      Proudly Supporting

      Breast Cancer Canada

      Breast Cancer Canada provides funding for researchers in cancer centers, universities and laboratories across the country. It receives no government funding, all the research is driven through the generosity of donors.

      NBCF Australia

      The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organization funding world-class
      breast cancer research towards the vision of Zero Deaths from breast
      cancer.

      Knitted Knockers

      Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prostheses for women who have had breast cancer and undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy. Volunteer knitters provide these free to breast cancer survivors.

      Tassie Boobs

      Tassie Boobs for Breast Cancer rallies Aussie knitters and crocheters to hand-make natural breast prosthetics for cancer survivors who've undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy.

      For Donors

      Your Questions Answered

      Every daily $5+ donation to Breast Cancer Canada on our fundraiser page October 21-28 counts as an entry into the following day's raffle prize draw. Thread & Maple and The Grocery Girls will each select one daily winner from all of the previous day's donors. All donors who contribute throughout the week are entered into the grand prize drawings. You can also enter the Aussie raffles by donating via Karina's NBCF Australia fundraiser page.

      Knit for the Girls Bundles will go on sale here in our shop, as well as at grocerygirlsknit.com and louieandlolayarns.com.au October 28th at noon EDT/AEDT. Quantities are limited**

      If you're making some knockers, click here to join our Knitted Knockers Make-Along for a chance to win awesome prizes. Participation in the KAL is totally up to you, you can still knock out some knockers! We put together Knitted Knockers Kits that have everything you need to make them. You can also source your own materials, just be sure to read through the Knitted Knockers guidelines, as they'll only accept knockers made from a list of pre-approved yarns.

      This is a team effort to raise as much as possible for breast cancer research--no matter where you donate. Donations in the Aussie NBCF fundraiser will gain you entries into the Aussie raffle prize drawings and donations to the BCC fundraiser will gain you entries into the North American prize drawings. Regardless of where you live, you can contribute to both.
