May - A Big Month for CCX

After being notified that CCX won the Style Blueprint Memphis $5,000 Grant Contest, a generous donor agreed to match any donation given between May 20-26. In response, a total of 45 people donated $1,410.

So, yes, in addition to winning $5,000 in the contest (as a write-in candidate), The Cancer Card Xchange also raised $2,820 through this separate fundraising effort.

PLUS, $700 was donated in the hours just before the contest winner was announced after a Facebook suggestion by a dear friend of mine from high school.

All of this adds up to a total of $8,520 in donations, which will be used to brighten the day of many, many people facing cancer all over the United States.

Again, thank you to my friend Debbie for saying "Hey, there's this contest we should enter CCX as a write-in."

As always, overwhelmed with gratitude. 

And, people are good,
Emily Tickle Thomas
