August Featured Charity: Stand Up To Cancer
Living Philanthropic is proud to announce that the featured charity for August 2011 is Stand Up To Cancer. I am also proud to announce that we have an anonymous matching donor for this month who will be matching the first $1,000 in donations made to the Crowdrise Team page!
This is an amazing opportunity to double your impact, turn your $10 contribution into a $20 donation! I could not be more grateful for this generous kindred spirit, especially to a cause that is close to my heart. In 2010, I lost 3 dear people to cancer and this year many of my friends have lost relatives to cancer or are currently battling a form of cancer. So, let’s all join together and STAND UP TO CANCER in memory of those we have lost and in honor of those who are fighting it.
Stand Up To Cancer is a new initiative created to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. SU2C’s goal is to bring together the best and the brightest in the cancer community, encouraging collaboration instead of competition. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort. http://www.standup2cancer.org

Living Philanthropic was founded in April 2010 as one man’s mission to give to charity everyday for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don’t have to be rich in dollars to make a difference; you only need to be rich in spirit. After completing his 365 day mission, the spirit of giving everyday carries on through his friends and in his mission to continue his micro-philanthropy for a second year.
