DODGEVILLE, Wis., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lands' End Pink Thread Project will once again prove that a little pink can do a lot of good. The company is raising awareness and funding for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) through the annual campaign, which was created to further support the organization's mission to be the end of breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research.
"At Lands' End, we are proud to partner with and support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through the annual Pink Thread Project," said Joe Boitano, Co-Interim Chief Executive Officer, Lands' End. "This impactful campaign proves that a little pink truly does a lot of good, and together with our customers we look forward to helping make a difference."
The Pink Thread Project is a simple, beautiful way to raise funds for breast cancer research by adding any monogram or embroidered icon using pink thread to Lands' End apparel, accessories or home goods ranging from totes and towels to cardigans and shirts. For every Pink Thread monogram or embroidery, Lands' End will donate $4.50 of the $6.00 fee to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Supporters can take part in the Pink Thread Project by ordering online at landsend.com from September 15, 2016 through October 31, 2016.
"Our goal is to accelerate the breakthroughs bringing us closer to a cure and to speed up the progress that will improve survivorship and quality of life for breast cancer patients today. But that research relies on us all—by uniting with the highest rated breast cancer organization in the country, Lands' End will undoubtedly propel research forward, faster. Together, we can be the end of breast cancer," said Myra J. Biblowit, President & CEO, Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
