How shopping at Spruce can help fight breast cancer
Spruce, one of my favorite lifestyle stores, has forged a partnership with Thrive CDO, a breast cancer awareness advocacy group in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao. In order to support Thrive CDO and its campaigns, Spruce has created a very special line of trendy, comfortable and very affordable shoes! The line is called Spruce PINKed and for every purchase of a pair, a portion of the money goes to Thrive CDO.
Actually, there’s a personal reason behind this Spruce-Thrive CDO partnership. The Tamparong sisters, the amiable trio behind Spruce, found out that their mom Maridel was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. The news pretty much shook the sisters especially since their mom seemed healthy and energetic. With God’s grace, however, since the cancer was detected in the early stages, treatment was prompt and successful. Now, the Tamparong matriarch has been cancer-free for 3 years running and the sisters have vowed to do their share in helping spread awareness on the importance of early breast cancer detection.
And with this partnership with Thrive CDO, you can be sure that not only can you help spread awareness, you can also help Thrive as they provide other emotional support and other forms of assistance to breast cancer patients.
Here are the pretty Spruce PINKed shoe designs. I’m eyeing two pairs including the Amaya design 🙂 How about you?
Visit the Spruce boutiques at Centrio Mall (2nd floor) and at Limketkai Mall (2nd floor) today. You can either buy a pair for yourself or you can buy a pair for a friend! These will make truly perfect, thoughtful gifts 🙂 The Spruce PINKed collection will also be updated monthly 🙂
Please feel free to share this post with all of your friends! You can also tweet this so more people will know about the Spruce PINKed collection. If you plan to buy a pair or if you’ve already bought a pair, please let me know in the comments section below or you can also tweet me at @mindanaoan 🙂 I’ll make sure I’ll send a massive shoutout to you! *thumbs up*
