What is a Comfort Box?

Anxiety, stress, confusion, and fear can overtake your mind when you are diagnosed with breast cancer. Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio is here to help support those who have been recently diagnosed by providing a free Comfort Box. With these Comfort Boxes, we hope to give someone a sense of love, strength, and positivity along their journey. This box has items we believe to be helpful and thoughtful during treatment or during someone’s day-to-day routine.
 
Items included in a Comfort Box may include (subject to availability):
  • Fuzzy blanket
  • Scarf
  • Water bottle
  • Chapstick
  • Notebook and pen
  • Change purse
  • Survivor t-shirt
  • Handwritten card with a message from the loved one requesting the box

Each Comfort Box costs approximately $25 for the items and for shipping. All donations received on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020, will go towards supporting our free Comfort Box program.

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources. #GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
