Why Kindness Kits?
About The Kindness Kits
The emotional and financial toll of living with terminal cancer is hefty. As a way to honor our friends Sharla and Marcia, both of whom we lost to breast cancer, and to spread their legacy of kindness, fun, joy, and giving, we are collecting funds to distribute "Kindness Kits."
Each Kindness Kit will include gift cards to stores like Target, Safeway, Walgreens so the recipients can shop for what they want. There will be a few other lovely items to help ease the burden of living with a terminal disease. We lovingly wrap each item so the kit is a fun surprise.
The Kits will be distributed to women under 50 with metastatic (Stage IV) breast cancer through our San Francisco Bay Area partner organizations. Through these kits, we will spread our "possibilitarian" spirit.
To date, this fund has raised $19,000 and we will be distributing 25 kits in the fall. Our goal is to raise funds to distribute an additional 25 kits during the December holidays.
