-- Local breast cancer organization Ellie Fund has been selected as the charity to exclusively compete for Boston in “Twive & Receive” on June 14, a national one-day Twitter-based fundraising contest. Dedicated local volunteers, companies, and “Twitterati”
are joining forces to help the non-profit organization win its share of $30,000 in prize money from Razoo.com, the host of the contest. The Ellie Fund will use 100% of the funds raised to provide critical support services free of charge for local families who are struggling with breast cancer treatment. (Elliefund.org/
Everyone is invited to assist the Ellie Fund by visiting http://www.razoo.com/
Everyone can participate in the June 14 Twive & Receive contest to benefit the Ellie Fund. Ideas include hosting a virtual “twitterati”
party or “giving gathering” at home or work, asking employers to match donations made on June 14, and spreading the message far and wide to support this fun and innovative fundraising “event” that will benefit so many local families who are struggling with breast cancer.
About the Ellie Fund
The Ellie Fund was founded in 1995 by brothers Jeff and Eliot Popkin to honor their mother’s courageous battle against breast cancer and the generous giving she was known for throughout her life. The Ellie Fund provides transportation to medical appointments, childcare, housekeeping, groceries and meals completely free of charge to more than 500 breast cancer patients and family members across Massachusetts each year.
