February Update



To date, The Cancer Card Xchange has made gifts of approximately $100 worth of gift cards each to 134 men, women and children with cancer all across the country. Our hope is simply that their day was brightened by this gesture of kindness.


We have recieved gift card and monetary donations from people in 19 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. This year, we hope to also obtain community grants and corporate donations to increase the number of gifts we are able to make.


CCX was notified of our 501(c)(3) designation by the IRS in late December making all donations to us tax-deductible. 


Recent press about CCX has included stories in The Daily Journal (Tupelo, MS) and The Daily News (Memphis, TN).


The only thing that matters is what all this means to CCX recipients. We received this note recently that explains everything,  "Thank you so much for the delightful surprise in my mailbox. It really made my day and made me so happy. I really appreciate your efforts to make us feel not forgotten and bring a ray of sunshine into our lives."


Our Facebook and Twitter pages are great ways to keep up with what's going on, read CCX recipient stories and hear about upcoming fundraising events. Please share CCX news with your friends and family.


Overwhelmed with gratitude,
Emily
