Bags for Boobies Brought in Over $10,000 – Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who participated in Bags for Boobies in June! Together we raised over $10,000 to help cancer patients in your community through our Gifts of Love program.

Gifts of Love are unique to each cancer patient’s needs and help improve their emotional well-being. Typical Gifts include mortgage or rent assistance, gas or grocery cards, a family weekend away, theater or concert tickets, or taxi or bus passes. Gifts of Love can go a long way toward improving a patient’s quality of life at a time when help is needed not only due to mounting medical bills, but also as they struggle with the realities of a cancer diagnosis.

You can still volunteer your time or provide a monetary donation to CHIX 4 a Cause. Visit our website at http://www.chix4acause.org. On behalf of cancer patients in your community, we thank you for your generosity.

​Celebrate Your Independence by Giving in Memory of Your Loved One

As you prepare to celebrate another Independence Day with family & friends, remember the lives of individuals who went before you and gave their all to ensure your quality of life was better than theirs. Although many of those individuals may have been veterans, they may also have been your mom, dad, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, cousin or friend. One way you can honor their memory is by volunteering your time or providing a monetary donation to benefit cancer patients through our Gifts of Love program.

Congratulations to Jillian Clark on Being a Champion of Change

On June 14, 2017, during a celebratory dinner hosted by the Volunteer Center of Washington County, CHIX 4 a Cause’s Visionary Founder/CEO Jillian Clark received a Champions of Change award. The awards are designed to recognize the efforts of ordinary people who inspire others by doing extraordinary things. Of the 10 award categories, Jillian was nominated for The Power of One: “an individual who has singlehandedly created change for the better in our community through their volunteer efforts.”

Here is an excerpt from the winning nomination letter, written by Jennifer Wills:

“In June 2014, Jillian helped me start my freelance writing career by letting me write grant proposals for CHIX 4 a Cause. Because I had greatly researched grant writing but had no experience creating proposals, I started as a volunteer grant writer with the promise of getting compensated from the general fund once grant money started coming in. As of April 2017, I am CHIX 4 a Cause’s go-to writer for grant proposals, weekly blog posts, website and trifold updates, editing, and other writing needs. I receive a monthly stipend as well as a bonus from the general fund for each grant received. My grant writing and blogging experience helped me secure other clients who pay me to write content for them. In March 2015, I was able to leave my full-time job and write from home. I have the freedom and flexibility to take on new projects, add to my skill set, and achieve my personal and professional goals.

Jillian continues inspiring me by providing everyone at CHIX 4 a Cause endless opportunities to develop as leaders and experts in our field. Because Jillian continually requests our input when setting and achieving goals for CHIX 4 a Cause, I’ve been able to expand my role with the organization and be a part of its growth. With help from other CHIX 4 a Cause advocates, I’ve secured funding for website updates, secured funding and created copy for Gifts of Love Boxes, created copy for both the website and trifolds, helped organize and participate in multiple Evening of Celebration events and other fundraisers, and raised CHIX 4 a Cause to Platinum status through GuideStar.

Jillian’s leadership style also inspires me to continue finding ways I can contribute to CHIX 4 a Cause. She defines ways we can help the organization and is available when we need her, yet gives us the space we need to complete our work. If someone is unable to carry out a request, Jillian completely understands and appreciates what we’re able to do. Because my contributions are always privately or publicly acknowledged, I actively find ways to add even more value to CHIX 4 a Cause. Being able to put into action what I learn when I write about leadership and organizational growth is extremely rewarding.”
