Good Morning Relayers!
During this season of thanksgiving, we wanted to let you know how thankful we are for you! Thank you for all you do in the lives of so many locally and nationwide. Thank you for being the support and strength of the community and thank you for the passion you have for finding a cure.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday with your friends, family and loved ones – remember those who cannot be with theirs this year. Thank you for all you do each and every day to help us create a world with more Thanksgivings and more birthdays to celebrate!
Dedicated hearts like yours
Are not so easy to find.
It takes a special person to be
So generous and kind.
To care so much for your fellow man
Is a quality all too rare.
Yet you give of your time and talents,
For all in need to share.
So thank you for being a volunteer,
We're privileged to work with you.
We want you to know how appreciated you are,
Not just today, but the whole year through.

2. Giving Tuesday is coming up. Are you ready?
On Tuesday, December 1, 2015 people from around the world will come together on #GivingTuesday for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. This year the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life are participating in Giving Tuesday like never before
Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back.
It’s a simple idea, fueled by the power of generosity, social media and collaboration.
This year, the American Cancer Society is actively participating to help make #GivingTuesday a new tradition.
You can help us by spreading the word and donating to the American Cancer Society on December 1st.
3. Amazon Smile - Gift Giving
If you shop on Amazon, this is an absolutely free way to give to the Society. Amazon -- not you -- gives the Society .5% of your purchase total, every time you shop on Amazon.
To make that happen, you must register – for free – on AmazonSmile, and choose the Society as the charity of your choice.Here is a direct link to the Society's AmazonSmile page.
You can use your existing Amazon account and you will find all the same products and prices as on Amazon.com. (Recurring subscribe-and-save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible for AmazonSmile, however.)
Once registered, every time you come back to smile.amazon.com, you will see this wording at the top of the page: "Supporting American Cancer Society, Inc."
The key is remembering to go to smile.amazon.com or the Society's page, instead of amazon.com. It takes a little self-discipline, but it's worth it. It costs you nothing but provides the Society with much needed funds.
As we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, we should not forget that for cancer patients, their caregivers and families, the holidays can present new needs and unfamiliar challenges. In this season and always, the American Cancer Society is committed to cancer patients and their caregivers who need assistance and support in order to both survive and thrive. How thankful we are that we get to spread the word about the American Cancer Society's availability to help 24/7—every day of the year.
