I shaved my hair and dyed it pink to spark a conversation reminding women to feel their boobs regularly! You can check out a video of my partner and I touring Sydney to remind women to feel their boobs in unexpected places! It’s pretty hilarious, check it out here 😉
We all know someone who’s been affected by cancer. There are thousands of non-profits out there selling pink ribbons and products during the month of October. Not everything with a pink ribbon is supporting research for a cure, says Gayle Sulik, author of Pink Ribbon Blues: How Breast Cancer Culture Undermines Women’s Health. Some of these products give no proceeds to cancer charities, but simply “raise awareness.”
Charity Navigator has identified five breast cancer charities where donations directly fund prevention research, education, and patient support.
These organizations have high levels of accountability, have successfully sustained their programs over time, and spend a high percentage of their revenue on programs and services rather than administrative or fundraising costs. – MONEY ‘How to Make the Biggest Impact With Your Breast Cancer Donations‘
After considering the list I’ve decided to support prevention research by donating 50% of the profits from my original artwork sold this month to Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.
