If I told you, you can make a difference in the next five minutes and it won’t cost you more than the five minutes, would you believe me?
Yes? Great! read on ….
No? Ok, read on and lets see if I can change your mind 🙂
Its a sad fact cancer affects 1 in 3 people, so most of us will have been affected in some way by this terrible disease, whether directly or indirectly. I was 9yrs old when my maternal grandmother developed cancer she passed away through a related illness at just 56yrs young.
Fortunately 30 some years on there continue to be individuals, groups and charities who want to do something to help fight this disease. One of those charities is Cancer Research UK a United Kingdom charity whos work is entirely funded by the public to enable : providing information about cancer, run campaigns aimed at raising awareness of the disease , influencing public policy and conduct research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
One of CRUK’s avid fundraisers is runner Stephen Auker with a personal goal to raise £50,000 for Cancer Research UK .
On July 17th 2011 at 9.15pm GMT UK Artist Swarez will be launching a 7 day Charity Art Auction and auctioning his very large beautiful rayonistic acrylic painting called “Nothing Can Keep Me From You” where the proceeds of the auction sale will go to Stephens JustGiving pot – Cancer Research UK being the sole receiver of all the money raised.
We all need to help each other.
OK, so not everybody is going to bid for a number of reasons 🙂 but that doesn’t mean you can’t do something, which is why Swarez and Nimblerunner Need You.
I strongly believe in the power of people and when we work together much can be accomplished, so remember at the beginning I said you can make a difference even if you dont bid? Here’s how:
