Eggland’s Best is proud to once again support Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the world’s largest breast cancer advocacy organization and the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer.
“On behalf of my colleagues and the 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S., we’d like to thank Eggland’s Best for their continued support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever,” said Nancy G. Brinker, founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen. “In the past year, with the help of partners such as Eggland’s Best, we were able to distribute $93 million to local communities, providing more than 600,000 women with free screenings and over 100,000 with treatment assistance.”
Through November 15, 2011, Eggland's Best will feature the signature "EB" stamp with the Susan G. Komen Running Ribbon on all varieties of EB farm fresh eggs. They will also be donating $50,000 to support Susan G. Komen in their pledge to end breast cancer forever.
Eggland's Best is America's #1 Egg. Over the next few months, millions of cartons of Eggland's Best Pink Dozen eggs with the Komen Running Ribbon will be sold throughout the United States. These special eggs will bring increased awareness to this very important cause.
Eggland's Best eggs are a great way to source all-natural nutrients that are important in maintaining overall health and wellness.
