You Pinned, We Donated!

Last year we launched our Season of Giving Campaign to help raise money and create awareness for a great cause. This year, we partnered with the American Cancer Society® to support an issue that’s very close to our hearts—breast cancer.

In the weeks leading up to the holidays, we asked you to repin images from the Obagi Season of Giving Pinterest board and in return we promised to donate $10 for every repinned image. We’re incredibly proud to announce that because of your effort we were successful in reaching our goal of donating $15,000 to the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer®

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1984 by cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath. Margery’s vision was to celebrate fellow cancer survivors while making an impact in the fight against breast cancer. In the first year, she organized a “move-along-a-thon” in Boston, Massachusetts that attracted approximately 200 participants. Nearly 3 decades later, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has 8 million walkers participating in Making Strides events in more than 270 communities nationwide.

The efforts of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer staff and supporters have been instrumental in contributing to the increasing number of breast cancer survivors in the United States. We’re happy to have the opportunity to contribute to a Making Strides event that will provide financial assistance to breast cancer research and ultimately aid in the effort to find a cure for breast cancer.

But we couldn’t have done it without you.

A big thank you to all who participated and helped make the Season of Giving a success. We’re proud to have a community dedicated to pushing forward in the fight against breast cancer!
