In December, Cartridge World North America donated $19,040 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). More than 100 Cartridge World stores participated in the fundraising campaign. The non-profit organization will use the donation to offer early detection services and support programs for breast cancer patients.
“According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide – and that impact is felt by everyone, including the Cartridge World family,” said William Swanson, Chief Executive Officer for Cartridge World North America. “Raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation is our way of getting involved in our community, raising awareness and giving back for a cause that touches so many of us.”
The NBFC was presented with the donation at its headquarters in Dallas on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. With a mission to save lives through early detection, the NBCF partners with 94 medical facilities to provide free mammograms and diagnostic breast care services to women in need. The foundation also offers multiple educational resources aimed at breast cancer survivors.
“With the support and partnership of Cartridge World, NBCF is able to provide funds to support our mission and programs,” said Brent Hail, Senior VP, Development of the NBCF.
During Cartridge World’s “Round Up for Pink Ink” campaign, more than 125 stores raised funds for the cause, including:
Cartridge World of Boynton Beach, FL, a location that encouraged hundreds of customers to donate to the campaign, raising $1,124.
Cartridge World will continue its collaboration with the NBCF to raise funds for the non-profit organization. In the meantime, visit the NBCF website to learn how you can get involved or donate now.
