The Estée Lauder Companies’ 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

October is breast cancer awareness month and, to get the awareness started, Hyde Park Corner in Johannesburg was illuminated in pink to commemorate The Estée Lauder Companies’ 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign last Monday!

As part of its Global Landmark Illumination Initiative (where historical landmarks are illuminated in pink worldwide), The Estée Lauder Companies BCA Campaign is pleased to announce that, for the first time, Hyde Park Corner will be lit up in pink. Along with the Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Empire State Building in New York and other landmarks in Mumbai, Dubai, Warsaw, Chile, Milan and Munich, the first lighting of Hyde Park Corner supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month and helps focus attention on the importance of early detection and breast health.

Over the last 20 years, The Estée Lauder Companies BCA Campaign has been a leading voice for breast cancer awareness around the world. The BCA Campaign is active in more than 70 countries and has raised more than $58-million to support global research, education and medical services that revolve around breast cancer.

The Estée Lauder Companies’ 2015 BCA Campaign empowers people worldwide to take action to help defeat breast cancer with the call-to-action “Every Action Counts. What’s Yours?” This initiative celebrates all the things we do in the fight to cure breast cancer, and invites people to share how they take action on, and support lifesaving breast cancer research by making a donation to BCRF.

Beginning in October 2015, the global BCA Campaign will:
