We are thrilled to announce that October is AEPi month at Gift of Life, one of our ten Official Philanthropy Program (OPP) partners! All month long Gift of Life will be running drives with chapters all over the United States and Canada to add people to the bone marrow registry and the chapters that go above and beyond will be rewarded. There are three ways to participate this month:
Swab your brothers
During the month of October, swab your brothers after a chapter meeting. This is a quick and easy way for the whole chapter to be involved.
Run a drive on campus
Set up a table in a popular spot on campus and help add people to the registry! Engage with your campus and help us on the mission to end blood cancer.
Create an event
Throw a fundraiser with your local Chipotle/Panda Express, etc. Some other ideas that past chapters have done: Jews Cruise, Tie-Dye Fundraiser, bake sales.
This month is about saving lives and raising awareness! All chapters that set up drives will receive custom AEPi/Gift of Life koozies and banquet cups! And, the top 3 chapters that swab the most brothers will get flat screens!
This toolkit that will help brothers navigate through this month and host successful drives.
