Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation
This week we’re featuring the Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation, a New Jersey based 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to fundraising for men, women and their families in need of financial support and sustainability after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. The Tutu Project was founded in 2012, by Bob and Linda Carey, after Linda endured her own personal battle with breast cancer. In light of his wife’s diagnosis, Bob, a professional photographer decided to take humorous and unique self-portraits wearing only a tutu. These images originally only for Linda, soon were shared with others battling cancer and eventually became published as a book, growing this project into printed images for sale, shop to support items and other projects and initiatives supporting their mission.
Casting for Recovery is a proud 2020 Tutu grant recipient as the Tutu Project of the Carey Foundation provides partnership opportunities with other non-profits sharing a similar vision, empowering the breast cancer community and doing good in the world. This grant will be directly applied to serving female breast cancer survivors at our 2020 retreats.
