Organizer Kit

Like other forms of cancer, childhood cancer has an international symbol, the gold ribbon.

This is an easily-recognizable symbol to unite under, if people know what it means. Sadly, when asked, most people would not be able to identify the gold ribbon as the symbol for childhood cancer awareness (see the video above).

"Going Gold" means increasing public knowledge about the Gold Ribbon and what it symbolizes. We can help families and children feel that more awareness and support exist for the battle they are waging with this disease.

People who Go Gold are passionate about increasing the recognition of this important symbol. Often, they have been touched by childhood cancer in some way, and they have experienced the lack of awareness and attention first-hand. 

Hosting an event is easy. Just follow these steps:

Choose a date.
You can Go Gold for a day, a week, or longer!

Recruit friends and family.
The more, the merrier!

Set a fundraising goal.
What are you shooting for? Every little bit helps. For example, an event that brings in $15 will put one of our books in the hands of a child with cancer, and $100 will give a full set of our materials to a family in need of them.

Click on "Become a Fundraiser" above. Let us know what you're planning! We'll send you free gold ribbon stickers or gold ribbon temporary tattoos for your participants to wear. You will also receive one-on-one coaching, if needed.

Tell Everyone!
This is an awareness event after all!  Spread the word at work, at school, through email, on Facebook, with smoke signals, carrier pidgeons, or any other methods you can think of. More supporters of your event inevitably means more supporters of our nation's childhood cancer patients, survivors, and their families.
