ARLINGTON, Mass., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GiftBasketsOverseas.com (GBO), the experts in international gift delivery, announced the launch of its Gifts Against Breast Cancer campaign, in cooperation with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), for Mother's Day. GBO has selected an exclusive line of Mother's Day gifts for delivery in the USA, and marked them with NBCF's pink ribbon. For every one of these gifts sold from April 8 - May 8, 2016, GiftBasketsOverseas.com will donate 10% of the gift's retail price to NBCF for early breast cancer detection, education, research, and support services.
One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, but when found early, the five year survival rate is 98%. As such, education, prevention, and diagnostic services are the front lines in the battle against breast cancer. NBCF does its part with the National Mammography Program (NMP) – providing free diagnostic breast care services for underserved women; Beyond The Shock® (BTS) – a global, comprehensive online guide to breast cancer; and Early Detection Plan (EDP) – an interactive tool that helps women organize and remember their breast health action plan. NBCF also works with top scientists and hospitals around the world to find the cure.
"Our intention has always been to give back in a meaningful way, but an important question has been where to best focus our efforts," says Dmitriy Peregudov, GBO's Chief Gift Officer. "Beating breast cancer stands out as having major impact on women and their families globally, and NBCF has an outstanding record of service. We're excited to work with them, and to provide customers the opportunity to make their Mother's Day gifts doubly generous. We hope this campaign leads to more awareness, bigger donations, and an end to breast cancer."
Customers will find a variety of gifts for Mother's Day marked with the pink ribbon for delivery to the USA, including gourmet gift assortments, healthy fruit baskets, high-quality spa gifts and more. Additionally, even though 10% of the cost of selected gifts will be donated to NBCF, customers can still use their promotional codes for savings when placing orders. Customers can keep track of the campaign's success via social media, as the GBO team will be updating Facebook and Twitter with breast cancer facts, Gifts Against Breast Cancer progress, and exclusive promotions for followers.
