Two things stand out about Norwex Consultants: They have a heart for others. And they know how to party.
And every October those two things become more apparent than ever when all across Australia and New Zealand come together in support of a cause that touches many—the fight against breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Norwex Consultants are rising up like never before to fight this devasting disease.
Breast cancer is a formidable foe: Every 15 seconds a woman is diagnosed with this form of cancer, and an estimated 1 in 8 women and 1 in 833 men will get breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s why Norwex is donating $1 to the Norwex Foundation for a Brighter Future for every Norwex Party held during October.* The goal is 7,500 parties, and the donation will be shared among two organisations devoted to defeating cancer and serving those who have it:
The McGrath Foundation raises money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses who provide invaluable support and care to women and men experiencing breast cancer. From diagnosis right throughout treatment, McGrath Breast Care Nurses are available to help individuals and their families for free and with no referral. Support is absolutely free. Thanks to our generous donations from the community, corporate partners and the government there is nothing to pay and nothing to claim back.
The Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand's vision is zero deaths from breast cancer. The money they receive helps them to achieve this vision through; early detection education, supporting those with breast cancer, research & medical grants and advocacy. This organisation helps raise awareness for breast cancer and educate the public about New Zealand's most common cancer for women. They offer support for anyone diagnosed with the disease through counselling. cancer rehab classes and an online community, and a breast nurse helpline.
It's always a good time to host a Norwex Party to and share the Mission of radically reducing chemicals in our homes. But there’s truly no better time than the month of October to make your Norwex Party count in the fight against cancer!
* For every Party submitted ($300 Party Sales and 1 booking) from midday October 1 to midday November 1, 2020 AEST, Norwex will donate $1, with a minimum of $7,500, in support of the selected organisations.
