Breast Cancer Awareness
Breast Cancer is personal. About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in their lifetimes, and the number of people whose lives are affected grows exponentially when you look at the families and communities that are touched by the disease.
OUR GOAL: Bring awareness to early detection and raising money to fund research geared towards longer lives, better outcomes, and the ultimate goal of a cure.
HOW? Sharing and Donating—get involved:
TomboyX Donation Day:
On Wednesday, October 19, TomboyX is donating $5 for every single order placed on the site to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Breast Cancer Awareness: Fran's Story
Sharing stories and promoting visibility is how we make change. Our co-founder Fran offers the story of her battle with Breast Cancer, in honor of her friend Renee, and in celebration of those who have endured. She offers it to be part of the collection of stories that already exist, and that we're hoping to promote more of in the future, in order to bring more eyes to the need for early detection and funding research for a cure.
Donate Directly: Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Donate directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Their mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. 88% of donations go directly to research and 3% goes to awareness.
#TomboysDonate Awareness Project: All October
For every public post that has a #TomboysDonate hashtag during October, TomboyX will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Show us the way that you care, fight, love. We want to see your stories and share them with the world, whether it's the pink ribbon on your car, a snap of you and your friends at a Breast Cancer Walk, or something more personal from your life or that of a loved one.
How To Share:
- Pick your favorite social media platform out of Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook
- Share an image of your own personal story, that of a loved one, or you just being your badass Tomboy self
- #TomboysDonate and tag the TomboyX account (ensure your post/profile is public so we can see it!)
We'll share your stories through our account to continue bringing awareness to battle we still have ahead in Breast Cancer Research. Be on the lookout for our CEO's blog post on her experience and personal battle.
*TomboyX will donate up to $5,000 to Breast Cancer Research Foundation through our #TomboysDonate sharing awareness project.
