Since 1962, St. Jude hospital has been a symbol of hope for children and families in the need. As one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers, St. Jude hospital continues to provide the quality of research and treatment relying on the support of many donors to continue its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children.
Have you been looking to help someone in need? If so NBA cares a nonprofit organization should be at the top of your list of organizations you can go through to help those in need. NBA cares isn't just one organization its multiple under one common name. Some examples of programs NBA cares run are “hoops for troops”, “my brothers keeper”, and “NBA fit”. Based on this alone i think very highly of this program NBA cares. NBA Cares is a charitable cause to support because it's a platform that can't do wrong because the NBA won't risk losing their public image, they make sick kids dreams come true by meeting their favorite NBA stars and it's for a good cause because they make sick children days better.
Their goal focuses on engaging “the next generation of philanthropists to fund the highest-priority needs of the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).” This is for individuals who want to connect with others who feel passionately about the health and well being of children.
Central Idea: Many charities are deserving of support, but St Jude is truly special. Everything they do for these children makes their lives and their family’s lives just a little bit easier.
St. Jude’s target for marketing fundraising is far larger than most charities. Their target; preschoolers, professionals, 8th graders and 80 year olds, television, radio, local drives, school drives, trike-a-thons, math-a-thons, local, county, state and national events. Some of the big ones that you may be familiar with; the “Dream Home Giveaway”, the “Thanks and Giving Campaign” and the radio-a-thon “Country Cares”. Because of last year’s St. Jude’s NFL event, 18% of American’s said they planned to support St. Jude’s “Thanks and Giving Campaign” during this past holiday season. No opportunity is turned away.
Because this would be a charity event, there had to be a foundation or cause that all the profits would go to. It should be something that the people of Conant and surrounding areas could connect with and would be willing to donate to. If it is for a cause that the people believe in, more people would come to support the event, regardless if they are interested in the run itself or not. They would be willing to pay more for tickets if they knew that the money would be going to a cause that is near to their hearts. At first, the JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, seemed like a good place to donate to. This was because there are quite of few people at Conant who have juvenile diabetes and the annual JDRF walk would be the next day, so it could be a good way to join this event to the cause and promote the walk. But soon after learning about an eighth grade boy who goes to Mead Junior High has brain cancer, I wanted to help and thought that this was a good cause to support. The eighth grader, Alex, is from this area and would have been a student at Conant. There are many people in this area that would support this event because it is a part of the community and they would want to help out. There are two main charities that helped this cause. The Be Positive Foundation, helps kids with pediatric cancer and raises money to provide financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer. And at
As vice president of my school's NHS chapter, I am an advocate for good causes. Our service project this year is a substantial charitable endeavor. In 1996, a fellow NHS member and friend lost a sibling to SIDS. To assist his family's fight for a cure, our chapter initiated a fundraiser. Tee-shirt sales raised thousands of dollars; a ceremony at a football game advertised our cause to the community; our slogan “Big Steps for Baby Steps” galvanized the school; a partnership with the CJ Foundation for SIDS legitimized our efforts with sponsors. Each of the school's clubs and teams has dedicated itself to the cause. A 5k in May is our culminating event. Uniting an entire school and community behind such a worthy cause is gratifying. The other

Since I first delved into community service two years ago, I have not only found a passion for helping others, but also a sense of belonging. After my freshman year of highschool, I was lacking direction. I had no idea what I wanted to involve myself in, but I knew I wanted to start something to help people. Therefore, my friends and I created our own charity, The Pink Bowz. Since 2015, I have worked in my community to expand this organization which helps women battling breast cancer. The Pink Bowz has since completed approximately 200 hours of community service and donated over $5000 to five women in the Hampstead - Wilmington area. Through this experience I found a passion for the fundraising process. I campaigned at my school to start a

Have you heard about the 4K For Cancer? Well if you haven't I'm going to tell you all about it. When picking a non-profit organization I wanted to choose an organization that had a special place in my heart. This organization came to mind right away due to the fact that one of my family members participates in 4K For Cancer events. My cousin Brittany was apart of their 2015 New York team and our family came together to support her in anyway possible, especially fundraising. This organization does so much for young adults and it is also one of a kind.
The support of the club has given back to all areas of influence including schools, cemeteries, businesses, and programs such as the Warrior Outreach. The club has been involved with many outstanding events such as feeding the homeless; providing gifts for under privileged kids; partnering with local schools to help establish a positive foundation for the youth through interaction; clearing and cleaning overgrown cemeteries with the preservation society; and assisting with the restoration of homes belonging to citizens in the area. One of the most interesting things that the club does that should never go unnoticed is empowering and providing great leaders with an outlet to be able to do these amazing things. Individuals will struggle to find a way to make a difference in the community, but when like minded individuals come together the opportunities seem to present themselves in abundance.
