Raising Awareness from Coast to Coast

Join John Riches for an unforgettable RV tour across Canada and the United States, benefiting Cleaning for a Reason, ISSA Charities, and the entire cleaning industry!

Why support Coast to Coast for a Reason?

ISSA Charities board member John Riches is embarking on an unforgettable journey across the United States and Canada! Driving coast to coast in an RV, John will raise awareness for Cleaning for a Reason, a signature ISSA Charity that provides free home cleanings to cancer patients by partnering with residential cleaning companies.

In 2007, John lost his sister to cancer. He understands how important it is for people fighting the disease to receive adequate help and support.

As a sponsor, you’ll support a great cause that directly benefits cancer patients and the global cleaning industry. Join John on his journey to changing the way the world views cleaning.

    "Cleaning for a Reason is an important part of our support and care network. Cleaning is the last thing you have time to think about when someone in your family is battling cancer, but it’s a critical need for recovery. We’re so grateful for the gift of a clean, healthy, and safe home while my son battles leukemia.”

    “After my cancer diagnosis, I tried to wrap my head around what it would mean on a practical level to not really use either of my arms for six weeks after bilateral surgery. Your program swept in and did what I couldn’t. You lifted a burden for both me and my family that lives 1,000 miles away."

    "My stage three cancer diagnosis was so crushing that I didn't believe I would beat it. After walking into my freshly cleaned home, I felt a rush of confidence and some normalcy and control back in my life. A clean home gave me the boost I needed. For the first time, I actually believed I would beat cancer.”

    "Cleaning makes a big difference when you're dealing with cancer. You have to have your house cleaned of fungus, dust, germs, and bacteria. You never know when you might get an infection that you can't fight off."

    "I had a stem cell transplant and was not allowed by the doctors to vacuum or dust or clean the bathrooms. I didn't know what to do as finding and affording a cleaning service seemed impossible with my financial situation. Cleaning for a Reason helped me!"

    "I am fortunate to have friends offer meals, rides to chemo, and house cleaning. However, a friend cleaning my home is not a favor I felt comfortable accepting. I did not want friends scrubbing my toilets! And I cannot afford professional home cleaning. Thank you for this service."

    "My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer a month ago, and I found your program when I was trying to help him find resources. I live 1,000 miles away and this service made all the difference. It really helped him since he was struggling with enormous fatigue from chemo and couldn’t clean his house.”
