“I’ve been an active participant over the past several years in Lee National Denim Day through various organizations and started a stand-alone campaign through my company, Paper Chaser in 2013. There are currently more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today and I couldn’t be happier to report my mother is a survivor.” said Melissa St. Clair, Owner, Paper Chaser. “I encourage other small business owners to participate as every dollar helps fight breast cancer, a cause that is very important to many of us.”
St. Clair, Owner of Paper Chaser challenges other small business owners in her professional networks to help raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer by displaying/incorporating a pink ribbon in their business Facebook page profile or cover photo or display a pink ribbon in the window of their storefront during the month of October.
