The Tutu Project was created by Bob Carey and his wife Linda, launched as a Kickstarter campaign in 2012. The initial goal of the project was to raise funds in order to self-publish a book featuring his “Ballerina” series of self-portraits in a tutu. Two weeks after the project launched it went viral, attracting attention from around the world. Carey and his wife Linda, who is a breast cancer survivor, realized they could do more and established The Carey Foundation. The foundation is a 501c3, which directly assists families suffering from breast cancer with daily needs such as transportation to doctor appointments, childcare, lymphedema sleeves and wigs. The Tutu Project recently partnered with CancerCare, a nationally run non-profit to help distribute the funds and every $1,000 raised directly benefits five women. It’s making a real-world difference, an impact not always seen when funds are being raised for research.
