From now on 50% of our profit will be donated to cancer research.
I know… This is a huge decision!
When we created this store one of our main objectives was to help the humanity donating part of our profits to medical research.
How does it work?
It was really hard to choose one organization to contribute, but our final decision is The Scripps Research Institute.
For every purchase we have at the online store, we will donate 50% of our profit in a single donation once a month specifically designated to “cancer”.
We’ll also keep you updated through this blog on how our donation is being invested.
The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI)
It’s one of the world’s largest non-profit research organizations. It stands at the forefront of basic biomedical science, a vital segment of medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Between their subjects of study, one of the most successful is cancer research.
“The overall goal of the research in the Department of Cancer Biology at the Scripps Florida campus is to fully understand the molecular pathogenesis of human cancers and to exploit this knowledge for the development of new therapeutics. Faculty in the Department study many aspects of normal and tumor cell biology, including metabolism, development, signal transduction pathways, oncogenes and tumor suppressors, apoptosis, the DNA damage response, autophagy, invasion and metastasis, and chemoresistance“. This is how Thomas Kodadek, the head of their cancer biology division defines their research.
