Join Caribou Coffee's Community Video Project to Recognize Cancer Caregivers


For the past 21 years, Caribou Coffee has supported those impacted by breast cancer in memory of their original Roastmaster, Amy Erickson, who passed away from cancer in 1995. This year, Caribou invites you to pay TRIBUTE and thank cancer caregivers everywhere as part of their community video project in partnership with Tributean innovative web application that makes it easy for people to show their gratitude
 
Beginning today, visit Tribute.co/CaribouTribute to record your own video in less than 60 seconds and show appreciation to cancer caregivers all over the country. For every video submitted, Caribou will donate $5 to CancerCare. Share your participation using #CaribouTribute and encourage friends and family to submit a Tribute video, as well.

A Multiple Myeloma Patient Shares Her Experience
 
"After I was diagnosed, I was so overwhelmed. I wasn't interested in contacting anybody. I just wanted this to go away; it was a mistake.


"Eventually, I contacted CancerCare and they were so nice and calming. I set up counseling appointments every week for several months, and they were so helpful."
