Give HOPE This Holiday Season

Posted By
The Purple Community store is the perfect place to begin or wrap up your holiday shopping!

From winter hats to Hops for Hope shirts, there is something for the entire family. When you shop the Purple Community online store, you’re giving a gift that spreads HOPE in your community and I’m not just talking about the creative hope design.

Proceeds from the sales of all merchandise on our store benefit the research happening at Van Andel Institute. Your cozy purple beanie keeps you warm during the frigid Michigan winter and it also has the power to take research to the next level. Every single dollar that comes to Van Andel Institute is meaningful because 100% of the money goes directly to our labs.

We have had several of our researchers express how difficult it can be to obtain government funding. The research world is competitive and it has become challenging to fund the base level research that is necessary to even apply for government grants.

That’s where Purple Community comes in. Our $15.00 beanie may seem small but if you and your neighbor and their neighbor buy one that can make a world of difference – that’s 100% HOPE.

Why not give a gift this year that REALLY means something, and give HOPE to thousands of families around the world living with cancer and Parkinson’s disease?
