New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2015
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) – the nation’s largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and serving the lymphoma community through a comprehensive series of education programs, outreach initiatives and patient services – today announced that Light Bulbs, Etc., Inc. will join the 2015 Light it Red for Lymphoma campaign as this year’s National Lighting Sponsor. The family-owned business has committed to selling indoor/outdoor and commercial red light bulbs at special pricing, donating a portion of the proceeds to the Lymphoma Research Foundation to support its groundbreaking research programs.
“For the Light Bulbs, Etc. family, this is more than a chance to raise money for a great cause,” said Colleen Black, President/CEO for Light Bulbs, Etc., Inc. and LightBulbsDirect.com. “Today is an opportunity for our leadership and the entire LightBulbs team to stand in solidarity with the larger lymphoma community to raise awareness and inspire hope in those touched by the disease.”
Since its inception in 2011, Light it Red for Lymphoma has represented the nation’s premier and most high-profile lymphoma awareness campaign, partnering with national and international landmarks, communities, and individuals to light red to raise awareness for the disease. With today’s announcement of Light Bulbs, Etc. as this year’s National Lighting Sponsor, LRF is poised once again lead the efforts of the entire lymphoma community during National Blood Cancer Awareness Month.
In its fifth year, Light it Red for Lymphoma seeks to commemorate National Blood Cancer Awareness Month and World Lymphoma Awareness Day (September 15), by not only encouraging buildings, landmarks and businesses to shed a light on lymphoma to raise awareness, but also to give hope to the lymphoma community by urging individuals to light their own homes red as well, and in doing so, raising critical research funds for LRF through LightBulbsDirect.com.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with LightBulbsDirect.com so that this year, homes across America can join us in lighting it red,” said Meghan Gutierrez, LRF Chief Executive Officer. “The Lymphoma Research Foundation is privileged to work with such an incredibly motivated corporate partner to give consumers the opportunity to support our mission.”
