For Immediate Release
4 WORDS FOUNDATION INC. JOINS NEWMAN’S OWN FOUNDATION $500K HOLIDAY CHALLENGE ON CROWDRISE
Help 4 Words Foundation Inc. win $150,000 by donating to its CrowdRise campaign
N. FORT MYERS, FL– 4 WORDS FOUNDATION INC. has been accepted into the Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge, a fundraising competition on CrowdRise, the largest crowdfunding platform for good. Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge is a friendly fundraising campaign for eligible US-based 501(c)3 charities. Participating organizations will compete for half of one million dollars in prize money. 4 WORDS FOUNDATION INC. has joined the challenge on CrowdRise in hopes of raising money to support cancer awareness, education and patient financial assistance for ALL cancers in Southwest Florida
4 Words Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness about the importance of health screenings in the early detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer, as well as financially assist those who need additional non-surgical diagnostic tests and screenings in their diagnosis/treatment of cancer. This challenge is important to 4 Words Foundation because, as a small, local organization they work hard to solicit donations from the very generous individuals in their area but they can’t do this alone. It takes a community to care for each other. Funds raised during this challenge, along with the possibility of winning up to $150,000 would allow 4 Words Foundation to help more individuals afford their testing/diagnostic screenings/biopsies, etc. as well as, allow additional educational seminars on various cancer topics and to spread awareness on how taking care of your health is one of the most important things you can do for your family and yourself.
“Show the community you care. If we all help, we all win,” said Marie Springsteen, President of 4 Words Foundation.
The Newman’s Own Foundation $500k Holiday Challenge will launch on CrowdRise on November 21, 2017 at 12pm ET and runs through January 3, 2018 at 1:59:59pm ET. There are 10 grand prizes up for grabs with the team that raises the most online winning $150,000 and 10th place winning $2,500. On #GivingTuesday an additional $85,000 will be awarded to the top 3 charities. Plus, weekly Bonus Challenges enable charities to win up to another $115,000.
