Thank you to everyone that purchased a pair of mak ziggles in the month of October. We committed to donated proceeds from the sale of every pair of pink mak socks to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Below is a copy of the donation letter that we received.
Mak Soks was thrilled to be able to make that donation today. 91% of funds donated to this amazing foundation go directly into finding a cure for Breast Cancer. So many family and friends are effected by this nasty cancer and we were more than happy to help in the cause. You can visit their website here, http://www.bcrfcure.org/.
In conjunction with the mak socks marketing team we are thrilled to announce that we will running this cancer fundraising promotion every October. Thank you to all of our amazing customers for supporting our cause and helping all those fighting cancer.
Dear Mak Soks,
On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your thoughtful contribution to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. All of us at BCRF are truly grateful for your generous support and your efforts to advance breast cancer research and awareness.
The Foundation’s commitment to preventing and curing breast cancer is neither a simple tagline nor an empty promise; it is our pledge to the individuals who receive this diagnosis each day. When the late Evelyn Lauder established BCRF 20 years ago, she was determined to fund transformative scientific investigations that aim to improve cancer treatment and prevent breast cancer in future generations of women – research that saves lives. Your gift will advance our mission and will provide scientists with the crucial dollars needed to bring about lifesaving progress. Every BCRF-funded discovery offers hope for the resilient women, men and families facing breast cancer.
With the freedom to explore creative and innovative science, the more than 200 researchers comprising BCRF’s 2013-2014 research brain trust are using our support to unravel the multifaceted defects at the core of breast cancer. Our global commitment to excellence ensures that the most forward-thinking scientists, regardless of location, receive necessary funding and have the opportunity to collaborate with likeminded visionaries. Your support fuels their achievements and will have a lasting impact on breast cancer research and the investigation of related diseases.
We honor the contributions of our donors by remaining fiscally responsible. Currently, 91 cents of every dollar spent by the Foundation is directed towards research and awareness programs. BCRF is still the only breast cancer organization to receive an A+ from CharityWatch, in addition to a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for the eleventh time since 2002.
Thank you again for your dedication to our mission. Our progress would not be possible without your vital support.
