We’re Making A Difference!


  First of all, let me just say thank you to all of our supporters – old & new – who have been helping us with the #UpgradeYourWorld social media challenge! We are definitely making an impact, and Microsoft has already made. $500 donation to Dragon Master Foundation. They’ve also offered some help with some other small projects! That’s amazing! Just a couple of weeks ago, they probably didn’t know we existed!

Folks keep asking how we are doing in the contest, and I’ve gotta say, it’s hard to tell. It seems like some of the groups that have a lot of posts don’t qualify because they are not international organizations. Dragon Master Foundation IS an international organization. We have a participating hospital in Italy, and all of our data will be accessible via the web – making it a resource for researchers around the world!

We are so excited about all the new people who have heard about Dragon Master Foundation and our quest to end cancer. We are starting with pediatric brain cancer because it is one of the most deadly, but we are adding adult records and other types of cancers/diseases. It will be a one-stop shop for disease research when we are done. We have already started a process with other rare disease groups to get their data into the database. It’s going to be epic!

But we still need your help – and a lot of it! Please post EVERY DAY, at least once per day, to vote for Dragon Master Foundation. Only one post per day/per social media platform will count as a vote (1 for Twitter & 1 for Instagram), but the more you post, the more people will see it. So feel free to post in the am and pm. 

We are super excited that so many of you have signed up for Twitter and/or Instagram just to help with this contest! If you are wanting to sign up and help, it’s not too late! Here’s all you need to do:

On Twitter, post:

I #vote for @dragonmasterfdn to #UpgradeYourWorld by bringing the power of big data to cancer research.

You can phrase it differently if you want, and if you are short on time, just tweet:

#vote @dragonmasterfdn #UpgradeYourWorld

Including a picture is great, but not required on Twitter.

On Instagram:

Upload any photo you want and then as the caption, write: 

I #vote for @dragonmasterfdn to #UpgradeYourWorld by bringing the power of big data to cancer research.

On Instagram you can add a lot more hashtags, so feel free to add tags related to the picture or to the cause. We’ve added #Disney & #Avengers to pics that showed kids in costumes. Or #gogold & #childhoodcancerawareness are good ones for childhood cancer. If you are more focused on brain cancer, #braincancer, #braintumorThursday or #btsm are all great tags.

Only new posts count – liking and retweeting don’t count as votes. Overall, the number of votes is very low, so we could make a huge difference by getting a large number of people involved – even this deep into the contest. Please keep sharing and asking others to share until 8/23! 

Thank you all for helping us!💖
