5 Holiday Gift Ideas that Fight Colorectal Cancer


Well, Thanksgiving is over folks. And that means that the holiday season is now fully unleashed… although many of you were already sneaking in holiday songs and decor WEEKS ago.

As shoppers ramp up this weekend, scour the ads for gift ideas and plunder retail store shelves to find the perfect gift, we wanted to throw our hat in the ring. Here are some ways you can give a great holiday gift AND fight colorectal cancer at the same time:

1. Give The Gift of TRAVEL!

In 2014, Fight Colorectal Cancer has several events coming up – especially in March. Surprise your loved one by taking him or her to one of our upcoming events:

NYC – One Million Strong March

Come participate in our all-day event in New York City’s Grand Central Station on March 3. The day will include yoga, dancing, a photo booth and even a march for colorectal cancer. We’re even having a vow renewal ceremony for survivors and their caregivers. Learn more now.

Washington, D.C. – Call-on Congress

Is someone in your life passionate about policy and legislation (and colorectal cancer) in your life? Take a trip to Call-on Congress! A trip to D.C. is life-changing – have them join us in the fight on the Hill next year! Call-on Congress is March 16-18.  Read more about Call-on Congress.

2. Blue Star Gear

Fight Colorectal Cancer gear makes a great gift for those in the fight! Consider a new t-shirthat or even an ornament this holiday season.

3. Donations Make Sense

A donation to a cause makes a great gift. Your donation to Fight Colorectal Cancer will fund awareness, research and advocacy efforts. Plus, if you donate in HONOR or in MEMORY  of someone, we list their name in our next issue of Beyond Blue. You can even request for us to send someone a letter letting him or her know you donated in their honor (or in memory of a loved one.) Donate Now.

Our #GivingTuesday campaign includes giving away colon cancer screening tests (FIT tests) for every $25 donation we receive. (Thanks to Quest Diagnostics). Our founder Nancy Roach is matching each gift until the end of the year – doubling your impact!

Give the gift of PREVENTION.  Make your donation now! 

4. Shop with Purpose

Shopping online for gifts but still want to donate in some way? Easy! You can shop online and have proceeds go to us. Two options:

  • We-Care.com — Choose us as your cause, click on a vendor, make your purchase and a portion of your sale will be donated to us. Plus, you can download a simple browser app that automatically reminds you when your online shopping purchases can apply. (Search for us by Fight Colorectal Cancer.)
  • Amazon Smile – Same idea – shop via Amazon, select us as your cause and we’ll receive a donation. (Search for us by C:3 Colorectal Cancer Coalition.)

5. Shop with our Advocates

We have a few advocates with online stores who donate a portion of their proceeds to us. Check out these guys if you need a fun gift idea.

Blue Ribbon Dresses

Shopping for a little princess? Casey has an Etsy store where she makes princess dresses for little girls. In memory of her mom, Casey donates back a portion of her sales to Fight Colorectal Cancer! Visit the Blue Ribbon Dresses store! 

I Heart Booty

For the feisty survivor in your life – consider some I Heart Booty gear. Not only is this stuff hilarious, but it gets attention and furthers our cause. Jesse donates 10% of his sales to us. Check it out! 


If you or a loved one have been impacted by colorectal cancer, consider gift ideas furthering our cause and passion this year! Happy shopping!
