Welcome to the Woodworkers Fighting Cancer charity page!

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page! We are woodworkers united in the fight against cancer. Our goal for 2017 is to raise $15,000 to support cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. With your help, we can reach that goal. Thank you for your support! - Marc & Nicole

How You Can Help:
You can help by either donating directly or by participating in this year's Charity Build. On October 2nd we will release an instructional video and free plan showing you how to build this years project: Memory Fram. You can download the plans on the main website at woodworkersfightingcancer.com. All you have to do is build the project and either send us a photo or video by October 31st, 2017 or upload your finished project to the Giddy app! We will donate $1 to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for each picture we receive (one per person, please) and $5 for every video. If you upload your photo to the Giddy app, they will match our $1 donation! We also have many corporate sponsors who are donating $1 per submission.

Our Accomplishments & History:
In 2010 I became friends with fellow woodworker Duane Moore who was suffering from pancreatic cancer. Nicole and I made a special trip out to Ohio to give Duane some one-on-one woodworking instruction and it was a life-changing experience for me. Inspired by Duane, I decided it was time for The Wood Whisperer to get involved in a charity and what better charity than the fight against cancer! Woodworkers Fighting Cancer was born out of a desire to rally the online woodworking community around a common cause that affects all of us in some way. I want woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike to be inspired by what our woodworking community is doing and perhaps even join us in the fight! Duane has since passed away and he will be missed. Without him, Woodworkers Fighting Cancer would never have come to fruition.

2010 - The Wood Whisperer Guild managed to raise nearly $10,000 for the American Cancer Society during one of our Guild Builds. The goal was to build a Shaker Table, and I personally donated $5 for every table made. 67 tables were completed and thanks to 158 contributors and numerous corporate sponsors, we raised over $9000! The first video below was our original announcement and the second is our celebration of the accomplishment.

2011 - $10,000 raised for LiveStrong. The goal this year was to build a rocking horse from a free plan provided by our friends at WOOD Magazine. 120 rocking horses were completed by the community and thanks to the numerous corporate sponsors matching our $1 for every rocking horse made (+ 5% of every new guild membership) & individual donations we raised almost $10,000!

2012 - $4600 raised for LiveStrong via a charity auction. I sold off a bunch of unused tools and donated 100% of the proceeds (no project built)

2013 - $14,086.00 raised for CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization that provides free, professional support services to anyone affected by cancer: people with cancer, caregivers, children, loved ones and the bereaved. The build project was an Artist Easel

2014 - $16,877.00 raised for Cancer Research Institute, the world's only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancers. The build project was a toy chest.

2015 - $21,803.00 raised for Cancer Research Institute, the world's only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancers. The build project was a kids table and chairs

2016 - $18,157.00 raised for the Jessie Rees Foundation, an organization whose mission is to help encourage kids fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up! The build project was a Castle Bookcase
Dana-Farber provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults and is home to groundbreaking cancer discoveries. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to advance Dana-Farber's mission.
Thank you for supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund's mission to conquer cancer. All gifts to this Giving Page will support the lifesaving work being done every day at Dana-Farber.
