Perhaps you never would imagine that after purchasing a Rubbermaid product, your 6 percent contribution would be among the grand total of almost $50,000 that Rubbermaid Home Products donated to LBBC in 2009. After dressing up in your favorite White House | Black Market item from the “Give Hope” collection, consider that your purchase made it possible for White House | Black Market to donate more than $200,000 to LBBC last year. Your toast-to-hope with a limited edition Riedel wine glass is the reason why Riedel Crystal of America Inc. donated over $15,000 to LBBC in 2009.
For a fifth consecutive year, LBBC has been recognized as a “Four Star Charity” by leading nonprofit evaluator Charity Navigator, again earning the highest rating for charities. The organization that achieves this highly coveted recognition demonstrates financial health within the organization or charity. LBBC invests 84% of every dollar in our programs.
Last year your efforts of purchasing products that benefit LBBC and our programs helped over 600 women receive travel grants for LBBC conferences so they can learn more about their diagnosis. Last year, buying “Pink” for LBBC helped over 500 women voice their concerns to, receive lasting support from, and build phenomenal relationships with trained helpline volunteers who guide countless women through their breast cancer journey on our toll-free Survivors’ Helpline. Your contribution has a lasting impact on the difference and commitment that LBBC will continue to make in the breast cancer community with our programs and materials which are provided for little to no cost.
You can make a difference too! Help LBBC continue to empower all women affected by breast cancer. We look forward to your support this October. In honor of breast cancer awareness month make your shopping experience valuable. Support LBBC by shopping with our retail partners, visiting associated Websites, or volunteering your time.
