Yesterday was World Cancer Day so we held a contest within a contest to help spread awareness, especially about childhood cancers. In our current GAME ON contest we have invited folks to send us photos of SEE’S Candies or of the decorations at SEE’S. However, in honor of World Cancer Day we expanded this contest and asked folks to send us any photo that had to do with Valentines. For entries received on this day only we would donate $10 per photo to the Juliana’s Journey Foundation special fundraising efforts at GO FUND ME for the clinical trials up at UCSF. More information HERE and you can also make a donation to this very worthy cause.
There was a huge explosion of entries late in the evening and Everything South City capped our donation at $300 to help with this clinical trial fundraising effort.
WE CHALLENGE OTHER
INDIVIDUALS TO MATCH OUR
DONATION!! CLICK HERE!
All those who have entered will be included in our Valentine GAME ON contest and the winner will be randomly chosen and announced on February 10 and will receive a gift certificate for SEE’S. Please continue to send your SEE’S photos to us to be eligible to win. Photos can be send to EverythingSouthCity@gmail. com
We received many comments on our facebook page about those who have battled cancer and our hearts go out to all. Here is a post we shared:
There is not a single one of us that has not been touched by cancer in some way. Many are battling for their lives today, many have found another life in remission, yet others sadly are taken away with angel wings.
Our heart goes out as we receive this post just now:
My Forever Valentine friend lost her fight with cancer on December 21st, 2013 (Breast cancer). She was only 35 years old and left behind 2 young boys. She will forever be in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. -Jorge Junior
