Shake, Share & Care with the Tic Tac® Brand
Tic Tac mints are bringing back two well-loved traditions this Fall – the Shake, Share & Care campaign, and the limited-edition Pink Grapefruit Tic Tac flavor.
Simply visit the new Tic Tac USA Facebook page and post an act of caring (anything you’ve done for someone affected by cancer) on the Share & Care tab. For each person that posts, Tic Tac mints will donate $5 to CancerCare, up to $100,000* (in addition to the $100,000 the brand has already donated).
And look for the limited-edition Pink Grapefruit flavor in stores near you. A portion of the proceeds support CancerCare’s free support services for those affected by cancer.
*Only one donation per person/per act of caring. Minimum guaranteed donation of $25,000, up to $100,000.
 
2011 SHOW US YOUR BRA!™ CALENDAR
For more than 20 years, CancerCare has held Prosthesis Clinics, providing free breast prostheses and post-mastectomy bras for women living with and beyond breast cancer.
This year we’ve teamed up with three other nonprofits which help people affected by breast cancer (The Breast Form Fund, Cancer Resource Foundation, and Luminous Breast Cancer Foundation) to form All4One Alliance, an initiative aimed at expanding each organization’s ability to provide critical services to women with breast cancer.
