With both of our families touched by cancer, my business partner, Hannah, and I wanted to do something to make a difference.
Portland, ME (Vocus) September 8, 2010
Sea Bags, a leader in sustainable practices, launches its fourth annual Cure Campaign with their custom Pink Ribbon bag, made from recycled sails, presently only available from October 1st to December 31, 2010 to raise money for cancer research.
To do its part and honor Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Sea Bags will donate 50 percent of the proceeds from the sales of its small, medium and large Pink Ribbon bags, all made from recycled sails.
“We are proud to have raised over $48,000 in funds over the past three years from this campaign for cancer research. It is great to see how quickly our custom bags sell out. We’ve attracted buyers from across the globe to help the cause,” said Sea Bags Co-Owner and President Beth Shissler. “With both of our families touched by cancer, my business partner, Hannah, and I wanted to do something to make a difference.”
Funds raised from “sails” benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation, http://www.mainecancer.org and assist the organization in achieving its mission of funding cancer research, education and patient support programs.
