LIVESTRONG is the nonprofit organization founded by Lance Armstrong that helps anyone diagnosed with cancer get through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. It provides free, confidential support to cancer patients and family and friends of cancer patients, including helping navigate treatment decisions, dealing with insurance, staying emotionally strong, and getting well.
Chris from beadjewelry.net plans to cycle 65 miles (!) in support of LIVESTRONG and in honor of everyone who's been affected by cancer. But in order to do this, Chris needs to raise at least $250 in donations for the LIVESTRONG organization.
Here's how it works:
1. If you make a tax-deductible donation of at least $10.00 through this LIVESTRONG donation page, you'll receive a personal thank you note and a surprise free gift! Your gift may be a goody bag of interesting beads, a piece of handmade jewelry, or even a craft book from one of the talented authors of Lark Crafts or Interweave Press.
2. If your donation is between $15.00 and $24.00, you'll receive a thank you note, a surprise gift, and your choice of a free signed copy of Wire Jewelry VISUAL Quick Tips or Beading VISUAL Quick Tips, while supplies last (there are currently 3 copies of each book available)*.
3. If your donation is $25.00 or more, you'll receive a thank you note, surprise gift, and your choice of a free signed copy of Teach Yourself VISUALLY More Jewelry Making or Teach Yourself VISUALLY Beadwork, while supplies last (there are 4 copies of each available)*.
