One of the most exciting and rewarding things about being part of the direct selling industry is the collaborative efforts of companies as well as independent representatives to come together for the greater good. As we enter into another Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we can certainly recognize the efforts of some direct selling companies who take the extra step in supporting the fight against breast cancer.
Two great examples are Essential Bodywear and Stella & Dot.
Essential Bodywear is supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donating $2 to the Pink Daisy Project for every “Jacqueline” wire-free bra sold in October. The donation will be doubled if the goal of 2,000 bras sold is reached. The Pink Daisy Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women facing the hardship of breast cancer treatment by providing housecleaning help, gift cards for necessities such as groceries and gas, assistance with prescription drug costs and more.
Stella & Dot recently launched a capsule collection of signature jewelry and accessories to celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For each piece purchased during the month of October, all net proceeds will benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission to raise funds for women’s cancer research and awareness of the importance of early detection.
Other direct sellers who support the cause include Avon, Mary Kay, The Pampered Chef, Scentsy, Stampin’ Up! and many more.
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease and provide greater access to services.
