With Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) upon us, I wanted to let you know about the efforts of Sparkling ICE, a bold-flavor, zero-calorie sparkling mountain spring water and the fastest-growing beverage brand in the U.S.
As part of the Sparkling ICE mission to “Imagine a World Without Breast Cancer,” a Pink Ribbon is proudly displayed on its Pink Grapefruit flavor bottles all year long.
Throughout the year, Sparkling ICE donates a minimum of $25,000 to research facilities nationwide to help find a cure, in addition to aiding local affiliates and communities with more than $100,000 in donations annually.
By working closely with each community, Sparkling ICE allows them to select the charity right in their region that they would most like to offer the donations (i.e. Susan G. Komen Affiliates, Local/Regional Breast Cancer Research Foundations, etc.)
Sparkling ICE, a beverage of Talking Rain Company, is also a Susan G. Komen Puget Sound Affiliate Promise Partner, the highest tier of recognition awarded to corporations, foundations, and 3rd party fundraising organizations or events that provide exceptional financial or in-kind resources throughout the year to the Komen Puget Sound Affiliate.
