Plan a One Million Ripples Fundraising Event
to Create a Wave of HOPE!
Fundraising Event Ideas and Resources
No cancer story takes place without Ripples of Hope from family, friends, strangers, doctors, nurses, and so many more. Each of these ripples will connect to create One Million Ripples, with the goal of raising ONE MILLION DOLLARS and shaing ONE MILLION STORIES by December 31, 2018. Organizing a RIPPLE event is a lot of fun.
Fundraising Event Ideas:
Schedule your ONE MILLION RIPPLES event at a time that does not conflict with other events in your community.
We can help you plan your ONE MILLION RIPPLES event and provide educational materials and possibly schedule speakers to attend your event.
Promotion and Publicity
There are many ways to get the word out about your ONE MILLION RIPPLES event, including word-of-mouth, letters, e-mails, posters,print, and radio and television media.
You may want to procure a celebrity guest who might be willing to use their voice.
Choose an individual or medical professional to honor for their work in the field of advanced cancer.
Other Great Ideas
Approach corporate sponsors to support your event to create even more RIPPLES.
Ask local businesses to donate silent auction items for your event.
Raffle donated items such as vacation homes and time-shares or wine at your event.
Publicity and Advertising
The more people that know about your event, the more successful it will be. Start early and spread the word about your event as
soon as you set the date, time and location.
The YES mission with ONE MILLION RIPPLES is for you to create a personal RIPPLE and see where your RIPPLES begin and end. The more personal your event is, the more RIPPLES your event will create in your community.

ONE MILLION RIPPLES Traveling Gallery
YES is pleased to offer our ONE MILLION RIPPLES Traveling Photo Gallery to those hosting an event to benefit YES.. This exhibit
is dedicated to explaining this poorly understood, oft forgotten population of cancer survivors. The traveling gallery consists of portraits
shared by survivors of advanced cancer or families affected by advanced cancer, sharing their story through their own words. It is a
powerful display of the often positive, powerful side of LIVING with advanced cancer on families around the world.
Please contact Tami Thennis (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in using The Traveling Photo Gallery at your upcoming
event or would like information on how to become a part of our traveling exhibit.
