If you’ve been following MRA on social media, you know we are trying something new in the fundraising space. We’ve teamed up with Prizeo, an online fundraising startup, to create a contest for fans of MRA and/or American Idol that pairs rewards with altruism. By appealing to American Idol enthusiasts, we hope to grow our community of supporters and to increase melanoma awareness, especially among young people
Each $3 donation to MRA through the contest earns you one entry in a sweepstakes for the grand prize: A free trip to Nashville later this month to see the summer’s final American Idol® Live! Tour show and meet Season 12 winner Candice Glover. Want to give more? Great! Each additional $3 donation will get you another entry, plus there are extra prizes at set giving levels. Larger donations to MRA will get you an e thank-you from Candice herself, a free BullFrog sunscreen and a custom-designed James Perse t-shirt.
Remember, MRA uses 100% of its publicly-raised funds to help speed the pace of melanoma research. We are excited that this new contest-driven model allows MRA’s donors to win prizes while helping this important cause.
There are only two weeks left in the contest, so enter now and share it with your friends and family!
