OtterBox – The Force And Strength Behind Breast Cancer Campaign

We didn’t really need another reason to like OtterBox, they have already proved themselves many times over with protecting our gear. They are one of our very favorite smart phone protection manufacturers and have now proved they are not just about protecting your mobile device, they are also committed to protecting us all from breast cancer, whether directly or indirectly. They have stumped up $175,000 for a one-year renewal donation to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

The OtterBox CEO, Curt Richardson explaine, "We remain committed in our fight against breast cancer. The message of strength is one that is important to me, our employees and our customers, so we look forward to supporting the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade in its mission".

Funds support cutting-edge research to find a cure for or prevent breast cancer as well as programs that enable all patients to access quality care, regardless of ability to pay.

“The Avon Foundation greatly appreciates OtterBox’s exceptional  support of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade during the past year, as well as the enthusiastic commitment of OtterBox customers who bought a Strength Commuter Series® pink-and-white case. The life-saving funds OtterBox  raised will help to support breast cancer research and access to care organizations across the United States,” said Carol Kurzig, president of the Avon Foundation for Women. “We’re thrilled that the release of these new cases will extend OtterBox’s generous commitment and continue its efforts to raise important funds to support the fight against breast cancer.”


This year, OtterBox will expand its Strength line to new devices with the hope of increasing its donation and helping to salute the strength demonstrated every day by those battling breast cancer:

It takes strength when the diagnosis is made. Strength to share the news with loved ones. Strength to endure treatments. Strength to keep moving forward. Strength to wait for test results. Strength to receive a clean bill of health. Strength to carry on. Strength to embrace the future. That is what OtterBox supports — the whole story — every moment of being human and carrying on in strength.

OtherBox, we salute you.
