If you dumped a bucket of ice for the whole world to see, then contributed to the ALS association you were a part of a worldwide effort. Cos your contribution helped raise $115 million for that organization. That’s $95 million more than was raised last year for this cause. And even if you didn’t make a direct donation, by spreading the word about this disease to others via social networking you were key to the best charitable effort ever. Awareness is 90% of giving- because afterall you can’t know what you don’t know and you can’t support an organization for a condition that you didn’t know exists.
Stomp it out, smash it out, waaayyy out.
So let’s spread the word and raise a few dollars for what will be an important part of coping for people who are living with MS (and peeps who care about them). MS SoftServe is a non-profit .org that will put learning and teaching about MS in the control of all of us who are living with it. It is a customizable learning website will lessen anxiety and empower us on new levels. Check out this link to learn more about MSSoftServe and this one to donate.
Why Halloween is the Perfect time for MS fundraising!
- Orange is the color of the designated ribbon for MS
- MS is sooo scary.
- Stomping on a pumpkin to metaphorically stamp out MS is sooo satisfying!
Cut to the Cut Amy!
Many of us will carve a pumpkin and put it on our porch on October 31st. But what to do with it on November 1st? Before it hits the trash or the compost heap why not smash it, video tape it and spread the word about this effort. Getting the word out about our effort is so important and a few donations wouldn’t hurt in getting us closer to our goal.
