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.
In 2017, we started an ostomy supply donation charity group 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 ostomates in America who are struggling to afford ostomy supplies?
The answer came loud and clear: Collect as many donations as possible and get those supplies in the hands of people who need them most.
Many have excess products and others don't have any. Making this connection is very important to our mission. It's called Kindred Box. Kindred meaning alike, similar in kind, connected — as in, we are in this together!
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 contribution makes a difference. 100% of the funds will be designated to address the ongoing crisis of people in America living with an ostomy who cannot afford ostomy supplies.
We won't waste a minute thinking about all the good we can do to help. Together, we are the solution. Learn how you can support Kindred Box.
