Please Help Support Childhood Cancer Awareness
Written by Nicole | April 9, 2012
Project Inspired readers, did you know that every day in the United States, 41 children are told they have cancer? Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in U.S. children under the age of 15, and there are more than 50,000 children being treated for cancer in hospitals at this very moment. Luckily, there’s a way YOU can help make a difference!
I recently received an email from one of the founders of a co-profit t company called Sevenly. They give away 30% of all their profits from their t-shirts to the cause they are helping! It’s an organization that raises money for different causes–one per week–and gains support by selling special t-shirts designed for each cause.
This week, each shirt purchased from Sevenly will provide a child suffering from cancer with a “JoyJar”–a jar stuffed with toys to help brighten their day. This week’s t-shirt bears the slogan “Never Give Up” in partnership with the Jessie Rees Foundation, created to fulfill cancer victim Jessica Joy Rees’s wish that every child with cancer was encouraged to never give up the fight.
Today you can help simply by sharing this message. You can also help by going to the website and purchasing the t-shirt to help bring joy to a cancer-stricken child. Most importantly, you can pray for all children with cancer.
PI readers, will you help bring joy to a child with cancer?
