About CFDA -  Fashion Targets Breast Cancer:

Fashion Targets Breast Cancer® (FTBC), a charitable initiative of the Council of Fashion Designers of America/CFDA Foundation, marshals the goodwill and services of every element of the fashion industry to raise public awareness and funds for the breast cancer cause, in the U.S. and internationally. The Fashion Targets Breast Cancer name and symbol were created by Ralph Lauren and subsequently entrusted to the CFDA Foundation. FTBC was first presented in the U.S. in the spring of 1994 during New York Fashion Week, and was formally launched in September 1994 at a special White House reception hosted by then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. During this initial campaign, 400,000 FTBC shirts were sold, raising $2 million to benefit the Nina Hyde Center for Breast Health at the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University Medical Center.  To date, nearly $50 million has been granted to breast cancer charities worldwide from FTBC campaigns. FTBC campaigns have been produced in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Japan and the United Kingdom. With the proceeds from these worldwide FTBC campaigns, the CFDA Foundation has helped to fund programs that provide access to reliable resources, breast health education, innovative information, and health care.
