SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations kicked off its partnership and promotion with the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) in mid-September, and recently partnered with six vendors to further benefit the cause.
When customers purchase any of the select products, 10 percent of proceeds goes to NBCC, and the choices are: the Toyfriend Starlet, Jimmyjane Form 3 and Form 4, Rocks-Off Groovy Chick, OhMiBod Better Than Chocolate, LELO Siri and Gigi, and GV Wholesale’s Butterfly Kiss, all in pink. Online shoppers can see the selections on the GiVe Partner page, and make an additional gift if they choose.
“The idea of working with our vendors to make a difference was so natural, and everyone was delighted to participate,” Good Vibes Senior Buyer Coyote Days said. “We just couldn’t wait for October to offer these high quality, ecorotic items in a way that actually affects positive change. And that makes everyone feel good!”
Founded in 1991, the National Breast Cancer Coalition is a national grassroots organization whose mission is to end breast cancer by focusing on three main goals: research, access and influence.
According to Good Vibes, NBCC links hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals into a dynamic, diverse coalition to achieve its goals and to give breast cancer a l voice in Washington, D.C. and state capitals, in laboratories and health care institutions and in local communities everywhere.
Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen says, "We're especially excited that this organization's terrific work includes advocacy training so that women themselves be such a powerful influence for fighting breast cancer. Just as Good Vibrations' focus has always been empowering women to be the true experts about their own sexuality, NBCC makes sure women's voices and experience are central to this critical health issue."
