About The Estée Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign Since 1992, when Evelyn H. Lauder, Senior Corporate Vice President of The Estée Lauder Companies, co-created the Pink Ribbon with SELF magazine as a symbol of breast health and launched The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, a bridge has been built across cultures and languages that has had a lasting impact on the world. Millions have been inspired by Mrs. Lauder’s vision of a world without breast cancer and The Estée Lauder Companies has raised millions of dollars for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative, clinical and translational research and finding a cure in our lifetime.
The Pink Ribbon, which has become the unifying symbol of breast health since its creation, sends a strong message of hope. It needs no translation and transcends all languages and boundaries. Around the world, people of every age and race recognize the significance of the ubiquitous Pink Ribbon. By the end of 2009, The BCA Campaign will have distributed over 100 million Pink Ribbons and millions of informational brochures around the world to send the strong awareness message of the importance of breast health and early detection.
