Review for Save The Ta-Tas Foundation, West Hills, CA, USA
Cancer sucks. I think we can all agree on that one. I am always supportive of companies and products that give back to Cancer research, regardless of the form. I love that many, many companies and fine upstanding citizens of the world – such as yourself – are banding together to beat this monster. However – I especially love it when someone can donate to the cause to cure cancer – and do it with a sense of humor. This is why I'm happy to recommend Save the Ta Ta's First of all, because calling boobs “Ta Ta’s” is funny. I don’t care who you are. It reminds me of being four years old and having my parents change “adult” words into cutesy things so that I can (or in most cases cannot) understand. Calling boobs TaTa’s is funny – and it gives me warm fuzzy feelings from childhood – it’s a win-win. Secondly – they do have some awesome products. The one I’m absolutely in love with is the lip balm. (Stop – do not EVEN let your minds go there…) I’m allergic to Menthol, and most chap stick products have it in them…or they are fruity flavored and really do nothing for your lips but make you smell like an orchard. The Save the TaTa’s brand is All Natural, smells of honey, and is only $3.50 a stick. I got mine at the local Harley Davidson Store. They also have shirts, onesies, key chains, water bottle belt clips, an entire line of soaps….the list goes on and on. There is something TaTa’s for every budget. Lastly – and most importantly – Save the Tata’s is a not for profit organization committed to a cure. Every single sale creates a donation to the cause. And every single penny counts. So, that is why I love Save The Ta Ta's. In fact, Save the Ta Ta's may have saved my life. It's their products that reminded me to do my own self screening. I am currently awaiting biopsy results from my own Ta Ta surgery. My sister is a survivor, and so is my cousin. This is a very important cause. In additon, my life has been touched by cancer in several ways – not just breast cancer…and I truly believe this monster has got to be stopped. Every little bit helps. And while cancer is a very serious thing, we can learn from TaTa’s…laughter heals. Every moment counts. And… an existence to bring joy and healing to the world is not a bad thing
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
An awareness campaign started by my blog - http://someonewillbuythis.com - in which we ran a promotion to win a Save the Ta Ta's shirt by simply sharing your story of survival or strength. In addition, as mentioned above, I may be a survivor.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the ability to take something serious and give it a personality - something that makes it a little less terrifying but still brings awareness to the breast cancer issue.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind, courteous, generous and very helpful. They take the time to understand, and are more than willing to help you to spread awareness. The main goal and focus for them is to get the word out so funds can be raised.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
heighten the awareness ten fold. I know personally several women who have done their first breast exam because of Ta Ta's. If they had the funds, I can only imagine the reach they'd be able to achieve.
