Businesses & Non-Profits Benefit from GratisGives
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“People think it’s too good to be true, but we’ve identified a no brainer way for local businesses and charities to both thrive simultaneously.” * Kirk Allaire
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Kirk Allaire and partner Andy Lafreniere have created a unique way to help businesses do their business while also creating a consistent stream of cash donations to go to local non-profits. 

In October of 2017, Kirk Allaire had a crazy-big idea. 

The roots of this idea: As the successful owner of a company called Gratis Payment Processing, he wanted to give back to a non-profit that held great meaning to him personally. In the early days of his company, he contacted this specific charity to try to initiate the process. But he found the simple idea of trying to donate to a national organization to be overwhelming for the company’s bandwidth at the time.

How a Mother’s Grief Has Transformed into a Tireless Crusade for the Community
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
"The kids just break your heart, but you can’t step away because you know you’re making a difference, and you’re the person helping them survive." * Barbie Marcoe
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Barbie Marcoe has found a way to channel her love for her daughter, who unexpectedly passed away in a car accident, into novel ways to support the community.

A typical birthday for most people involves a couple of presents, a few texts from friends, and perhaps culminates in a dessert topped by a lit candle brought into a dim room by a handful of singers. 

But Barbie Marcoe, whose birthday happens to be the same day as this interview, isn’t most people. 

“We’re expecting 60 high schoolers to be here today, starting in just a few minutes,” she calls out across the room as a volunteer walks through the door on this gray Friday morning. “And I have the perfect job for you!”
