The company is donating $1 to Breast Cancer research for every bra sold during the month of October
MONTREAL, Sept. 30, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - La Vie en Rose is proud to announce that it will be contributing once again to the cause of breast cancer for October Breast Cancer Awareness month. The leading Canadian lingerie and swimwear specialty retailer will be donating $1 to breast cancer research for every bra sold online and in its 178 stores across the country from October 3 to 31, 2016.
"From the nature of our products and our clientele, it's natural that la Vie en Rose unites for the cause of breast cancer. I'm happy to be financially supporting the research of this disease, which is still today affecting too many women," explains Mr. François Roberge, President and CEO of la Vie en Rose. "La Vie en Rose, its employees and its Roses of Hope Foundation supports, and has supported, breast cancer for many years and the month of October is an especially fitting time to engage our clientele to this cause."
MORE THAN MONEY
In addition to supporting this important cause by donating thousands of dollars to breast cancer research at the end of October, la Vie en Rose has decided to get involved in the awareness as well because the fight against breast cancer is also about doing breast observation and being informed. For this reason, the company will have an information page on its website for the month of October, encouraging women to take action and take the health of their breasts in their own hands.
