Pin & Tack Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

In the month of October, all of Pin & Tack's regular-priced pink items will provide $1 towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation (or NBCF.) Over 80% of all spending by the NBCF will go to programs that benefit women, such as breast health services.

Did you know . . . ?

- Breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women worldwide. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

- Screenings, early detection and better treatment options have been an important part in decreasing the amount of deaths caused by breast cancer. NBCF provides women in need with free mammograms through their National Mammography Program.

How can you help?

Donating money is not the only way to help our fellow women. You can volunteer your time, participate in special events or simply bring attention to the cause through social media or bringing it up to your friends and family.
