Because you can
It's easy to take action and make a difference in the lives of others. What change do you want to make possible?
See that people all around us, people you may know, or maybe in your family have cancer and decide to help.
It doesn’t take long to set up a campaign. Choose a local area to help. Pick a name. Choose a photo. Make it personal. Set a goal and boom! You’ve started. And if you need some help getting started, we’ll give you some filler words and text to get the ideas going.
Spread the word and take action.
Once you have set up a campaign, tell everyone about it and why you are doing it. Use social media, email, make soap, grow a beard and let a stranger tell you how to shave your face, host a party, tell others you ride with, bake cookies, or tell your company to see if they will match you. It’s easier than you think (here’s a fundraising idea cheat sheet).
Giving people an opportunity to support you and make a difference is a win win win (local people is the 3rd win)! At the end of the day, people always give to people. Why? Because we are relational.
See where your money goes.
After the campaign is over, we’ll send 100% of what you raise directly to the partner site in the local area you choose. With our partners and patient navigators, we’ll report back to you with info about the actual people your money helps.
