BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Feb 24, 2014
Today is World Cancer Day and also the day that I am launching my own campaign. We all know that I normally run campaigns from behind the scenes and most of it is harassing people for money. Luckily, I am still using that skill set. For my birthday, I am asking you to help me raise $750 for the American Cancer Society.
The ACS is near and dear to my heart for personal reasons. They helped Nanni (my grandmother) tremendously throughout her battle with cancer and my mother has relayed stories of the ACS volunteers who would bring snacks to chemo treatments and give hand massages to the patients while they endured those tedious hours. Even better, they have the best slogan - Less Cancer, More Birthdays. Let's make that happen.
This goal is more than attainable and I couldn’t think of a better organization. It is a national based non-profit which means both my friends and family from either coast can feel that their donation will matter. Whether it is $5 or $50, I am so appreciative for my wonderful friends and family. Thank you for your generosity! It truly means a lot to me. Please help me reach my goal today and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
