A message from our founder, Emille Mendoza:
My mum is someone who is furiously strong and brave; I witnessed this in 2014 after a loss in our family. However, I never imagined that my mother would ever be diagnosed with breast cancer. This became a reality in 2016 and we're so fortunate to say, she won her battle.
My mum's strength to battle breast cancer was inspirational. Her strength was inspiring, just like so many other members of my family who have also fought this cancer.
October is breast cancer awareness month and I'm excited to announce that we have partnered with Breast Cancer Network Australia, to raise funds for their incredible organisation. BCNA was founded off the vision for no one to feel alone through their experience of breast cancer, and this is exactly what they did to help my mum through her battle. Their support towards my mum and my family, really helped us get through that period. At Boracay Skin, we want to help BCNA to continue supporting hundreds of other families who need their support.
From October 26th - 1st November, all profits from the sales of the Rose Gold Shimmering Body Oil will be donated to Breast Cancer Network Australia. During this time, our aim is to raise $1,500 - $2,000 to help BCNA and families being affected by Breast Cancer. To learn more about Breast Cancer Network Australia, you can visit them at bcna.org.au
Update: Thank you to everyone who donated! We ended up raising over $2,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia.
