What a great Charity! Had a great experience helping at their Golf event this year and was able to meet some amazing women that have been assisted through the Help Now Fund. Keep up the great work!

I did some digging and this is a TOTAL SCAM - the area code 333 does not exist. Please block the call.

My husband and I have both answered calls from this charity and had already donated when the latest call wanted to confirm my husband's previous donation. I asked my husband if he had committed to donating more and he said "No, I asked them to take us off their list". When I communicated that, the telemarketer said (and this is no lie): "How could he have gotten a call from us? We are just starting?". I have no idea what that was supposed to mean, but after politely telling him we were not interested 3 more times I had to hang up on him. How can we get OFF this annoying list?

Where to start with all the great work and mission at iGoPink? It is unique in the aspect of serving breast cancer patients in the here and now with financial assistance, beauty bags, scholarships and more. More importantly the passion of the staff and volunteers to educate about breast cancer prevention to younger women speaks multitudes about this organization. Continue keeping up the great work!

This non-profit serves women in one of the worst positions sometimes of their life. They provide them with financial assistance when they are in need to keep a roof over their head, they send out bags of Hope to lift the spirits of these women in a time where they feel like they have been defeated. But most importantly, they provide EDUCATION on how to prevent, and how to survive!! This is an amazing very SMALL group of women, fighting for others!!

BCCA is an amazing organization focused on improving the everyday lives of women going through breast cancer treatments. Their dedication to helping ladies out financially is why I will always come back to volunteer and donate. Great organization, great staff, great cause

The Breast Cancer Charities of America was there for my family when we were in need of guidance and direction for my aunt going through breast cancer. Their resources and friendly staff helped point us in the right direction and gave us the help we needed. Thank you!

I love BCCA so much, I volunteered for years and have had nothing but a great experience. The women they help with rent and utility bills is just fantastic. My own mom had breast cancer and has been positively touched by this organization.

I receive incessant calls from this organization multiple times a day, including after 9pm. It is a robocall. Calling back only connects you to a phone tree where a message can be left. Messages to be removed from the call list go unheeded. Calls also come from multiple numbers. I have no idea how this organization is allowed to operate in this manner. I will never donate to it.

I have received numerous calls from this "charity" over the past months. A woman identifying herself as "Sarah" comes off with this spiel ,.. but I warn you .... I have my own charity and am CIO here in Virginia, and I would NEVER approach any donor with the BS this group does. If you will not provide a credit card over phone, they will "send in the mail a pledge". WARNING!!!! I do not believe this group is at all ethical, and I have requested at least 10 - not exaggerating - 10 times to be removed from their list, but to not avail. DO NOT WASTE your money on them - give to the REAL breast cancer charities who really appreciate and need your donations. These people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. What a horrible sham to use on unsuspecting people with a disease that unfortunately took my mother's life. I detest anything to do with this group, and I implore you to report them to the official government agencies in Washington, DC. It is charities like this that give a bad name and reputation to honest, worthwhile charities such as mine and many others.

This organization is despicable! They call multiple times a day, leave no message, only to try again and again. I will NEVER give them money! Stop. Calling. Me!

They are scam artists...do not listen to them.

Do not donate to them. harassing phone calls. Very unprofessional,. If you wish to donate to a breast cancer fund there are many good ones out there. Susan B. Komen for example or American cancer Society

The phone calls from this organization are robotic in monotone. I felt as I were talking to a robot. Could not engage in a conversation as the voice would not take a breath for me to interject. This may cause them to change the program response. Try to enter in conversation and see what happens. Am not donating after reading other reviews of percentages going to charity. A lot of nonprofits have high expenses and overheads. Nonprofit means after expenses what is left goes to cause. Same during election groups. It's a field day.

After further research and being called several times a day. It is a scam. I will not give to such an organization. If you want to give , help a neighbor or friend who has breast cancer. We all know someone whether it be a family member or friend.

After a barrage, every evening, of late calls, I decided to answer the phone from The Breast Cancer Charities of America. A fast talking lady told me how hard it was to get a hold of me and after our conversation, I was switched over to another women who wanted a $30.00 pledge and my credit card number. I told her that she wasn't going to get my card number and that I would write a check. I got my first notice in the mail about a week ago and have decided to not support this charity when I just got my second notice today in the mail. The phone calls have not stopped since my initial conversation with them. They are a relentless group of people and I will not donate to them. I want the phone calls to stop!!!!

They are high pressure and downright abusive. They call a minimum of 3 times a day. I have tried to block their calls but they use another number. So glad I didn't give them my credit card number as they wanted me to do. I would never give to this type of organization. Most likely the positive reviews are from fellow scammers.

I get many calls and did independent research. According to several news investigations I saw, they are one of the worst charities in America, with less than 1% of donations going to actually help women with breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Charities of America have called me nonstop. I thought they would eventually give up but no such luck. I finally answered the phone. When I tried to ask questions about the organization, she wouldn't stop talking to let me say anything and then hung up on me. Apparently they are going to send me a donation request. I will not be sending a donation based on my experience and from reading some of the other comments.

Seems like a scam. I needed to speak to someone regarding my pledge but when calling the only phone number on the form, they are "never available" and I've tried all times of the day. The form i'm referring to requested that my pledge be automatically deducted each month. Wow that IS NOT going to happen. Such a shame.

Its a scam. Sham on the employees who not only waste money but taint all charitable giving.
