There is a powerful movement called: Stand Up To Cancer. This nonprofit organization has joined the force through MissionFish by entering into the system. Now, Stand Up To Cancer has been launched into the eBay Giving Works platform which allows this organization even more worldwide exposure. Everyone can find amazing auction and eBay store items supporting this cause People around eBay land and the world are Standing Up To Cancer, including myself.
Did you know that 1 in 3 people will be affected by cancer? Did you also know that cancer takes 1 person every minute? Cancer is out of control.
I lost my dad to rectal cancer in 2005. He was at the young of 61 and had just retired. This horrible disease has made my family and I very mad. I am Standing Up To cancer and will do my best to help support this cause.
Read a segment from Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission Statement: Working with the top experts in cancer research, Stand Up To Cancer is forging a new way to develop breakthroughs that will end cancer. We’re putting together the best and the brightest minds in cancer research – those on the edge of accomplishment – investing in their projects and taking the bureaucratic obstacles out of their way. We are building interdisciplinary “Dream Teams” of scientists, clinicians, technicians and other experts, who will focus on a specific cancer problem. We’ll track their progress in real time, so that everyone who invests can see how their participation is creating real change.
I personally kicked off my own campaign to do my part by using the convenience of the eBay Giving Works platform. I created: TheTravelingCharityBag.com and I will point this domain to each listing that goes into the Giving Works system helping a cause.
The traveling charity bag is launching off with eBay item number:160276749832.
