At WindRestrictor® we support various charities all year long through many different avenues, but the month of October certainly hits close to home for us!
If you feel led to give, Susan G Komen is an amazing organization that you may wish to learn more about.
From the website (https://ww5.komen.org/) -- "In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen®organization and the beginning of a global movement. What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, we’ve invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. Our efforts helped reduce deaths from breast cancer by 38 percent between 1989-2014 and we won’t stop until our promise is fulfilled."
We also have had many opportunities to create personalized graphics for cancer survivors. This one in particular has been at many Corvette shows, you may have even seen it on the popular Netflix series Corvette Nation!
