In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Aveda cares about those effected by Breast Cancer, which is why they donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each special edition Pink Ribbon Hand Relief™ product to the Breast Cancer Research foundation. The foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder and dedicated to funding clinical and genetic research on breast cancer at medical institutions around the globe.
Aveda cares about the environment and the animals we share it with ,so donations from Aveda North America are used to fund cruelty-free research exploring environmental causes and links to breast cancer such as exposures to toxic chemicals and pollutants. For many years now their funding has been directed to a specific research project at Columbia University in New York that studies the interaction between environmental exposures and genetic susceptibility to breast cancer.
Since 2004, Aveda has contributed over $1.5 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This money comes not only from corporate contributions but also from employees and guests who have an opportunity to donate to the BCRF through fundraising activities held by the Aveda network throughout the month of October. Currently, more than 88 cents of each dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to research and awareness programs.
