As I do every morning I sign into SITS roll call. You have heard me many times talk about them but if you forgot SITS (The Secret Is In The Sauce) is an amazing support group of blogger woman who love to leave bloggy lovin. So stop by and check them out, you will love being a SITSta!
Anyways the post today is about Cards For Cancer have had two grandmothers pass away from cancer. One from breast cancer and one from lung cancer (and she didn't even smoke), so I always try to participate in event related to cancer as I can. So here is what SITS posted today and I wanted to pass along....
Some of you may be familiar with Spirit Jump, a nonprofit organization dedicated to lifting the spirits of men, women and children battling cancer. SITS has been a strong supporter of this organization for the past year, throwing a hugely successful fundraiser for them in Las Vegas. We are excited to announce Spirit Jump has started a new project called Cards For Cancer Day.
On or around April 10th, 2010 Spirit Jump and team leaders around the world will bring bags of cards to their local cancer centers to be given to those battling cancer. Spirit Jump’s founder, Meaghan Edelstein, has asked us to help make this day a huge success. They are looking for people who can make, collect and deliver cards to local cancer centers and of course…blog about the experience. This is the perfect project for kids and families and a great opportunity to help those in need.
There are several ways you can join Cards For Cancer Day:
1- BECOME A TEAM LEADER: a Team Leader makes and collects uplifting cards and commits to deliver the cards to local cancer centers on or around April 10th.
2- TEAM MEMBER: a Team Member helps make and collect the cards and then passes these cards to their Team Leader in time to be delivered.
3- TELL EVERYONE: Blog and Tweet about the event.
It’s really that simple and they need more people to help them reach their goal of delivering over 100,000 uplifting cards.
