Their Mission: Helping Families Fight Cancer

“Almost all of us have been affected by a family member or friend who has had cancer. One of the toughest struggles during this time is the family finances as patients and spouses have to limit or stop working during this time. We want to help those families pay for treatments, pay rent, put food on the table, get a new backpack for their children, or anything else they might need. The Design Community is taking a stance in the fight against cancer. We will be selling premium quality goods, and the profits will go fully towards directly impacting families during their fight as well as cancer research. We’d love for you to sign up for our newsletter and learn more about our cause and the passion behind it!”

Please contact them if you have any questions and/or want to get involved with the cause!
