reports on how the Carlisle Collection has designed a scarf for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation every year for the past 18 years. The scarves have raised a total of $1.7 million dollars which has gone towards research.
"A lot of women going through chemotherapy actually wear these scarves when they've lost their hair or wearing a cap so it's kind of dual fold. It's supporting the foundation and then they can also pass it on to a friend who's going through the same thing. So it's been very meaningful," Coleman Cooper, of the Carlisle Collection, told the news source.
The Carlisle Collection accepts a $125 donation for the scarves and all proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The Susan G. Komen has raised more than $1.5 billion dollars for breast cancer research over the last 28 years.
