade their way through administrative nightmares, and endure added mental, physical, or financial stress while they are fighting a deadly disease. It is because of this that they decided to start a charity that will lend personal and financial support to cancer fighters and their families, so they can focus on one thing – surviving.
