Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
October is known as breast cancer awareness month, and brings attention to this disease that touches individuals from all walks of life. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, over 200,000 women alone will be diagnosed this year with invasive breast cancer. In the face of startling statistics such as these, many retailers team up with breast cancer organizations to raise awareness, and stress the importance of screening for both men and women. My Pacific Pearls is committed to the cause, and is proud to announce 25% of the proceeds of all pearl jewelry sold in October will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The retailer currently carries several options for pink pearl jewelry, keeping in line with “going pink” for the cause.
With a strong commitment to giving back, My Pacific Pearls routinely supports charitable organizations each month. This October, the jewelry retailer is supporting the Susan G. Komen Foundation and doing their part to emphasize early breast cancer detection and self exams. Early detection of breast cancer is the key to a higher survival rate, which is why breast cancer awareness is so important. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer type for women (second only to skin cancer), and My Pacific Pearls wants all women and men to be vigilant about their health and understand the importance of receiving an early diagnosis when treatment is more effective. The Susan G. Komen Foundation works tirelessly to end breast cancer forever in the United States and across the world. Donations to their organization help fund millions in research, community outreach programs, and education programs.
My Pacific Pearls offers an array of jewelry featuring pink pearls this October for anyone wanting to “go pink” this month. Among the more unique pieces is the Pink Tourmaline and Pearl 5-1 Necklace and Bracelet. The broad selection of pearl jewelry ranges from pink pearl sets to pearl necklaces, pendants, and bracelets, as well as stud and drop earrings. “The Susan G. Komen Foundation is an organization committed to breast cancer awareness. We are honored to be part of such a worthy cause and appreciate our customers who have partnered with us to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure,” a company spokesperson stated. “Our customers count on us for beautiful and high quality jewelry, but they also count on us for our social responsibility. In the past, we've donated to Feed the Children and the World Food Programme. It's only fitting we go pink for October and support Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”
