If you have been affected by cancer (and who hasn’t in some way) I just wanted to mention a great opportunity to share your story and make a donation to support cancer research in Canada. It is called Why I Give and it is an initiative to not only allow people to make donations to a worthy cause but to tell their story of what inspires them to give. So if you lost a friend or family member to cancer you can tell their story in whatever way you want in hopes that it will in turn inspire others to donate.
If you are worried about revealing too much, there is even a means to tell your story anonymously. Please take a moment to head over and help see this worthy site take off.
(Full disclosure: my brother is one of the students who started this initiative. The donations and site however are very real.)
