We Reached 23 Million People!

We did it.

Thanks to your help, over 23 million people heard our message about the importance of getting screened for Colon Cancer. The Colon Cancer Alliance and Dollar Shave Club would like to thank everyone who helped spread awareness about early detection–and ultimately helping to save lives.

With National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month officially behind us, together we accomplished:

  • $10,000 donated to Colon Cancer Alliance, thanks to your retweets and purchases of One Wipe Charlies

  • 23 million+ people heard our message about the importance of getting screened

  • 1 Dollar Shave Club CEO with a clean colon

Just because March has ended doesn’t mean you should stop spreading the word. If you or someone you know is age 50 or older, or has a family history of Colon Cancer, talk to your doctor about getting screened. It could save your life.

Cheers to keeping your rear in the clear.
