We have a pretty lofty goal. But we believe in the power of numbers. Especially when those numbers are Moms.
According to the American Cancer Society, The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. Our site, Moms Who Need Wine has 641,000 fans on Facebook, and 98% of those are women. That means that 80,000 of our fans will likely be directly impacted by this disease.
So let's do something about it. Let's each give up one glass of wine this month. Heck, half a glass even. And instead put that dollar, or two, or five toward research and education that will save lives. If every one of our fans were to give ONE DOLLAR, that's $641,000 that we could raise to help fund Breast Cancer research and education.
Thank you for your support.
