Giving back to our community and helping those in need has always been a core value of PK Beans. This past October we started two initiatives in support of Breast Cancer Awareness after a friend reached out to our Founder & CEO, Traci Costa, to create her sister something to keep her head warm while she was undergoing chemo treatments. (Read the full story on our previous blog post HERE.) Without hesitation, Traci created a Head Cozy from pre-loved PK Beans fabric. These soon became a part of our sustainable initiative, PK RePLAY, and for every one sold in October, we donated one to a woman fighting breast cancer.
We still felt there was more we could do to support, so we also offered to donate 10% of our sales from every Monday of the month to the Canadian Cancer Society.
With that said, we wanted to say a HUGE thank you to anyone who ordered a Head Cozy or placed an order on a Monday in October. With your help we were able to donate over 50 Head Cozies to a woman fighting breast cancer AND we were able to donate $776.39 to the Canadian Cancer Society. To some, this amount may seem small, however, we know that every little bit counts and we are so grateful that we can support in this way.
