October has been associated with the color pink to represent National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You will see people wearing pink and showing their support with various charitable fundraisers to help raise funds and awareness. Jacobs & Wallace is committed to showing our support. Once again we are running a special social media campaign to raise funds and awareness for a local charity, called the Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation. This outstanding organization has helped thousands of families who are financially struggling across five states (including Connecticut) with non-medical expenses, after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
The campaign is running on the firm’s Facebook account during the entire month of October. We are giving $1 for each Facebook engagement (Like, Follow, Comment or Share) to the Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation. The donation will represent the total number of engagements on our Breast Cancer Awareness posts and on our page throughout October. On November 1st we will share the total number of engagements and let you know the amount we are donating.
You can help make a difference by visiting our Facebook page and liking our page and post. Also by sharing it! Click here to visit our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JacobsWallaceLaw/
About the Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation
The Breast Cancer Emergency Aid Foundation (B.C.E.A.F.) believes no one should have to choose between chemotherapy and a roof over their heads. Since 2006, B.C.E.A.F.’s supporters and volunteers have helped over 3,400 patients throughout Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. B.C.E.A.F. focuses on providing financial assistance for the non-medical expenses survivors and families do not plan for after they are impacted by breast cancer.
Many patients cannot work or lose their employment while undergoing cancer treatments. Caregivers and family members may also have to quit their jobs to take care of their loved ones full time. When patients who are financially struggling are referred to B.C.E.A.F. by nurses, social worker, and other services providers, our team provides direct financial support in the areas needed most, including:
- Specialty bras
- Car payments and auto insurance
B.C.E.A.F. has helped thousands of survivors across the region, but their efforts are far from over. As hundreds of thousands of patients become newly diagnosed with cancer every year, survivors are in need of more support than ever before.
Jacobs & Wallace Gives Back To Breast Cancer Survivors
This year, our team at Jacobs & Wallace is thrilled to be joining B.C.E.A.F. in their mission to support breast cancer survivors. To help, we will be donating $1 for every Facebook engagement we receive to B.C.E.A.F. to go towards the countless essential services they provide.
From now until the end of October, every ‘Like,’ ‘Follow,’ ‘Share,’ or ‘Comment’ we receive on our Facebook page will equal a $1 donation. It only takes a few clicks to make a significant difference in a survivor’s life, and a couple ‘pokes’ at your friends and family to encourage them to do the same.
If you’re looking to get more involved with B.C.E.A.F., there are a few ways to provide your support:
- Volunteer: The B.C.E.A.F. is an organization run by volunteers and fueled by generosity. They are always looking for local volunteers to help!
- Give A Drop: The B.C.E.A.F. Glass Drop Charm is a beautiful reminder that kindness and compassion are gifts for both the giver and the recipient. You can purchase this beautiful piece of art for $20, and all funds go to support a survivor of breast cancer.
- Donate: Donations are the bread and butter of any organization. Providing even a small contribution can make a huge difference in the life of someone struggling with breast cancer.
