|"Canes for a Cure" from Top and Derby|
My friends over at Top and Derby have done it again. They’ve gone ahead and made another gorgeous, design inspired cane. This one is truly special because it is a limited edition Chatfield cane featuring the color of Multiple Sclerosis – Pantone 158 (or, in other words, MS orange!), just in time for the kick off of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month that began today. Know what’s even better? These are “canes for a cure” as proceeds from each sale will be supporting research and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.
These guys are awesome. I just love ‘em.
Here’s the deal with the canes and the launch:
- Only 200 were made. The Limited Edition Chatfield cane features MS orange (Pantone 158) with custom packaging and laser engraving. The same comfort, stability, and design of the original Chatfield still applies!
- Buying the limited edition cane supports their “enable” mission promoting “canes for a cure” as the tag-line in an effort to raise money for MS awareness and research. Proceeds from the sale of each cane will go directly to the MS societies in Canada and the US. Top and Derby already issued a press release covering this (here) and have really stepped up in this awareness campaign.
Let’s come together to get the media talking about Multiple Sclerosis, educate the general public about MS, and raise some money for the cause. These are the main reasons that Top and Derby created the limited edition cane in MS orange. Many people who have purchased their lovely canes live with Multiple Sclerosis and this is their way of giving back, showing support, and spreading the love. As Matt, the Creative Director over at Top and Derby, says in the press release, “…launching the cane is the least we could do to support those who’ve supported us.” Hugs Matt!
The canes are now available on Top and Derby’s site (here). They include a sizing chart feature to ensure a proper fit. Measure twice, order once!
And, please share some photos if you end up buying one! I’d love to see you strutting around town with your new orange cane. I will do the same and will post images soon. Feel free to share photos on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram using the hashtag #canesforacure
Thanks and be well.
