The Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer is a united, global effort to raise awareness of the opportunities now available to prevent cervical cancer. By working together, partners and supporters involved in the campaign will showcase a united front in the efforts against cervical cancer. To do this, all campaign partners and supporters will promote the Pearl of Wisdom as the global symbol of cervical cancer prevention in order to increase public recognition of the campaign in the same way the pink ribbon serves the breast cancer campaign. In addition, all campaign partners and supporters distribute simple, consistent key messages about cervical cancer to ensure our collective voices will effectively reach women. We recognize that by working together, we can more effectively increase awareness of the new means for preventing cervical cancer, encourage women to take full advantage of these methods, and advocate for the implementation of these tools for girls and women everywhere.
Both Partners and Supporters share the same benefits. Below you’ll find our definition of each group:
The Pearl of Wisdom campaign will showcase your organization’s support for saving women’s lives around the globe.
Benefits to your organization include:
Your organization’s commitment
As a Partner or Supporter, your organization will commit to:
Your organization is welcome to include additional messages that are specific to your constituents and programs when communicating about the Pearl of Wisdom campaign. It is important, though, to also communicate the core set of common messages so that each of our campaigns will support the others and ensure our collective voices will effectively reach out to women.
Yes, provided that you agree to support the campaign as outlined above.
Partners and Supporters can buy a bulk order of the Pearl of Wisdom pin to give away or sell. Partners and Supporters can also participate by encouraging their members to purchase the pins through the Pearl of Wisdom campaign website (www.PearlofWisdom.us).
We would encourage anyone who wants to sell the Pearl of Wisdom pins to become a partner or supporter in the campaign and also help to promote awareness of cervical cancer prevention. Organizations can sell the pins, however, provided the profits go to a recognized and verifiable cervical cancer prevention project or program.
Organizations can sell the pins at a profit and are welcome to charge what they like, recognizing that they can be purchased by the general public for $6.95 on the Pearl of Wisdom Campaign website. However, the profits must go to a recognized and verifiable cervical cancer prevention project or program – either one run by your organization or one run by another to which your organization donates the money.
No. The pins are priced so that initial and ongoing investments, including various activities to promote the pearls of wisdom, can be recouped. Money beyond that will be used for cervical cancer prevention related activities through the U.S. Pearl of Wisdom Campaign Fund, a fund managed by Tamika and Friends.
Tamika and Friends has established the U.S. Pearl of Wisdom Campaign Fund, which will provide funding for cervical cancer prevention activities in the U.S. All funding allocation decisions will be made by a Board comprising representatives from selected founding partners.
