How you can help during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month


Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month is this month, and Going Gold doesn't get the attention it really deserves. Did you know that only 4% of the money raised through the National Cancer Institute goes towards children's cancer? 


FOUR. PERCENT.

 

I found some ways that you can help, and certain things you can buy where the profits go towards helping kids with cancer.


Personally, I've bought a baseball cap and 2 headbands from Love Your Melon. I've been very happy with my purchases, AND 50% of the profits support the fight against pediatric cancer. 


If you haven't heard of them, Chavez for Charity bracelets are great! I have a really cute yellow one, and some of them benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand (Other bracelets benefit all different organizations, including Water.org. There's a small tag to tell you which bracelet is for which charity). It's a foundation that was started by a little girl named Alex who had neuroblastoma. She started her own lemonade stand to raise money, but unfortunately she passed away from cancer when she was just 8-years-old. Her parents have taken on the charity, and it's raised over $150 million.


I'm a sucker for Alex & Ani bracelets too .... one of which is a unicorn bangle that benefits Children's Miracle Network


If you know of another organization or any events coming up that benefit Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, please shoot me a message! I would love to feature them, and get the word out!
