Lauren combines fashion with philanthropy again! The Pink Pony Fund was established at the Ralph Lauren Foundation and is supported by funds raised through the Pink Pony Collection. Ralph Lauren launched the Pink Pony Fund initiative after the death of his friend Nina Hyde battle with breast cancer. Ms. Hyde was fashion editor at the The Washington Post.
The Pink Pony Collection supports breast cancer programs for "early diagnosis, education, treatment and research and is dedicated to bringing patient navigation and quality cancer care to medically underserved communities." Ten percent (10%) of proceeds from Pink Pony Collection products benefit the Pink Pony Fund.
“Breast cancer is not just a woman’s issue - it affects all of us, the brothers, husbands, fathers, children and friends. Pink Pony is our effort in the fight against cancer,” Lauren said.
