What happens after you make your contribution?

  • Once we’ve processed your information—which may take up to a week—you’ll receive an email from Give a Crap Challenge with instructions for how to redeem a CraftShack e-gift card for your beer.


Why is screening so important? 

  • Screening is an important preventive measure to catch cancer early before it advances to an incurable stage. Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is useful among individuals who do not show symptoms. It can help detect polyps in the colon and rectum, which can develop into cancer if left untouched.


If you or a loved one is considering getting screened, here are a few things to consider:

  • March is colorectal cancer awareness month.  Get screened, it can save your life.
  • Colorectal cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death among men and women in the U.S., and regular testing is recommended for adults 45+.
  • 75M people should be regularly tested, ONLY 1/3 of them are - half of them are underserved and underinsured. 
  • Covid-19 has had a catastrophic effect on colorectal cancer screening and the impact of the pandemic will continue to evolve during 2021 and beyond. 
  • African Americans are at high risk, with incidence rates +20%, and death rates +40%.
  • Your risk of colorectal cancer can be greatly reduced through diet, exercise and other limiting or quitting certain habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol use.
  • The recent and tragic deaths of actors Chadwick Boseman, 43, and Natalie Desselle-Reid, 53, as a result of colorectal cancer illustrate the younger trend. 


Thank you for giving a crap—and helping the Colon Cancer Foundation achieve its vision of a world without colorectal cancer.
