I was diagnosed with ocular melanoma in November 2012. One of the first things I did after the treatment of my primary tumor, was to search for more information online. I reached out to one organization called A Cure In Sight and offered to create a website for them. By January 2013, the site was live and I had researched available options for raising money for them. Here is a screenshot of the PuraVida Bracelets fundraising page.
In August 2018, I joined the Pura Vida Bracelets Affiliate Marketing Program, and sold bracelets online from this blog. I donated my profits to the annual Charity Fundraiser by my real estate broker, William Raveis Real Estate of Glastonbury, to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and once again, to A Cure In Sight. Earlier this year my profits went to my husband’s fundraising efforts in the 2019 Closer to Free Ride to benefit my hospital, Smilow Cancer Hospital.
Another way to raise money for your favorite charity, without having to join the Affiliate Marketing Program, is to create your very own Pura Vida bracelets! These one-of-a-kind bracelets come in two styles and are completely customizable with the colors that match your charity or school colors or even the colors of the season!
These bracelets are so affordable, they’d even make a great souvenier for attending an event! If your organization is tax exempt, after placing your order just send a quick email to email@example.com with your order number and tax exempt form, and they’ll refund your sales tax! It’s simple to begin! Learn more and order yours today!
