Since 2010, Streamlight Inc. has donated $867,000 in proceeds from its pink line of lights to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), a not-for-profit organization seeking to prevent and cure breast cancer. The cumulative donations have resulted in more than 17,000 research hours.
In 2022, the company donated $21,500 from sales of the pink Nano Light key chain light, the pink Siege AA ultra-compact lantern, and the pink Strion LED tactical light. For each of the lights, Streamlight donates $1, $2 and $5, respectively.
According to BCRF estimates, a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer every two minutes. More than 43,000 women and 500 men will die from the disease this year. Because of research conducted by organizations like BCRF, deaths from breast cancer have decreased by 43 percent in the last three decades.
“Streamlight is very proud to have provided continuous support over the years to BCRF, resulting in such a significant number of research hours,” said Streamlight Chief Revenue Officer Michael F. Dineen. “Several of our employees are among those who are breast cancer survivors, which is why we decided to create a line of pink flashlights and donate a portion of the proceeds to BCRF to help find a cure for this disease,” he said.
