CINCINNATI, Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.definemystyle.com/ysc) Define My Style (DMS) joins Young Survival Coalition (YSC) in supporting young women diagnosed with breast cancer. The YSC store in the DMS Marketplace features custom handbags designed by DMS members, aged 13-19. Add a $2 donation to your purchase and DMS will donate 50% of the profit to YSC.
DMS members express their creativity through their creations. The collection of fabrics in YSC's core colors provide designers with a vibrant palette while drawing attention to the very recognized "awareness" pink. The original tote, messenger, shopping, overnight and mini bags are custom produced in the USA. Teens can enter this week's design contest to help raise awareness for YSC.
"Many of our members know someone who's been affected by breast cancer - moms, aunts, grandmothers, teachers," said Kristine Sturgeon, Founder & CEO of Define My Style. "Our partnership with YSC provides these girls with a creative way to display their support for the women in their lives."
"We are pleased to partner with Define My Style, offering young women a way to express themselves while raising awareness that young women can and do get breast cancer," said Jenna Glazer, Director of Development for YSC.
