The pink boxes are back at Hungry Howie's, which means it is October and for every pizza or Howie Brownie™ sold throughout the month, a portion of the sales go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
For the eighth year in a row, Hungry Howie's is changing its pizza boxes to pink and will include the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) logo on each box. Love, Hope & Pizza originated as a way to show love for the communities Hungry Howie's serves and now honors those who have fought breast cancer.
As of September 2016, more than $1.5 million has been donated to the NBCF in order to help and inspire hope for those affected by this devastating disease through early detection, education and support services.
Along with its pink boxes, Hungry Howie's also has Love, Hope & Pizza t-shirts that can be purchased online, and bracelets and bandanas available at participating Hungry Howie's locations. Net proceeds from the t-shirt sales will also go to NBCF.
Consumers also have the chance to take the Love, Hope & Pizza pledge. You can do this by ordering a Hungry Howie's pizza, and then film yourself supporting the pledge and enjoying your pizza. Then challenge a friend to participate when you're done. Finally, share your video on social media using the hashtag #LoveHopePizza.
An estimated 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime while 1 in 1,000 men will be affected by the disease as well. NBCF has been helping those with breast cancer since 1991. The mission of the organization is to help and inspire those who are affected by breast cancer.
NBCF provides free mammograms for women in the U.S. through its network of hospitals.
When you make a donation, whether directly to the foundation, purchasing Love & Hope apparel, or by ordering a pizza or Howie Brownie™, you are helping in the fight against breast cancer.
