Today I received a lovely surprise in the mail from Amy, a member of BTFC. I’ve been in contact with Amy Mathias throughout my book launch as we connected through social media. Amy is the Fundraising Engagement and Development Associate of BTFC and she’s an amazing individual.
When Amy learned about my novel, I had the privilege to virtually meet her and some of her team. We talked about my campaign and I even worked out a collaboration where I helped BTFC create a video on their landing page for a new initiative called ‘Your Way.’
The opportunity to connect with a foundation that does so much for the brain tumour community was amazing. Also, having the opportunity to work with Amy to create a video for both the English and French landing page of ‘Your Way’ was an opportunity of a lifetime. It’s not everyday you get a chance to create a video for a foundation’s homepage. Admittedly, it was pretty cool!
My fundraising goal for the Brain Tumour Walk was $500, and when our team (Team #HoldOnPleaseEmily) reached our goal, Amy immediately sent me a thank you email. Later on, I received a lovely package with these grey ribbons and stickers for members of my team to wear proudly on Walk Day. Plus, a spiffy pair of BTFC socks. I look forward to wear everything proudly on Walk Day (including the socks!) and represent BTFC with pride. I wrote my novel, ‘Hold on please, Emily,’ hoping that my story would resonate with others. I’m so glad that BTFC supports my mission to raise awareness and bring hope. It means so much to have the support of people like Amy.
Thank you a million.
