For every Blazin Shortstack sold, we will be donating a percentage of our profits to the foundation in which the color of the bottle corresponds with.
After working with several orginizations, we hand selected 6 that we believe will use our donations to further research and ultimatly find a cure. Below you will find more information about which color supports which disease, what the disease is, and the mission statement from the foundation that we will be supporting.
Blue - PTSD - Grow for Veterans

Orange - MS - National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Multiple Sclerosis- is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS.

Red - Lymphoma - Leukemia Research Foundation
Lymphoma- is cancer that begins with the infection-fighting cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. These cells are in the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and other parts of the body. When you have lymphoma, lymphocytes change and grow out of control. Every type of lymphoma grows at a different rate and responds differently to treatment.
Leukemia Research Foundation’s Mission: “The Leukemia Research Foundation is dedicated to conquering all blood cancers, including Lymphoma, by funding research into their causes and cures, and enriching the quality of life of those touched by these diseases.”
Green - Glaucoma - Glaucoma Research Foundation
Glaucoma- is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, which is vital to good vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. It can occur at any age but is more common in older adults.
Glaucoma Research Foundation’s Mission: “At Glaucoma Research Foundation, we work to prevent vision loss from glaucoma by investing in innovative research, education, and support with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.”
