This just in...

We have finalized our year-end numbers and, as always, we are overwhelmed with gratitude at what we are able to do with the donations of our supporters.

In 2015, The Cancer Card Xchange sent gifts filled with a total of $41,730 in gift cards to 501 people facing cancer.

Since 2011, CCX has sent $173,353 in gift cards to 1,894 people facing cancer.

Thank you for your continued support,
Emily Tickle Thomas
Founder and Executive Director

Wrapping Up 2015

What a year!

Our 3rd annual cocktail party fundraiser was held last week at the home of Walt and Kelli Geminn. CCX supporters enjoyed a festive night of food, drinks and music while raising nearly $6,000 to brighten the day of people who are facing cancer.

This event was a perfect ending to a banner year for The Cancer Card Xchange. We also wrapped up 2015 with a huge fundraising effort in November. A local charitable trust matched all donations in our $5k A Different Way campaign which resulted in a total of $20,000 in donations. These funds were used to purchase gift cards for our waiting list of patient referrals.

Several school and church groups collected gift card donations during the holiday season. These efforts make such a huge difference in our ability to send gifts out and involve kids in helping others.

Since June 2011, The Cancer Card Xchange has given away just shy of $170,000 in gift cards to over 1,800 cancer patients - spreading good in the world. 

Overwhelmed with gratitude,

Emily Tickle Thomas
Founder and Executive Director

$5K A Different Way - WE DID IT !

Guess what?

Because of lots of small donations and some medium donations and a couple of big donations, we raised $10,000 in November which will be matched 100% by a very generous local group who believes in what we do just like all of you.

Overwhelmed with gratitude.

$5K A Different Way - 1 Week to Go

A local charitable trust contacted The Cancer Card Xchange earlier this month because they wanted to be a part of our "$5K A Different Way Campaign." During the month of November, they are matching donations made to CCX up to $10,000 raised! 

WE HAVE COLLECTED $2,595 THIS MONTH WHICH IS $5,190 WITH THE MATCHING FUNDS.


These girls hosted a bakesale over the weekend and rasied $325 which equals $650!


Reminder: Many employers offer a matching program for charitable donations. If yours does, your donation to CCX could be QUADRUPLED this month. 

For example, if you make a $10 donation this month and your employer matches that $10 donation, that $20 donation will also be matched resulting in a $40 donation to CCX.
