We feel it is important to spread awareness so that those who are affected by Lupus have more support and resources
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
Three Seven Marketing Group, Inc., a sales and marketing company based in Troy, Michigan, announced that the company raised and donated money to the Lupus Alliance of America, an organization that raises awareness about the lupus disease.
The Three Seven Marketing Group team and President, Tara Masia, took initiative and volunteered to raise awareness about the disease in hopes of drawing more attention to the disease during Lupus Awareness Month in May.
“We feel it is important to spread awareness so that those who are affected by Lupus have more support and resources,” said President Tara Masia.
Many members of the team at Three Seven Marketing Group personally know someone with Lupus, so spreading awareness and raising money for this cause was especially important to them. The team:
- Volunteered 6 hours of their time on a Saturday
- Went door-to-door and spoke to community members about the disease.
- Passed out informative bookmarks provided by the Lupus Alliance of America and info sheets put together by their own team
- Solicited donations from the community and rallied together to make a company donation of their own.
The money raised by Three Seven Marketing Group will help to fund a lupus commercial aimed at raising awareness about the disease and how it affects people afflicted with it.
“At the end of the day, we felt excited and proud of our efforts,” Tara Masia said. “When walking door- to-door, each person on my team encountered either someone affected by Lupus or someone who had a friend or family member affected by the disease. A great amount of appreciation and gratitude was expressed to my team and me and that was the most rewarding part!”
