Today is #GivingTuesday, and it's also the launch of our "Full Speed Ahead" year-end campaign. This December, we're asking you to hop aboard with us to turn 2015's progress into 2016's reality of improving the lives of children with cancer. With your donation on this national day of giving, you fuel our mission and our work heading into a critical year.
We've got momentum on our side: Sweeping childhood cancer legislation is gaining new Congressional cosponsors every week. Precision medicine is becoming a household term. More children are surviving cancer than ever before.
But we can't slow down now. The stakes are simply too high. We're blazing full speed ahead toward a brighter future, and we need you on this train with us.
Maximize your impact this holiday season:
- Help us earn matching donations through GoodWorld's Million Dollar Challenge! Become a Social Giving Superhero this December by commenting #donate $20 (or any other amount!) on our Facebook page or tweeting out: #donate $20 @childrenscause. Once you post those magic words on social media, Good World will send you a link to a 60-second form to securely process your donation - and their matching gift!
- Help build this year's CrowdRise Giving Tower! If you make a donation to us here, a brick will be added to the interactive, global virtual giving tower. There's an app available on iTunes and Google Play so you can follow along and watch the tower grow in real time -- an especially great way to get kids excited about this giving season!
- Still have items sitting in your Amazon online shopping cart from yesterday? If you do your holiday shopping through AmazonSmile and select Children's Cause for Cancer Advocacy as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate a portion to us - at no extra cost to you!
Your gift matters now more than ever, and there's no better day than today - #GivingTuesday - to make your year-end donation. Your support enables us to be aggressive advocates for new pediatric cancer therapies that are more effective and less harmful.
Thank you for helping us usher in a new era of progress and hope for our children.
