From volunteer Allison Rosen

  1. Allison Rosen at #BlueforCRC press conference in HoustonStart early, it is hard to get people to commit at the last minute.
  2. If you see a building that was another color (like pink for breast cancer awareness) it has the potential to turn blue.
  3. No place is too small, if a bank or other business is blue, call them. The more buildings and landmarks the better.
  4. If a company, medical center, or business doesn’t have lights ask if they would be willing to wear blue on a certain date and post to social using #BlueforCRC to create social media buzz.
  5. Share the unified messaging and ask those participating to tweet, share it on social. They like it when they are given exactly what to say.
  6. PERSONALIZE EVERYTHING! In every email and phone call include your personal connection to the
    colorectal cancer, as a patient, survivor, or caregiver. Make it really hard to say ‘No’!

See all of Allison’s tips in the #BlueForCRC Volunteer Toolkit.

  1. 1 in 24 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in their lifetime. Thank you [tagged landmark or city] for going BLUE to support patients and survivors during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. #BlueForCRC #colorectalcancer @coloncancercoal @fightcrc
  2. For Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, I’m excited that [tagged landmark or city] is going BLUE to help raise awareness and encourage life-saving screenings for colon and rectal cancer. #BlueForCRC #colorectalcancer @coloncancercoal @fightcrc
  3. #ColorectalCancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States among men and women combined. That’s why we are going #BlueForCRC to encourage screening for this largely preventable cancer. @ColonCancerCoal @FightCRC @AmericanCancer

Use #BlueForCRC in all your CRC Awareness posts in March. And add a state-specific hashtag to find others raising awareness in your state.
