Fundraising for a Cause: Pink Ribbon Courage Mats
Here at Health Mats, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a cause that’s near and dear to our hearts. Even though it doesn’t officially kick off until October 1st, we believe that it’s never too soon to start spreading awareness. Since many of us have firsthand experiences on the havoc this terrible disease can cause, it’s important for us to give back in any way we can. That’s why we created our “Pink Ribbon Courage Mat” Fundraiser. See below how your donation to this cause can benefit local people in our community and how you can help make a difference.
Breast Cancer is a Community Disease
While researching breast cancer in our local area, we were saddened to see many of the challenges that some patients have to face. We learned that while insurance companies will help with some costs, the co-pays for appointments are not covered. We believe that breast cancer patients should only have to worry about getting well, not how they will be able to afford their treatments. This is just another reason why we want to raise money for patients. This money can go towards their co-pays, transportation to appointments, food, other daily needs and more. Between receiving chemotherapy, radiation, nutrition or general check-ups, the costs add up and can become a stressor for many families. This can be a sad reality for many of our neighbors and friends in our community. Since this disease effects those around us, it’s important to come together to fight back.
How Our Fundraiser Works
When a new or loyal customer donates 25 dollars or more, they will receive a pink ribbon courage mat for their commercial property. Not only will you receive a beautiful mat for one month, you will also be standing with your local community in support of breast cancer awareness. Even if your company does not need a mat, you are still invited to help with a donation of any amount. Health Mats will be delivering the mats at the end of September, so it’s important to get a head start! Once the fundraiser is over, we will be picking the mats up in early November for your convenience.
How we Were Able to Give Back
Through our Pink Ribbon Courage Mat Fundraiser last year, we were able to raise 4,800 dollars. Thanks to all of the generous donations, we were able to give 100 percent of the funds to two patients in need. This money helped offer support to the both of them as they underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
This year, our goal is to raise even more money than the previous year. We hope that by raising more money, we will be able to give back to even more patients in need. Through our relationship with Crozer Keystone Hospital in Delaware County, PA, we will be put in contact with local breast cancer patients who need support. With the strength of our community behind them, we can help make the lives of these breast cancer patients just a little easier.
We want to hear from you!
