The Prevent Cancer Foundation is partnering with #GivingTuesday® for their inaugural national day of giving on Tuesday November 27, 2012. In light of the other two post-Thanksgiving shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday® seeks to encourage charitable activities and donations that support nonprofit organizations like the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
Over a thousand organizations, in all 50 states, are joining together to kick off this holiday’s giving season with the launch of this social media campaign. You can join us in giving back by:
- Texting GIVE HEALTH to 84465 to give $10 that can help save lives (Terms)
- Donating in remembrance or honor of a loved one
- Hosting your own #GivingTuesday® fundraiser. Visit our fundraising page for ideas
- Giving back while gift giving. Visit our Shop for Prevention webpage
Every donation makes a difference in cancer prevention, no matter how big or small; $25 can cover the cost of one skin cancer screening, $250 can provide two women with mammograms and $4,500 pays for one full day of Mammovan services and screenings for 20 women.
It is always better to give than it is to receive, so please join the Prevent Cancer Foundation and #GivingTuesday® to Stop Cancer Before It Starts!
