Tervis Tumbler Company Partners with American Cancer Society for Drinkware Line
Tervis Tumbler Company, North Venice, Fla., joined forces with the American Cancer Society to create a limited edition series of tumblers and water bottles with designs featuring handprints of cancer patients and their families.
According to 83 Degrees Media, Tervis Tumbler Company plans to donate 10 percent of sale proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
The artwork, designed at the Winn Dixie Hope Lodge in Atlanta, depicts the handprints as butterflies, honoring those who lost their lives to cancer and to personify the hope and bravery of those currently fighting.
“When we met with the American Cancer Society about this project, every team member was incredibly moved by the Hands of Hope story,” Rogan Donelly, president of Tervis Tumbler Company, told 83 Degrees Media. “Tervis customers have always gotten behind our activism designs, but we had been hearing lately that they wished we had other cancer support designs beyond just the Pink Ribbon Collection for breast cancer awareness. We loved how inclusive this project was of all cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters.”
Over the years, Tervis Tumbler Company has donated more than $100,000 to cancer research and local foundations, but Donelly said he wanted the company to take it a step further.
“It was the perfect opportunity to work together to champion cancer education and research,” he said. “We see this as the beginning of a long-term partnership.”
“The American Cancer Society is grateful for the support of corporate partners, such as Tervis, who have developed distinctive and creative products to encourage their customers to become involved in raising awareness and funds to end cancer,” Sharon Byers, chief development and marketing officer for the American Cancer Society, told 83 Degrees Media. “We’re excited to collaborate to increase awareness of all cancers to help end the pain and suffering caused by this disease.”
