Display Window Helps Raise Awareness For Pediatric Cancer
NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Max Cure Foundation (MCF) will take over the giant display window at 10 Rockefeller on The Today Show Plaza just steps away from the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. This opportunity to highlight Max Cure and its mission to advance the fight against pediatric cancer was made possible by EHE International.
The 115 square foot exhibit will contain childhood cancer facts and will feature MCF's Dunk Your Kicks program. This campaign is a fun way of teaching philanthropy throughout the community by asking people to donate their old sneakers. MCF sells the "kicks" to an international recycler. Monies received to MCF will go towards advancing their mission. The recycler then sells the sneakers in emerging market countries in the Affordable Clothing Market.
"We are honored that EHE International chose The Max Cure Foundation and believes in our cause," says Max Cure Foundation Chairman, David Plotkin.
The window will showcase MCF's mascot, Lion Max. He will act as Santa and sit on a throne with a TV monitor playing highlights from MCF's events over the years. He will be holding a scroll that reads "All I want this holiday is a cure."
All display sneakers were generously donated by Maine Camp Experience.
"We are happy to do our part and share in the passion of The Max Cure Foundation," says President of EHE International, Deborah McKeever.
Max Cure Foundation's Dunk Your Kicks is taking the country by storm and is doing it one dunk at a time. The window will be on display December 1, 2013 until December 31, 2013.
