In an effort to generate more awareness of pediatric cancer, Mendoza Marble & Granite has created:
MENDOZA’S HUGGING HEROES DONATION PROGRAM
The program will run now through September 30th, 2016. Mendoza has pledged all proceeds throughout the duration of the program with a…
GOAL OF $15,000!
Your purchase at Mendoza will not only benefit you but also millions of children fighting cancer everyday.
In summer of 2015, Mendoza co-owner and CFO, Lucas Olivera, along with 3 fellow entreprenuers, Daniel Reji, Michael Iavarone III, and Ian Bullard, created a unique campaign from a shared vision to bring awareness to pediatric cancer, Hugging Heroes.
Hugging Heroes’ official launch was on October 10th, 2015 at Rutgers’ Blackout game versus Michigan State.
Hugging Heroes is centered around a social challenge:
1. The Hugging Challenge, to share an image of you hugging your hero
(“hero” being anyone or anything)
2. Post it on Facebook
3. Challenge your friends to do the same using #HuggingHeroes.
Similar to the famous “Ice Bucket Challenge”.

Hugging Heroes is a multi-charity campaign designed to promote awareness for pediatric cancer, and to inspire action to support the fight against it.
The campaign is centered on a challenge:
•Participants will record a video of themselves “hugging their heroes”
•Nominate friends to complete the challenge
•Post the clips to social media
With your help, this campaign can change the way childhood cancer is viewed in America.
Something as small as a symbolic hug can have a tremendous impact in today’s world because it brings this problem to the attention of the people, so please share this campaign with everyone you can, and help give our young heroes hope.
