Your fight inspires us.
Our team. Our families. Our puzzlers, maybe even you have been directly affected by breast cancer. How you fight and how you live are stories that inspire us. It humbles us to learn how our puzzles have brought joy and connection during stressful times.
“I’m 34 years old and recently moved back in with my mom who is fighting breast cancer. Puzzles are our chance to open up to one another about our feelings, hopes, and dreams. Therapists would have you lay on a couch and stare off into the ceiling. Puzzles give us that same effect. It’s the act of being able to say out loud your true thoughts without having to stare right at the person. Puzzles are our therapy. For my mom and I, when we’re done putting the pieces together, we’re able to stare at a beautiful photo and know that inside we’ve accomplished so much more.” - Becky
We want to give more. Here is the plan:
For all of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), Springbok is donating a portion of the proceeds from every Pink Picks item purchased on our website to the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation.
If pink is not your color, there is another option to show your support: add a donation of $1, $5, or $10 to your cart. Springbok is happy to match a portion of donations made through our site and is committed to matching up to $5,000.00.
Funding the cure
All contributions are donated to the Self-Seeding Theory research of Dr. Larry Norton and his colleagues through the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). “This research focuses on improving the understanding of not only breast cancer but also other cancers; thereby helping to improve and understand how to better manage and treat these diseases,” states CBCF.
Puzzles for the cause
Pink Picks offers an assortment of jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, and more with a portion of proceeds from category items being donated to the CBCF. In years prior Springbok Puzzles released two commemorative puzzles directly created for the purpose of funding research for breast cancer.
Pearls & Pumps! (right) was designed by Springbok for the MetaCancer Foundation in memory of Elizabeth Anne Prostic. Elizabeth was a 31-year old wife and mother who passed away from metastatic breast cancer on March 31, 2005. Lizzie loved her red shoes and her pearls. In this joyful puzzle, we celebrate and honor a beautiful life. The shoes in this puzzle were Lizzie’s favorites.
After years in production, Pearls & Pumps! was discontinued, and Symbols of Strength (left) was introduced to our puzzle gallery in 2019.
