Our Purple Hair Challenge Continues!

On April 1, 2016, CHIX 4 a Cause kicked off our Purple Hair Challenge. We are again promoting our Challenge to everyone, especially you.

As a tie-in with April 1 being April Fool’s Day, the City of West Bend officially proclaimed April as “Cancer’s Not Fooling Around and Neither Are We” month. CHIX 4 a Cause challenges everyone, especially you, to temporarily dye or streak their hair purple, add a purple hair extension, or wear a purple wig to show support for cancer patients. Participants may then post a picture or video on our Facebook page and/or make a financial contribution to benefit 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.

Accept our Purple Hair Challenge today! Post your purple hair pictures and/or videos on our Facebook page and make donations at http://www.chix4acause.org. Thank you for supporting cancer patients in your community!

Where:
Washington County Fair Park and Conference Center, 3000 Hwy. PV, West Bend, WI

When:
Saturday March 18, 2017 9 am – 1 pm

Why:
This LiFE OF HOPE fundraiser increases awareness of suicide prevention and promotes hope and healing for those who are struggling, including individuals, family & friends.

CHIX 4 a Cause CEO/Visionary Founder Jillian Clark will be participating in LiFE OF HOPE’s 2nd Annual BEHIND THE MASK Brunch & Fashion Show on March 18, 2017, from 9 am – 1 pm at the Washington County Fair Park and Conference Center in West Bend, WI.

To gain more insight into the fundraiser, I interviewed LiFE OF HOPE Board member and BEHIND THE MASK Chairperson Sara Poupore and LiFE OF HOPE Volunteer Committee member Annette Wahnschaffe.

Through the encouragement of her friend Deeatra Kajfosz, Founder and Executive Director of LiFE OF HOPE, Sara became involved with the nonprofit organization because of her work as a nurse practitioner in the emergency room of a large hospital. She often treated patients who attempted suicide at least once and noticed various patterns among those individuals. Many patients lacked financial support from their source of income and emotional support from their family and friends. Many patients were children facing life-altering circumstances they didn’t know how to adequately cope with. Other patients were individuals suffering from chronic pain or elderly people dealing with their family and friends passing on. Many patients were veterans, drug addicts, or people who had trouble dealing with losing a loved one to suicide.

Annette joined LiFE OF HOPE because the issue of suicide prevention really hit home for her. She is a strong advocate of LiFE OF HOPE’s three pillars of influence – awareness, education, and support – and strongly supports their QPR Certification program (question, persuade, refer).

The 2nd Annual BEHIND THE MASK Brunch & Fashion Show will include a live auction, cash bar, silent auction, catered lunch and refreshments, skit from the West Bend High Schools’ Drama Club, fashion show from retailers in the West Bend area and beyond, and a performance from the Brookfield Dance Academy.

The featured speaker is West Bend native Anthony Anderson, an Iraq War veteran known for walking 2,700 miles from the War Memorial Center in Milwaukee, WI to Santa Monica, CA. He wanted to clear his head of the anger and emotional detachment he had been carrying since returning home from Iraq and raise awareness of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which veterans typically face. Anthony’s journey will be the subject of the documentary “Almost Sunrise” that will premiere at Mountainfilm in Telluride, CO, Memorial Day weekend of 2017.
