Thank you so much for being a part of our Share Hope Campaign!
We wanted to provide you with some information to send out to your contacts. (Updated 5/18/20)
Here are some general templates to spread awareness about the campaign:
Here is a sample email to get the word out now that the challenge has started. We encourage you to personalize it as much as possible with your own cancer story and/or why you are involved in our organization:
I hope my message finds you and your loved ones safe and well during this health crisis. The fear, anxiety, uncertainty, and stress you are experiencing during this health crisis is how cancer patients and their loved one feel every day. With everyone feeling the acute impact of coronavirus, the stressors for those impacted by cancer are only increasing.
Help me Share Hope to those individuals and families through CSCCNJ’s Share Hope Campaign. In these unprecedented times, cancer patients and their loved ones need emotional and social support now more than ever. May is National Mental Health Awareness Month and it’s my goal to Share Hope in the cancer community.
We’re just getting started and can’t wait to make a difference in the lives of thousands impacted by cancer in New Jersey. You can easily donate by clicking here. I’m really passionate about CSCCNJ’s mission and can only imagine the amazing things that will be possible with the money raised.
Thank you in advance for your support. Your generosity helps Cancer Support Community Central NJ continue providing virtual emotional and social support services, at no charge, to individuals and families affected by cancer. So that no one faces cancer alone. Click here to learn more about CSCCNJ, or call 908-658-5400.
