In America alone, every 2 and a half minutes someone is diagnosed with breast cancer, while every 12 minutes someone loses their battle against this terrible disease. And it’s not just women that are affected. Estimates show that more than 200,000 women and 1,700 men will develop breast cancer this year, and it is the number one cancer killer of women between the ages of 15 and 54. Brides Against Breast Cancer is a wonderful organization that makes dreams come true to these suffering from this disease and their families.
FiftyFlowers is proud to announce, that with the help of our Facebook fans that used the discount code on orders in Oct. and Nov., that we were able to donate $1,000 to BABC! But there are more ways to help! BABC has an amazing program where brides can donate their gowns and help make a woman’s dream come true! So don’t trash your dress! Donate it to a great cause and know that you are giving a very special gift and making someone’s dream a reality. Other ways to help include making a donation, volunteering, or having a pink envelope bridal shower or wedding reception, where guests can make a donation on behalf of your event! Remember, every little bit counts, even a dollar from each of your guests could make a wish come true!
Thank you again to everyone that helped us make this important donation! Visit the Brides Against Breast Cancer website for more information.
