Since our launch in 2015, the intention of OC has been to bring ostomates into the media and make a difference in people’s lives. Initiating positive change and giving back are two principles we work hard to achieve every day.
This is simply a “pay-it-forward” initiative.
In 2017, we started Kindred Box along with the help of non-profit organizations, businesses, individuals, and foundations who support OC. Together we're raising money to help ostomates because every day in the United States someone goes without ostomy supplies.
The mission started with a question: How can we help people who cannot afford ostomy supplies? The answer came loud and clear: Collect ostomy supply donations and them to ostomates who need help — without conditions. Making this connection is very important to our mission.
It's all part of our commitment to pay-it-forward.
Kindred Box would not exist if it weren’t for dozens of generous people who selflessly gave their own ostomy supplies to help others. Each and every person who made a donation wanted nothing in return, except to make a meaningful difference in someone's life.
Your gift today makes a difference. These funds will be designated to address the ongoing crisis of people in America living with an ostomy who cannot afford supplies. We won't waste a minute thinking about all the good we can do to help ostomates. Because together, we are the solution.
