October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we're joining the national campaign to spread awareness! Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and about 1 in every 8 American women will get breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. That's why early detection and treatment of breast cancer is so important-- knowing what to do can save lives.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month we'll be having "get 10, give 10" for the month of October! Enjoy 10% off our Breast Cancer Awareness Collection and we'll simultaneously donate 10% of the proceeds from your purchase to the Susan G. Komen Organization. This money will be going towards breast cancer research to continue to work on finding treatments and a cure, as well as community health grants to raise awareness and overcome barriers to breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. When breast cancer is detected early enough, the 5-year survival rate is 99%, and new research into treatment methods can make that percentage even higher. Together, we can help ensure that breast cancer is detected at the right time and treated appropriately.

We are proud to announce The Art Smith Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
Named in honor of influential mid-century modernist New York City-based black jewelry designer Art Smith, a group of 50 jewelry industry brands have joined forces to start a $50,000 Endowment at FIT that will create ongoing scholarships and mentorships to support black students attending the Jewelry Design program. People of color are historically underrepresented in the jewelry industry and our goal is to turn that statistic around — with your help —one student at a time.
The Endowment is now open for donations of any amount. For detailed information on how to send your contribution by check or wire, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We stand with the Black community and with all victims of racism. We will continue investing our time, energy and resources to support communities that have been historically marginalized, and we will increase our efforts to fight for the systemic changes that are so urgently needed.
The Trevor Project was founded by the creators of the Academy Award-winning short film TREVOR in 1998, a film about a high school student ostracized for being gay. The Trevor Project provides LGBTQ youth with a safe and inclusive environment and life-saving, life-affirming programs and services.
For LGBTQ youth, coming out, or publicly revealing one's sexual orientation or transgender status, can be a stressful and difficult process. While coming out is often empowering and freeing, it can also mean having many difficult conversations with friends and family and confronting homophobia, transphobia and discrimination. For many, this takes a toll on their mental health: unfortunately millions of LGBTQ youth are at risk for suicide and other poor mental health outcomes. However, research shows that LGBTQ youth are incredibly resilient and have lots of potential to thrive! Social support, LGBTQ role models, and inclusive policies are all part of the protective factors that can help.
Through 24/7 services, The Trevor Project provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. At any time of the day, trained specialists are reachable through phone, text message, or online to provide counseling. The Trevor Project also provides an online database of valuable information on many topics specifically for LGBTQ youth. Over the past 20+ years, the hard work of The Trevor Project and their invaluable services have saved many lives and positively impacted even more.
