$10K will be donated to breast cancer-related organizations if Razoo reaches 50,000 “Likes” on Facebook page
SAN FRANCISCO & WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Razoo, the fastest growing crowdfunding platform for causes, announces the creation of their PinkGiving Campaign during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The PinkGiving Campaign is an effort to highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness and to inspire others to take action. If Razoo’s Facebook page receives 50,000 “Likes” then Razoo will donate an even share of $10K to four organizations fighting breast cancer.
“Don’t underestimate the power you have to make a difference,” says Razoo CEO Lesley Mansford. “All one has to do is “Like” our Facebook page and share our information about breast cancer, and then ask your friends – whether you have ten or ten thousand. By sharing, you are spreading the word about this important issue, and some of your friends who see your post may be compelled to donate, fundraise, pass the word along to their friends, or even see a doctor.”
One of the four organizations that will benefit from the PinkGiving Campaign is Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering all women affected by breast cancer to live as long as possible with the best quality of life.
“If we were to be honored with a portion of this great campaign, we would be able to put that money toward our support and education programming, including our Survivors' Helpline; our print and online publications which include our “Guides to Understanding;” and a calendar full of national conferences, teleconferences, and local community meetings,” says Rachel Pinkstone-Marx, Marketing and Development Coordinator for Living Beyond Breast Cancer. “It’s through this support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month - and more importantly, all year-round—that LBBC can continue its mission to empower all women affected by breast cancer to live as long as possible with the best quality of life.”
The other 3 organizations that would receive a donation are:
Susan G. Komen for the Cure®: The largest breast cancer-related organization in the United States and is one of the most popular on Razoo.
Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition: A Philadelphia-based organization that focuses on educating women with breast cancer in their region.
Young Survival Coalition: A national organization that focuses on helping young women diagnosed or at risk for breast cancer.
Last year, more than 230,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed. As a community, Razoo feels it’s our responsibility to take action. Whether it’s donating or fundraising for your favorite organization on Razoo, or spreading the word via social media, Razoo is urging everyone to do their part to help and “Like” them on Facebook.
