This week we had the pleasure of speaking with a strong woman who is a loving mother, proud grandmother and a cancer survivor. Thirty-one years ago, Ms Donna Coykendall had a two-week-old son when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As she puts it, she began the “fight of her life” and started aggressive chemo and radiation treatments. By the time her son celebrated his first birthday, she was cancer free. Years late, she now has a bill of good health, three children, five grandchildren and a whole new mission: helping to fund research to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancer diseases. Learn more about her story as well as how you can help contribute to her fundraiser.
“We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for our amazing, generous volunteers.” Mixed Bag Designs recently had a chance to sit down and speak with Cheryl Eitz, the event coordinator and fundraising chair for the Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue non-profit organization. She had originally worked with MBD to run a fundraiser to raise extra funds for the organization, and as we learned more about the group’s mission, we wanted to help get the word out.
Fortunately, part of working in the fundraising business means that we meet and work with people who are striving to reach their goals. We are lucky in that part of job is working to support some pretty inspiring causes. The stories behind the fundraisers and the subsequent fundraising success stories motivate us to work harder each season to provide fresh and fun designs that will increase profits for every fundraiser we work with. This fundraiser to support an animal rescue organization in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana is one of those stories that makes us pause, reflect and also inspires the team behind the fundraiser to get the story out to help raise money for the cause.
