Simply put, the Grand Plan is about making a difference in someone else's life.
Since 2005, The SAMFund has awarded $600,000 in grants and scholarships to young adult survivors across the country. In June, we'll open the application process for the seventh year in a row -- and we are anticipating more applications than ever before.
From May 2nd to May 31st, people from all over the country will be raising money for The SAMFund. Every penny raised will go directly to young adult survivors who are trying to move forward with their lives after treatment. And here's the best part: YOU get to choose what it gets used for!
Here's the deal: our four most commonly funded categories are rent, health insurance, gym/yoga memberships and prescription co-pays. $1,000 could have a huge impact on any of these:
- It could provide an extra month or two of rent to someone facing eviction;
- It could ensure that a survivor can mantain critical health insurance coverage for three additional months;
- It could give two young adults the opportunity to go to the gym/yoga for an entire year, so that they can keep up their physical strength and well-being; or
- It could provide six months' worth of prescriptions for two grant recipients.
No matter how you look at it, $1,000 could mean a world of difference to a young adult who is struggling.
So, become part of our Grand Plan to help even more young adult survivors this fall. Go to http://www.thesamfund.stayclassy.org, set up your page, and engage your friends, family and colleagues in this important effort. If everyone reading this blog post raises just $1,000, imagine the possibilities...
