Join Juble it! ONE in THREE campaign and donate one dollar in three seconds towards the Cancer Research Institute, a non-profit dedicated to controlling, curing and treating all cancers
By Elliott O'Hara
There’s a tremendous amount of untapped goodwill in the world. As the Chief Technical Officer at Juble it!, a digital media company that brings crowdfunding tools to creators, I experience this every day via the good work shared by Juble it! creators on our platform. I also see this goodwill at hand from the musicians and writers on the Juble it! team.
I’ve also come to learn how this goodwill remains trapped by all the digital friction making it too hard for fans to support their favorite creators.
With our crowdfunding tools, the Juble Button and Juble Link, we have built a powerful system for online tips and donations by interacting with customers at the moment they're motivated to give. Unlike other tools, Juble it! reduces the minimum amount you can give to $1 and makes it simple and fast.
Juble it! removes the friction around digital payments and creates new ways for creators and their fans to express true gratitude and care. It’s more than a "like" and more meaningful than a "share.” As a result, the Juble it! platform empowers goodwill.
To commemorate our company’s debut at the 2018 Startup Grind Global Conference in Redwood City, the Juble it! team and I are launching the ONE in THREE campaign in support of finding and funding cures for cancer in partnership with the Cancer Research Institute, a non-profit dedicated to controlling, curing and treating all cancers.
Each member of the Juble it! team has experienced personal losses from cancer, but sadly my family story strikes deep.
When my friend and father-in-law Floyd Wayne “Paw Paw” Woodward learned about his pancreatic cancer diagnosis, he handled it with the strength and resolve I’ve always admired about him. It’s been close to 13 months since he’s passed but I still think daily about the matter-of-fact way he asked his doctors, ‘how long do I have?;’ his commitment to making sure his wife Peggy would be taken care of and his strength to take care of himself for as long as possible.
“Paw Paw” wasn’t fond of taking charity, So I approached him the way I knew it could work.
“Paw Paw, I have a favor to ask of you. I want to enjoy every moment you have left with you. This isn’t about me helping you out at all. This is about me wanting to spend as much time as I can with you. Will you please move in with my family and me?”
He thought about it and agreed to the move.
I watched what cancer did to the strongest man I ever knew. I was with him on his last trip out of the house to buy his wife a Christmas present, I carried him up the stairs because he couldn’t make it. I was with him as he took his final breath, I helped carry his body down the same stairs.
One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Now, my Juble it! partner Paolo Dominguez and I can celebrate the strength and spirit of “Paw Paw” by launching the ONE in THREE campaign in support of finding and funding cures for cancer in partnership with the Cancer Research Institute.
The Juble it! team knows how much I hate cancer. They know how the pain of losing “Paw Paw” remains raw for me.
Take three seconds. Give one dollar. Cancer, your time is running out. We WILL beat you!
