Think Before You Pink®, a project of Breast Cancer Action, was launched in 2002 in response to the growing concern about the overwhelming number of pink ribbon products and promotions on the market. The pink ribbon, often associated with breast cancer awareness, aims to raise awareness for the disease, but the trend has taken over and has become a marketing scheme for many companies.
At withinUs, we believe in supporting charitable foundations within our community, and this cause is near and dear to our hearts. On October 1, 2019 we are launching a promotion in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month. With this custom bundle builder promotion we aim to raise awareness for breast cancer, and TAKE ACTION.
withinUs will be donating 100% of net proceeds from the sales of our October custom bundles to support those undergoing breast cancer treatment. We believe in transparency and have answered some questions about the foundation we will be donating to, how the money is being used, and other companies that are helping support the cause alongside us.
Q: Does any money from this purchase go to support breast cancer programs? How much?
A: Yes. 100% of net proceeds from the sales of the withinUs custom bundles will be
donated to the Kelly Shires Foundation to support those undergoing breast cancer treatment. This promotion will be running for the entire month of October, and our team will be announcing the total donation during the week of November 4, 2019.
Q: What organization will the money be donated to, and what do they do with the donation funds?
A: The foundation we have chosen to donate to this year is the Kelly Shires Foundation. The trust was established to offer financial assistance to those recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer across Canada. This foundation helps those diagnosed with breast cancer pay for unforeseen costs associated with having this disease, costs that are not covered by public/private healthcare plans. This foundation provides assistance to breast cancer patients in these situations in order to help make their fight with cancer a little less challenging.
Some common areas the funds are used towards:
- transportation to treatments
- lodging expenses
- hospital parking cost
- household bills while under treatment
