Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 2, 2009
In support of The American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC), Janice Pratt, President of JP and Company Marketing Communications, today announced that she would donate ten percent of the company's profit to the fundraiser if ten businesses use her company's services in the next ten weeks.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society's premier event to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. These non-competitive 5K walks are held annually throughout the month of October in more than 130 cities and towns across the country.
Last year's Hillsborough County, FL walk raised over $350,000 and attracted more than 5,000 participants. Pratt has been volunteering with MSABC for two years as the Entertainment Chairperson of the downtown Tampa-based event, scheduling and coordinating appearances by dozens of local entertainers who volunteer their time and services. This year, she will serve as Logistics Chairperson.
As a small business owner, Pratt is now is a position to donate more than just her time. She hopes to increase breast cancer awareness by promising ten percent of her own corporate profits to MSABC of Hillsborough County if ten new companies use her services in the next ten weeks, or by May 15, 2009.
"In today's economy, donations to even the most popular charities are down. But the need is greater than ever. " Pratt said.
"Besides getting great value by using my unique concierge-approach to marketing communications services, my clients can feel even better about doing business with JP and Company because part of our earnings will go directly to help fight breast cancer," she said. "Everyone benefits."
"I believe strongly in this particular cause since breast cancer has touched my life deeply. My best friend and my sister-in-law are both breast cancer survivors." She added.
