Breast Cancer Awareness

As many of you may already be aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer effects a huge number of Mah Jongg players, both men and women.

We at Where The Winds Blow feel strongly about supporting Breast Cancer Research, and a portion of the sales of our Breast Cancer Tiles and Breast Cancer Seare donated. In addition to all the other tournaments we support (quite numerous!), we especially love supporting the ones that raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

If you are planning a tournament for breast cancer research, make sure to contact us so we can add you to our tournaments page. We also can help out with discounted door prizes and raffle items that will help make your tournament a success!

The Mah Jongg community is passionate about raising money for Breast Cancer Research. Check out some of these amazing organizations and events, both past and future:

“Our new #MahjAcrossAmerica social media campaign raised over $1,000 during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. With these funds, we are launching a new initiative.  SSAMO will be collaborating with cancer treatment  and supportive care facilities to create game centers for their patients and their families. These centers will include Mah Jongg sets, cards, card tables and chairs, and other games to be used during treatments and appointments. We will also be training volunteers in these facilities to play Mah Jongg“

The American Breast Cancer Foundation can help you coordinate a Mah Jongg fundraising event like the one they held in 2017.

“On September 11th, 2017, more than 50 women gathered at Gregorios Restaurant in Potomac Maryland for the “Mahjong and Cards for a Cause” event. The afternoon featured lunch, mahjong, canasta and door prizes for everyone. The event raised funds for American Breast Cancer Foundation’s grant program to provide mammograms, ultrasounds, and other early detection services to uninsured, underinsured, or underserved nationally. “Mahjong and Cards for a Cause” was chaired by Hinda Kahn and Gail Colen.”

If you feel strongly about supporting Breast Cancer Research, why not host a tournament in your town? Here’s a great reference for how to run a successful tournament. Let us know how it goes!
