Keep A Breast Foundation
Our mission is to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.
Today, Keep A Breast demonstrates a new nonprofit model. It is one that assumes that today's young people are articulate, critical and ready to establish their identities through meaningful action. They are ready to be engaged and educated. Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB) communities are defined by the contributions of young people. Proof of this is in the stories received by young people inspired to act by our programs and campaigns. In Pennsylvania in 2010, two girls age 12 and 13 were suspended from school for wearing KAB awareness bracelets (Keep A Breast Foundation is also the engine and minds of the I (HEART) BOOBIES bracelets that adorned millions of wrists). They sued their school district, organized a response campaign and rallied for the support of the ACLU. In 2011, a U.S. District Judge ruled in their favor.
