San Marino, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2013
WhatSheBuys has teamed up with Wacoal to donate part of the proceeds to breast cancer research of all Wacoal bras purchased at the WhatSheBuys store or online in the month of October.
WhatSheBuys will donate $2 to the City of Hope for breast cancer research for every Wacoal bra purchased online at http://www.whatshebuys.com, by phone, or in their San Marino retail store. In conjunction, Wacoal will donate an additional $2 for each Wacoal Retro Chic Bra purchased in October to Susan G. Komen For the Cure. Purchases over $80 will receive a free Wacoal cosmetic bag or Wacoal tote bag.
According to NationalBreastCancer.org, 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will be diagnosed with Breast breast Cancer cancer in their lifetime. Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States alone. Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of death among women.
"One in eight women is a staggering statistic," said Cathy Kamimura, Chief Buyer at WhatSheBuys. "We will do anything we can to help raise money to support breast cancer research. We are pleased to be honored to participate with Wacoal for the fifth year running. This cause is very dear to us as we have a number of friends who are breast cancer survivors and funding for continued research is of the utmost importance," she concluded.
The fifth year that WhatSheBuys has teamed up with Wacoal to raise money for breast cancer research, WhatSheBuys was the first specialty retailer selected by Wacoal to participate in its Fi(gh)t For the Cure promotion in 2009. Before this, partnership in Wacoal's Susan G. Komen promotions had been reserved exclusively for department stores.
For more than 10 years, through different promotions and events, Wacoal has surpassed over $3.5 million in donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
