GOING GOLD WITH SUNFLOWERS
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month which is an important opportunity for our community to advocate for not only the 46 children diagnosed with cancer every day but for what we do and for what we stand for here at the Carsyn Neille Foundation as well. Help us advocate and show our support for children battling childhood cancer this month by hosting a bouquet of sunflowers, for the whole month of September, at your place of business. This years going gold with sunflowers is an awesome way to raise awareness and give back. It’s easy, fun and a great way to get people talking!
All you need to do to get started is outlined below. If you have any questions email us at email@example.com
