On behalf of Cancer Kinship and the cancer community we serve, I’d like to invite you to join us as a contributor of our upcoming virtual fashion show, Brave, Bold & Boundless , in support of our "Cancer Connections" Peer Mentorship program, our Survivor Empowerment & Education Workshops, and community resource navigation services that help meet the emotional and psychosocial needs of our clients. Our programs alleviate distress and isolation, and address many mental health challenges experienced by cancer patients and survivors. We offer practical tools, tips and knowledge to help our participants cope, not only with their diagnosis, treatments, and surgeries, but also with the extreme isolation and increased fear that they have been experiencing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we, the global community, continue to adjust and cope with the impact of COVID-19, one thing continues to ring true for us at Cancer Kinship: Cancer Does Not Care About COVID-19 ! Many patients are still hearing the words, “You have cancer,” while attending doctor appointments alone and going to chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries without much-needed support due to continued social distancing requirements. The impact on long-term impact of COVID-19 for the cancer community is yet to be seen, but the inequalities of the pandemic are coming to light every single day. Questions are unanswered, fear is rising, and hope seems far away.

While the out-pour of community support has been primarily focused on greatly needed safety net programs such as local food banks and housing programs, and with the recent shift to social justice, we at Cancer Kinship have continued to move our mission forward despite recent financial challenges. We garnered support from our close network through social media fundraising campaigns and personal gifts from our Executive Advisory Council after cancelling our grassroots in-person events due to shelter at home regulations. We are grateful for the support we've received from our community, which has helped us reach important organizational milestones amid the pandemic. We are proud to share that we transitioned 100% of our programs online. We are breaking geographic barriers with virtual services as we continue to reach patients and survivors from across the nation from our home base in Southern California. We are thankful for the many silver linings we've experienced throughout the last few months.

As we continue to adapt and grow, we are shifting our outreach and fundraising efforts towards the corporate community, while being mindful of the many operational challenges that may have impacted many companies' philanthropic capabilities. We realize that the timing may not be right, but nevertheless, we are eager to learn how your company is doing and looking forward to exploring how we may both benefit from a partnership. We hope to garner support from community-minded companies who are interested in helping us advance our mission through philanthropy, volunteerism, and ambassadorship. Our hope is that this event will serve as a catalyst for our program expansion to reach even more patients in need. We are committed to making this fashion show not just a fun and unique virtual experience, but also the most successful fundraising event to date! Let's join forces to transform fear into hope! 

Should you have any questions or if you are ready to move forward as a sponsor, I encourage you to contact Yoli Origel, Executive Director at 714-592-1625 or yorigel@cancerkinship.org. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.

Our fashion show is mission-aligned and designed to build community while empowering cancer patients through a fashion experience. Our show will feature cancer patients and survivors who will be participating as models. In preparation for the show, Cancer Kinship will engage them in various empowerment activities and workshops that are designed to create human connections, build their confidence and self-esteem. Activities will include our model orientation that will facilitate introductions where the participants will have an opportunity to meet each other, share their cancer stories and connect with fellow survivors. Our models will work with volunteer hair and makeup coaches and a professional fashion show coordinator to become runway-ready in a fun and safe environment.

Unlike traditional fashion shows, the fashions will be modeled in a COVID-safe environment: from the comfort of our models' homes, and all outfits will be selected from their own wardrobes. The highlight of the show will not be the fashions, but rather a celebration of life; highlighting our models' resiliency and grit. Videos will be captured throughout the entire experience and will be stitched together in a high-energy virtual fashion show event format that viewers can enjoy from the comfort of their respective homes. Together we will build community while celebrating survivorship.

The event will feature an event emcee who will welcome all viewers and help with the flow of the show with their funny and witty commentary. They will also share about Cancer Kinship's mission and programs and introduce our presenting sponsor who will have an opportunity to share a personalized welcome message on behalf of his/her company. Then, the viewers will get a behind-the-scenes sneak peak that will generate excitement for the main fashion event, set to heart pounding, energizing and inspirational music. Many scene transitions will provide an opportunity for us to highlight our sponsors. The event will also include the announcement of our opportunity drawing winners and a "fund the mission" donation request. Our sponsors will be recognized various times throughout the event, as outlined in the enclosed benefits page. The show's finale will feature inspirational messages from our cancer survivor models and cancer community to our viewers - encouraging us that we, too, can be strong and resilient during these tough times.
