The M&R Companies Launch the “Press for a Cure” Campaign to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The M&R Companies has launched the “Press for a Cure” campaign to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month for October 2019. Press for a Cure is a donation initiative to raise funds for breast cancer research. Through their partnerships with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® and Delta Apparel, M&R will be promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month through the month of October, beginning with an auction on eBay.com for limited-edition pink KRUZER™ Manual Screen Printing Presses. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of the presses will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF)
The auctions will be held throughout October, which will culminate with a pink KRUZER on display at the PRINTING United Expo in Dallas, Texas, U.S.A. from October 23 – 25, 2019 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas. The KRUZER will then be shipped to the highest bidder directly from PRINTING United.
M&R will also be selling screen-printed breast cancer awareness garments at PRINTING United, with 100% of the proceeds of the garment sales to benefit the NBCF. 1,500 t-shirts have been generously donated to M&R by Delta Apparel.
“M&R is proud to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation with the Press for a Cure initiative,” said Peter Walsh, Executive Vice President at M&R. “Our hopes are to raise awareness and a considerable donation for important research and development.”
Press for a Cure will be supported with a website, social media posts on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, industry-wide emails, printed banners, signage and literature through October 31st, 2019. The website for Press for a Cure is https://www.mrprint.com/press-for-a-cure.
