EMPOWER THE PINK means that all of us are empowered to do something about breast cancer, whether it is driving a car with a Breast Cancer Awareness license plate, making a donation, or simply signing a petition showing your love and concern for breast cancer patients and survivors.

According to the Center for Disease Control, more than 104,000 Ohio residents are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and more than 23,000 die from this vicious disease annually.

You can help these women and men by supporting the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio’s EMPOWER THE PINK campaign.

The Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio is an organization worthy of your support:

  • Your support provides critical services to women and men in need, including transportation to treatment, co-pays for prescriptions and doctor visits, and emergency assistance to pay for housing, utilities and food.

  • We are a lean organization focused on our mission of helping women and men affected by breast cancer. In 2012, only 7% of our operating budget was spent on administration. 73% of our funds went directly to grants to nonprofits in your community to provide emergency assistance to breast cancer patients. The remaining 20% was devoted to education and community outreach.

  • 100% of all funds raised stay in Ohio.

Supporting EMPOWER THE PINK requires no hard work! All you do is put a sign on your sales counter or desk asking for signatures and identify how much you will donate per signature - $10, $100, $1,000 … you name the amount! Once a sign has been filled, you can post it on your wall and put up another sign.

You can also incorporate your support into your social media! Post on Facebook, or tweet via Twitter, that for every like, share or retweet, you will donate $1, $10, or $100 … up to the limit you select.

Feel free to publicize your support of breast cancer patients and survivors in all of your media advertising so that the community is aware of your concern (we will provide you with sample verbiage and logos). At the end of the month, send us the money you agreed to donate. We will list you as a “PROUD SUPPORTER OF EMPOWER THE PINK” on our website.

It’s very easy to participate. Simply complete the interest form below and let us know how many locations will be participating and how many posters you would like. We will send you a clear static “PROUD SUPPORTER” window decal and sign holder for each location and as many posters as you requested. We can also send brochures, annual reports, and even a Hope Bank so that your customers can donate directly.

Questions? Contact Deb Ferenc, General Administrator, at deb@bcfohio.org or 216-287-0355.
