The fact that teen girls are standing up and supporting those who are diagnosed with cancer is a tribute to the obligation these teens feel for all youg women.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Define My Style is honoring a teen by producing a version of a handbag she designed on the Define My Style community website to give to the woman in her life who has been affected by breast cancer and inspired her design. Additionally, throughout the year, Define My Style raises awareness of breast cancer in young women through an optional donation to Young Survival Coalition with each teen-designed handbag purchased through The DMS Marketplace™.
The Just Between Friends and Define My Style partnership supports empowering teen girl creativity and social consciousness. Just Between Friends will share these commitments with their community of PTA leaders and moms of school-age children.
“We’re hoping that the partnership with Define My Style and their commitment to Young Survival Coalition will help bring people’s attention to the fact that young women are also diagnosed with breast cancer,” states David Radin, Founder & President of Just Between Friends. “The fact that teen girls are standing up and supporting those who are diagnosed with cancer is a tribute to the obligation these teens feel for all young women.”
Define My Style is an online, style-centric community that empowers creative and opinionated teen girls by providing web-based tools and connections that engage their creativity, entrepreneurial aspirations and social consciousness.
"Awareness is never enough. We believe in an ecosystem for support, inspiration and meaningful connections and are proud of our partnership with Young Survival Coalition and Just Between Friends," said Kristine Sturgeon, Founder & CEO of Define My Style. "As a mother of 3 daughters and the niece of a 22-year breast cancer survivor, I applaud other organizations that join us in developing courageous and confident young ladies."
