UK retailer RoseDolls is currently holding raffle to raise funds for cancer research.
From the retailer:
RoseDolls are holding a charity raffle with awesome prizes to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Further to our 50% discount just recently announced, we will be donating the remaining 50% of sales of our in stock items directly to the charity fund.
With our greatest regret, we wish to inform everyone that we will be closing. After the raffle is complete and money donated to charity, we will be officially closed. We invite you to read on about our last endeavour!
Why this charity/ What is it all about?
In 2010, in the United Kingdom alone, 325,000 people were diagnosed with cancer. That is 890 people a day. In addition, it is estimated that 1 in 3 people will develop cancer in their lifetime. (Source: Cancer Research UK). Cancer has, and will continue to affect the lives of millions- not just those diagnosed, but also their family and friends who care for them. It is something close to the heart of RoseDolls and was chosen not only because of this, but due to its existence all over the world. This is significant, as we know this message will reach a BJD community worldwide.
This charity uses it’s donations in order to fund cancer research, thus the development of treatments for many types of cancer. This has benefited the lives of countless people affected and with further funding will undoubtedly help save more lives. To find out more, please take a look at the official charity website: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/
Every single penny raised will go straight to Cancer Research.
