BENEFITING: Cancer Schmancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2011
One Meaning Couture chooses a different charity each month to which we give over 10% of all jewelry sales for that month. We are very proud to announce that One Meaning's Charity of the Month for January 2011 is Cancer Schmancer, in honor of sharing our stories to provide hope and inspiration to one another. Cancer Schmancer is a great organization leading the fight against cancer by encouraging and supporting early detection.
We’re helping them in that fight, starting right here: During the entire month, One Meaning will be donating 10% of all jewelry sales to Cancer Schmancer Movement, as well as featuring additional fundraising opportunities.
DONATE $5 minimum (or $38 or more, ideally) to THIS PROJECT AND WE'LL SEND YOU OUR "FRANKLY I'M IN LOVE" DOGTAG NECKLACE. Beginning this month, we’re excited to unveil an additional way to support our Charity of the Month. When you make a donation to Cancer Schmancer through our Crowdrise page, send us your confirmation along with your mailing address and One Meaning will send you a “Frankly I’m in Love Dogtag.” It tells the world you have a story to share and have the tags to put you in the fight to win! Please take a moment to learn about Cancer Schmancer below and on our page dedicated to them at http://www.onemeaningcouture.com/charity_of_the_month.html
The CANCER SCHMANCER MOVEMENT
Cancer - We’ve all been affected by it in some way, whether it’s ourselves, our families or our friends. This year, cancer will be the leading killer in the world. In the U.S. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. BUT THERE IS HOPE… Did you know when cancer is found early, 90% SURVIVE? Everyone, regardless of age, race or socioeconomic background deserves to have the opportunity of survival.
Cancer Schmancer is fighting cancer a different way: CATCHING IT EARLY. By shifting this nation’s focus from just searching for a cure to education, prevention and early detection, we can save lives TODAY. By empowering ourselves and the women we love to become medical consumers; to listen to our bodies, ask the right questions of our doctors and seek second opinions, we can prevent cancer and, if we still end up with it, detect cancer in its earliest stages. At Cancer Schmancer, they aren’t reinventing the wheel, they are shedding light on a method that works to end mortality due to late stage diagnosis. And that’s EARLY DETECTION.
Cures are few and far between. So, at Cancer Schmancer, it is their belief that women's health MUST become more political in order to see immediate improvements. Cancer Schmancer will raise awareness and educate women, as well as serve as a policy-driven women's health movement to alert Capitol Hill that the collective female voice is louder and more powerful than that of the richest corporate lobbyist.
