My name is Rachel Posner and I am currently a graduating senior at the Fox School of Business at Temple University located in Philadelphia, PA. I see that cancer.blogs.com is an excellent way of informing people worldwide with the disease or without it about the global fight in fighting cancer. I think this blog website is excellent and really inspires and reaches out to this affected and those trying to help make a difference.

I think it’s fascinating the statistics mentioned in your most recent post about “fighting breast cancer worldwide.” These high numbers and whopping statistics are exactly why I wanted to help make a difference. Four others and myself have been involved all semester trying to make a difference working with the American Cancer Society for our Entrepreneurial Marketing class. We created a group called “Drink For The Cure” which involved getting the Philadelphia and Temple Community involved while having fun doing so. We held events at local bars on campus and dedicated a lot of our time in fundraising and marketing efforts. We created social media websites and our own original T-shirts where all profits from our fundraisers and events went entirely to the American Cancer Society.

Overall, our team was a complete success. We raised over $1,000 and were more than happy to sign a check off to the American Cancer Society. My team believed we could combine cancer research with the everyday college students’ nightlife activities. We wish to continue to unite thousands of other college students across the country so we can all come together as one and continue to help fight the cure.

Please note, our events are nowhere near about drinking. They are about bringing a bunch of people together that are all passionate about the fight for the cure, by having drink specials that bring awareness to all different types of cancer. We also raffled off raffle baskets worth $140 all to help raise money for cancer research. As the semester is coming to an end, any additional exposure we can get about our happy hours will continue to benefit the American Cancer Society.

Please check our page out on facebook: “Drink for the Cure” and I look forward to reading about your blogs about people fighting all around the world. They truly are inspiring to continue the fight and continue being a great impact on this disease.

Thank you for your time.
