Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

 In October 2021, Janet & Jo. raised funds to support the American Cancer Society's breast cancer treatment and prevention programs, by donating the proceeds from our Saved nail lacquer to the American Cancer Society.
 
The Janet & Jo. 'Saved' breast cancer awareness promotion ran from October 1 - 31, 2021. This initiative allowed Janet & Jo. to provide customers and the public with educational resources and materials surrounding breast health, best practices and recommended screening methods. This also allowed the Janet & Jo. team to engage with the community at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, where we donated a signature self care box to a lucky raffle winner.
 
This experience provided Janet & Jo. with the opportunity to raise awareness on the importance of early detection through sharing our company story and the impact breast cancer has had on our Founder, Kendra Woolridge's family with our community, while raising funds for a great cause.
