Ontario CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
My FundPartner.com today announced a Personal Quest fundraiser supporting Angel Hair for Kids has exceeded its goal. The fundraiser event, held last month, will benefit children across Canada who have suffered hair loss while battling diseases such as cancer.
Cuts for Canadian Kids, led by Jennifer Yarnell, held a hair-cutting event on September 29 to donate hair to Angel Hair for Kids to help provide free wigs to Canadian kids who have suffered from a disease that resulted in hair loss, such as cancer. In addition to the hair donations, the group also raised more than $1,000 for Angel hair for Kids by using a Personal Quest at http://www.MyFundPartner.com.
MyFundPartner’s Personal Quest software allows organizations to manage events and online fundraisers—from recruiting and organizing volunteers and team members to raising money or selling tickets—all from a personalized web portal.
"We have all been affected by cancer somehow, either directly or indirectly. Every couple of years I donate my hair to various organizations who provide wigs for cancer patients who have lost their hair," said Yarnell, event organizer. "This time, I wanted Canadian kids with cancer or other illness that results in hair loss to benefit from free wigs. Donating hair was an easy way to help and the additional funds we were able to raise we hope will help make the lives of cancer patients a little bit better."
Yarnell’s 8-year-old daughter Charlotte was even involved and said she grew out her hair for nearly 2 years before cutting it last month for the charity.
"I want to dedicate my fundraising to all the kids out there who are fighting cancer. I hope you beat it!" Charlotte said.
"A Personal Quest fundraising campaign lets you maximize fundraising online by accepting pledges from others who care about the same issues you do. It also gives you the ability to easily broadcast your cause to friends, families and social networks," said Anthony Pasto, president of MyFundPartner.
