Buying NovusOffice products in February will benefit breast cancer
Feb 14, 2011
NovusOffice, which sells software suites for spreadsheet, database, and other office needs, is partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in February to donate money towards breast cancer research, according to the NBCF.
Throughout February, 10 percent of revenue from every Novus software product will go to the NBCF, and consumers will receive a similar discount as part of the company's "Give 10 - Get 10" promotion.
“I remember first contacting Janelle Hail in 1999 to organize a fundraiser for what became the first of three NBCF hospitals in Chicago,” Tom Uskup, President of NovusOffice, told NBCF. “And over the years I’ve enjoyed watching NBCF grow to some 87 hospital programs across the USA. Now, I’m excited to help NBCF again.”
According to its website, Novus markets itself as "a smart alternative to Microsoft Office." Its products are based on Open Source, according to NBCF.
One in eight women will develop breast cancer in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Regular exercise and mammograms can greatly reduce the risks of breast cancer.
