Rethink Breast Cancer encourages you to wear your Joe Fresh Style Fashion
Targets Breast Cancer t-shirt on Friday May 29
TORONTO, May 26 /CNW/ - On Friday May 29, help create awareness for the
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign by wearing your Fashion Targets Breast
Cancer t-shirt to the workplace as part of Fashion Targets Friday. It's a fun
and fashionable way to get involved and show your support for this important
The 8th annual Fashion Targets Breast Cancer program is a national
fundraising campaign benefiting Rethink Breast Cancer
(www.rethinkbreastcancer.com) that focuses on the sale of limited edition
T-shirts and reminds women to target their breast health.
This year, Rethink Breast Cancer worked with the team at Joe Fresh Style
(www.joe.ca) to create fashionable tees at prices that simply can't be beat.
Available throughout the month of May at many Joe Fresh Style locations across
the country (visit www.fashiontargets.ca for store locations), the shirts will
retail for just $12 - the ultimate, and affordable, must-have of the season
for the charitable fashionista.
Further emphasizing this fundraising commitment, 100 per cent of the net
proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go towards funding the various
research, support and awareness programs operated by Rethink Breast Cancer and
benefiting women and families affected by the disease nationwide.
"Fashion Targets Friday is more than just wearing a T-shirt to support a
cause, it's about encouraging women to become more 'breast aware' and letting
everyone know that there are resources available to help them cope with the
disease," explained MJ DeCoteau, Executive Director, Rethink Breast Cancer.
