SMS and offer Hope this Festive Season
Perspective; when you change it, you have the most productive word in the dictionary.
Often when we think of someone who has been diagnosed with a dread disease like leukaemia, we only focus on that one person; how he or she must feel and his or her strength and courage to fight this dread disease. All too often this person’s family, friends and colleagues are not included in our thoughts. However they too, will be traumatised, frightened and their lives will also be greatly affected and forever changed.
When we look at the circle of people who will be touched, this changes our entire perspective.
With every donor The Sunflower Fund recruits, with every rand of fundraising, with every awareness drive, we are giving a chance of life to someone’s child, someone’s parent, someone’s friend. The Fund is driven by this purpose.
For us and our Sunflower Community, a donation is a symbol of hope. We urge all South Africans to spare a thought and take the time to SMS “Gift” to 40555. This will cost you R20 and for that we are eternally grateful.
Funds raised through this SMS campaign will contribute to creating awareness around the need for stem cell donors and allow The Sunflower Fund to pay for the test costs of people wishing to join the national registry.
“The funds raised during this campaign helps The Sunflower Fund deliver on our mission – to increase the South African Bone Marrow Registry with committed donors, giving Hope of life to those in need of a stem cell transplant” stated Alana James, CEO of The Sunflower Fund.
