North Texas Giving Day, the largest giving day in the nation, is back on September 14, 2017! In eight years, North Texas Giving Day has generated $156 million for the community. Learn more about some of the thousands of participating nonprofits here on BubbleLife from now until Giving Day. Read more about today's featured nonprofit, Klyde Warren Park below. 

Along the sprawling 5.2-acre Klyde Warren Park, a young girl climbs up the hills and traipses through the water features with a new friend as they pretend to hike Mount Everest and forage through the Amazon. The girls’ imaginations grow as they climb through the spider web jungle gym and watch over their city, pretending to be super heroes. Stories like these happen every day in a place like Klyde Warren Park, a vibrant central location that knits the urban fabric and families together through energetic and illustrious activities.

While the park ensures that 1,300 activities come at no cost to the public every year, this isn’t without the operating foundation working closely with dozens of community partners and sponsors to offer beloved opportunities. The privately funded Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation manages and operates Klyde Warren Park, the centrally located green space where the community can congregate and create memories. Klyde Warren Park enriches the lives of park patrons, bridges the surrounding neighborhoods and the region's multitude of cultures and remains active through free programming and educational opportunities each year.

This year during North Texas Giving Day, when you donate to Klyde Warren Park long-time supporter, and food truck enthusiast Jon Wagner will match every donation up to $20,000. Despite its financial needs, Klyde Warren Park is dedicated to creating an enjoyable atmosphere where everyone feels and is seen as an equal. As the park excitedly approaches its fifth year in Dallas, the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation is even more dedicated to increasing the quality and frequency of programming to provide ample education and unparalleled experiences for every individual in the community. With your help on North Texas Giving Day, we can double the impact of our $20,000 matching gift and increase the fun as we explore new ways to enjoy the exclusive opportunities that Dallas has to offer.

North Texas Giving Day, the largest giving day in the nation, is back on September 14, 2017! In eight years, North Texas Giving Day has generated $156 million for the community. Learn more about some of the thousands of participating nonprofits here on BubbleLife from now until Giving Day. Read more about today's featured nonprofit, Connecting City to Farm, below. 

We are a young non-profit organization and thrilled for the opportunity to participate in North Texas Giving Day for the first time!  When we received our 501c3 declaration letter in 2016, we immediately began looking forward to the energy created around North Texas Giving Day and the help that can flow from generous donors through our organization directly into underserved communities in North Texas.

Connecting City To Farm uses the lens of agriculture to battle hunger and promote health. Hunger doesn’t always mean the absence of any calories, but the absence of nutritious calories.

Did you know that fifty percent of children in Dallas County are obese (Cooper Institute)?  It may look contradictory to see hunger and obesity in the same conversation, but many of the kids in Dallas County live in food deserts where there are no grocery stores and therefore limited or no access to the nutritious calories that are needed for physical, mental and emotional health.

With a deep belief that attitudes about nutrition can change as kids see first-hand how farmers invest in our food supply, we created Farm Camp and Farm Day.  These farm experiences offer a learning adventure for students to explore commercial farming operations, meet farmers, observe ag-related processes, and enjoy wide-open spaces.  Health experts guide students through an engaging curriculum that teaches them simple, accessible health truths like Drink More Water, Eat Real Food and Move Every Day.

This unique opportunity that North Texas Giving Day provides will broaden our exposure among donors and partners.  We wait expectantly to see how communities throughout North Texas will respond to our mission.

North Texas Giving Day, the largest giving day in the nation, is back on September 14, 2017! In eight years, North Texas Giving Day has generated $156 million for the community. Learn more about some of the thousands of participating nonprofits here on BubbleLife from now until Giving Day. Read more about today's featured nonprofit, Breast Cancer Can Stick it! below. 

 

I’m April Samuels, a professional drummer out of Dallas, TX, a breast cancer survivor and the founder of Breast Cancer Can Stick It!.  This is my journey…

In 2003, I discovered a lump and found I had fibrocystic, dense breasts, making it harder to detect breast cancer. They ordered ultrasound screening every six months. I continued life, drumming in as many as five bands at a time. After years of benign cyst aspirations and biopsies, it happened.  On Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 9am, my doctor revealed I had the high grade, rare triple negative breast cancer.  My world came to a screeching halt.  I quickly found this wasn’t any ordinary breast cancer, this was serious – a more aggressive, likely to recur breast cancer.  I immediately panicked, canceling all gigs.  My new goal in life:  to survive breast cancer.  Within two weeks of being diagnosed, I came up with the slogan “Breast Cancer Can Stick It!” combining my passion for drumming with my passion of fighting breast cancer.  I started selling shirts online, donating to local charities fighting breast cancer.  Simultaneously, I had a double mastectomy, was hospitalized for five days with a collapsed lung from the port install, and had four months of chemo.  Losing my breasts and hair ignited my drive.  I started producing shirts in bulk, selling them out of my car.  Quickly, I raised thousands of dollars for breast cancer charities through gigs, fundraisers, and sales.  My accountant then suggested we form our own nonprofit. By May of 2013, Breast Cancer Can Stick It! was an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit!  Since 2010, our efforts have raised nearly $100,000 in the fight.  Our events feature celebrity drummers from bands such as P!NK, Jason Aldean, Ozzy, Dio, and more; the celebrity support continues to grow.  Bret Michaels of Poison and Joe Elliot of Def Leppard are sporting our shirts. In 2015, our largest annual fundraiser, Drummathon, began.  In our first year, we raised $13,000 and in the second year, $26,000.  We are looking to the stars for Drummathon 2017.

Breast Cancer Can Stick It! covers the full gamut of fighting breast cancer in North Texas.  We donate to Baylor Sammons Cancer Center for research and trials, and to Parkland for mammograms for uninsured/under-insured individuals.  In 2015, I lost a friend, Dahlia Garcia, to triple negative breast cancer.  She had donated $1,000 saying “this can’t help me anymore, please use it to help someone else”.  To honor her memory, in August 2017, we will start a new program - “Dahila’s Breast Cancer Can Stick It! Fund” – to provide financial assistance to patients for breast cancer treatment.

This year, 12 percent of the funds we put into research, trials, and mammograms were thanks to North Texas Giving Day.  The amount raised through our efforts in North Texas Giving Day 2016 is equivalent to over 20 potentially life-saving mammograms! With the support of powerful fundraising campaigns such as North Texas Giving Day, our donors and 100 percent volunteer staff, Breast Cancer Can Stick It! is fulfilling our dreams by making an impact in our community.  After all, it’s not about saving breasts, it’s about saving lives.
