One week ago, Argyle Empire and many others within our online community were devastated to learn that Terry Aisenstein (aka @TerryTheNurse), had lost her long battle with cancer.
When word began to spread of Terry’s death, our social media timelines filled with expressions of love for our dear friend. It was clear that many were saddened. It was also clear that many wanted to do something to celebrate Terry’s memory.
With that in mind, we decided to plan a fundraiser in her honor.
Like the rest of us, Terry was an avid reader and so Argyle Empire began reaching out to authors within the community, requesting donations to help us launch our #TeamTerry campaign.
Simply put, the response was tremendous!
Shortly before her passing, Terry expressed hope that donations could be made to Fox Chase Cancer Center, where she had received treatment for her illness.
Additionally, some have stated their intentions to contribute to Covenant House, a charity Terry was a strong supporter of.
Having chosen these two organizations to benefit from this effort, we are overwhelmed and excited to announce that we have 9 fantastic giveaway packages to offer to participating donors.
In total, there are more than 40 items on offer from a talented and generous group of your favorite authors.
All we ask of you is the following …
Donate a minimum of $10.00 to either Fox Chase Cancer Center or Covenant House in Memory of Terry Aisenstein, (if at all possible, please consider splitting your gift between both charities).
Afterwards, email a copy of your receipt to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and enter the giveaway!
The giveaway will go live on June 8th
and remain open until June 19th. It is open internationally.
While we grieve for the loss of a valuable Argyle Empire contributor and beloved friend, we take comfort in our ability to help others in celebration of her.
Please donate to two very worthy causes
and join us as a proud member of #TeamTerry.
