October is Breast Cancer Awareness month

Pink Ropes Give Hope

 

If I understand it correctly, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and it affects so many more ~ family & friends.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. To help the fight and raise awareness this October, Kolker Ropes will be donating 20% of all sales of pink rope to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. I am joining with other rope vendors in this campaign to save the tattas, and donate a percentage of their pink rope sales to their favorite breast cancer charity to help eradicate this disease. I am giving you a 10% discount on any pink ropes you buy from me, and then giving 20% of full price, $6 to BCRF on Halloween.

So you get a $30 rope for $3 off, and I give $6 to BCRF…

Men too!

Why are we doing this?

For us, breast cancer is personal. Most of us have a story to share about a loved one who has battled breast cancer. We know first hand what this disease does to it’s victims and their families. Please remember to get checked, do your self-exams and or have others check you out. (yep no stupid jokes about how I offer to check your breasts. Get a professional to check!)

Why the Breast Cancer Research Foundation?

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated to preventing and curing breast cancer through funding research into this terrible disease. They hold the highest ratings with both Charity Navigator and CharityWatch. And because 91 cents of each dollar spent by BCRF goes directly to research and awareness programs, we know our donations will make a difference.
