Our sorority, Delta Zeta, is hosting our annual Sweet Caroline Bone Marrow and Blood Drive on February 18th, 2014. This is the 10th drive, and each year we stop and remember why we host this philanthropy event. One of our sisters, Caroline Terry, was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in 2004. The chapter initiated two bone marrow drives that year to search for a match, and although a match was found, Caroline passed away in 2005. As we seek to make the drive a success each year, we remember Caroline and our mission to keep her memory alive. We also strive to help others with this disease and spread awareness.

In our search to add new names to the National Bone Marrow Donor Program registry, we also seek financial support. It costs $100 to add one person to the registry. In our efforts to add many new names to the registry we try to assist the Be The Match Foundation in the costs incurred through such drives. While finding people to add to the registry is one process, the other is funding the testing of each swab kit.

Minorities have a harder time finding a match; maybe you would like to pledge to pay for a certain percentage of minority swab kits we receive on that day. With varying options of ways to donate, we hope that one will best fit your financial availability. Also, any donation you make is 100% tax deductible. If we don’t acquire the money to provide testing, then the new possible bone marrow donors will do us no good in helping those in need of a transplant.

We ask that you help save lives through a monetary donation. Any donation helps and will be much appreciated. If you would like to pledge an amount for every new member we add to the registry, that is another option. Every $100 we raise will go towards adding one new potential marrow donor to the registry. There are so many people who need bone marrow transplants, and their families, friends, and possibly even sorority sisters may be praying that they find a match—something our chapter knows first-hand.

We really appreciate your time in considering making a donation, and our chapter does as well. This is a cause so near and dear to our hearts, and we want to make our drive a success. Caroline is still alive in our Sweet Caroline Bone Marrow and Blood Drive, and we could not continue this mission successfully without your help. Thank you so much for anything you can contribute.
