When VIM & VIGR founder, Michelle Huie, was 15, she lost her mother to breast cancer. Unfortunately, this isn’t uncommon – according to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc (NBCF), 1 in 8 American women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives, meaning that almost everyone reading this knows one or more people who have experienced this disease. For Michelle and our team here at VIM & VIGR, this is unacceptable. Our mission is to improve the health and happiness of women everywhere, and this was a cause that we were determined to get involved in.
So we did.
This year we were incredibly excited to launch two limited edition Ribbons compression socks, as well as a partnership with NBCF! This organization works to help and inspire hope in those affected by breast cancer through early detection (including providing FREE mammograms to women across all 50 states), education and support services – pretty amazing, if you ask us. We’ve been donating $5 of every pair of Ribbons socks purchased to help support NBCF’s efforts, and have already surpassed $10,000 (and counting)! This partnership will aid in keeping women across the country on their feet and educated about their health, and we couldn’t be happier.
Our Ribbons compression socks are made with premium cotton, offering a 15-20 mmHg compression level and are available in White & Pink and Black & Pink styles. Join us in supporting and inspiring all those affected by breast cancer!
