September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14 per the American Cancer Society?
In support and to help find a cure, SDMB Cares will be fundraising! Our monthly community service event will help to raise funds as we partner with Unravel Pediatric Cancer, a nonprofit whose focus is providing education, awareness, and support to help “Unravel” Pediatric Cancer.
SDMB Cares Pop Up Shop!
SDMB Cares will be hosting a POPUP Bake Sale on Sunday, September 23rd from 12-4pm to benefit Unravel Pediatric Cancer. Onstage Playhouse in Chula Vista has graciously offered to host us! Our shop will be set up in front of the theater to coincide with their Sunday matinee. This will be during the opening weekend of their next production, “All My Sons” by Arthur Miller.
This event will teach your children:
– Foster a belief in the importance of giving back to charitable causes
– How to create and run a fundraiser
– Kids will learn about entrepreneurship
– Build math, sales and communication skills
We are seeking out volunteer families to help us work our tables in short shifts.
Everything from selling and encouraging passerby to stop and purchase. Baked goods will be donated from local bakers. Proceeds from the bake sale will be donated directly to the organization. As with all of our events, all members of the community are welcome, and all ages — feel free to bring dads, grandmas, aunts, etc!
Want to host a Pop-Up Bake Sale in your neighborhood??
If you are unable to make it to our SDMB Cares event, we encourage you to host your OWN popup bake sale and raise money for Unravel Pediatric Cancer! Connect with a local school, church or agency and set up a table! Bake your own goods and have the kiddos help you sell! OR host an “Imaginary Bake Sale” by having a potluck or dinner party and save the money you would have spent going out, and donate those funds to the organization!
Email [email protected] for more information on hosting your own bake sale. If you participate, PLEASE send us your pics and/or tag us @SDMBCares/#SDMBCares on IG and FB!!
Whoever raises the MOST money for Unravel Pediatric Cancer will be FEATURED on the blog and all throughout social media sharing your success.
If you or someone you know is interested in donating, please contact us at [email protected].
SAVE THE DATE – Unravel The Night San Diego is set for Saturday, November 17th from 6-11pm at the Central Library Downtown.
