Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back held a fundraiser during the Meet Market at Affiliate Summit East 2009. Dozens of volunteers stepped up to help man the table where we solicited donations and gave away limited-edition Affiliate Summit Breast Cancer Awareness hats and laptop stickers donated by StickerGiant.com. During this event, $1,526.00 was raised!
On top of that, the JAR Group held a Kill Zombies for Charity fundraiser in their booth on behalf of Affiliate Marketers Give Back.
Well, the Affiliate Summit attendees killed enough zombies and answered enough questions to raise $1,482.00, which the JAR group rounded up to $1,500.00!
I can’t thank everyone enough who helped out with the fundraiser and donated what they could to help fight breast cancer.
Never let it be said that Affiliate Marketers don’t have the biggest hearts!
Jeremy (ShoeMoney) Schoemaker recently ran an auction on eBay for a company to have him wear their t-shirt for the three days of Affiliate Summit West 2009.
The bidding was up to about $2,500 with 24 hours to go, but increased to $5,200 at the end.
The winner was TrainSignal, a global leader in professional computer training.
In a selfless fashion, TrainSignal decided to bump up their donation amount to $10,000.00!
The funds from the auction are being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the official charity of Affiliate Summit West 2009.
Thanks a lot, ShoeMoney and TrainSignal! You are my heroes!
Today was my very first ever experience at a breast cancer walk and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. The amount of joy and happiness and love throughout the entire day made the blisters so worth it! I’ve shared a little insight into my experience here…
I’m not a morning person, but the day started out with so much pure joy, we couldn’t help to be delighted to be awake and surrounded by so many pink covered people. We stopped every few miles for snacks or potty breaks or toe bandaids. We walked and talked with total strangers. Shared many stories with eachother and all in all had a great beginning to this weekend’s journey.
I’m glad I’m here.
Our sponsorship shirts are now here and fabulous! This is me, Jen Goode, showing off our new stylish pink ribbon garb.
Again, thank you to Zazzle for providing these shirts, they turned out just beautifully! And thank you to all of our generous sponsors for supporting our team and helping to make this happen for us – you’re awesome!
Our walk is this Friday, September 12-14. Most of us will be arriving in Seattle on Thursday with bells on… or at least our cute pink shirts. I’m a little nervouse about the early mornings – but I’m excited for the event and looking forward to this fabulous experience. I imagine we’ll be walking in a sea of pink ribbon happiness – I can hardly wait!
Hopefully we’ll be able to share some photos and videos along the way. My camera batteries are charging right now!
