READING, MA – Today Rachel Marolda and her charity, Crystals for a Cause, accepted a generous donation from Reading Co-operative Bank. One Friday a month employees are invited to dress more casually in exchange for a $5 donation towards a local organization chosen by employees. All donations are then matched by the Bank’s Charitable Foundation. Moralda’s charity was chosen as a result of employee nominations and donations will benefit brain tumor research at Children’s Hospital Boston.
Rachel was first diagnosed during her freshmen year of High School with a rare but very serious brain tumor. Not knowing the impact it would make, Rachel started making jewelry while in the hospital to pass the time. After realizing she could put her talent to a profitable use, she decided to sell her jewelry and donate the money she raised. After raising $5000 she decided to start a charity called Crystals for a Cause. She currently has raised and donated $20,000 and has been cancer-free for one year.
“From the moment I got out of surgery , I knew I wanted to do something, no matter what it was, it may be able to someday cure all these children,” stated Rachel Marolda, founder and creator of Crystals for a Cause.
“We are all inspired by Rachel’s ability to take her experience and positively affect others in their time of need,” stated Julieann Thurlow, President and CEO of Reading Co-operative Bank. “She was a wonderful employee of the Bank and we are very happy to support her mission in any way we can.”
Rachel is a determined young woman, who is inspired to make a difference. To make a donation to her foundation or if you are interested in her jewelry please visit her website at www.generationcures.org/rachel-get-involved or contact her by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
