Every 3 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with blood cancer like leukemia or lymphoma. This is a startling statistic, and it can affect anyone. For many blood cancer patients, a bone marrow transplant is the only hope for survival. Dog Mom Days has partnered with Team DKMS, and I’m offering a great giveaway for anyone willing to assist in this fundraiser!
DKMS is part of the world’s largest network of bone marrow donor centers – leading the fight against blood cancers and disorders by growing the international bone marrow registry and connecting patients with lifesaving donors. My brother-in-law, Hashi, is running in the NYC Triathlon with Team DKMS on July 16th. Hashi and my sister, Kim, have set a goal to raise just $2000, which will go directly to matching patients with donors. NONE of the money raised goes to operating costs or anything of that nature. If you donate to this cause, you are saving lives.
DMKS is a 501c-3 non-profit organization which has registered more than 6.8 million donors and facilitated over 60,000 transplants. That’s A LOT of life saving going on, and YOU can be a part of it!
Every 10 minutes, someone in the U.S. dies from blood cancer and Hashi is dedicated to fighting back. This is exactly why he is racing in the New York City Triathlon on July 16, 2017 and committing to raising $2,000 to benefit DKMS. 100% of every dollar raised will go directly to registering potential new bone marrow donors who may be the cure for a patient in need.
I rarely ask my readers for help and I wouldn’t be asking for yours if this cause was not important to me. No contribution is too little – even $1 is tax deductible!
Giveaway and Recognition
Each one of my readers who donates $10 or more to this life-saving cause will get a special shout out on my blog and social media. If you donate $25 or more, you will also receive a special ‘thank you’ note in the mail from Wynston as a token of appreciation!
If you donate $25 or more directly to Hashi’s DKMS donation fund, you will automatically be entered to win a $25 PetSmart gift card! (I will require a minimum of five total entries to run the giveaway, which means five people need to donate at least $25). Please note that every entry will be verified, so make sure to use your real, full name on the donation form found here. This is NOT a Go Fund Me page – this fundraiser is directly through DKMS. Also on the donation form in the “note” section, please include Dog Mom Days giveaway, so I’m sure to include you in the gift card raffle.
All you have to do to get entered to win the gift card is donate $25 or more by clicking the button below! Make sure to include “Dog Mom Days giveaway” in the note section of the donation form.
Remember on the donation form on the website:
- Use your full name.
- Use a good email address.
- Include “Dog Mom Days giveaway” in the note section. The note is not published anywhere – only my brother-in-law and sister see the note since they are managing the fundraiser.
