Help Recognize Caregivers During Breast Cancer Awareness Month With Caribou Coffee's Community Video Project

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 Tribute, an innovative web application that makes it easy for people to show their gratitude.

Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please visit 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.

Finding Breast Cancer Support

For more than 30 years, October has been recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with the goal of increasing awareness of the diagnosis and raising funds to support research. Since 1944, CancerCare has provided free support services to anyone affected by any cancer diagnosis, and many of the patients and caregivers who contact us each year are coping with a breast cancer. Learn about our free support services, including counseling, support groups, education, financial assistance, and referrals to resources in your community in our latest blog post.
