Help us fight cancer.
- 20 / 09 / 2016
6 million lives. That number is still the single biggest reason to quit smoking.
Every year, that is how many people die from smoking related illnesses, how many families are being torn apart. Smoking is the world’s second leading cause of preventable death.
We have decided to try and do more to fight it.
We were four vaping enthusiasts who saw how e-cigarettes could help improve the lives of people who were hopelessly addicted to smoking. Hundreds of thousands of smokers have tried other methods of cessation and have been unsuccesful.
So far, more than 10000 people, who could not otherwise quit smoking, have put tobacco behind them forever thanks to vaping with DanSmoke. That makes us extremely happy and very proud. But there is so much more to do.
So we have started an online fundraiser to give money to Norway’s Cancer Union. Our goal is to reach 50000 NOK, and we have jump-started the fundraising efforts with 10% of that already.
We feel that it’s a responsibility of every vaping brand to participate in the fight to break cancer. That is the whole point of making en e-cigarette, isn’t it? We believe that e-cigarettes are the best cessation tool by far. It provides the gentlest transition away from smoking, it provides the widest range of options for a person who is trying to quit, and it is providing the best opprtunity to take even the smallest step on the road to quit. And as every ex-smoker will tell you; even the smallest steps are a huge victory.
But more than helping the people that don’t have cancer already, we should also help the people who already have it. And we believe that Norway’s Cancer Union is one of the best ways to accomplish this.
They do amazing work in informing cancer patients about their rights, advising everyone about types of cancer, how they affect you and how you risk contracting it, it keeps a close eye on research on curing the terrible disease, and it provides a wealth of information on what you can do, where you can go and who you can talk to, if you or someone you know is suffering from cancer and need support.
Every donation to our fundraiser to fight cancer is appreciated as the amazing gift it is. Here is a short summation of what you are actively helping us fight:
- 14000000 new cases of cancer every year.
- 8200000 cancer related deaths each year.
- An expected rise of both the above numbers by 70% in the next 2 decades.
- Tobacco causes 20% of all cancer deaths and 70% of lung cancer deaths.
We hope you will give what you can. Even visiting our fundraiser page and sharing it on social media is a great help.
