A Call For Your Help!

Ladies and gentlemen... we need your help!

Some of my friends and I are part of campaign team to help our friend Andrew raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Andrew's younger brother has had both leukemia and lymphoma. He is in remission today, but because of Andrew's work with LLS, he has been nominated as a candidate for the infamous Man & Woman of The Year campaign that the society puts on every year. Its a VERY intense fund-raiser, and we have 10 weeks to raise as much money as possible. Our goal is $50,000... but of course, the more the better! The person who raises the most money gets crowned "Man" or "Woman" of the Year.

Today is the first day of the campaign, so donations are in full swing. Obviously, its a rough time to have a fundraiser, but Andrew and the rest of our team have faith and hope that we'll be able to reach our goal. Literally every dollar makes a difference. Not to mention, since 1960, the five-year leukemia survival rate in children has improved from 4% to 80% today because of donations for cancer research. Together, we can make a difference!

Here is what you can do to help our campaign!

1. Follow our blog!! This is the BEST way for us to get the word out there
2. Grab our "button" for your blog so others can spread the word, too!
3. Join our Facebook Group!
4. Attend our events! There is an event calendar on the blog and we'll be hosting events ALL over the country in the next 10 weeks.

The more publicity the better, so please help us spread the word... we only have 10 weeks to help make a difference!

Thanks in advance for your help! :)
