Finding out someone close to you has prostate cancer is never easy. Everyone wants to help out in some way, but they don’t know how. Here are some ways to create awareness and also help someone out at the same time.
“Dress down” day
This can easily be a popular company-wide initiative. Choose a day when all employees can donate $5.00 to wear casual clothing or blue jeans to work. This is a win-win fundraiser – your co-workers will be comfortable and the proceeds benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago
In lieu of wedding favors, make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago. We will provide a card for each table that informs guests that a donation was made in their names. This is a wonderful way to show your friends and family how much you care! The Bride and Groom will also receive a blue ribbon to wear on their wedding day.
In lieu of balloons, flowers, and gifts, ask friends and family to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago.
Corporate Company Match of a Donation
If you work for a larger company, find out if your company offers a matching donation to your cause. This is a great way to double your donation!
