In February 2009, ePromos employee Stacey Lewis lost her father to Leukemia after bone marrow transplant complications. In the wake of her loss, Stacey made a promise to honor her father’s life and legacy by giving back. To keep her promise she co-founded The Silver Project, a program designed to raise donations for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation.
Since Stacey works with promotional products for a living, she knew that selling branded items to raise donations would be an effective fundraising strategy. She decided to use a calendar filled with inspirational photography taken by her friend Stephanie Markell, images that captured the essence of the project’s mission: Motivate. Inspire. Remind. Give back.
Two weeks after the idea was hatched, The Silver Project had already sold over 1,000 calendars and raised more than $25,000 for the Gift of Life. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the calendar cleared 350 bone marrow donor kits off the waitlist, and one of the sponsored kits lead to a life-saving match for a patient in need.
This year, Stacey and her partners at The Silver Project hope to eclipse the outstanding results of their innaugural year and save even more lives. Custom calendars are currently on sale for $25 each, and make fantastic and charitable holiday gifts for your friends, family members, or clients. ALL of the net proceeds will benefit the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, and the charitable portion of your purchase is 100% tax deductible.
Please help Stacey and The Silver Project meet their goals for an incredible cause! They are off to a great start, but still have some calendars left to sell.
