Posted on by Village Green Admin

Breast cancer awareness is certainly a cause that everyone can rally behind. And no doubt for Breast Cancer Awareness month, you’ve been inundated with a ton of pink merchandise. There’s pink clothing, jewelry, candy, car accessories, and beauty care products to name a few. But if you look closely at many of these products, you’ll find that they rarely mention how much of your purchase is going to benefit breast cancer research. Some don’t even claim to donate proceeds to an organization!
