Fighting childhood cancer through recycling

DonateStart a fundraiser

Banco de Tapitas began as a movement of young Mexicans, students and professionals, with the intention of Supporting the Fight Against Childhood Cancer through Recycling. Banco de Tapitas seeks to provide comprehensive support to more than 1,000 children and young people in Mexico who have been diagnosed with cancer through recycling campaigns nationwide. Under the motto "If life gives you caps, don't throw them away!", in April 2016 we launched our first campaign on Facebook, which reached more than 2.5 million views worldwide, this being the moment to promotion of this project. Throughout its history, Banco de Tapitas has managed to serve more than 1,000 patients directly and just over 2,200 indirectly through its allies, achieving recognition from the Ministry of Well-being and the Líderes del Bajío program in the social sector. The goal for this year is to deliver more than 6 million pesos in support to our patients financed by recycling programs, deliver more than 200 oncological wigs, operate 4 shelters and deliver 1 state-of-the-art device to hospitals and oncological areas most in need in our country. We will also begin formal operations in the United States.
