Alex's 24 for 24th
Organized by: Alex Kimura
EVENT DATE Aug 06, 2014
I turn 24 years old on August 6th, and I want to make this birthday count! As many of you know, I am a co-founder of Sharing America's Marrow (S.A.M.), a nationwide campaign to register 50,000 bone marrow donors in 50 states in 2015. But we need YOUR help to make this happen!
Instead of gifts or birthday wishes this year, I am asking my friends and family to make a $24 donation to S.A.M. to help us cover the expenses of our tour to find life-saving heroes. Your donation helps pay for gas and supplies that will get us from donor drive to donor drive, meaning that every dollar you donate helps us to reach more people who could give a patient fighting blood cancer a second chance.
To prove to you how much of an impact your donation makes, I promise to register one bone marrow donor in your honor for every dollar you give! And I will let you know after I have signed them up!
And if you want to add a few zeros to that 24, I will still follow through and register as many donors for as many dollars as your generous little heart wants to give :)
Thank you so much for making my birthday the best birthday yet!!
*Online donations are not currently tax-deductible but will be in mid-September. If you would like to wait to make a donation, and would like for me to send you a friendly reminder, please email me at email@example.com. OR you can write a check donation that is tax deductible, made out to "Delete Blood Cancer," memo: SAM. Send to: 159 Chenoweth Lane, Louisville KY 40207.
