Giving Back

On Friday, September 5th, I watched a show called STAND UP TO CANCER.

In watching that multi-network, multi-celebrity extravaganza, I learned a few things:

  • In the time it took to watch the show, 60 people in America died of cancer. One per minute.
  • Almost everyone is touched in one way or another by cancer. (Skin, breast and colon cancer have affected just my immediate family!)
  • Cancer hits 1 out of every 3 women
  • AND 1 out of every 2 men
  • I can help!

…HOW?

Easy – donate! Not so easy – in this economy, funds are tight and I can’t afford to just stroke a check…or can I?

I got to thinking about it…I’m in sales…I earn commissions…if I give a portion of what I earn, THEN I can afford to donate.

This is what I came up with – From September 8th – December 31st, 2008, I will donate 10% of all my commissions earned to help fund cancer research.

What does all of this have to do with you? That’s a no-brainer! If you or someone you know are in need of a marketing program that includes promotional products and decorated apparel, purchase from Tracy Ebert and Atlantic LogoWear :)

I will be keeping an accounting of my donations on the homepage of my website www.alwtspecials.com.

Cancer is the worst. My mother died of cancer. It was a very painful time to see her slowly love her love for life.
