#WhenSheThrives - A fundraising campaign supporting those diagnosed with breast cancer
#WhenSheThrives is a fundraising campaign to support You Can Thrive!, a holistic wellness model and supportive community for women and men diagnosed with cancer. It turns from a powerful video into a viral movement when viewers make the campaign personally significant to them by donating $18 to YCT in the name of the most important women in their life. ‘She’ can be your grandmother, mother, daughter, wife, friend, teacher, colleague, boss, mentor, or hero (celebrity outreach), etc. “#WhenSheThrives, We All Do” is a movement that is timely and universally resonant, given the richness that is added to our world when she is happy, healthy and thriving.
