Cooper Troopers for Childhood Cancer Awareness

Cooper Troopers
Handmade Cooperative are making a difference by fundraising for Children’s Cancer Institute, a cause that is close to our hearts.

Every year more than 950 Australian children and adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer.

Sixty years ago, cancer was nearly always a death sentence for a child. Now eight out of ten children survive – and it’s medical research that has made this huge difference. Children’s Cancer Institute is the only independent medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer. The Institute’s role is vital – because, despite their progress, cancer still kills more children than any other disease.

From today, the members of Handmade Cooperative are donating the proceeds from the sale price of products to Children’s Cancer Institute. You can find this range of these items through our pop up online store. The #HCCooperTroopers range will be available for purchase until 31 August 2016.

We look forward to your support to cure kids cancer.
