Paying Tribute To Caregivers With Caribou Coffee and Tribute.Co

Sharing is caring!

This post brought to you in a partnership with Caribou Coffee.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is something that affects so many people and I think most of us all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer or someone who has been affected by cancer. For the past 21 years, Caribou has supported Breast Cancer Awareness in memory of their original Roastmaster, Amy Erikson, who lost her battle with cancer in 1995. This year, Caribou Coffee is launching a community video project in partnership with to pay TRIBUTE and thank caregivers everywhere. For each video submitted on the #CaribouTribute page throughout October, Caribou will donate $5 to CancerCare as part of their overall $250,000 contribution to the national nonprofit organization.


Caribou is also donating 10% of Amy’s Blend coffee and merchandise sales throughout the month of October. Amy’s Blend coffee comes out every Fall in honor of Amy in two blends — the vibrant and sweet original blend and the fuller body Dark Roast. If you’re a Caribou Coffee fan than you’re probably familiar with their vibrant pink bags of Amy’s Blend that comes out every fall and have probably even tried it. They’re available for you to purchase now at your local Caribou Coffee shop.

I made a video on Tribute to thank caregivers because cancer has affected many people around me and caregivers are there to help along the way. They don’t always get the recognition or appreciation they deserve, so this is my way of letting them know I’m thankful for their dedication, compassion, and care that they give to so many. I want to encourage you to create a video and upload it to Tribute and thank a caregiver today. It’s easy to do and can be done in such a short amount of time. To make your own video visit the site, hit the red record/upload button, enter your name and email, and then upload your video.

Such a good cause. My sister was a caregiver to my Mom for many years. I'm so grateful that she was there for her as I lived out of town.

I love anything that supports a good cause. I call it "shopping for a cause". Plus, I LOVE my coffee.
