Today we’d like to share a great charity organization that is doing amazing work through the wedding industry. Brides Against Breast Cancer contributes to programs for cancer patients and their families. Their outreach and educational efforts during the “Nationwide Tour of Gowns” bridal shows around the country help ensure that people impacted by cancer have the resources and information they need in during their battle. From regular donations, gown donations, volunteerism and multiple different fundraising events… Brides Against Breast Cancer is making an exciting difference!
