We proudly donate 25% of our net profits to cancer research.
Transparency is incredibly important to us, and we want to make sure our customers are with us every step of the way. We officially opened on October 23, 2019 (welcome to our grand opening!), and made our first donation to the Liposarcoma Genome Project's campaign at Mass General Hospital on December 31, 2019.
From January through September of 2020 we partnered with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation to increase awareness and funding for childhood cancer. We created a special edition awareness collection called the #HopeInTheStars campaign that featured a constellation design that spelled out "Cure Childhood Cancer" within the night sky. 25% of our net profits from January 1 - September 30 was donated to the NPCF on October 1, 2020.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we donated 25% of our net profits to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation on orders placed from October 1 - October 31, 2020. This donation was made on November 1, 2020.
For our November and December orders, Curestitch benefited The Lustgarten Foundation, a 501 non-profit organization foundation dedicated to advancing the research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer while raising public awareness and providing support to patients and their families. We donated 25% of our November net profits to The Lustgarten Foundation on December 1, 2020, and 25% of our December net profits on January 1, 2021.
January 2021 orders will benefit MD Anderson’s HPV-Related Cancers Moon Shots Program in honor of Cervical Health Awareness Month and Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. 25% of January 2021 net profits will be donated to the Moons Shots program on February 1, 2021.
Want to recommend a foundation/research institution for us to consider?
We're always researching where to send our donations. We’re interested in partnering with foundations and both large institutions with a focus on hard-to-treat, rare cancers. Please contact us if you would like the partner with us or know an excellent cancer research institution or foundation we should consider.
Cancer research is a field rife with opportunity for historic breakthroughs that will alter the course of human health. We’re still in the infancy of our understanding of such a complex disease, but each year brings us closer to new developments that could have a global impact on an illness that affects one in three people.
