Unfortunately, very few people know they should GO GOLD for pediatric cancer awareness. September is PEDIATRIC CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. My goal is to build awareness for pediatric cancer by having every school around the country GO GOLD this year. That’s why I created the Heart of GOLD program.
One year ago I started the Whip Pediatric Cancer Challenge. And an amazing thing happened. I started getting videos from preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, religious schools, and even universities around the world. Seeing all these kids GO GOLD to help other kids was incredible. Over and over again teachers, principals, school administrators and parents told me what an amazing experience it was to GO GOLD to help whip pediatric cancer. For inspiration, check out this video.
The Heart of GOLD program was launched in August 2016. I wanted to make GOLD part of the “back to school vocabulary”. I asked students to get involved and decorate a gold paper heart. Each student then asked their parents to donate a few dollars in an effort to whip pediatric cancer. The schools set up a day to do the “Whip Assembly”, all the kids wore gold shirts & brought in their donations. Although we may be young, we can make a BIG difference in this world!!!
In 2016 some amazing schools got the ball rolling – let’s keep it going!!!! I’m looking for volunteers (teachers or students) to organize a “Heart of GOLD ” event at their school. And I’ll make it super easy for you. Thanks to some generous supporters, I’ve put together a campaign in a box. Fill out the form on this page to request your kit – it’s FREE! Don’t miss this opportunity – Supplies are limited.
Your kit will contain:
The kit also includes instructions and access to a special section on my website that provides helpful information and tips on how to go gold at your school. If you have any questions, send me a message on Facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our goal is to send ONE MILLION gold paper hearts across the country! Can you help me do that?
We need to bring this to the attention of as many school teachers and principals as possible. Please share this page with as many people as you can. Thanks to 971 schools that requested kits, I reached my goal of distributing 500,000 gold hearts. I received numerous request asking if we will be doing this again next year. I checked with my sponsors and they are all in! So please sign up now for our 2017 campaign using the “Campaign In a Box” form shown on this page. Your kit will arrive in August 2017 in time for Pediatric Cancer Awareness month in September.
