Charity of the Month: Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Breast cancer affects many of us. According to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes in the United States and in this month’s issue of Time Magazine, Siobhan O’Connor reports that “this year more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die of breast cancer.”

In light of this staggering statistic, and this disease resonates so deeply in every community, we are proud to partner with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for the month of October to help raise awareness and funds towards finding the cure.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the United States, and they are committed to bringing an end to cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.  They have funded over 8.5 million hours of research to date since their inception in 1993.

Whether it’s you, a family member, a friend, or a colleague that has been affected by this horrible disease, we can make a difference together to find the cure.

Join For Goodness Sake during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and shop with purpose with our select styles, which give 25% of the proceeds from each purchase to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
