Reflecting on 2020 and Introducing "HOPE Handbags!"
While HOPE Getaways are on hold, B the Light wants to continue our mission of shining light on breast cancer survivors during their journey.
We are creating “HOPE handbags” and would love your ideas on what to put in them! We will have one option for local families (New Ulm/Sleepy eye), and one for families in other parts of Minnesota and Iowa!
Check in on our Facebook page or email us at and send us a message to let us know, locally-what gift cards or gifts from small businesses should we add to support them during this time that also would be a blessing to a survivor?
If you are a survivor or have been on this journey, what was your favorite gift you received?
Despite the challenges of 2020, we are so grateful for the community support!! With your help, we have been able to:
•Grant 4 HOPE Getaways to breast cancer survivors and their families.
•Give away 17 HOPE Handbags to local survivors.
•Donate to the Brown County Food Shelf.
•Give flowers to chemo patients and nurses at the New Ulm Medical Center.
• Pay for t-shirts for the Sleepy Eye Medical Center nurses.
•Give over $1,000 in donations to survivors in need that were nominated.
•Pay for lymphedema equipment not covered by insurance.
•Donate to “Pledge A Meal” to help local restaurants and families during Covid.
Thank you for supporting B the Light. Cheers to shining more light together in 2021!
This time of year is a time of giving and also a time to shine light by doing good. We hand picked some special items just to make both possible. We think this swag is pretty fun so please consider not only #shoppinglocal to support local businesses in this time of need, also grab a stocking stuffer from B the Light to help us, help others.
Thank you, as always for your support!
B the Light Survivors Facebook Group Page is Launched
As part of our mission to connect and support breast cancer survivors in Minnesota and Iowa, we recently launched a closed and private Facebook group. This space is a healthy, supportive, warm environment to share stories, information and shine light upon each other as you go through your breast cancer journey.
COMBINING FORCES FOR A CAUSE - 11.7.2020
We are stoked to have partnered with The Wellness Collective in New Ulm, MN. This partnership will allow us resources to holistic healing, peer groups, and the chance to have a buddy in kicking cancer!
Our first initiative is combining forces for the upcoming Give to the Max Day - Thursday, November 19, 2020 - Between our two 501c3 organizations, we utilize donations to impact the community around us.
Please consider supporting our missions and #GIVETOTHEMAX
EVEN COVID-19 CAN'T DARKEN THE LIGHT!
This last month has gone down in history for B the Light as one of the most rewarding. Watching participants of our Walk a Mile in Their Shoes fundraiser was pure joy.
Together we raised over $50,000 and at the same time we proved that although cancer doesn't stop during a pandemic, we can stand strong and unified against it.
Thank you to all of our participants and sponsors for making this a wild success. With your support, B the Light can carry on our mission for another year!
