By: eBay News Team
One Hundred Percent of Proceeds Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Awareness This October
eBay for Charity and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) are teaming up to fight breast cancer this October to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC), a charitable initiative of the CFDA Foundation that raises funds and awareness for breast cancer in the U.S. and internationally. Starting today through October 18 (8am PT) eBay shoppers and fashion-lovers alike can visit www.eBay.com/CFDA to browse exclusive and special-priced items, of which 100% of the proceeds will benefit Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.
With the proceeds from Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the CFDA Foundation provides meaningful help to all women concerned about and/or diagnosed with breast cancer by providing access to reliable health information and quality health care. To date, FTBC has raised more than $55 million dollars internationally, and garnered the support of the world’s top fashion designers, models, photographers, celebrities, athletes and corporate partners. The CFDA Foundation works with The New York Community Trust to develop a focused grant-making program covering the critical areas of breast cancer screening, treatment and survival.
“Fashion Targets Breast Cancer will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2019. We are so pleased to partner with eBay for Charity this month to kick off our fundraising efforts,” said Lisa Smilor, Executive Vice President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and CFDA Foundation. “The world-wide reach of eBay helps to bring tremendous exposure to this important cause, and our participating designers.”
“eBay for Charity enables millions of people to come together and to make an impact for the causes that are most important to them,” said Brenda Halkias, General Manager of eBay for Charity. “With more than 3.5 million breast cancer survivors today, October marks a significant moment for those who have been touched by the disease. Together with the CFDA we’re raising awareness and funds this month by bringing together the power of our communities to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.”
