Give The Gift Of Independence.
Wondering what to do with that old cane you no longer use in the closet? Is that drawer of used canes collecting dust and taking up space? Donate your old canes to the “You Cane Give” program. And turn that old cane into newfound independence for individuals in need.
We Need Your Help.
Let’s face it, we have it good in America. With the click of a button, we can order almost anything we need, including a cane. In countries like Mexico, China, India, and South Africa, people do not have access to the proper tools to empower independence and success.
Do not let your canes go to waste! “You Cane Give” allows you to help us give your used cane to a person far away who needs it!
