Breast cancer donations – level 2
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, and many organizations and charities collect money to help fight with the disease.
The pink ribbon is the official symbol of breast cancer awareness. People who wear the pink color or the pink ribbon show support for women with breast cancer. People donate money to charities and buy products with the symbol. They do it because they believe that the money will go to breast cancer research.
Unfortunately, it is not always true. In the US, no law says how the charities or organizations use the money from the donations. It is possible that some charities do not spend any money at all.
Difficult words: charity (an organization which gives money, food or other help to people who need it), awareness (when people know that something exists, and they have information about it), donate, donation (to give money or things to help somebody who needs them; the money or things people give to help others).
