The Challenge Is On
The National Blood Clot Alliance is excited to announce that we’ve been selected to be part of the Revlon LOVE IS ON™ Million Dollar Challenge 2016. This challenge involves a fundraising competition whereby organizations that support women’s health causes compete for cash prize donations from Revlon. The top five charities that raise the most money will win cash prizes of $25,000 – $1,000,000. Placing in the top five would be a monumental opportunity for our growing organization. The six-week Challenge launches on September 14, at 12pm ET, and runs through October 26. We’re ready to raise as much money as we can so we can win the $1 million grand prize! Throughout the Challenge, NBCA also will be offering our own fun contests and incentives for our team. This is an exciting and easy opportunity to get involved with NBCA.
