Friends, I post today to announce our latest donation of $700 to the American Cancer Society. I must admit that it’s bittersweet to write about the good news of the donation right along with the sad news of who we honor. Jennie Baxla (baxlala) was a Cannonballer from the very beginning, and we made a donation in her memory today. You can still read her wonderful reviews and add her book recommendations to your own TBR list. We welcome In Memoriam donations if you would […]
Please Support Cannonball Read Today for #GivingTuesday
Thank you so much to all of our donors on Giving Tuesday this year, we exceeded our goal and raised $626.00! Though I don’t write reviews for CBR, I’m definitely still reading—this year I’ve put a double Cannonball on my Goodreads “Read” shelf! And so, on this Giving Tuesday, I’m donating 50¢ per book I’ve read in 2022 to Cannonball Read! Who’s with me? How many books have you read (and/or reviewed!) this year? If you’ve completed a half Cannonball, that’s 26, would you […]
First Donation of 2022
I’m happy to announce that we’ve made our first donation of the year to the American Cancer Society, and that brings the grand total of our donations to the American Cancer Society to $10,000! Thank you to all of the participants, donors, volunteers, and friends who have helped reach this amazing milestone. We’ve got some great stuff planned for the year, so please consider supporting us today financially if you’re able. You can do so via PayPal or Venmo.
Thanks from the American Cancer Society
We received a lovely thank you note from our contact at the American Cancer Society, thanking us for our donations last year. Thanks to two matching donations at the end of the year, Cannonball Read donated $1,080 to ACS in 2021, which brings our total donation to ACS to $9,655. Please consider making a donation to support us this year in our mission to stick it to cancer, one book at a time.
Last Donation of 2021
I’m so pleased to tell you that due to an end of year fundraising push, we were able to donate an additional $240.00 to the American Cancer Society. They had a matching grant at the time, so our donation dollars were doubled! And with Bothari43’s donation in December being doubled by her employer, Cannonball Read’s donations to ACS this year came to $1080. That brings our total donations to $9,655. We at Cannonball Read are so grateful for all of our supporters and participants, […]
Donation Good News
We heard from Bothari43 this week that her employer was offering giving dollars based on her volunteer hours with us. Because we’re a pending 501(c)(3), her volunteer work did qualify for an internal giving reward. But because we’re only pending, her donation had to go directly to the American Cancer Society. Thanks to our incredibly successful #GivingTuesday, we were able to match Bothari43’s donation with another $300 donation to the American Cancer Society this morning. With this donation, we remember AlabamaPink, and we also remember […]
