A Few of Our Greatest Campaigns
Kyherra (Give A Spit About Cancer)
“I was raised by my great grandmother who passed away from cancer. It would be an honor to give hope to someone else knowing how painful losing a loved one to cancer can be.”
Emmanuel (Sincerely, Us)
“I have friends who are Muslim, and I know this is a difficult time for them physically, mentally, and spiritually. It is important to me to show them support.”
Andrea (Rinse, Recycle, Repeat)
“Recycling is pivotal in terms of maintaining the environment. I encourage people to come together as a community and help save the environment!”
Kathleen (Pride Over Prejudice)
“This is important to me because coming from an immigrant family I can only feel empathy for those affected by the ban. Please stop the hate.”
Zoe (Suspended for WHAT?!)
“Controlling a child's education can let you control their future, so ensuring that students feel safe enough to speak out to authority and share their ideas freely is crucial.”
Karun (Mirror Messages)
“I have seen multiple people going through some hard situations in the army, so if I could do something to make my battle buddies’ lives awesome, my day would be awesome.”
