Get Ready for Giving Tuesday!

Giving Tuesday is a worldwide day of sharing, with a focus on working together to change the world.

Celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is the nonprofit organizations’ response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday promotes the holiday season by encouraging donations to those in need.

On November 28, 2017, participate in Giving Tuesday by giving your time or a monetary donation to Chix 4 a Cause. Help make the holiday season a little brighter for cancer patients in your community through our Gifts of Love program. Encourage your family, friends, company and community to get involved as well.

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.

Promote the season of giving by donating to Chix 4 a Cause on Giving Tuesday. On behalf of cancer patients in your community, we thank you for your generosity.

Thank You for Participating in Our 2 nd Annual Glow 4 Hope 5K

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2 nd Annual Glow 4 Hope 5K on October 7. We closed out the 2017 Family Fall Fest at Veteran’s Park in Allenton, WI, with 28 participants running/walking in honor and memory of men and women fighting breast cancer. Cancer doesn’t stop because of the rain, and neither did we!

We extend a special thank you to Allenton voluntary firefighter Michael Retzlaff for walking in full gear to honor firefighters and their significant others who fought/are fighting breast cancer. He said he enjoys giving his time to great causes and helping others.

Proceeds from our 2nd Annual Glow 4 Hope 5K go to our Gifts of Love program. Gifts of Love are unique to each cancer patient’s needs and help improve their emotional well-being.

How a Gifts of Love Box Provides Emotional Support for Cancer Patients

As you know, Chix 4 a Cause uses our Gifts of Love program to provide short-term financial and long-term emotional support to residents of southeastern Wisconsin battling cancer. Typical Gifts, valued up to $1,500, include mortgage or rent assistance, gas or grocery cards, a family weekend away, theater or concert tickets, or taxi or bus passes.

As an extension of our Gifts of Love program, we created the Gifts of Love Box. Boxes can be purchased and shipped to cancer patients throughout the United States. Contents include items that our clients have expressed the greatest interest in. For example, we have essential oils “Grace,” “Hope” and “Love” created exclusively for us to help calm cancer patients and uplift their spirits. We also offer diffusers and rollers to maximize use of the essential oils. In addition, we provide necklaces and votive candle holders
with inspirational words “Grace,” “Hope” and “Love” to encourage an optimistic outlook on life. Furthermore, we provide a prayer shawl for cancer patients to stay warm throughout the day. Plus, we offer a CD with inspirational songs and a CD with guided meditation to provide emotional strength during battles with cancer. Customized add-ons, such as gift cards, are available as well.

Purchase a Gifts of Love Box, volunteer your time or provide a monetary donation today at http://www.chix4acause.org. On behalf of cancer patients everywhere, we thank you for your generosity.
