Sell teal ribbon items to raise money for this worthy cause
Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease. It is often detected late, since symptoms such as abdominal bloating and lower back pain are common to many other ailments, and like most diseases, the later the diagnosis, the more difficult it is to treat effectively. However, when detected early enough, the survival rate can be as high as 95%. In an effort to help women recognize their symptoms and pursue treatment before the disease progresses, September has been designated Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Represented by the teal ribbon, Ovarian Cancer Awareness is an important cause to women of all ages and the men in their lives that love them.
Each September, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) holds a Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer event in numerous cities and towns throughout the United States. You can participate in these events yourself, or sponsor people who are. Either way, there are many teal ribbon items that you can sell to raise money for ovarian cancer awareness. Here are some ideas for you on what to sell and how to do it so you can have a successful teal ribbon fundraiser:
Teal Ribbon Items: Teal Ribbon Headbands and Teal Ribbon Shoe Laces – Participants in the Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer would love to wear teal ribbon headbands or sport teal ribbon shoe laces during the run/walk. These teal ribbon items are great for teams as well as individuals. You can ask potential donors to purchase these teal ribbon items for participants, letting them know that profits will be donated to ovarian cancer awareness. If you are a participant in the event, you can order these items for yourself and your teammates.
Teal Ribbon Items: Teal Ribbon Scarves – Wouldn’t it be great for participants in the Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer to see their family and friends cheering them on at the finish line waving teal ribbon scarves to show their support? These scarves also make a beautiful addition to any outfit. You can sell these beautiful teal ribbon items to raise money for ovarian cancer awareness. Ladies will love the way they look and will be happy to buy and wear them as part of their regular wardrobe, and men will be proud to give them as gifts for the ladies in their lives.
Teal Ribbon Items: Large Paper Teal Ribbons – You’ve probably seen the promotions supermarkets do when they’re raising money for charities. They write a donor’s name on a piece of paper shaped like a shoe, a heart, etc. and hang it in the window to show support and inspire others to give. You can do this same type of promotion using Large Paper Teal Ribbons this September for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Let people making a donation write their name, or the name of a loved one, on the large paper teal ribbon and display it prominently at your fundraising venue or event location. People enjoy seeing them and will be more inspired to give the more they see others do so.
Teal Ribbon Items: Large Teal Ribbon Stickers – You can give out large teal ribbon stickers to everyone who makes a donation or participates in your fundraising event. These stickers are a huge hit with kids, but everyone is likely to wear or display one to show his/her support. These large teal ribbon stickers have room to write someone’s name on them, so they can be used to identify Run/Walk participants or display a loved one’s name.
