For the third year in a row the Breast Cancer Research Fund will receive five percent of profits from the sale of PlatinumCode’s pink products
MINNEAPOLIS, November 5, 2015 – PlatinumCode, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specimen identification and collection products for the healthcare industry, announced in September, 2015 that they had committed five percent of their profits on the sale of eligible pink products to support breast cancer awareness. In making the announcement, PlatinumCode launched various marketing efforts to help support the cause, resulting in a boost in the sale of pink items.
As of Friday, October 31, PlatinumCode indicated that they anticipated a larger donation than they originally expected to PlatinumCode’s charity of choice, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
“Our team has been working hard to get pink supplies to our customers,” said PlatinumCode Sales Manager, Ray Bernard, “and our customers are thrilled to be part of such a great cause.”
PlatinumCode chose to once again donate to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a foundation focused on providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation currently directs 91 cents of every dollar towards breast cancer research and awareness programs.
“The decision to once again donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation was easy,” said PlatinumCode Chief Revenue Officer, Ron Griffith, “For a third year in a row, we have the confidence that our donation will be put to good use, and this year, a generous donor is matching all donations.”
