BENEFITING: GILDAS CLUB NEW YORK CITY
ORGANIZER: GILDAS CLUB NEW YORK CITY
For the second year in a row, Gilda's Club NYC is participating in the Revlon "Love is On” challenge. The mission of this challenge is to donate $1.4 Million to charities through friendly competitions every week during the campaign.
Gilda's Club provides free cancer support, education, and counseling for people living with cancer and their families. I joined Gilda's Club as a Volunteer in January of 2015, and I was immediately struck by the support and compassion that the members, volunteers and board members show for each other. It provides the emotional support which is so often lacking from cancer treatments, and the testimonials provided by the GCNYC members will move you to your core. I have seen the good that this club has done for so many individuals who are living with or touched by cancer, and my only wish is that I had known about Gilda's Club when my mother was living with Cancer. I know that she would have loved the community that is so warm and welcoming at every clubhouse.
So, I dedicate my participation in the Revlon "Love is On” challenge to my mother, whose sense of humor reminded me so much of Gilda’s. If you're feeling any love, or even if you're down on love, please consider donating to a cause that continually picks people up when they're at their lowest. $10, $15, $20 - anything you give will help Gilda's Club spread their love to those living with and impacted by cancer.
