It's out with the old and in with the new for the 2019 fundraising season. We've said goodbye to solid pink belts and are excited to be sending out camo pink belts this year for all participants instead!
About the Pink Belt Revolution:
One of the ways Wishing for Mommy has been raising money for our grants is through the various efforts of Martial Arts schools and organizations across the United States by joining in on the PINK BELT REVOLUTION and wearing pink belts to their classes during October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month).
Where does the money go?
The belts are to be sold for $20. Proceeds are going toward Wishing for Mommy, a campaign in which we are giving $500 grants to children of mothers who are battling breast cancer. To nominate their mommy, The child (or adult assistant) will be asked to write a 1-page explanation about what they would like to do for their mommy to help her through her battle if they had the money to make it happen.
ATA School Owners will also have half of their funds from pink belt sales allocated the H.U. Lee Memorial Foundation Scholarships to help students with their college endeavors.
School Owner? Get belts at no cost.
You can order a pink belt kit on consignment (we ship them to you for free). Your kit will consist of a custom belt order as well as posters, flyers, belt order forms and grant application forms. We ask that you return funds to us in the form of a check, online payment or phone credit card as soon as possible, or by December 1st at the latest.
What you get out of it:
If a nomination comes across our desk and is chosen for a mother that lives in your area, we will ask that your academy be a part of personally presenting the money to the child/mother as well as that the money be given on your academy's behalf.
NEW 2019: ATA school owners may select (1) 4th° or higher from their academy to be the recipient of 10 leadership points. This information will be requested with your custom belt order.
This is the Pink Belt Revolution's 7th Year!
