chemo comfort bags: a project

**I did this project in early 2015 as a way to give back to patients on the journey through Chemotherapy. I am not currently working on another round of this project. Please feel free to use this idea in your hometown!***

Alright friends and family! I have something really great that I’m working on! I want to sponsor 31 Chemo Comfort Bags to deliver to Cape Fear Cancer Specialists Chemo Center in Wilmington, NC next month. And I need your help! (That’s right – last time went so well, we’re doing it again!!) One of my many goals this year is to GIVE BACK. And this is just the first endeavor!

Thirty One Chemo Comfort Bags

Each and every bag will be tagged in memory or in honor of a loved one of the specific person who donates. Check out the pictures below of the items that made it into just SOME of my friends bags last year!! Your $25 donation will provide a large zip-top tote bag that has 7 pockets and I will take care of the rest! They can use the bags to carry their personal items (books, electronics, drinks & supplies) to/from their treatment appointments throughout their journey. I know we can pull this off together and bless some amazing people during a time when they could sure use a blessing!

Here is how it works: You can sponsor as many bags as you would like for $25 each. I will use ALL of my commissions that are made on the bags to fill them with things like chapstick, warm socks, blankets, crossword puzzles, tissues, candy, etc. If you would like to sponsor a bag, please message me on facebook (HERE) and I will follow up with you via private message!

    Hi! I love this idea! I’m currently trying to get this going in my area. I was wondering how successful you were with this? I only see a few bags in the post. I’m setting a goal of 31 bags! Wish me luck!

      Anna – that’s so exciting! we did a few rounds over about a year and a half. In total I think we delivered nearly 100bags!! Probably 20-30 each time!

    Hi. I have been looking for something like this for my aunt. She just recently started chemo for stage 3c ovarian cancer. Is there anyway I could buy one off you? I’m willing to pay more than the $25 if I need to. Thanks!

      Hi Kim! Unfortunately I’m not currently working on this project. All of our bags have been distributed! They are super easy to make though, and most items can be found at the dollar store! Send my love to your aunt!! – Annalee

    Where did you buy the totes? I love that they are bright, happy colors! I’d love to make some chemo comfort bags for my local area.
