Today is the Day! #GivingTuesday

December 03, 2019

 

Today is the day, #GivingTuesday, that we ask you to empower the young women and men trying to create a safer marketplace. They are spending their college years sharing with friends and family the chemicals of concern in our everyday products. Today, there are 44 high school and college chapters dedicated to this mission.   Won’t you join them, empower them, to keep doing this hard work? Every dollar you give today goes to expanding our community.  With the science continuing to shed light on the role of toxins in breast and other cancers, it’s time to make a change to prevent disease. Please give now. www.protectourbreasts.org/donate #ourforeverfuture

 

 

Breast Cancer Prevention 2019

October 24, 2019

October signals Breast Cancer awareness and often the messaging is around finding a cure. We believe the best cure is to avoid a diagnosis all together. The newest research links exposure to environmental toxins up through a first full-term pregnancy with a breast cancer diagnosis later in life. Our hope? To minimize the toxins found in everyday products by encouraging brands to remove them and young women to avoid products with them.  How do they know? That is our mission - to share about chemicals to look for on labels, new behaviors to adopt to avoid toxins and digestible tips to protect our breasts. We work with organic brands that are working hard to create a safer marketplace. And... we are doing this while we are in college. The organization and it's 42 chapters at high schools and colleges is run by one professor and a small team of dynamic Isenberg business and public health students dedicated to this important work. If you want to support Breast Cancer Prevention knowing your dollars will go directly to protecting young women, please give to Protect Our Breasts today!

The Second Annual National Earthdayogathon is here!

April 04, 2019

The National Earthdayogathon is our annual fundraising event that we hold instead of a walk or a run. Earthdayogathon is an opportunity to come together as a community and practice Seva for Saucha (service for a cleaner, less-toxic lifestyle). Attend, host, or sponsor a donation-based yoga class around Earth Day, April 22nd, to support the sharing of digestible science-based tips that embody our message.

 

Our goal is a safer marketplace where women in their “window of susceptibility” (through their first pregnancy) don’t have to worry about toxic chemical exposures that could increase their risk of breast cancer and other diseases later in life. Your contribution makes a BIG impact on our modest nonprofit.

 

If you do yoga and have a favorite studio, it's NOT TOO LATE to encourage them to register at Earthdayogathon.org/teachers If you simply want to encourage our 750+ ambassadors at our 35+ college and high school chapters to continue to make a difference, we would be so grateful for your contribution.

 

Earthdayogathon Sponsors and Earthdayogathon Studios - Donate the proceeds from your donation-based class on the donation page! ....and THANK YOU for your support!!!

Support Us On #GIVINGTUESDAY

November 26, 2018

While the POB mission is to encourage young women to avoid environmental toxins that contribute to breast cancer, Protect Our Breasts is also an invaluable experiential learning experience for us - as young, motivated, change-makers. Our home, in the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, allows us to earn credits while learning valuable business skills to solve world problems.

 

By supporting us on #GivingTuesday (11/27), you will do double duty - sending a message to our university that you value both the cause of breast cancer prevention  and the educational component of our organization. It is a rare and valuable opportunity we have to work on such an important issue while we are still in college. We thank you for helping us encourage our friends and other young women to protect themselves from breast cancer. Please add us to your holiday gift list and give the gift of a safer tomorrow for us all.

 

 

We hope that you will continue to join us in our journey throughout the year and hope you invite others to join us too!
