12 Ways to Support #TeamNoCancer
Dear Friends and Family—

Did you know that 1.1 million Americans suffer from blood cancers? And that leukemia is the most deadly form of cancer in kids? And that 55,000 Americans die each year from blood cancers?

Those are facts.

And here is another fact: you can do something about it.

I’ve launched #TeamNoCancer, a national fundraising campaign on behalf of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, with a mandate to raise $18,000+ byJune 14, 2014. 100% of the tax-deductible proceeds go to LLS to fund research that will eradicate blood cancers forever. 

Our challenge is a daunting task, but with your help, we can make it a reality. 

Here are 12 ways YOU can support #TeamNoCancer TODAY:

1. Donate online! It’s so easy! Click here: http://www.mwoy.org/pages/nca/dcmetro14/teamnocancer

2. Donate by check. I can send you the logistics.
4. Forward this email to 10 friends.
5. Tweet about us on the Twitter using #TeamNoCancer!
6. Ask your company to match your donation.
7. Connect me to your company’s donation folks — there are awesome ways for companies to get involved! We have national and local sponsorships, advertising opportunities, in-kind services, and more!
8. Ask a professional association you are a part of to join #TeamNoCancer by activating their membership!
9. Provide an incentive for people who donate. We already have a great partnership with our friends at Sidecar for free ride-sharing credits if you donate $25 or more! **Great for a quick corporate social responsibility program!**
10. Donate silent auction items. There is a huge silent auction in DC on June 14 and we are looking for awesome items and packages.
11. Host a fundraising event or happy hour, with proceeds going to #TeamNoCancer!
12. Let’s get creative and come up with something awesome together! (Coming soon: #TeamNoCancer jewelry!)
Thanks so much for your support and being a part #TeamNoCancer!
Review: #MoistureRenew from Rimmel London (Courtesy of Influenster)

So, I don’t really wear lipstick - it’s never been my thing. I always feel like it’s not lasting, or I can’t find the right color, so I tend to stick with lip gloss or chapstick. 

When I got selected for Influenster’s Rimmel London VoxBox, I was skeptical. I received it this afternoon. The first thing I fell in love with was the actual case. Then I opened it up and the shade was perfect. I immediately put it on and went back to work. I was surprised at how it didn’t really feel like I was wearing lipstick (I forgot about it) and its staying power. To be honest, I forgot I was even wearing it until I happened to walk by the mirror and notice it.

Rimmel London has a new fan for their #MoistureRenew Lipstick. The shade I received is called 360 As You Want Victoria. I cannot wait to try out the other colors.

Thanks, Influenster, for sending me a complimentary product to test it!

What I wish…

I know what I want my superpower to be: The ability to make people see themselves the way I see them, so that I can erase their self-doubt and make them realize how incredible they are.

Of course, on the flip side, I wouldn’t mind doing the same for low-life assholes either - make them see what a piece of shit they really can be sometimes.
