September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. Join Hope & Heroes in raising awareness about these diseases through our awareness campaign, “Give Them Hope. Be Their Hero.” September Initiative.”

YOU can be a hero to local children and families fighting cancer and blood disorders, like sickle cell, and receiving treatment at Columbia University Medical Center. If you’re a Facebook user, help spread the word and raise money with a Facebook Fundraiser!

Creating a fundraiser is simple, taking less than 10 minutes. Once your fundraiser is up and running, you can view the progress directly on your page. Our infographic explains the process in five, easy steps:

A Facebook fundraiser is a great way to connect your friends, families, colleagues, etc. to Hope & Heroes and Columbia’s life-saving work for children with cancer and blood disorders. Your supporters can make a donation of any amount right on your Facebook page and they can share the fundraiser with their network too.

Plus, the convenience of Facebook creates a seamless experience for you and those supporting your fundraiser. As Facebook charges no fees to nonprofits, you can feel confident in knowing that all donations go directly to Hope & Heroes, enabling us to provide exceptional care for our patients.

To get started, head to your Facebook page or visit Hope & Heroes on Facebook.
