We love chucking paint and making people smile, but we also think it is important to give back. As a for profit company, we are excited we have the opportunity to partner with charities and help shine a light on their extraordinary work within society.
We are thrilled to be working with Camp Kesem.
Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer.
A program of Kesem, Camp Kesem operates free summer camps for children who have been impacted by a parent’s cancer.
Founded at Stanford University in 2000, Camp Kesem has since expanded to over 100 chapters in 40 states across the country.

It's as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Find your unique referral link at the top of your ticket confirmation email
2. Share your link with friends

So… how does this cash back thing work?
When you complete registration, you are given a unique referral link to share with your friends. Each time someone uses this referral link to register for the same event, the system counts one referral to that person. Each new registrant will also be provided a unique referral link that they can share to also earn cash back. For 3-4 referrals, you’ll get $10 back. For 5+, you’ll get $25! What are you waiting for?!
