Each October, Kyle Design donates 5% of all sales of items with the color pink or that feature the awareness ribbon design to an organization that is working towards a cure for breast cancer.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year we were very happy to donate $150 to the Endowed Fund for The Breast Cancer Site Researcher at Mayo Clinic. Even better, the Mayo Clinic matches any donation (up to $250,00), so the value of our gift doubles to $300. The Mayo Clinic operates three research hospitals plus more than 50 clinics.  It is one of the world’s preeminent medical research facilities and I thought it was a good choice for this year’s donation.

Last year, we were able to donate $90 to the Susan G. Komen for a Cure organization, so we were very happy to be donating over 50% more than last year to a worthy organization. Ever dollar helps move us toward breakthroughs in the field of breast cancer research.

I started this program in honor of my cousin Kim, a breast cancer survivor, who passed away last year in her early 50s. It was such a shock to lose a such a happy, vibrant family member who was just a few years older than I am. She was a fabulous gardener (her garden was a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat) and she traveled the world, too.

At the memorial service, there is a wonderful picture of her with a giant panda from a trip to the Giant Panda Sanctuary and Breeding Centre at the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China. I created the Panda Christmas ornament at right as a memorial for her sisters and engraved a message for them on the back.

I’m proud that Kyle Design is a company that donates to organizations that fund mammograms, research causes of breast cancer and develop treatments for the disease. I hope we can one day soon find a cure for breast cancer.
