Well&Truly Magnificent: CoppaFeel!
We’re proud to be a brand that’s founded and run by two hard-working mums. From the very start, magnificent women have been part of the Well&Truly DNA. Throughout our journey, we’ve collected a list of inspirational friends whose empowering stories have encouraged us to do our best without trying to be "perfect".
We’ve set out to support the magnificent women, businesses and charities who we think deserve to be celebrated. So, whether you’re in need of a little Monday motivation or you’d like a reminder of the good in the world, we hope you’ll enjoy some of the Well&Truly Magnificent stories that we share!
This month, our Well&Truly Magnificent title goes to a fantastic organisation and event that we’ll be supporting with Well&Truly goodies in a couple of week’s time!
CoppaFeel! is a charity whose mission is to give everyone the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer. Their focus is on educating young people on the importance of checking their boobs and pecs for signs of breast cancer early on, as well as empowering them with the tools and knowledge for how to check.
CoppaFeel! came into existence in 2009 after the Founder, Kristin Hallenga, was diagnosed with an incurable form of breast cancer at just 23 years old. After her diagnosis, Kris quickly realised that there was very little awareness or available information that focussed on breast cancer in young people. So she set out to change this by sharing her story and the stories of other “Boobettes” who have dealt with the disease before the age of 35.
Alongside their work in schools, universities and workplaces, the CoppaFeel! team host their own exclusive festival at the House of Vans in London every year. Festifeel is an amazing event filled with music, comedy, interactive workshops and delicious food! Feeder are the headline act this year and the awesome line-up includes sets from Bombay Bicycle Club and the utterly hilarious Sara Pascoe.
We’re delighted to be sending our snacks to FestiFeel this year. The festival raises money and awareness for the cause, so it’s a Well&Truly excellent event in all ways possible and we wish Kris and team the best of luck!
Festifeel will be hosted at House of Vans on Saturday 12th October 2019. For more information about CoppaFeel! and Festifeel, visit their website: https://coppafeel.org/
