BREAKING CDH RESEARCH NEWS:
Last December we held a Facebook contest and you voted for your favorite
Research Center to get a $10,000 CDH Research Grant. We were able to
give away 2 grants for $10,000 each thanks to all your help selling
50/50 CDH Raffle tickets and thanks to 1 determined family who raised
$10,000 in memory of their daughter! $10,000 went to The Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at CHOP and $10,000 went to DHREAMS Research Study (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia).
Our goal is to sell 1000 more 50/50 CDH Raffle tickets to raise
another $10,000 and to work together to raise an additional $15,000
through fundraisers and firstgiving pages.
Think we can do it? Want to give $25,000 in CDH Research Grants this December? We sure do!!!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Purchase tickets at http://2014cdhresearchraffleeventbrite.com/
2. Sell paper tickets by e-mailing us your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Hold a fundraiser by talking to our Fundraising Coordinator Melissa Larrison at email@example.com
4. Create a Firstgiving Page in honor/memory of your cherub at https://www.firstgiving.com/10125/cherubs-2013-cdh-research-fund-drive
It's not hard to help! We had several families sell over 50 tickets each
and we have had 2 families raise over $10,000 on Firstgiving and one
who raised $25,000! If all of us work together on this we can far exceed
our goal and raise a lot of money for CDH Research!
100% money raised through fundraisers and
Firstgiving will go CDH Research Grants. 50% of money raised through
raffle ticket sales will CDH Research Grants, the remaining 50% goes to
the raffle winner. CHERUBS is not
keeping one dime off of this project for any of our own funds. We want
to end the year by funding CDH Research and helping to find the cause
and prevention of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
