5,500 breast cancer cases each year in Austria. The most common type of cancer amongst women worldwide. And the small, pink ribbon that sets a big statement in the fight against breast cancer: for prevention and awareness, for solidarity with women battling breast cancer and for hope. SKINY supports the Pink Ribbon Initiative of the Austrian Cancer Aid and is proud to be part of this joint movement to raise awareness of breast cancer prevention and early detection, as well as to drive research and thus save lives.
SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
In October 2022, SKINY donated 5 euros per bra sold to Pink Ribbon. As a result, 5,000 euros were donated to the Pink Ribbon Initiative of the Austrian Cancer Aid. We would like to thank everyone who bought a bra in October and thus supported the SKINY fundraising campaign!
WHAT IS PINK RIBBON?
The “Pink Ribbon” is the symbol for a worldwide initiative for solidarity with breast cancer patients that was founded in 1992. In Austria it was successfully realized by the Austrian Cancer Aid and other well-known parters since 2002. Learn more on the Pink Ribbon website.
"Feeling good in one‘s own skin should be self explanatory for every woman, of every age. We have clearly set ourselves the goal of contributing to feeling good every day with our product lines and would like to use the Pink Ribbon campaign to raise awareness specifically on the topic of breast cancer prevention and early detection."
