Circle K and its customers contribute more than 29,000 euros to treatment of cancer patients

Circle K petrol stations sold yellow fund-raising coffee cups at the end of August and in September. Customers who chose a yellow cup contributed 10 cents to the treatment of cancer patients, to which Circle K added 10 cents of its own: 20 cents in total for each coffee drink sold.

The campaign involved more than a hundred thousand coffee cups, which sold out very fast. Circle K estimates that around 125,000 customers contributed by buying the fund-raising cups so that cancer patients would be granted hope and the chance to live.

As such, the coffee cup campaign alone raised nearly 26,000 euros in support of cancer patients.
However, Circle K customers have a chance to donate all year round, be it in cash or by card, by requesting to add a donation to their bill. In this way, over 3000 euros has already been collected in recent months.

Altogether, Circle K and its customers have donated more than 29,000 euros to the Cancer Treatment Foundation.
This amount will allow the foundation to help a number of people in their fight against cancer.
Since people took to the coffee cup campaign, Circle K plans to repeat it in the future.
 
Until then, anyone can support cancer patients at Circle K petrol stations in three ways:

A. By adding to the donation boxes next to the cash registers
B. By requesting to add a desired amountto their bill and paying by card
C. By purchasing the foundation's charitable reflectors for themselves, their family or as a gift for someone else (since wearing a reflector in the dark is required by law)
