Five Ways You Can Help Leukemia Charities And Other Cancer Related Organizations Fight Cancer by anamaulida


									When it comes to helping others affected by leukemia, you can do many
things that don't involve donating money from your own pocket. Let's face
it, some of us just don't have much money to donate. But don't let that
deter you from helping when you desire to do so.      Here are a few
ideas you can use to help leukemia charities and touch those who are
affected by the disease.

  1. Donate To Leukemia Charities For Research - The Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are two places
that you can donate money that you raise with fund raisers. It will take
time and organizational skills on your part to have a successful fund
raiser but the results are worth the effort. A few fund raiser ideas are:
bake sale spaghetti dinner sandwich sale yard / garage sale raffles
beaded bracelets (children will enjoy taking part) craft sale        2.
Donate Blood and/or platelets - Cancer patients undergo blood and
platelet transfusions due to the effects of chemotherapy. Donating your
blood and/or platelets is a priceless gift you can give that only
requires a little time.       3. Donate Hair - If your hair is long enough
you can get it cut and donate it to organizations that make wigs for
cancer patients that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. Hair loss
can have           an emotional effect on cancer patients and having a
wig made of real hair can help make them    feel better about their
appearance.           4. Relay For Life - This is an event organized by
the American Cancer Society. You can form a team and help raise money
through fund raising. Participating in the event will also show     your
support for those affected by cancer. Fund raising and forming a team
will again take time    and organizational skills.      5. Send Cards -
Another way to touch the lives of people affected by cancer is by sending
cards to lift their spirits. There are organizations that provide the
contact information to do so.       These are just a few ideas of ways you
can help those affected by cancer. For more ways you can help please
