In a special “Hour Against Cancer” micro-campaign, Illinois Valley area workers are asked to fight cancer and provide free supports to area cancer patients by donating whatever amount is equal to one hour of their working wage. Area workers may do so by clicking ‘Donate.’
The ” Hour Against Cancer” micro-campaign at www.cancerhour.com gained several area workers’ donations within minutes of its launch. “TYLER” donated $18.75; an anonymous employee donated $27; “Adriana” donated $8.70, and ” I work retail in LaSalle” donated $9.18″. Donors do not have to list their name or employer.
“Donating one hour’s wage to fight cancer is a noble and easy thing to do,” said campaign chairperson Mitch Landgraf. “Whether you are labor, management, or self-employed, consider what cancer does to a person, their family, and their loss of wages…and then please donate just one hour’s wage of your valuable, skilled, gainful employment to fight cancer and help local residents in need of cancer services.” If even 10% of Illinois Valley employees, independent contractors, and proprietors respond by donating one hour’s wage, the micro-campaign’s goal of $50,000 will be met.
Donations will count toward the historic “March To A Million” drive of the tenth anniversary year of Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley. More information about the broader campaign and the July Relay For Life event itself, is available at www.1mil.org. Questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The “One Hour Against Cancer” website is www.cancerhour.com.
Donations can be made for One Hour Against Cancer through the end of April.
