In their final days of the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge, Cure JM is so close to winning $100,000!
Cure JM is still in first place but their margin is shrinking.  Not only do they want to finish first to win the extra $100,000, but they want to exceed their goal of raising $200,000 so that they can put $300,000 towards research to help find a CURE!
“If you aren’t able to donate— it’s completely okay,” says fundraiser, Haley Ibrahim. “The holidays have just wrapped up and the credit card bills haven’t even arrived and we are asking for donations. If you’ve already donated, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Please don’t feel like you have to donate again; we just wanted to include you in the party. So, in an effort to do everything we possibly can to help Cure JM win, we are hosting a virtual event this Tuesday.”
This Tuesday – that’s January 7th, 2014, and we’re hosting ‘Brown Bag for CURE JM.’ Basically, if you typically grab a quick breakfast on the go or lunch out, we’re asking that you consider brown bagging it on Tuesday and instead donating that money to our cause. That’s it. One fabulous day of generous souls dining on a pop-tart or yesterday’s meatloaf instead of their usual:Grande Café Latte – $3.65 and a Starbucks Blueberry Muffin – $2.25


Chipotle Chicken Burrito $6.25 and a Regular Soda – $1.60

The minimum donation on the site is $10.00, so you’ll need to do a little creative rounding, like adding in the sales tax, cost of gas, your time, etc. but we’re confident the cost would be comparable.

All donations through January 8th at 11:59 pm EST will be automatically entered for a chance to win a Motorola Droid Mini from Cure JM! Now, let’s see your Grande Café Latte offer you that!

Then, invite everyone you know. Seriously, the more the merrier! In fact, if you work in an office or with a team please get them involved too! We’re pretty sure your New Year’s resolutions had something to do with eating healthy and being more charitable…this does BOTH! Here’s the deal. We are in the last mile of a marathon fundraising campaign. We are so close to reaching Cure JM’s goal of raising $200,000 plus $100,000 for winning; and we are not giving up.

We feel a $10 donation is doable for most people. But, if it’s not for you right now— that’s completely okay. We understand. However, if it’s something that you CAN do— if it’s $10 that might have been used for a daily treat or a lunch out then we respectively ask that you donate for all the sweet kiddos fighting every day for what most of us take for granted.
