Crummack Huseby comes together again to show we should “Never Give Up.” #NEGU.

In 2011, Jessica “Jessie”Joy Rees asked a simple question while returning home from her chemotherapy treatment, “what can I do to help?” This question was answered with a worldwide movement to bring joy to kids battling cancer.

Though her diagnosis was grim, her only thought was how she can bring a smile to the kids who couldn’t come home after their treatment. Jessie began filling jars with toys and small gifts to be given to the kids that had to stay at the hospital. Before long, her “joy jars” were being requested near and far.



Crummack Huseby has decided to join forces and help raise money to stuff 250 JoyJars®. Sandy Huseby and Margo Crummack have jumpstarted our donation with $2,500.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. DONATE 
    Donate $20 through our team page!  (A $20 donation will help create one JoyJar) https://www.teamnegu.org/teamCH

  2. JOIN US
    A mobile Joy Factory is coming to our offices where our employees and those who have helped donate will be able to stuff joy jars with happiness and hand written letters of encouragement. Please join us on October 4th to bring smiles to these brave warriors, email Jennifer Norton at jennifer@ch-pm.com or register to participate >> REGISTER HERE

Thank you so much for contributing to our charity efforts throughout the year. We are so proud of our community and look forward to your support!


Jessie Rees was a beautiful, athletic, smart and compassionate 12 year old girl who bravely fought two brain tumors (DIPG) for ten months and two days. Her fight started on March 3, 2011 and ended on January 5, 2012 when she earned her angel wings.

During her courageous fight, Jessie decided to focus on helping other kids fighting cancer that couldn’t leave the hospital. This desire led to the creation of her fun-filled JoyJars® and Never Ever Give Up (aka: NEGU®) message.

Today, JoyJars and NEGU are recognized symbols of hope, joy and love in over 29 countries.
