New York, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2016
Flix Premiere, the world's first online cinema, kicked off the #FlixPremiereChallenge, a social media campaign to use the power of movies to help raise global awareness for the fight against cancer. The campaign's goal is to raise more than $200,000 for cancer research by the end of December.
Movie fans can participate in the #FlixPremiereChallenge in three ways:
- Create a video in which they enact a scene from their favorite movie and post the video on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #FlixPremiereChallenge, and then challenge three friends to do the same within 24 hours
- Watch a new Flix Premiere movie that they haven't seen before, and five percent of the value of their ticket will be donated towards cancer research
- Donate to the cause directly on the Flix Premiere website
At the end of the campaign, Flix Premiere will donate all proceeds to its partners, Cancer Research U.K. and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the U.S. to support their research. In addition, the participant whose video gets the most votes will be awarded $5,000.
"Cancer is the leading cause of death in the United States, and impacts millions of families around the world," says Martin Warner, founder and CEO of Flix Premiere. "It's a tragic story whose ending we need to change, and we can only do this together. Our campaign rallies movie fans across the world to use film as a medium to create awareness for the need for cancer research."
The #FlixPremiereChallenge started in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and will run until the end of December.
