This year, eBags has worked with top brands including CamelBak, Case Closed, Victorinox, Road Wired, Pacific Design, Clava, and American Tourister to develop pink bags and accessories especially for the Pick Pink program. eBags has also developed its own collection of 18 Pick Pink products that includes backpacks, messenger bags, luggage, travel accessories and business cases. eBags.com also features a Pick Pink Page, www.ebags.com/pickpink, that allows customers to search all the pink bags by category. This page also includes information on the Komen Foundation and has helpful links to message boards, fast facts and information about breast cancer education and prevention, including online breast self-examination instructions. "eBags is proud to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation," said Jon Nordmark, CEO of eBags.com. "Over 70% of our customers are women and we are committed to fighting this life-threatening disease by raising funds for breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment through our Pick Pink Program and by educating our customers about the importance of early detection." This year alone, more than 200,000 new invasive cases of breast cancer are expected to occur among women and men in the United States, and more than 40,000 women and men will die from this disease. Until more is known about preventing breast cancer, detection of breast cancer at an early stage provides more treatment options and a greater chance of survival. When the disease is confined to the breast, the five-year survival rate is more than 95%. "A key to our success at the Komen Foundation is that we collaborate with a variety of organizations to provide creative ways for people to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer," said Cindy Schneible, vice president of cause-related marketing and sponsorship at the Komen Foundation. "We are proud to have the opportunity to partner with eBags.com to increase breast cancer awareness and allow consumers nationwide to make a valuable contribution to breast cancer research and community outreach programs." The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is fighting to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. In addition to funding research, the Foundation supports education, screening and treatment projects in communities around the world and delivers the life-saving message of early detection to millions of women and men.
