BAIT x Saucony CruelWorld 2: For the American Cancer Society
BAIT would like to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the upcoming CruelWorld 2 release will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Last week, we asked the public for suggestions on a cause to support with this release. We’d like to thank everyone for all of their great submissions, and encourage you to check out our previous posts covering a few of these charities. We ultimately decided on the American Cancer Society because it was one of the most suggested organizations, and the reasons given to us were very personal and touching. The cause also happens to hit home for the BAIT family. Continue reading for more information on the cause.The American Cancer Society is a nationwide organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. An estimated 2 out of every 3 people that are diagnosed with cancer survive at least 5 years, in part due to the American Cancer Society. ACS helps people stay well and get well by finding cures, raising awareness, and fighting back. To learn about ACH’s various programs, services, events, and accomplishments, visit cancer.org. You can also learn how to donate, volunteer, and participate in events like Relay for Life.
We will donate a portion of the BAIT x Saucony CruelWorld 2 proceeds to the American Cancer Society shortly after release date. In November, the first installment of the CruelWorld series helped raise $15,268 for A Place Called Home, a youth center in Los Angeles; we look forward to making a similar donation with this follow-up!
