This October marks the seventh year we’ve partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada to help stomp out breast cancer. These charitable giving programs support research and help save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education, and by providing funding for free mammograms for women in need.
During the entire month of October, we donate 10% of the purchase price from the items in our Breast Cancer Awareness Collection to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in the U.S., and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada in Canada. This very special product collection features fruit bouquets and dipped fruit boxes with pink chocolate, like the Awareness Celebration® arrangement, Breast Cancer Awareness Bouquet®, Heels for Healing Bouquet™ and box of one dozen Pink Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. Through this collection and our partnership, we were able to donate over $28,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada last year.
As part of our continued commitment to Breast Cancer Awareness, on Sunday, October 14th, 2012, employees from the Edible Arrangements® corporate office also participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of New Haven, CT. We exceeded our fundraising goal for event, and enjoyed brisk walk on a beautiful fall day in support of a great cause!
