Think Pink with The Pink Ribbon Foundation: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities. They relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or who have been affected by breast cancer or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment. The foundation has little infrastructure, this insures that most of the funds raised go directly to where they’re needed, the Charities themselves.
Every year the month of October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This month gives us the opportunity to increase awareness about breast cancer. How individually you can help, support and donate because together we’re stronger!
Here are some of the ways you can help and bag yourself some really fantastic items knowing part of the proceeds go to were it is needed: to help support those affected by Breast Cancer.
