Being diagnosed with cancer is expensive and almost all of us could use some help with those expenses. That is why the Testicular Cancer Society partners with GiveForward, a company that provides free fundraising pages to help with those medical expenses and out-of-pocket costs.
This Year Give the Gifts that Keep on Giving.
Good deals for a good cause just got a lot easier. The Testicular Cancer Society has now partnered with GoodSearch.com which means that every time you shop online a portion of your sale can be donated to support our cause. They will also make a donation for every time you do a web search (about a penny a search) via their Yahoo based search engine.
Simply, go to GoodSearch and enter the Testicular Cancer Society as your cause and click “Get started.” You can chose to continue without registering or you can register to track how much you have raised for the cause.
With GoodSearch you can shop at over 2500 stores and they will give to our cause. They also offer coupons so that you can save and they will still give to our cause. There is even an option for GoodDinning, where yep, you eat and they give to our cause.
Why not shop, search and dine like you normally would but do it through GoodSearch.com and do it for good.
You can watch their video to get a better idea how it works.
Thanks for Your Support,
When facing off against testicular cancer one thing that may come across your mind are the financial difficulties associated with the battle. Questions start to build up. Am I going to be able to work? How am I going to pay for treatments? Am I going to be able to pay my other bills? How can I get help?
Our first suggestion to help with the financial struggles is to set up a page on GiveForward. GiveForward provides free fundraising pages that empower friends and family to raise money for loved ones’ medical expenses. The website has helped thousands of families to raise millions of dollars for things like chemotherapy, organ transplant and travel expenses.
To give you more insight into GiveForward we asked friend and GiveForward Co-Founder Ethan Austin if he could share a few words with us about their services.
Mike asked me to write a post about why setting up a GiveForward fundraising page for a friend or for yourself is a good idea. Here are three good reasons!
Money: Each year cancer patients spend over $25 billion to pay for out-of-pocket costs like travel expenses and co-pays not covered by insurance. The reality is that no matter how wealthy a person is or how good his insurance plan is, everyone can always use a little extra money when facing cancer.
Hope: We hear all the time from users that as important as the financial support is, the words of encouragment from friends and family is sometimes even more important. [note, click on the "donors" tab in the link above to see the words of encouragement].
Empowerment: Friends and family want to help, but most of the time they feel helpless if they don’t live near the person battling cancer. By setting up a GiveForward page for a friend or for yourself you empower friends and family to actively participate in the recovery of someone they love.
Hope this helps! If you have any questions feel free to email me.
Keep in mind that GiveForward isn’t just for cancer fighters but rather for anyone that needs some help with fundraising. Many times people will set up an account at a local bank to accept donations but these banks don’t accept credit/debit card transactions and many people just won’t take the time to write a check and mail it. GiveForward not only accepts debit/credit card donations but also the link to your fundraising page can easily be sent via email or posted on websites.
