Nutcrackers may not be the first kind of soldiers that would come to mind when you think about the fight against breast cancer. But at Nutcracker Ballet Gifts, we have been contributing to this fight since 2010. Since then, we have been able to donate over $16,000 to fund research into preventive and curative measures via various breast cancer foundations. And every penny came from the proceeds of selling nutcrackers!
How we got involved:
We have all been touched by cancer. Whether breast cancer or other, our owner and designer, Michelle Dorf, was certainly no different. In 2010, with a determination to use our unique platform as a means for good, she came up with idea of the “Pink Ribbon Nutcracker”. With such an exclusive product, it soon became one of the most popular items in our line. Over 17,000 units later, the popularity is only growing!
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is the international symbol for breast cancer. Fighters, survivors, promoters, donors, advocates, and everyone that cares about the fight against breast cancer identify with the pink color.
The high prevalence of breast cancer means there is a high chance that you’ll know a family member or a friend who has survived or ultimately lost the fight against breast cancer. Over the years we have chosen to donate to the following organizations. Together, we can win the fight against this monster. And it all starts with doing something positive to support the cause. If you wish to donate directly, you may visit any of these sites: (This is not a direct endorsement to any specific cause or foundation. All individuals should research any foundation they choose to support directly via websites like Charity Navigator and Charity Watch.)
You can support the cause in your own way by gifting one of our pink cuties to a loved one or purchasing one for yourself. A percentage of the profits is donated to trusted breast cancer charities and research organizations.
Here is a look of what we have for you this season!
