Here at KAB, we believe that grassroots action is key to larger awareness. We’ve learned that many young people are activists at heart, who want to play a part in the bigger and better good. So we’ve developed the DIY Action Program, a unique avenue for anyone to donate their time and influence the lives of others. This program is an invitation to step in and start making a difference. Through DIY Action, anyone—individuals or groups—can organize their own KAB benefit show or custom fundraiser to support our Mission.
DIY Action has become one of our most successful fundraising and awareness programs. We encourage all types of ideas, and past events include dance competitions, comedy shows, art exhibitions, bakes sales, sports events, Breast Cast™ Galleries, and benefit shows headlined by influential musicians. DIY Action is also the perfect platform for college philanthropists, as student groups, fraternities and sororities are welcome to participate. Large or small, all events were successful and empowering examples of community outreach.
We provide participants with access to organizational assistance and supplies, such as Check Your Self! breast self exam cards and other educational materials. We also assist in areas such as event promotion. Finally, we provide access to online marketing and fundraising tools such as StayClassy.
100% of the proceeds from DIY fundraisers benefit The Keep A Breast Foundation. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences on the KAB website.
How does it support the KAB mission?
This program inspires local-level awareness and action. It helps spread awareness of breast cancer prevention and environmental health through grassroots campaigning, and brings our message to different interest groups. Most important, it empowers young people to better themselves and their communities, which in turn expands our network of breast health activists.
Can I participate?
DIY stands for “do-it-yourself”, and by “you” we mean any person or group with a good idea and the energy to pull it off. If you can demonstrate that you are inspired, welcome aboard!
All types have participated in the program. Small student groups have organized fundraisers. Community groups, sports teams, and local charities have set up events. Hundreds of bands have donated their time to play KAB benefit shows.
If you are interested in hosting a Keep A Breast Foundation Breast Cast™ Exhibition in your community, please submit an inquiry to email@example.com.
Where do I start?
All participants must begin by submitting their idea and information on our online application. All applications must be received at least 6 weeks before the planned event date. Please read and complete the application thoroughly and send it, with any additional question, to firstname.lastname@example.org. KAB Breast Casts™ are also trademarked, so participants must complete an agreement for approval.
