Pink Ribbon Charities

This year, if you want to make a financial gift to help support cancer research, provide mammograms to women in need and raise awareness through educational efforts, make the most of your tax-deductible checks, giving some of these national nonprofit organizations that spend more on support they spend on administrative costs and fundraising. I've arranged for the proportion of their funds used to support the cause.Evelyn Lauder, breast cancer survivor and senior corporate vice president of Estee Lauder companies founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) 15 years ago, to help fund research, find ways to prevent and cure breast cancer and raise awareness. They plan to give 34 million dollars in October 2008 for cancer research. Evelyn Lauder is the co-creator of the original Pink Ribbon, launched in 1992 with Alexandra Penney, former editor in chief of Self Magazine.
