Nicci Boutiques Stands United Against Breast Cancer
Nicci Boutiques donated 10% on all pink items to PinkDrive this October for Breast Cancer
Awareness Month. The #NicciGivesBack campaign raised R50 610 in total for this non-profit
organisation that delivers much-needed health services to remote and disadvantaged areas.
“The funds raised through the Nicci campaign are instrumental in bringing free gender-
related cancer screening services to disadvantaged communities around South Africa,” says
Noelene Kotschan, CEO and Founder of PinkDrive.
PinkDrive powers South Africa’s first mobile Mammography Units and Educational Units.
“Nicci Boutiques support will keep our mobile units moving and reaching those with limited or
no access to medical services,” adds Noelene.
By actively participating in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Nicci increased awareness and
raised much-needed funds for breast cancer. Nicci is passionate about purposeful and
Nicci stands united against breast cancer, a disease that affects all races and class
structures. “We know that awareness alone is not the cure to breast cancer. Every effort
counts when it comes to a fight like this, where early detection is key, and healthcare access
is paramount to those battling the disease,” explains Niki Breger, Co-Founder of Nicci.
“The support from Nicci helps us achieve our vision to be the leading non-governmental
organisation dedicated to creating and promoting awareness about cancer and our mission
to promote awareness, early detection and screening for gender-related cancers in the
general population of South Africa, sharing the message that early detection will help to
prolong life,” says Noelene.
Nicci hopes to make a difference in the lives of women across South Africa. “We have seen
first-hand how change can be actioned. Having a corporate conscience enables businesses
to contribute to society. We encourage others to take on community-driven initiatives and
become change-makers,” explains Niki.
The Nicci brand plans to continue meaningful initiatives in the future. “As a predominantly
female-run business, our breast cancer initiative sits very close to all our hearts. We want to
continue helping where we can, in whatever capacity we can. By showing our support and
making valuable contributions we can assist in enabling a better tomorrow for the women of
today,” concludes Niki.
