Build an App for Love Notes Around The World

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: American Cancer Society, Inc. | West Region



QUICK OVERVIEW

We are seeking pro bono assistance to build an app, primarily for iPhone users to start, surrounding our Love Notes Around The World initiative.

IMPACT

We have delivered more than 40,000 cards to cancer patients via individuals and groups worldwide. The emphasis is on caring, compassion, and connection.

This is a volunteer-led platform where people can create or access messaging to send to cancer survivors, care providers, first responders, and others. Love Notes Around The World began when our volunteers were delivering cards to cancer patients in hospitals during treatment, and has grown into a global movement.

VOLUNTEER ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES

We need help to set up an App for greater ease with this initiative via phones. It has a website and social media handles already in place



REQUIREMENTS

Someone that has developed an App previously, nonprofit volunteer experience is a plus but not required

ACCESSIBILITY

This can be a virtual volunteer activity.

Mission Statement

Relay For Life is a community-based fundraising event for the American Cancer Society and many other Cancer related institutions, societies and associations. Each year, more than 5,000 Relay For Life events take place in over twenty countries. Events are held in local communities, university campuses and in virtual campaigns. As the American Cancer Society's most successful fundraiser and the organization's signature event, the mission of Relay For Life is to raise funds to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer, and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers.

Description

The Relay is on May 9, 2020 from 10am-10pm at Lincoln Elementary School (2223 Plant Ave. Redondo Beach CA 90278), and I'm hoping your troop might be available and interested in being a part of it!

Our theme this year is youth-focused - with children's performances and fun family activities.

We are looking for day-of-event volunteers and teams to participate in the 2020 Beach Cities Relay For Life raising funds for cancer research, services and advocacy through ACS. You are more than welcome to share and circulate this email as well. I'm very happy to answer and questions or concerns you may have.

Gold Together Team: Only 4% of cancer research funds go towards studying pediatric cancer annually, and we want to bring awareness to this statistic and support pediatric cancer patients. There's a lot of different ways you can help with this goal! Gold Together is a new Team that must raise $5,000 and whose proceeds 100% go to pediatric cancer research. There is only one Gold Together Team for each Relay. If you know of a child that you would like to honor or memorialize, please do let me know. https://www.goldtogether.com/

Team Information: To sign up a team, please go to the Beach Cities Relay For Life 2020 Website: www.RelayForLife.org/BeachCitiesCA

Luminaria honors every life touched by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently battling, or anyone who's overcome it. Asking people to dedicate a Luminaria in the name of a loved one is a great way to show everyone affected by cancer. It will also add to your fundraising and get you closer to raising $100 and becoming a Relay For Life Hope Club member.
