In 2014, Noble Owl Popcorn expanded its popcorn varieties to include Pink Popcorn and we were proud to be popping for Southeast Wisconsin Susan G. Komen® Foundation. Between fall 2014 and summer 2015, Noble Owl Popcorn donated $1 from every bag sold to Komen to help support breast cancer research, and provide financial and emotional assistance.
Thanks to our loyal customers we quickly sold out of all 125 bags of our Pink Popcorn! We are so happy that the popcorn went over well and that were were able to donate $125 to Komen’s Southeast Wisconsin branch.
According to the Susan G. Komen® Foundation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and in 2014, an estimated 232,030 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. alone.
Susan G. Komen’s Mission: At Susan G. Komen, our mission is pretty simple: to save lives and end breast cancer forever. How we do it…well, that’s a bit more complex. We educate, support research, offer grants that provide financial and emotional assistance and advocate for better breast cancer policy. But in a broader sense, we empower others, ensure quality care for all, and invest in science to find the cures.
