The Pink Frontier Mittens are officially coming out of retirement, and they're bringing a friend with them (hint: Pink 4-Season Gloves)!
The Give'r Pink Collection is debuting this October in proud support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We will donate a portion of the proceeds to The Breasties, the first all-inclusive nonprofit organization that creates community for those impacted by breast and gynecologic cancers.
“Choosing to Give’r comes in many forms,” says Bubba Albrecht, CEO of Give’r. “We are fired up to be working with The Breasties to support Breast Cancer Awareness with the release of these pink gloves.”
The Breasties is the first all-inclusive nonprofit organization that creates community for survivors, previvors, stage 4 thrivers, and caregivers impacted by breast and gynecologic cancers. They're on a mission to support and improve the experiences of the cancer community through peer-to-peer connection, resources, and advocacy.
In 2021, the Pink Frontier Mittens were a huge hit amongst the Give'r community, quickly selling out and helping to raise $12,000 for breast cancer awareness.
Pink 4-Season Gloves, Frontier Mittens, matching wrist leashes and other limited edition pink products will be released October 10, 2023. SHOP NOW!

Read the story behind the "worst club with the best members" below.
Our story began five years ago when a group of five individuals each impacted by breast or gynecologic cancer were struggling to find support. Individually, we had each grown disappointed by the existing support spaces. They weren't welcoming and they often divided us based on our diagnoses, ages, stages, and backgrounds.
Why would a survivor want to connect with a previvor? Well it turns out that Allie, diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at age 28, was preparing for her double mastectomy and stumbled upon Paige's Instagram post sharing recovery tips following her preventative mastectomy at age 24.
This is just one of the many ways that our lives were forever changed when social media brought us together. It gave us the vision of creating an inclusive space for all that celebrates our intersections. The space that we wish we each had when diagnosed — a space that welcomes survivors, previvors, stage 4 thrivers, and caregivers.
When the first retreat brought together 25 people across all diagnoses, we returned to hundreds of messages asking about the next one. After hosting a dozen more retreats, we learned that there were still hundreds of unserved community members and Camp Breastie (a mega retreat) was born. We like to say that we've been playing catch up with the community ever since. The breast and gynecologic cancer community will always be our North Star.
