You Can Make a Difference
BE APART OF PROMOTING BREAST CANCER AWARENESS
Wearing the shirts and hats made by Sweater Kittens helps you spread breast cancer awareness wherever you go. When strangers ask about the logo on your shirt, you can tell them proudly that you’re showing solidarity for people with breast cancer.
Our shirts are great for supporters and survivors alike.
The idea for Sweater Kittens was started by a group of breast cancer patients undergoing chemo. They passed the time by discussing some of the slang words that were not flattering for cancer patients, until Sweater Kittens! Some of the terms were: jugs, boobies, knockers, hooters, and ta-tas.
They arrived on the term “Sweater Kittens” and made a business out of the idea.
It just goes to show that cancer has nothing on creativity!

Why Should You Support Sweater Kittens?
A portion of our profits go toward funding breast cancer research. Supporting breast cancer research organizations in and around Minneapolis, Bloomington and Minnetonka, MN helps specialists learn more about the causes of and treatments for breast cancer.
We are partnered with Angel Foundation, an organization that holds programs for children whose parents have been diagnosed with cancer. A breast cancer diagnosis affects the whole family. We want kids to have the resources they need to process what’s happening and meet other families in similar situations.
