September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and while the issues and obstacles may seem overwhelming, there are little things you can do to Go Gold 4 CURE and help children with cancer. Whether you donate to advance research, display a gold bow, or share a Facebook post, many small actions can work together to make a big difference.

To help you narrow it down, here are 19 things you can do for children with cancer.

1. Get a gold bow for your mailbox – these beautiful bows share CURE with everyone driving past your house. Thanks to your incredible generosity, we are sold out for 2021 in Atlanta.

There are still bows available for Bryan County, Bluffton, and Effingham County HERE.

2. Host a Coins4CURE coin drive in your office or child’s school. Coins4CURE has made more than $370,000 for CURE one quarter at a time. Sign up at Coins4cure.org.

3. CURE’s Kids. Every day during September we share the stories of kids who have fought cancer. Our homepage will rotate daily to the featured pictures with links to their story and we will share them on our social media. Take a minute to read about these heroes, donate if you’re able, and share them with your friends.

4. We have businesses all over the state that are partnering with us during September. All month long, you can get a burger, enjoy chicken salad, or splurge on a donut that benefits CURE. Click HERE to support the businesses that support CURE.

5. Restaurants and businesses also host percentage nights where a portion of the proceeds from your purchase will benefit CURE. Take a look at our Calendar and make plans to visit those around you.

6. Do you own or frequent a business that would GoGold4CURE for a percentage night? We will provide everything you need to get started. Simply contact Kristen Rudio at [email protected] if you have an idea!

7. Start a Facebook Fundraiser. This is a great way to share our cause with your friends and family while raising important funds to help. Click HERE to set yours up.

8. Visit the CURE Store. By buying and wearing a CURE t-shirt, hat, or necklace, you are helping us to conquer childhood cancer while sharing the mission at the same time. Shop Now!

9. Add CURE’s September logo to your emails and everyone you email will know you support CURE. Click HERE to download. Be sure to link it to http://gogold4CURE.org.

10. If you are involved with a school, try to plan a Gold-Out Games. Most schools have been affected by pediatric cancer in some way and this is a great way to energize students for a good cause. Contact Kristen Rudio at [email protected] for more information.

11. Love golf? There are two golf tournaments benefiting CURE on September 24. Enjoy a round of golf in the 32 annual Golf Classic for CURE in Covington or the HRA Foundation Charity Tournament in Villa Rica and support CURE at the same time.

12. Add a donation sticker to a post or story on Instagram. Click HERE for instructions.

13. Grab your sneakers and run a 5k in Athens. The 5k for Kappy will be a special race in memory of Catherine Williams that benefits CURE. This race is moving to the spring due to COVID-19 concerns. Information about a virtual race in September will be available soon on our social media and HERE.

14. Add our Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Facebook Frame to your profile picture. We will share it on Facebook at the beginning of September.

15. Download our September poster and hang it up at your favorite stores and restaurants. Click HERE to download.

16. Get your car washed in loving memory of Lake Bozman in Marietta on September 11. Click HERE for details.

17. Send our Text-to-Give link to five friends and tell them to text FIGHT to 443211 – it’s that easy!

18. Follow us and share our posts on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. This is an easy way to help us get the word out.

19. Host your own lemonade stand, chili cookoff, or other neighborhood event. The sky is the limit to what you can do. You can do it all yourself or use our handy DIY Fundraising site!

September is an important month for CURE, and we can’t do it alone. But with everyone working together, we can really make a difference for kids this year! If you need any help or direction, please reach out – we would love to talk to you. Please email Kristen Rudio at [email protected].
