BCRF Pink Ribbon
The mission of The Breast Cancer Research FoundationĀ® is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health. A minimum of 85 cents of every dollar they raise goes to research and awareness programs. A global approach is critical since public health indicators suggest that by 2020, 70 percent of all breast cancers cases will be in developing countries. Some collaborations are between U.S.-based researchers working with significant populations of women with breast cancer and oncologists and cancer researchers based in other countries. Other projects are initiated locally but have international implications; they range from novel laboratory research about the molecular basis of breast cancer, to new approaches to improving and standardizing patient care. The goal of The Breast Cancer Research FoundationĀ® is to be able to offer better outcomes to women with breast cancer, and to prevent healthy women from developing it, no matter where they live.

Trees For The Future
Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and their country programs, they have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. Most communities around the world recognize that they need to plant trees on their degraded lands if they are to improve their lives. Trees for the Future provides technical knowledge on agroforestry and sustainable development, along with planting materials so that communities can return their degraded lands and struggling farms back to sustainable production.

Beneficial trees minimize soil erosion, supply forage for animals, and provide a source of fuelwood, but planting trees is difficult when the canopy has disappeared, topsoil has been eroded, and the climate and growing conditions have changed. Through their network of technicians, volunteers, and community leaders world-wide, their program reaches remote areas and gives local people the knowledge and ability to rehabilitate their environment. Trees for the Future has helped thousands of communities in Central America, Africa, and Asia improve their livelihoods and their environment by planting nearly 50 million trees. Trees for the Future calculates that these trees remove approximately one million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year. Learn more ...
