Borghese cosmetics will donate 5% of the proceeds from a charity sale to the Hope Society for Cancer Care to promote the early checkup of breast cancer.
Gabrielle Ng, president for Asia region of the cosmetics maker, said all Borghese outlets in Taiwan are joining a charity sale from today to May 13 as a feature to celebrate Mother's Day.
The Hope Society for Cancer Care will launch a breast cancer checkup drive at the Kaohsiung Sogo Department Store on May 7. Doctors and nurses will be there to tell the women how to check their breasts for signs of the disease.
Earlier, Eleeza International Inc. and the society had also sponsored two similiar activities in Taipei to promote the drive.
