We need YOUR help to deliver Barb’s Bag chemo comfort bags to underserved breast cancer patients

14 Aug

shopping-bag-294545_640_generic

Barb’s Bag™ of Care & Comfort is an actual bag filled with essential items for chemotherapy patients to not only survive but thrive during their chemotherapy treatments.

Think of it as a chemo survival kit!

Our founder, Barbra Watson-Riley, received a “chemo bag” early in her “life in the cancer lane” from her dear friend, and former Pinkwellchick Foundation, Inc., board member Lori Hall-Armstrong. Barbra blogged regularly about how much she treasured that bag. It contained everything from an essential document organizer, to air sickness bags, aromatherapy, ginger candies, lotion, blanket, socks and much more.

Barb’s Bag™ of Care & Comfort is made of high-end material and includes a range of products that Barbra identified as essential when going through chemotherapy.  The bag also includes “Real Talk” information about what to expect during chemo and an exclusive access code to stream Life in the Cancer Lane (Barbra’s play, with Hollywood star of stage and screen Valarie Pettiford) from any device in the United States.

Sponsor. Donate. Volunteer.

There are three ways to get involved. Become a Sponsor, Patron or Donor to help PWCF to underwrite the cost of bag production and delivery or Volunteer to help assemble bags on the Day of Service.

Every dollar donated goes to produce and distribute Barb’s Bag™ for Bag It™ for the Cause Day of Service. Any undistributed bags will be distributed free of charge thereafter to female chemotherapy patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Note, in the future PWCF also plans to produce additional bags to offer via its  Bag It™ for the Holidays and the “Bag It,™ Give It” promotions.

Sponsor

We seek sponsors to help subsidize (or fully sponsor) the production and distribution of the bags. One hundred percent of sponsorship dollars is tax-deductible. Consult your tax professional for additional information. Each bag costs $50 to produce.

Unless the Sponsor requests “anonymous” status, all Sponsors will be listed on the Bag It™ for the Cause webpage and in promotional copy as follows:

Patron ($50) and Silver Sponsors ($100) will be listed on the Bag It™ for the Cause webpage and promotional copy. (No patron or sponsor limit)

Gold Sponsors ($250) will be listed on the Bag It™ for the Cause webpage and promotional copy and are invited to insert one promotional flyer into all bags sponsored by said sponsor. (No sponsor limit)

Platinum Sponsors ($500) will be listed on the Bag it for the Cause™ webpage and promotional copy and are invited to insert one promotional item into all bags sponsored by said sponsor; provided the item must fit proportionally in the existing bag and PWCF reserves the right to refuse any item that does not so fit. (20 sponsor limit)

Diamond Sponsors ($1,000) will be listed on the Bag it for the Cause™ webpage and promotional copy and are invited to insert one promotional item into all bags sponsored by said sponsor; provided the item must fit proportionally in the existing bag and PWCF reserves the right to refuse any item that does not so fit. In addition, Diamond Sponsor logo and/or website will be included on the webpage and hyperlinked to the Diamond Sponsor’s website. (10 sponsor limit)
