So far, our team has collected in online donations $7,695.00. My online collection is $660.00 plus an additional $220.90 in cash donations. You can follow how well I am doing at the Canadian Cancer Society webpage.
In addition to participating in this fundraiser, I will donate 15% of any sale made from both my Etsy and ArtWanted stores to the Canadian Cancer Society in honour of my brother Mike, who recently lost his battle with this disease.
I have also set up a permanent store where 100% of the profits will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. The TeamMike store sells bookmarks and only bookmarks.
The money raised helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
