As you may know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women and on average, 1 out of 8 will receive the bad news that they have it. If it is detected early, there is a greater chance of recovery, that’s why it is so important to raise awareness of screening (a palpation is recommended once a year from the age of 25 during a gynaecological appointment, a medical screening every 2 years from the age of 50 and frequent self-palpation at home).
At Label K, we already support women worldwide by sharing our profits, to allow them to get more chances to achieve their dreams. Being a team of women, we obviously wanted to take part in the fight against breast cancer. That’s why for every order placed in October, we will give 1€ to Think Pink Europe.
Think Pink is a European association, bringing together more than 30 organisations in 20 countries, all with the same objectives: raising funds, funding research and raising awareness to tackle breast cancer. The association focuses on reducing disparities in the access to quality health care and thus closing the gap that exists in breast cancer in European countries. Want to do more for Think Pink? Here are some examples: hair donation (Coupe d’éclat in Belgium, but you can participate even though you live in another country), Race for the Cure® which are the biggest runs & walks all around Europe, and you can also organize your own event or fund-raising.
If you had a crush on a piece of our collection, now is the perfect time to order! If you wish, you can even donate more; this will be offered to you once you’re at the checkout. Together, let’s fight breast cancer!
