As you may know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. That means everyone is “going pink“ to show their support. Breast cancer is currently one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. It affects approximately 1 in every 8 women. Pilot Pens has gone above and beyond simply “Going Pink” to show their support this year. From 1/1/16 to 12/31/17, Pilot Pens will donate 10% of their gross proceeds from each pink ribbon product sold to the National Breast Cancer Foundation up to $100,000! The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to help women affected by breast cancer through education, early detection, and support services. Show your support by “going pink“ with Pilot Pens! Their G2 pens, Acroball pens, and their Frixion erasable highlighters are all part of their go pink collection! I have always been a fan of Pilot Pens so when I heard about their new go pink collection, I just couldn’t pass them up! Not only are they super cute, but I feel really good about supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation!
