Some of you may remember that at the end of last year, Jeremy Schoemaker ran an auction to support Affiliate Marketers Give Back’s efforts to fight breast cancer. He agreed to wear the winner’s T-shirt of their choosing for 3 days during Affiliate Summit 2009 West and raised $10,000.00!
He’s back at it again; this time to benefit the Lincoln City Mission homeless shelter.
At the time of this post, the current bid on the auction is already at $1,200.00.
On behalf of Affiliate Marketers Give Back, I applaud Jeremy for his philanthropic efforts.
Way to go, Shoe!
Some of you may remember my friend Lynette. Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back walked in her honor last year during the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-day.
Lynette was 32 at the time — a healthy mother of 3 children. On a routine visit to her doctor, a lump was discovered and she was subsequently diagnosed with bi-lateral breast cancer.
Well, a year has passed and Lynette has survived. There’s been lots of ups and downs, but through everything, she has managed to stay strong and be one of the most positive people that I know.
I am so thrilled that she has decided to walk with the team this year during the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
If you’d like to make a donation in her name, please visit her fundraising page.
Affiliate Marketers Give Back will be holding a fundraiser during the Meet Market at Affiliate Summit East 2009, on Sunday, August 9th.
We’ll be giving away limited-edition Affiliate Summit Breast Cancer Awareness Hat with a $40.00 donation (that’s a donation of $1.00 per mile we’re walking!) and Affiliate Marketers Give Back Laptop Stickers with $10.00 donations made to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
Now, we’re looking for folks to help staff the table inside the Meet Market on Sunday, August 9th.
If you can work a 1-hour shift (or two) to help us with our fundraising, we could really use your help.
To volunteer please let us know by selecting your shift on our online scheduling tool.
For folks that won’t be attending Affiliate Summit, we’ll be happy to mail your hat or laptop sticker. Simply make a donation, and email you receipt along with your shipping address to missyward / at / gmail / dot / com.
