This month, we are showing our pink pride by supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month! For the entire month of October, we will be donating 20% of proceeds from all Pink Collection purchases to our local chapter of Susan G. Komen of the Ozarks.
This year, Lauren Stokes, our founder, and CEO was selected to be one of Komen Ozarks BigWigs, an annual campaign that engages regional corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. Through this program, 75 percent of funds raised remain in our local communities to help fund the local breast cancer initiatives.
Komen Ozark BigWig (noun): a very important person on a mission to end breast cancer forever by raising awareness and funds in their community; willing to have fun while wearing a ridiculous pink wig.
Lauren James is in the business of making women feel more confident and beautiful every day, so we decided to kick-off the month with an event that did just that. We invited some very special ladies to our home office and pampered them with hair and makeup by Megan Farmer, and of course styled them in Lauren James. After they were all dressed up, we had lots of fun with confetti, silly string, feathers and more. The survivors and their co-survivors were all treated to a fun, professional photo shoot in celebration of, well, them! Judging by the pictures, you can truly see the love for life and celebration of women in the photos.
This was such a special moment for Team LJ to hear all about these women’s stories and fight. Our marketing intern this semester, Lauren Weaver, has an extra special place in her heart because her mother is a breast cancer survivor herself.
We have more fun in store throughout this month, so definitely show your support by shopping our pink collection. Plus, all pink items purchased will receive an exclusive Breast Cancer Awareness sticker.
