@GirlWithNoJob Urges Saving Lives of Those with Blood Cancer for Giving Tuesday

Oshry calls for people to join the Gift of Life Marrow Registry
NEW YORK, Nov. 19  – The Gift of Life Marrow Registry is partnering with comedian and host Claudia Oshry, aka @girlwithnojob, to raise awareness and support for the registry ahead of Giving Tuesday, this Nov. 27.
Oshry is the creator of the Instagram account @girlwithnojob (3M followers). A New York University graduate, she built up a huge social media following of millennial women, and now also tours as a comedian who sells out theaters and clubs nationwide. Claudia and her sister, Jackie Oshry (@jackieoproblems), host “The Morning Toast,” the definitive “millennial morning show.” The daily show covers celebrity and business news and the sisters’ personal lives.
“Partnering with Gift of Life was a no-brainer because I am really passionate about Gift of Life and its mission to help people with blood cancer find their matches,” said Claudia Oshry. “It’s so important for people to join Gift of Life because it’s simple and you can actually save someone’s life by doing so!”
To kick off their Gift of Life campaign for Giving Tuesday, the Oshry sisters on Nov. 8 hosted a sold-out SoulCycle ride at Bryant Park to support the nonprofit organization. During the class, the sisters encouraged their “toasters” (viewers of their show) to join the registry.
Tickets to the event were snapped up in less than 20 minutes after being announced on “The Morning Toast” and on the show’s private Facebook group. Those who could not attend were encouraged to otherwise support Gift of Life, by going to (giftoflife.org/GTNoJob). Prior to Giving Tuesday, the Oshrys are promoting Gift of Life on their social media platforms as well.
Since its start in 1991, Gift of Life has grown the registry to more than 310,000 individuals who have volunteered to donate blood stem cells or bone marrow to save a life. In the process, Gift of Life has facilitated over 15,000 matches for those with a range of blood cancers, resulting in more than 3,300 transplants.
Claudia Oshry is represented by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and ICM Partners.
