CHICAGO — Today, Bright Pink, a national breast and ovarian health non-profit organization, is putting a proactive spin on National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by officially announcing their #NotDoneYet campaign.
The campaign reflects on the fact that women today are empowered to succeed—they lead, create, invent, win gold medals, shatter glass ceilings, and more. However, with so much left to be done when it comes to the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer, we are Not Done Yet.
“With awareness messaging at high volume during the month of October, one could get the sense that the box is checked when it comes to breast cancer. But with women still dying from breast and ovarian cancer, the work is not done yet,” said Lindsay Avner, Bright Pink founder and CEO. “Our campaign is designed to get women talking about breast and ovarian health in a positive, proactive, action-oriented way.”
AXA, a leading financial protection company, is the exclusive partner for the campaign, helping to advance the conversation. This October, AXA will donate $1 (up to $15,000) to Bright Pink for every post on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #NotDoneYet.
“AXA is committed to helping women reach their financial goals, but we are not done yet,” said Faith Frank, president of the AXA Foundation. “We’re excited to join Bright Pink and empower women to take control of both their physical and financial health.”
To further generate engagement, Twitter has collaborated with Bright Pink to donate a branded emoji to support the #NotDoneYet campaign. From September 28 to October 31, every time the hashtags #NotDoneYet and #BrightPink are Tweeted, a specially designed emoji of a pink bra will appear.
“This is a campaign focused on inspiring women to take action, not just generating awareness,” continued Avner. “We hope women all over the country will join us in declaring we’re #NotDoneYet and go on to make use of our digital resources, including AssessYourRisk.org and ExploreYourGenetics.org.”
