www.projectSHINE.us is a collaboration of Bay Area designers and artists creating work and events celebrating life and fighting to end blood cancers.
Brad Carrick founded project SHINE to be a first-ever collaboration of Bay Area designers and artists creating unique work inspired by LIFE, the chance for everyone to shine, and the fight to cure blood cancers. As part of the LLS’s annual Man and Woman of the year fundraising campaign, our contributing artists will come together as a community to make a difference. We hope you can join us at one of our events and pledge to make it memorable. We also have set an ambitious goal to raise $50 thousand in 10 weeks. With this, we can fully fund the discovery of a new drug to battle these horrific diseases. But for this to happen, we must ask for YOUR help.
Over the last 63 years, LLS has invested close to $1 billion in research to find the cause and cure for various forms of blood cancer. We have selected to work with LLS because blood cancer research can be the gateway to curing other cancers - and because they boast an industry-leading percentage of donations that go DIRECTLY to the cause, not to overhead. In addition to funding research, LLS provides patient and family-services to help those affected by these devastating illnesses.
To further describe the human impact, consider the following: approximately every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer and every 10 minutes, someone dies. We can change this. I’m one of those people who believe we all want to do something good. We are also all busy with work, trying to cope with our daily lives and keep our heads above water. Please take a moment to do what you can now. Please donate. Please take a look at our upcoming events and come join us. Please do something good and help give people afflicted by this terrible disease the chance to SHINE.
On behalf of project SHINE, thank you. You are beautiful.
