Dear supporter,

On October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds starting at 12:01 am EDT until 11:59pm EDT or until matching funds run out.  

In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors!

What is means is that even smallest donation will help us take advantage of this generous offer and stretch your donation to help more cancer patients.  Here is why it is important to help:  currently, our partner, Advita fund in St. Petersburg, has 29 patients who need help with raising funds for bone marrow donor searches.  This is one of the largest charities in Russia.  But even for them, it is difficult to foot the bill for all the needy patients.  In fact, last year they were able to pay full cost of only 10 bone marrow donor searches.  The rest of the money needs to come from community to help the patients fighting leukemia and other serious blood disorders have a chance to live.   For certain types of diseases, bone marrow transplants are the only curative option. 

Please join us this Wednesday and help us give hope to the cancer patients!
