Fay A. Posted December 16, 2003 Share Posted December 16, 2003 Well....after handing out all those pins (HUNDREDS), posters, pamphlets, speaking with anyone too polite to run away, I decided to try to track down what impact those efforts had on raising a few dollars for ALCASE. So I made some calls.... and not ONE donation came in from any of the areas where I provided materials for ALCASE and Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Not only did not one single individual send in one single dollar in response to the card the ribbon pin is attached to, but not one single hospital, cancer center, medical clinic, nor oncology office bother to fill out the contact form and submit it to ALCASE so that they would be able to receive the information, etc. that is provided by ALCASE to these places. I'm having a bad platelet week. But when I feel a little better I am going to make MORE follow up calls to as many of these folks as I can and ask them WHEN they will fill out the contact sheets, and let them know that if each one of those who took a ribbon pin sent in a single dollar that would be about $300 for ALCASE.... Very Frustrating. Fay A. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
