Every year on Modern Mix Vancouver, we publish a shopping guide for products which give back to breast cancer awareness month by donating partial proceeds from every purchase to charity. But what if you actually personally know someone who is going through breast cancer treatment, and want to personally brighten up their situation and make their day more comfortable?
“Sure, flowers and cards are a nice gesture, but there are more useful gifts that can actually help her get through the hard days ahead.” – Give-A-Care
Introducing Give-A-Care: a collection of helpful, high-quality products created by Rethink Breast Cancer, a registered Canadian charity with over 15 years experience working with young women with breast cancer. Not only are these gifts practical, but their colourful and contemporary packaging and cheeky product descriptions are bound to at least put a smile on someone’s face.
All of the products curated by Give-A-Care are designed to open doors for conversations, while staying real with your girlfriends who are going through cancer treatment. For example, the “when-life-gives-you-lemons-and-those-lemons-taste-like-chemo-you-need candies” or the “you-can-take-away-my-hair-but-you-can-never-take-away-my lipstick“. The Give-A-Care products have just the right balance of humour and empathy, keeping conversations around the often-taboo topic of breast cancer treatment lighthearted yet sensitive towards what someone is going through.
Product partners of Give-A-Care include Aveda, H&M, Pluck Teas, Leaves of Trees and The Cashmere Shop. 100% of proceeds from the Give-A-Care Collection will help fund Rethink Breast Cancer’s programs that support young women and families affected by breast cancer.
