Round Up with Candlelighters of Nevada
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM). CCAM is dedicated to raising awareness on childhood cancer as well as encouraging fundraising for various pediatric cancer foundations that help research the causes, prevention methods, diagnosis, treatment options, and potential cures.
Childhood cancer facts:
- Every day, 43 kids are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S.
- Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 19 in the U.S.
- 1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old
The+Source is partnering with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, whose mission is to provide emotional support, quality of life programs, and financial assistance for children and their families affected by childhood cancer. Candlelighters was founded in 1978 by two families that were affected by childhood cancer. They set out on a mission to provide a network of support to help families affected by pediatric cancer navigate the complexities and challenges they face. Throughout the years, Candlelighters have helped nearly 2,000 families in Southern Nevada and continue to provide support for families in need.
For the entire month of September, round your purchase to the nearest dollar and we’ll donate the difference to our partners at Candlelighters. When you are paying, we can round up your total to the nearest dollar amount and will donate those proceeds directly to Candlelighters. You can also donate directly in-store via our donation jars.
