Enclosed is a $5.00 money order to “Susan G. Komen Philadelphia.” I sent $5.00 last month as well to the Steven H. Lupin Law firm to send to your organization because I did not have the proper information. You can look forward to me sending $5.00 every month.
My name is Cory and I will be becoming a Bar Mitzvah soon. Part of becoming a Bar Mitzvah is to perform a Mitzvah, which is a good deed or charitable act. For my Mitzvah Project, I chose to raise money for Susan G. Komen in honor of my Bubbie (Grandmother), who just reached her 5 year milestone of being cancer free.
I am studying social work (MSW) at the University of Pennsylvania, and I reached out to Susan G. Komen Philadelphia for a summer internship because I wanted to learn more about nonprofit operations and development, obstacles and barriers to treatment for breast cancer, and the way in which a local chapter of a national nonprofit supports the surrounding Philadelphia community.
There are no words that can properly express my gratitude to you… you have so warmly welcomed us into the Mother’s Day Race for the Cure that we will surely walk until we cannot!
As you know, we hosted “HOPE” (one of the big pigs of the Dietz & Watson Pretty In Pig program) from April 26 – May 3 at the Spring-Ford Area School District 5/6 Center. In keeping with our Pro-Social theme of SUPER STAR , “HOPE” was adorned like a SUPER STAR!
I get chills whenever I watch anything related to the 1980 U.S. Gold Medal Olympic Hockey Team, for it includes a magical moment which transcends sports… a story of a feat which was deemed impossible, proves to be, indeed, possible. The “impossible” happened primarily because a group of passionate people with one goal came together, took action, and created a moment that will stand for the ages.
As a junior at Cherry Hill High School East, I have been a member of the girl’s tennis team- the Lady Cougars- since my sophomore year. We are a close-knit team of exceptionally caring girls. Our coach, Mary Lynn, is supportive of all our efforts, both on and off the court.
Please find enclosed our 2012 breast cancer awareness donation for the cure in the amount of $1,025. Our staff here at Patterson Elementary School is again proud to support his very worthwhile cause.
Komen Philadelphia Affiliate volunteer and breast cancer survivor, Liz Barker, shares her feelings, insights and sense of empowerment related to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and being an instrument of The Affilaite’s work in our community.
As you may recall, I sent you a short letter and a donation last summer on behalf of Breezy Point Day Camp, located in Langhorne, PA. Our Breast Cancer Awareness Day last summer was such a success, we decided to make it a tradition, and this summer we held it on Wednesday, August 8.
