Buy A Find Help a child
As an ongoing project, The Finds supports the Princess Máxima Centre in the Netherlands. This oncology clinic is dedicated to treating children with cancer, while optimizing their quality of life throughout. After one of the owners, Floor, had a personal encounter with leukemia - fortunately now all in the past - we decided that moving forward, 100% of the proceeds of some of our bracelets would go to the Princess Máxima Centre.
A word from co-founder Florence
My Journey Against Childhood Cancer
When I was five, I suddenly fell ill, and in the following days, I experienced increasingly troubling symptoms. My mother took me to the doctor, and blood had to be drawn. In the afternoon, we received a call. The diagnosis was cancer. It was a shock for all of us. I'll never forget the first night in the hospital; my dad stayed with me while my mother went home with my brother, just six weeks old at the time.
Thus began a long and challenging period. But thanks to the dedication of doctors and nurses, the love of those around me, my own determination, and a tremendous stroke of luck, I survived this terrible disease. The hospital stay was difficult, and I often felt afraid, but it also brought a sense of profound connection. It taught me how precious life is, and I feel blessed to have recovered. Today, healthy and happy, I want to give back to the children still fighting this terrible illness.
In 2020, my mother and I launched 'Buy a Find - Help a Child' as part of our jewelry brand, The Finds. This initiative is our way of supporting the Prinses Máxima Centrum, a fantastic clinic with the goal of 'curing every child with cancer, with optimal quality of life.' With our initiative, we donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the 'Lieve' bracelets to the Prinses Máxima Centrum, having already sold hundreds. The bracelet symbolizes unity and is crafted from 18k gold-plated circles.
