The Sandals Foundation Partners With Project Pink
October 17, 2011 - Sandals Foundation - Jamaica
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sandals Resorts and its philanthropic arm, the Sandals Foundation, are turning the Caribbean PINK this October! Through a partnership with Project Pink, Inc, a U.S. based charity that addresses the needs of the breast cancer community through simple, grassroots level programs and events, the companies have paired up to bring breast cancer awareness programs to the Caribbean.
Throughout the month of October, The Sandals Foundation will collect donations and designate them to PROJECT CARIBBEAN, which helps to provide educational materials about breast cancer to people in the regioni, raise program development funds for special educational clinics and on-site mammograms, and promote the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
Additionally, Project Pink, Inc. will extend its Project Joy! program into the Caribbean. Project Joy! is a wish-granting program designed for the women and men battling the disease, which allows them the opportunity to enjoy a very special event or fulfill a life-long wish. It is intended to improve the quality of their lives in ways that the medical field alone cannot provide.
“We are very grateful to Sandals Resorts and The Sandals Foundation for their invaluable help in this effort to educate men and women about good breast health,” said Allison Caudle, Founder of Project Pink, Inc. “Project Caribbean will most certainly help save lives.”
The Sandals Foundation is 501 (c) (3) a nonprofit organization rooted in three decades of community service and has helped change the lives of thousands and continues to make the region a better place every day. The Foundation’s mission is to harness the resources, talents, partnerships and awareness behind the Sandals Resorts International’s brands to tackle a myriad of issues affecting the Caribbean under three broad headings: community, education and the environment.
