MammAlive Foundation Sponsorship Letter
We are currently accepting sponsors for our Breast Health Challenge Campaign, which runs from Oct 1-31, 2017.
The MammAlive Foundation is a non-profit international organization run by volunteers who are passionate about breast health education. Our mission is to educate and empower women globally to make healthy dietary and lifestyle changes, enhance understanding of their bodies, and increase awareness of the impact of the environment on their health, to reduce the risk of breast cancer now and in future generations.
The Breast Health Challenge Campaign is both an educational initiative and our Annual Fundraiser. During the campaign we will be releasing one breast health tip a day on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) in multiple languages and will ask women to share it, practice it and make videos to spread awareness about breast health.
We are looking for sponsors for each of the 31 tips as well as prizes for women who create the best videos.
You may choose to support us in 1 or 2 ways:
1. Sponsor one of our 31 tips for $250 CDN, or sponsor 5 for $1000. We will send out the tip in October with “sponsored by … ” and add your logo. Your tip and company brand will reach thousands of women through social media, and you will gain recognition as a supporter of breast health. You will be added as a sponsor to our website until Aug 1, 2018 and will be featured at least once in our monthly Healthy Breast Ezine, with a link to your company. The ezine currently has over 3000 subscriptions. You may choose the tip(s) you wish to sponsor. Please review the 31 tips below and select those that best suit your company.

3. Donate funds to the MammAlive Foundation to support our work. Currently we are seeking funds to translate breast health educational materials into Spanish, Portuguese, Urdu, Finnish, Dutch, Polish, Mandarin and Hebrew so that our programs can be taught in many countries. We require funding for Healthy Breast Educators to teach in regions where under-serviced women would otherwise be unable to attend a program.
