WhatSheBuys & Wacoal Team Up To Donate Funds From Wacoal Bras to Breast Cancer Research

May is the national breast cancer research month and Wacoal and WhatSheBuys are doing their part by contributing part of the proceeds generated from every Wacoal Bra sold to Breast Cancer Research.

San Gabriel, CA - May 14, 2009 - WhatSheBuys has teamed up with Wacoal to donate part of the proceeds of all <Wacoal bras purchased at the WhatSheBuys store or online between May 1st and May 15th to Komen for the Cure for Breast Cancer Research.


The Wacoal Fi(gh)t For the Cure cause in conjunction with WhatSheBuys will culminate on Friday May, 15th with a complimentary fitting in a Wacoal bra from a Wacoal fit specialist. The event will take place at the WhatSheBuys store located in the heart of the Old Mission District in San Gabriel, CA. For every woman that participates in this in-store event, Wacoal & WhatSheBuys will each donate $2 to Komen for the Cure for breast cancer research and outreach programs. Wacoal & WhatSheBuys will each make an additional donation of $2 for every Wacoal bra purchase in-store or online between May 1st and May 15th.

Over the past 10 years through different promotions and events, Wacoal has surpassed over $2 million in donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

WhatSheBuys is the first specialty retailer selected by Wacoal to participate in its Fi(gh)t For the Cure program (in the past, this partnership has been reserved exclusively for department stores). "We are honored that we were chosen by Wacoal to become the first specialty retailer to participate in such a worthwhile cause" said Cathy Kamimura, Chief Buyer at WhatSheBuys. "This cause is very dear to us as we have a number of friends who are breast cancer survivors and a number of friends who are fighting the disease right now".
