BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2011
My birthday is exactly 1 month away as of this writing, and in lieu of gifts this year, I feel it would be best to give to an organization whose work is deserving of much attention: Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
I have had many family members and friends with breast cancer, including my mother and grandmother. The fight these women had to go through was painful for them, and is a struggle I would love to see end for the many people with breast cancer.
Together, we can do something. All it takes is a first step. I would like to raise $500 dollars in 31 days. I feel this is a very realistic goal. To do this, I would like everyone to donate the amount of their age. I will donate $24 because it will be my 24th birthday.
I am very passionate about cancer research, not only because my family has been personally affected by it, but because it seems EVERYBODY knows somebody affected by it. Please join me in celebrating and supporting women such as my mother and grandmother, who go through a sometimes fatal struggle with breast cancer.
Thank you so much for your generosity!
