Giving back is important to us. Even though we are a young company we want philanthropy to be an integral part of our culture and our mission. This month we're starting with a cause that is important to women: heart disease. February is American Heart Month and heart disease is the leading cause of death amongst women, with more women dying from it than from cancer each year. It also disproportionately impacts women of color.
This month we are donating 10% of our proceeds to Go Red for Women® and the American Heart Association®. These organizations focus on education and outreach to make sure women understand the risks, but also to make sure they understand that prevention is possible. 80% of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education.
