New stretch target


We are the CoppaFeel! Boobettes and this October we’re crowdfunding to raise as much money as possible to enable CoppaFeel! to continue sending us into schools, colleges and businesses to share our stories and talk boobs!

 

All the money we raise will enable me to visit schools, colleges and businesses to educate everyone about the importance of checking their boobs.

But it isn’t all about the pennies, we also want to spread the word about what we do and encourage you to book a (FREE) Boobette session, so we can tell you why checking your boobs could potentially one day save your life!

 

About CoppaFeel!...

CoppaFeel!’s mission is to make sure all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, making treatments more effective and survival rates higher. Funds raised will enable us to continue to educate young people about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, highlighting that knowing their boobs could potentially save their life. With nearly 12,000 people dying from breast cancer every year in the UK, getting to know your body and spotting any changes early is vital.As a Boobette, I visit schools, colleges, businesses, even community groups in order to spread awareness amongst young people. We are a group of young women aged between 18-35 that have been diagnosed with breast cancer, have had a scare or are passionate about spreading awareness. We share our own experiences in order to engage audiences and encourage them to start a habit of a lifetime. The Boobette programme has been running since 2011, helping to increase awareness of signs and symptoms, spread the importance of self-checking from an early age and empowering young people to feel confident about speaking to their GP if they spot anything abnormal. I’m part of an 80-strong army of Boobette volunteers and we are all incredibly passionate about saving lives. But we need your help.

 

How does all this work?

We’re trying to raise as much as possible for CoppaFeel! and need your help to do so. There are some rewards on the right of the page, that’s what you get if you pledge your support! When you pledge, no money will leave your account until the end of October, when we get to see the grand total of what the Boobettes and I have collectively raised!

 

How can you get involved?

There are 3 super important things you can do to help me raise as much as possible during this campaign:

1)         Pick a reward you like and pledge!

2)         Once you’ve pledged, please share my project with everyone you can- I’m talking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, emails...

3)         Book yourself a (FREE) Boobette session HERE, so we can tell you why checking your boobs could potentially one day save your life!

And of course CHECK YOUR BOOBS!
