We are so grateful for Ice.com's continuing support and commitment to encourage women everywhere to take a proactive stance with their breast and ovarian
Montreal, QC (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
Ice.com, the trendsetter and tastemaker in jewelry, and Bright Pink today announced the launch of its second annual Buy Pink event. For the months of September and October 2008, Ice.com will donate fifteen percent of sales on nine select jewelry pieces to Bright Pink, a unique non-profit organization that arms young women at risk for breast and ovarian cancer with education, support and a sense of community.
Approximately 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and this year over 22,000 women will die from ovarian cancer. Bright Pink is making the difference in the fight against these devastating diseases by educating women so they can make informed decisions about their health. Bright Pink was created by a courageous young woman, who at 23 opted to have a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy after testing positive for the BCRCA 1 gene, putting her at up to a 90% risk of developing breast cancer.
"Ice.com is proud to support Bright Pink for the second year with Buy Pink program" said Pinny Gniwisch, Founder and EVP, Marketing, Ice.com. "We hope to bring awareness to our customers and site visitors and provide Bright Pink the support they need to continue their worthy cause"
"We are so grateful for Ice.com's continuing support and commitment to encourage women everywhere to take a proactive stance with their breast and ovarian" said Lindsay Avner, Founder and Executive Director, Bright Pink.
