Cancer is one thing that has impacted the lives of almost everyone. Whether you’ve fought a personal battle with it or witnessed a loved one undergo this fight, it’s not something that is ever welcome, and countless people are now joining together to raise money, increase awareness, and do anything possible to give this disease less power.
Well, now the chimney sweep world has joined the game, too! There are many members of the sweep community that have a passion for fighting back against cancer, which is how the non-profit Sweep Away Cancer has come into existence. Learn more about how you can join the cause and make an impact by reading below!
Working Together For The Fight
One of the best parts about this organization is seeing competitors come together for something greater. Not all industries can join hands with the competition for anything, so we’re extremely proud to see so many chimney companies from all different areas helping with this cause. It’s a unique and amazing thing!
We’re an industry that hires people who have a passion for making others safer. We all obviously care about decreasing the risk of house fires, gas leaks, and more in homes all throughout the country, and now we have a way to help out even more people!

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Many are bracing themselves for the fall season that is fast approaching. Soon enough, school will start again, temperatures will drop, and people will start making plans for the upcoming holidays. But even before we start carving into Thanksgiving turkeys or wrapping up countless Christmas gifts, there’s something big to be prepared for: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Come October, we’re certain you’ll see countless fundraisers available in many stores and restaurants, all giving you the opportunity to give back to this cause. Well, we’re proud to be a part of this, as well! Sweep Away Cancer has various ways for you to join the fight and help make a contribution to those currently struggling. Here are some options:
- Buy pink shirts and koozies. Have staff and customers join the fight by sporting support shirts (available in different styles) or buy a bunch of koozies to give out and spread awareness.
- Encourage others to donate. Every little bit counts! Even a few dollars here and there makes a difference in the overall sum we raise, so ask friends, neighbors, customers, and more if they’d like to help us out in our mission.
- Consider donating part of your profits. We hear of lots of companies donating a certain percentage of profits to breast cancer throughout the month of October. This is a great way to promote business, and you can let your customers know that their money is going to a great cause. It’s a win-win all around!
There’s no time to lose, so feel free to get in touch with us with any questions, concerns, or comments. We’d love to hear from you!
