Paint-the-Town-Pink – $7700 Raised for Yes Ma’am
Love Wyandotte Donation to Henry Ford Hospital Yes Ma’am
On Monday, November 18th, Amiba affliate Love Wyandotte made a public presentation of a check for $4,500 to our local breast cancer fundraising partner, Yes Ma’am, an organization that provides mammograms to women that are uninsured or for any reason can simply not afford one. This modest money was raised through our second annual Paint the Town Pink campaign that generated revenues through a fun run and a “Pink-a-Palooza” wrap-up party that celebrated victories, the lives of those lost, and those that dedicate their lives to helping in any way in this fight that 1 in 8 women have to fight some time in their lives.
Paint-the-Town-Pink, Month of Celebrating Survivors and Remembering Victims
Paint the Town Pink is an umbrella that Love Wyandotte creates, under which all manner of other efforts can take place and get publicity and gain awareness. On this same night, for instance, our high school marketing class presented another check for $3,200, money these kids raised themselves within their school. We take no credit for these efforts, except to note that the odds are that they would not have happened without our calling attention (it never did before last year, anyway…) But really, we were just so proud to have helped, and we were very happy indeed to be recognized as the young organization we are (last year’s efforts were the seed-work for our establishment in February of this year). We are, in fact, in the process of establishing an on-going, constant relationship with Yes Ma’am for all manner of things throughout the year(s).
5K Pink Run
Being a part of such initiatives is rewarding and humbling and satisfying in ways that just can’t be described, but most would understand without words. Having this annual event series as part of our so-called signature is an excellent “actions speak louder than words” representation of our commitment to the community we seek to provide upward energy for.
