Why I have chosen to support the Pink Ribbon Foundation
I am delighted to confirm we are now partnering with the Pink Ribbon Foundation. For every box of Lash Lovers Freya or Lash Kisses Jo that you buy, we will donate a portion of our sales to support this amazing foundation.
When I was looking for a charity to partner with, I came across the Pink Ribbon Foundation and I was so impressed by their Head of Corporate Partnership, Lisa Allen. Lisa literally runs the charity from a bedroom in her home. There is very little infrastructure, which has been a deliberate decision, in order to keep all overheads as low as possible, so more money goes to cancer rather than running fancy offices.
As I am currently running Hello Dame from my bedroom, I could really relate to the ethos of Pink Ribbon. I believe a business should do some good in the world and it’s about so much more than just flogging products and making a profit!
A bit about Pink Ribbon
The Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839) is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or who have been affected by breast cancer or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment. The Pink Ribbon Foundation has very little infrastructure, it relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount, which goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised.

HOW DO I CHECK MY BREASTS?
Breasts come in different shapes and sizes and your breasts can change with age and vary at different times of the month. Knowing your breasts and what is normal for you is important as it will make it easier to spot any unusual changes. Knowing about breast cancer signs and symptoms can help you to understand what changes to look for and if you do spot anything unusual, you should get checked out by your doctor.
Check all parts of your breasts and armpits up to your collarbone.
