National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options.

After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.

NBCF offers free, innovative programs that other organizations aren’t providing to women facing breast cancer so that no one faces breast cancer alone.

NBCF is one of the most recognized and respected breast cancer charities in the world. NBCF has received the highest 4-star rating by Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator, for 14 years. On average, over 80% of our revenue is directed to our life-saving programs.

November – Men’s Health Issues Awareness Month

Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer – we’re taking them all on.

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

We exist to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives – this is what drives every single one of our 1,250 men’s health projects.

In everything we do, we strive to be transparent and accountable. We report thoroughly on each project so that our Mo Bros and Mo Sisters can see how their support is changing the lives of men around the world.

December – Salvation Army Christmas Appeal

Christmas is meant to be a time of celebration and joy, but if finances are tight, it can be challenging, stressful and isolating.

Every year, local Salvation Army centres and churches give hope to individuals and families in need at Christmas by providing free Christmas food hampers, toys, gifts, and gift cards. Christmas hampers are prepared with care using both purchased and donated goods and shared with those in the community who have fallen on tough times. Due to the impacts of COVID-19, please note your local Salvation Army might provide help differently, for instance, distributing vouchers instead of food hampers, or help only over the phone.

COVID-19, illness, family crises and other challenging circumstances may have you facing unexpected financial difficulties. If you are unsure whether you have enough food for Christmas, or you don’t know how you will afford presents for your kids, please contact your local Salvation Army. We want you to experience kindness and joy this Christmas. We are committed to giving you non-judgemental and confidential support to help you through this season.
