Our Corporate Partners Make an Impact
Every October, companies around the country join Living Beyond Breast Cancer to raise awareness and fundraise for our national programming. Their support is vital, and we love hearing from people who found us through one of our corporate partners. As we move into Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2018, we want to thank some of our supporters for their contributions to LBBC and the people we serve.
Chico’s FAS, Inc. has been a strong supporter of LBBC for over 10 years. As Chico’s FAS focused its charitable giving to organizations committed to women’s empowerment, health and well-being in 2017, it has continued to support LBBC and help our mission to ensure no one has to face a breast cancer diagnosis uninformed or alone.
“Chico’s FAS and our brands — Chico’s, White House Black Market and Soma, have a vision of empowering women at every stage of life’s journey. For everyone affected by breast cancer, Living Beyond Breast Cancer is the best resource we know, providing people with trusted information and a community of support,” says Julie Lorigan, vice president of investor relations, public relations and corporate communications for Chico’s FAS, Inc.
“We are proud to be LBBC’s largest corporate partner, helping to raise nearly $8 million since 2004. We look forward to continuing to build awareness and help raise the critical funds needed so that no one feels alone or without resources.”
This October, Chico’s will offer four products benefiting LBBC— an umbrella, a T-shirt, a pajama set, and a scarf — up to $250,000. White House Black Market will be selling their limited-edition Butterfly tee to benefit LBBC, up to $212,000, and Soma will donate $5 for every certified bra fit, up to $125,000. We encourage you to stop into any of their stores during October to shop these products, get a bra fitting, and thank them for their support of Living Beyond Breast Cancer. You can also find all the products at chicosfas-cares.com or their brand websites: chicos.com, whbm.com or soma.com.
Tara at Home
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tara at Home, an in-home direct sales company that sells stoneware products, will donate 5 percent of their net proceeds on product sales, with a minimum donation of $5,000. In addition, the company will donate $5 for each Cute Couple All a Flutter Pink Mug bundle sold.
Joy Gathers, director of marketing for Tara at Home, says, “It just makes sense for Tara at Home to continue their support. All of us in some way have been touched by breast cancer, whether it is a sister, a mother, [a] grandmother or a friend who has been diagnosed. As a company we are always thinking about how we can give back, so we at Tara at Home are honored to announce our partnership with LBBC.”
Tara at Home has sales associates around the country letting their customers know about LBBC’s programs and services to help make sure women know where to turn after a breast cancer diagnosis. Find the mug set and other products at taraathome.com.
Dr.’s Remedy Enriched Nail Care
Dr.’s Remedy, a nail care and nail polish company, will continue their support of LBBC this fall for the eighth year. They have selected three pink shades of their enriched nail polish — Poised Pink Champagne, Hopeful Hot Pink and Playful Pink — along with their new Caress Anti-Fungal Cuticle Oil as the products for this fall’s campaign. They will donate 15 percent of retail sales of these products during the month of October.
“Breast cancer affects so many people in the world, including many Dr.’s Remedy customers. It is for this reason we have aimed to be supportive of the work that LBBC is doing to help those living with the challenges associated with breast cancer,” says Rachel Bacheler, managing director at Dr.’s Remedy. “Their strong efforts to create a compassionate community and beyond is an inspiration. We are proud to [have] associated our enriched nail-care brand with this important organization for the past 8 years.”
In 2005 two women diagnosed with breast cancer, Rachel Levin Troxell and Robin Miller, founded LympheDIVAs, a compression garment company. Both women were living with lymphedema, swelling caused by a build-up of lymph fluid that can be managed with a compression sleeve. Both women were frustrated by the lack of sleeve options. Together they designed a more elegant and comfortable compression sleeve.
Rachel passed away from metastatic breast cancer in 2008 but her mission continued. Her parents and her brother Josh stepped in “to continue LympheDIVAs to provide products for the benefit of breast cancer survivors with lymphedema everywhere.”
Over the last 10 years, LympheDIVAs has created many custom designs to benefit LBBC. LympheDIVAs’ Yogi design is especially unique because of Rachel’s passion for practicing yoga and the relief it brought her from lymphedema. With each Yogi Sleeve or Glove sold LympheDIVAs will donate $10 to LBBC. With each Yogi Gauntlet sold LympheDIVAs will donate $5 to LBBC.
