Paige's Students of the Year Fundraiser

Jan 05, 2022

 

Dear Family and Friends,
    My name is Paige Iacobacci and I have been nominated for the 2022 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Students of the Year campaign. LLS’s mission is to cure blood cancers while improving the quality of life for patients and their families. Each year this organization launches its Students of the Year (SoY) fundraising campaign, and I am running a campaign alongside my best friend, Gaby Martin, on team purple. As you may know, SoY is a philanthropic leadership development program for high school students. The title Student(s) of the year, as well as a scholarship, is awarded to the student or students that raise the most funds over the course of seven weeks. Alongside many others, I have a personal connection with cancer and realize how horrible this disease is. Therefore, I am determined to put forth my efforts to raise money and awareness for this cause.
    Currently, I am a tenth grader at The Perkiomen School. I have leadership roles in many clubs and activities that I am involved in inside and outside of school. However, I am most interested in the arts and participating in activities like music, theatre, and visual art. Doing all of these things help me to be creative, and I can see myself pursuing one of these things in the future. By participating in these activities, not only am I improving myself, but I also witness the people around me improve themselves as well. I know that the arts are very important to many people, and that is one of the reasons why cancer research is so important. When people are diagnosed with cancer their whole lives change, and they are not always able to participate in the activities that make them the happiest. I truly believe that being able to do the things that you love is one of the most important factors for your overall well-being. Cancer affects millions of people across the world, but the LLS fundraiser helps cancer research enormously. Since 2000, more than 40% of all new cancer therapies approved by the FDA were first approved for blood cancer, which not only helped save millions of lives but also provided people with the opportunity to get back to doing the things that make them happy.
    This fundraising campaign lasts from January 7th, 2022 to February 26th, 2022. Our team has been working hard to prepare for this campaign so we are able to raise as much as we can. All proceeds will go directly to LLS in support of its mission to find cures for blood cancer and to provide patients with access to treatments they may need. I am writing to you to ask for your support in Team Purple  by donating to LLS through my fundraising website. All donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter and supporting this incredible cause.
Sincerely,
Paige Iacobacci
