SIGN UP TO ADOPT THIS PROJECT

Volunteers Needed: 50

This project is best for: An individual teen or adult, or groups of teens or adults

Estimated Time Commitment in April 2021: 5-15 minutes

Skills Needed: No specific skills required, just a positive attitude and a willingness to brighten someone’s day!

What You’ll Do: Volunteers will record a short video, no longer than 1 minute, that provides words of encouragement and support to lung cancer survivors in celebration of National Cancer Survivor’s Day. Clips from this video will be shared in an inspirational video that we will share with lung cancer survivors at our virtual survivor’s day celebration in June.

How This Project Helps: Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer, claiming more lives each year than breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers combined. With such a high mortality rate, it can be extremely daunting to battle lung cancer. Through your help, we will share a story of hope and inspire others to join the cause to support even more survivors!

SIGN UP TO ADOPT THIS PROJECT

Volunteers Needed: 1

This project is best for: An individual adult

Estimated Time Commitment in April 2021: 6-8 hours

Skills Needed: Video editing

What You’ll Do: Volunteers are given access to pictures and graphics to create an educational and inspiring five-minute video about our mission to create a more responsible fashion and textiles industry. We will also have an in-person display up at the Museum of History during April – it would be great to incorporate that as a ‘things we do’. I’d like to add this to our website as part of our About Us page.

How This Project Helps: The textiles industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world. It is also notorious for human rights abuses. We work to educate and activate people to be advocates for positive change in the textiles industry. This display that we have at the Museum in April is a great opportunity for us to reach additional supporters both in person and virtually.
