What if a 30 second action could raise thousands of dollars, and then those dollars helped provide millions of people touched by cancer as well as their families with high-quality social and emotional support? It sounds too good to be true, right? It’s not. In fact, you can do that right now and until next Tuesday!

So what are we asking, exactly? Help us finish strong in the last week of Ready. Raise. Rise., a national competition sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb to raise awareness of cancer advocacy organizations. To participate, you just have to create virtual flags in honor of anyone you know who is touched by cancer. Participation is free, but the payoff is big—a $75,000 donation to the winning organization! Join the Cancer Support Community family in creating as many flags as we can as many times as we can to reach our goal.

Here’s how to help:

1) Visit

2) Enter your name and email into the form

3) Choose a background color and a slogan for your flag from the drop-down menu

4) Enter the first name of your honoree and their connection to you (ie: parent, sibling, friend, self, coworker, mentor, etc.)

5) Choose Cancer Support Community from the list of advocacy organizations

6) Submit!

Each of those steps take less than 30 seconds all together, so it’s quick and easy to create many flags in just one sitting. And, when you’re done, your FREE donation will have helped CSC provide our crucial services and resources to more people who are touched by cancer.

Who will you raise your flags for? Share with us in the comments on our Facebook page, then share this link with your family and friends. #RaiseYourFlag
