We have a lot of people contact us wanting to purchase koozies for their fundraiser events. We love supporting Breast Cancer awareness events and do our best to offer advice, and discounts to complete our customers needs. Breast Cancer and ALL cancers are taken very serious to us all. Each koozieZ team member has had a relative or friend diagnosed with some type of cancer.
We decided it was time to go a little further and inaugurate a plan to support breast cancer awareness, that holds a place in EVERYONE’s heart around the world. Our campaign is posted as an event on our facebook page.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 (more would be great!) to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc for each new “like” we get. When we started the campaign on March 19, 2012 we had 1,150 facebook likes. On the morning of the 3rd day March 21,2012 we have raised $26. I am praying that we get the word out there and start raising more money.
I am trying to figure out new ways to keep the buzz going. I have contacted a few of our previous customers that have ordered koozies for Breast Cancer Events. Hopefully they will be willing to share their personal stories with us. If any of you reading this have any ideas please share with me, it would be appreciated 😉
Personal stories are inspirational, they influence and motivate those around us to join in. My hope is to use these stories to inspire others to find our campaign and join us in the fight against breast cancer.
According to the statistics found on the National Cancer Institute website in 2011 it is estimated that 230,480 women will be diagnosed with and 39,520 women will die of breast cancer. It is the leading cause of cancer death in women aged 20-59.
Globally in 2010, 1.5 million people were told “you have breast cancer”
Raising awareness will help women to get check outed early which the best way to prevent breast cancer.
I really hope we can help to make a difference!
Thank you to everyone sharing our event and spreading the word!
