Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2016
Today, the Charity Network announced a new partnership with Susan G. Komen® in conjunction with October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Charity Network and Susan G. Komen will work in tandem to create, distribute and promote More Than Pink™ content, offer supporters celebrity experience sweepstakes, and auction items from the world’s most recognizable names and brands, while raising money to help in the fight against breast cancer.
As part of the partnership, the Charity Network will utilize its leading digital fundraising platforms Charitybuzz, Prizeo, and Chideo to harness the power of celebrity, technology, and media to raise awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen. Through strategic digital media partnerships, the Charity Network will amplify content by distributing and promoting experiences through Chideo and syndicate through their roster of syndication partners. The Charity Network will launch a wide range of More Than Pink™ fundraising experiences through its platforms as part of the movement’s mission to inspire supporters to act, donate and get involved in the fight against breast cancer. The experiences offered will include unique opportunities ranging from attending WrestleMania 33 alongside WWE superstars, to having lunch with record-breaking IndyCar driver, Pippa Mann and touring the Dallara factory in Indianapolis, to meeting reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, Jason Aldean, at a concert of the winner’s choice. Through these experiences, the Charity Network will help Komen reach an audience of over 3 million unique, highly qualified supporters ranging from high net worth individuals to active millennial fan bases.
“We are excited to welcome Komen to our amazing digital platforms,” said the Charity Network founder and chairman Todd Wagner. “In 2016 alone, there will be 40,000 women and men who will lose their lives to breast cancer in the U.S. This disease impacts all of us. We are grateful to offer Komen strategic guidance and advice from our team of digital fundraising experts.”
“More Than Pink encourages everyone to step up and take action – we are so grateful to the Charity Network for doing just that by way of this incredible partnership,” says Senior Vice President of Development Christina Alford. “We are proud to be expanding our efforts to reach a new audience of supporters that are just as passionate as we are in this collective fight against breast cancer.”
The More Than Pink™ movement is part of Komen’s recently announced Bold Goal, which aims to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50 percent over the course of the next decade.
The More Than Pink movement continues the history of success between Komen and WWE in raising awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The partnership launched in 2012 with the successful “Rise Above Cancer” campaign, and to-date, has raised nearly $2 million to help Komen support research and community outreach programs and has inspired millions to take action against breast cancer.
