Misfits for a Cause - Chosen Charities Announcement!
Posted on 24 August 2015
We are thrilled to finally announce the two charities we've picked for our new year-long Misfits for a Cause initiative! We are bringing back one of your favourites from our monthly initiative, and adding a new organization that was slated for August before we planned our re-launch!
Any guesses? You betcha, our come-back charity is Skate4Cancer (Wellspring)! We are STILL getting requests for the exclusive designs we created for them back in April, and we are more than pleased to support their endeavours to fight cancer. Wellspring and Skate4Cancer continue to provide those with cancer the psycho-social, emotional and practical programs and services needed when facing a cancer diagnoses, all free of charge. Check out why we picked them the first time around here, and check back in the coming weeks for their designs to return to the store!
As for our newbie charity, we've actually already starting fundraising for them with our Axes to Fight Cancer event last week. We were able to bring in almost $700 for the Dear Jack Foundation, and we could not be more pleased! The DJF advocates for and supports initiatives that directly benefit adolescents and young adults (AYA) diagnosed with cancer. Their fight is close to our hearts, and we look forward to continue raising money for them throughout the coming year with brand new exclusive designs about to hit the store!
As always, our Misfits for a Cause lines donate 100% to their respective charities. We are so thankful for your continued support, and we know you'll love the new designs! Keep rockin' misfits.
