Samesyn met Cuppa For CANSA

Engelse Persverklaring

KANSA hou jaarliks die gewilde Cuppa For CANSA (Cuppa)-veldtog regoor Suid-Afrika. Die doel is om gesellig te verkeer en tyd met familie, vriende of kollegas by ’n Cuppa-geleentheid te spandeer en terselfdertyd geld vir KANSA in te samel om sodoende hul sorg en ondersteuningsdienste voort te sit vir diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word. Deelnemers kan self so ’n Cuppa-geleentheid hou of dit as ’n gas bywoon.

#CuppaForCANSA, #CANSACares, #CANSACareAndSupport, #TimeToTakeHeartTogether, #FiveRosesSA

Die tema vir vanjaar se Cuppa is ‘Spandeer Saam Hartstyd’ of ‘Time To Take Heart Together’. KANSA se Nasionale Volhoubaarheidsbestuurder Anita Snyders verduidelik, “Na twee jaar van virtuele Cuppa-geleenthede is ons baie opgewonde om met geliefdes, vriende en kollegas bymekaar te kom. Dis nie net om tyd saam te spandeer nie, maar ook om ons harte te wys deur die geveg teen kanker te ondersteun.”

Die tema het ook ’n dieper betekenis wat die mag van samesyn verteenwoordig. “Kanker is nie ’n siekte wat mens alleen kan beveg nie, en kankerpasiënte (Oorwinnaars), geliefdes en versorgers benodig ons ondersteuning en aanmoediging,” voeg Snyders by.

“KANSA nooi jou uit om jou eie Cuppa-geleentheid te hou. Die eerste stap is om op die Cuppa for CANSA-webwerf as gasheer of -vrou te registreer of ’n e-pos aan adewitt@cansa.org.za te stuur – registrasie is oop vir individue en besighede. ’n KANSA personeelvennoot sal jou kontak om jou geleentheid se besonderhede soos die datum en plek te bespreek, asook of jy wil reël dat ’n kankeroorwinnaar of bekende gasspreker daar optree. Die personeellid sal jou ook met uitnodigings en die relevante bemarkingsmateriale help,” voeg Snyders by.

Gashere en -vroue kan geleenthede hou onder vanjaar se tema ‘Spandeer Saam Hartstyd’ of ‘Time to Take Heart Together’ en kan KANSA se aanlyn ondersteuningsgroepe en hulpbronne deel om diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word te bemoedig. KANSA is daartoe verbind om diegene wat kanker in die gesig staar van inligting te voorsien, asook daaglikse hulp en die emosionele ondersteuning wat hulle in die gemeenskappe waar hulle woon benodig. KANSA se doel is om te verseker dat kankeroorwinnaars en hul geliefdes nie kanker alleen in die gesig staar nie; dit is hier om hulle deur elke stap van die siekte te ondersteun.

Gashere en -vroue kan ook hulle eie temas kies, of Cuppa gebruik om ’n spesiale dag te vier deur byvoorbeeld ’n ‘Verjaardag-Cuppa’ of ‘Vrouedag Cuppa’ te hou. Die gashere en -vroue kan self besluit hoe hulle dekor, drankies en peuselhappies by die tema aansluit.

KANSA wil vir Five Roses as die amptelike teeborg vir Cuppa for CANSA bedank – hulle borg weereens tee vir elke geleentheid, skep bewusmaking deur middel van hul sosiale media platforms en borg pryse vir vanjaar se Gasvrou-kompetisie.

Beperkte uitgawe Cuppa for CANSA handelsware is te koop beskikbaar en maak die ideale geskenk vir Cuppa-gaste. Die 2022-Cuppa bekers is in vier pragtige kleure, verbind aan die tema, en kos R60 elk. Die pragtige hoofbedekkings kos R55 elk.

Cuppa gashere en -vroue kwalifiseer om vir die nasionale Cuppa for CANSA kompetisie in te skryf en staan die kans om fantastiese pryse te wen insluitend Body Kind sportbra’s geborg deur bounti, asook airfryers  Die gasheer of -vrou wat die meeste fondse insamel wen ook ’n spesiale airfryer.

Snyders sluit af, “Dis geen wonder dat Cuppa For CANSA een van die hoogtepunte op die KANSA-kalender is nie. Die geleentheid bring mense op ’n prettige manier saam en gee aan hulle die geleentheid om ander te inspireer en ’n verskil te maak in die lewens van diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word deur ons sorg- en ondersteuningsdienste. Ons hoop dat jy vanjaar jou plaaslike Cuppa-geleenthede sal bywoon.”

Together Again with Cuppa For CANSA

Together Again with Cuppa For CANSA

Afrikaans  Media Release

27 July 2022 – Every year, CANSA runs the ever popular Cuppa For CANSA (Cuppa) campaign, across South Africa. The aim is to socialise and have fun with family, friends or colleagues at a Cuppa event while raising funds for CANSA to continue delivering its care and support programmes to those affected by cancer. Participants may either host a Cuppa event or attend as a guest.

#CuppaForCANSA #CANSACares #CANSACareAndSupport #TimeToTakeHeartTogether #FiveRosesSA

The theme for this year’s Cuppa is ‘Time To Take Heart Together’. CANSA’s National Sustainability Manager, Anita Snyders, explains, “After two years of hosting virtual Cuppa events, we’re so excited to come together with loved ones, friends, and colleagues, not only to spend time with one another, but also to show our hearts by supporting the fight against cancer.”

The theme also has a deeper meaning representing the importance of the power of togetherness. “Cancer is not a disease to be fought alone, and cancer patients (Survivors), loved ones and caregivers need our support and encouragement,” Snyders added.

“CANSA invites you to host your own Cuppa event. The first step is to register as a host, on the Cuppa For CANSA website or email adewitt@cansa.org.za – registration is open to individuals as well as Corporates. A regional CANSA staff partner will contact you to discuss details about your event such as the date and venue, if you would like to arrange a cancer survivor or celebrity guest speaker, as well as help you with invitations and relevant marketing materials,” Snyders continues.

Hostesses can host events under this year’s theme ‘Time to Take Heart Together’ and share CANSA’s online support groups and resources to encourage those affected by cancer. CANSA is committed to connecting people facing cancer with information, day-to-day help as well as emotional support they need in the communities where they live. CANSA’s aim is to ensure that cancer Survivors and their loved ones do not have to face cancer alone; it’s here to support them through every step of their cancer journey.

Alternately, hostesses can choose their own theme, or even use Cuppa to mark a special day by hosting a ‘Birthday Cuppa’ or ‘Women’s Day Cuppa’. It is up to the hosts, to tie in aspects such as décor, beverages, and snacks with the theme.

CANSA is thankful to Five Roses, who is the official Cuppa For CANSA tea partner and have come on board once again by sponsoring tea for each event, raising awareness through their social media platforms and sponsoring gifts for this year’s Hostess challenge.

Limited edition, Cuppa For CANSA, merchandise is available to purchase and make the ideal gift for Cuppa guests. The 2022 Cuppa mugs come in four gorgeous colours, linked to the theme, and are R60 each while the beautiful Headwear is R55 each.

Cuppa hosts are eligible to enter the national Cuppa For CANSA competition to stand the chance of winning prizes that include sponsored Body Kind sports bras by bounti and air fryers.

Snyders concludes, “It’s easy to see why Cuppa For CANSA is one of the highlights on the CANSA calendar as this event brings people together in a fun way, giving them the opportunity to inspire and make a difference to those affected by cancer by enabling our care and support programmes. We hope you will support your local Cuppa event(s) this year.”

My Cuppa, My Storie

My Cuppa, My Storie

English Media Release

25 Junie 2019 – Die ‘Cuppa For CANSA’ seisoen in 2019 strek vanaf Junie tot Oktober en KANSA nooi mense uit om ‘n Cuppa geleentheid of onthaal aan te bied. Dit bied vir kankeroorwinnaars en versorgers ‘n platform om hulle stories met ander te deel en om ‘Hoop’ te gee aan ander wat deur kanker geraak is. Die veldtog moedig almal aan om ‘n koppie van hul gunsteling drankie te drink ter ondersteuning van ‘n goeie doel om sodoende ‘n donasie aan KANSA te kan skenk.

Maria Scholtz, voormalige KANSA se hoof van Volhoubaarheid, sê: “Ons tema vir 2019 is #MyCuppaMyStory. Dit skep ‘n platform en ‘n geleentheid vir kankeroorwinnaars (pasiënte) en versorgers om hul stories met ander te deel en om ander met “Hoop” te inspireer. Lees meer oor KANSA se ‘Global Heroes of Hope’. Hulle kry die geleentheid om te wys hoe ander mense wat met kanker gediagnoseer is teen kanker baklei het tydens hulle reis met die siekte. Ons erken ook die ondersteuning wat versorgers aan pasiënte bied wat met kanker gediagnoseer is. Gedurende ons Cuppa Veldtog poog ons dat die stemme van kankeroorwinnaars gehoor sal word en om hulle met ‘Hoop’ te inspireer.”

KANSA se doel is om gemeenskappe te motiveer om betrokke te raak deur te help om tydens ‘n CUPPA geleentheid fondse in te samel wat gebruik sal word vir die ondersteuning van kankerpasiënte en om programme beskikbaar te stel by KANSA SorgSentra landwyd. Dienste wat deur SorgSentra aangebied word sluit opvoeding, vroeë opsporing deur middel van siftingstoetse, berading, ondersteuningsgroepe, pruike, prosteses, verhuring van mediese toerusting, hulp met die versorging van wonde en stomaklinieke in.

“Mense wat CUPPA geleenthede wil aanbied kan by hul plaaslike of naaste KANSA SorgSentra registreer en pakkette vir gashere en –vroue ontvang. Hulle kan hulle kontakte nader en hulle uitnooi na die geleentheid. Nooi ‘n kankeroorwinnaar of versorger uit om hulle reis met kanker en hul stories met ander te kom deel. ‘n Gasheer kan ook ‘n ‘virtuele’ Cuppa aanbied en boodskappe van hoop en aanlyn donasies op KANSA se webwerf plaas. Spesiaal gemerkte Cuppa-bekers (R50) elk kan ook deur aanbieders van Cuppa funksies by SorgSentra gekoop word om verkoop te word as ‘n spesiale aandenking,” voeg Scholtz by.

My Cuppa My Story

My Cuppa My Story

Afrikaanse Media Vrystelling

25 June 2019 – It’s Cuppa For CANSA season from June to October 2019 and CANSA invites people to host an event, giving cancer Survivors and caregivers a platform to share their story and give ‘Hope’ to others affected by cancer. The campaign encourages all to enjoy a cup of their favourite beverage and support a great cause by giving a donation to CANSA.

Maria Scholtz, former CANSA’s Head of Sustainability, says “Our theme for 2019 is #MyCuppaMyStory, providing a platform for cancer Survivors (patients) and caregivers to share stories that can inspire Hope. Our CANSA ‘Global Heroes of Hope’ truly demonstrate that cancer Survivors have the power to save lives by sharing their story and demonstrating the many ways to fight back during a cancer journey. We also acknowledge the support that caregivers offer to those affected. During our Cuppa Campaign we aim to create a space for their voices to be heard, to inspire Hope.”

CANSA’s goal is to motivate the community to get involved and assist by hosting a Cuppa event and help raise funds which will be used to deliver support and care programmes at CANSA Care Centres country-wide. Services include education, early detection screening, counselling, support groups, wigs, prostheses, medical equipment hire, assistance with wound care and stoma clinics.

“Hosts can contact any local CANSA Care Centre nationally to register their event and get host packages and invite all their contacts to support their event. Invite a Survivor or caregiver to share their story and journey. Hosts can also host a ‘virtual’ Cuppa and send messages of hope and donate online on our website. Specially branded Cuppa mugs (R50) may also be purchased by hosts or the public at Care Centres, as a special keepsake,” Scholtz continues.

CANSA encourages hosts to share photos, ‘pledges’ and stories about Survivors and caregivers as part of Cuppa For CANSA. Use the hashtags #MyCuppaMyStory and #CuppaForCANSA and share on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Corporates should save the date 1 – 9 August 2019, when workplaces can host Cuppa events to celebrate cancer Survivors and caregivers to raise funds for CANSA.

Official tea sponsor (Five Roses) is again committed to supporting CANSA’s ongoing care and support programmes.
