FAQ

How long does this event run?

During breast cancer month, which is October, the ribbons can be supported.

Where do the proceeds go?

The proceeds will be used to continue to expand Pink Ribbon vzw's projects in the field of prevention, early detection and psychosocial care for patients and former patients and their families. 

On the general Pink Support page https://pink-ribbon.be/steun-ons/kom-in-actie-en-laat-je-hart-spreken you can always set up an action to benefit Pink Ribbon.

Ribbon

Can I still send in a design?

No, no more designs can be submitted.

Which design was finally chosen/who designed the ribbon?

Three candidates had a similar idea. Their designs were bundled into one ribbon. 

Isn't it unfair that a certain design is always at the top?

This is not the case. To prevent a particular ribbon from always being at the top, each time the page is refreshed, a new name will appear at the top.

Why are (former) breast cancer patients suddenly the ones who designed the ribbon and no longer a well-known person?

This year Pink Ribbon Belgium exists 15 years. For this anniversary year, we wanted to give a voice to (ex-)breast cancer patients. By designing their own authentic band, they got the chance to tell their story.

Why does the ribbon always have to be pink?

The ribbon is the international symbol for increased breast awareness. It provides additional awareness about breast cancer. Pink is internationally recognised as the colour in the fight against breast cancer. Therefore, pink accents are still used in the ribbon.

Donations

Do I receive a tax certificate for a donation?

On the ‘Make a donation’ page (https://donate.kbs-frb.be/actions/F-PinkRibbon) you can make a donation to the Pink Ribbon Fund via the King Baudouin Foundation, which is subsequently tax deductible. Donations made directly on the platform are not tax deductible. 

Attention: donations are only tax deductible as of €40. After a number of days this donation will also show up on the page.

Do you have to register if you want to donate?

No, sponsors do not have to register first.

Is there a minimum amount (donation)?

The minimum amount to donate is €1.

How much does the ribbon cost?
