BENEFITING: National Blood Clot Alliance
EVENT DATE: Sep 14, 2016
Revlon has challenged the National Blood Clot Alliance to raise as much money as possible over the course of six weeks - from September 14th to October 26th. The organization which raises the most money will win an additional ONE MILLION DOLLARS from Revlon! A monumental opportunity for our growing organization.
Blood clots do not discriminate. Regardless of age, gender or race - we're all at risk! Up to 900,000 people are affected by blood clots each year. 100,000 of these people will die. Throughout their lives, women face crucial choices that can contribute to their risk of life threatening blood clots. Choices connected to family planning, birth control, pregnancy, and the treatment of menopause symptoms must be carefully weighed to reduce the risk of dangerous blood clots. Each day, women of all ages are losing their lives due to blood clots that could have been prevented. NBCA has created the Women & Blood Clots program, specifically designed to create awareness and educate women about their unique, lifelong challenges and risks for developing blood clots.
Please watch our Women & Blood Clots video, read the stories under "The Team" and consider making a donation to help us win the Revlon Love Is On™ Million Dollar Challenge! Revlon is awarding the top 5 organizations that raise the most money with cash prizes between $25,000 - $1,000,000! As a growing organization, placing in the top 5 would be a monumental opportunity. With your help, we can Stop The Clot®! Our mission is critical and we have no time to waste.
