Together, we can all help to #ConquerBloodCancers!

Every 3 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. That means that during September, Blood Cancer Awareness Monthmore than 14,000 people will be diagnosed. Please donate today to help us continue to raise awareness and funding for research and patient programs.

Use Instagram Story Donate Button!

Maybe you’re not on Facebook, but you’re on Instagram. There is still a way for you to wield your personal following to impact positive change in blood cancer research! Instagram Stories now offer a donation sticker in their add-ons menu (where you find all of your other Instagram Story stickers).

Try putting the sticker on a story that is relevant to the cause you are supporting. Record yourself talking about why you believe it’s so important to donate to blood cancer research, or place the sticker over an image of someone you know who has been affected by blood cancers.

Use Instagram Story Donate Button!

  • Open the Instagram stories feature on your account and choose an image to use
  • Select the square smiley face button in the upper right hand corner (the third button from the right)
  • Find the green and blue button that says “Donation” and select this option
  • In the search bar, type “Leukemia Research” and select the Leukemia Research Foundation Instagram
  • Edit your message (or use the generated message)
  • Post to your story by selecting “Your Story” in the bottom left corner
  • After you follow these steps, when people see your donation sticker in your story they can tap “Donate” to donate to the Leukemia Research Foundation. You will be able to view the total amount you have helped fundraise for LRF and donations by username by swiping up on your posted story.

Your followers will only be able to donate off of your Instagram story for 24 hours after you post a story, as Instagram takes deletes your story a day after it is posted. You can create Instagram story fundraisers for LRF as often as you want, so the more stories you post, the more you can help conquer blood cancers!
