We’ve written a few founder’s letters in our time, but none feels quite as important as this one. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like so many of you, our lives have been touched by people close to us who have suffered from this disease. We are not alone in this; in fact, one in eight women will have breast cancer at some point in their life, and 100% of women will know someone who is diagnosed with breast cancer.
Prevention and early detection of cancer is a cause that is close to our hearts, and we’re incredibly honored to support Stand Up To Cancer and the Pink Fund. For the month of October, we will be donating 20% of the sales of the Rose Gold Sonic Toothbrush and the Pink Ribbon Package - with a minimum donation of $75,000 - to Stand Up To Cancer. Their mission is to accelerate the pace of cancer research, to get new therapies to patients quickly, and save lives. We are also contributing $25,000 to the Pink Fund, who provide breast cancer patients with financial support for basic needs, reducing stress levels and enabling them to focus on healing.
So thank you, truly, for choosing BURST and, more importantly, helping us to support two wonderful organizations. BURST’s mission has always been to provide high quality and affordable oral care to everyone. Our hope is that by spreading awareness and raising funds, cancer patients from all communities will have equal access to quality care.
Let’s do this, together!
