In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Husqvarna, a division of the world’s largest producer of outdoor power products and lawn care equipment, is partnering with Living Beyond Breast Cancer in the fight against this deadly disease. Now in its fourth year, Husqvarna’s “Saws for a Cause” campaign will raise both awareness and funds.
Consumers in the U.S. can help by purchasing limited-edition pink toy chainsaws from local dealers. For every purchase of a pink toy chainsaw while supplies last, Husqvarna and its partners will donate $3 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a charitable organization that provides programs and services to those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer.
“Year after year, Husqvarna remains committed to supporting consumer education, particularly around Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” says Michelle Sordi, marketing director for Husqvarna. “We hope that this program will allow us to raise awareness of the cause and contribute to those who have been affected by the disease.”
To raise further awareness for the cause, Husqvarna is holding the 2016 Husqvarna Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway where one randomly selected winner will receive a limited-edition pink 450 Rancher chainsaw and limited-edition pink toy chainsaw. The giveaway entry period runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 15.
According to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, nearly 150,000 people are living with metastatic, or stage IV, breast cancer in the U.S. Thousands more will be diagnosed with invasive and non-invasive forms of breast cancer each year.
“We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Husqvarna during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” says Jean Sachs, chief executive officer of Living Beyond Breast Cancer. “This campaign will help us continue to provide people diagnosed with breast cancer trusted information and a community of support.”
