50 States of Grace September Challenge

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month.  Amazing Gracie’s Gift Foundation would like to spread awareness of childhood cancer and knowledge of our foundation during this month to all 50 states!  Will you help?

Take part in this challenge by getting your state involved.  Our goal is to have all 50 states participate in some type of a fundraiser for our foundation.  The most successful fundraisers reflect your creativity and passion, so anything goes!  Not sure what to do?  We’re happy to share a list of ideas for successful fundraisers!

If you are interested in hosting a fundraiser, please contact us to share your idea and to send your donation.  We will keep track of each state’s donation to the foundation.  Make your state the top donor!

Fundraising ideas (all proceeds going to Amazing Gracie’s Gift Foundation):

  1. Dress down at work:  Allow employees to pay a minimum of $5.00 to wear jeans to work on a designated day.  (This can also be done as “spirit day” – wearing favorite team shirts or colors or “hat day” –  wearing a favorite hat to work.
  2. Order Amazing Gracie’s Gift bracelets or t-shirts to sell in your state.  (Contact amazinggraciesgift.org to inquire about ordering these products.)
