What is The Feel
Your Boobies Foundation?
The Foundation is
a non-profit 501(c)(3) breast cancer organization, started in 2004.
Our mission is to use media and other unconventional methods to
remind young women to “feel their boobies”.
Why are you doing this?
Our Founder, Leigh
Hurst, was diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 33 with breast cancer.
She felt a lump that the doctors didn’t simply by “feeling her
boobies” (not through a traditional self-breast exam). The
Foundation is Leigh’s personal mission to share her story and “feel
your boobies” message with other young women to encourage proactive
Where does the money come from to support your campaign?
Foundation and Reminder Campaign is funded by donations and
Are you affiliated with any other breast cancer organization?
Your Boobies Foundation is not affiliated with any other breast
cancer organization. We are a grassroots organization run by Leigh
Hurst and hourly workers as funding allows.
Can I donate to The Feel Your Boobies Foundation?
Yes, we would not be
in existence without any and all donations. Donations can be made
through our website or by mail: Feel Your Boobies Foundation, PO Box
41, Middletown, PA 17057
Can my organization/company partner with The Feel Your Boobies
We are always open to
corporate partners/sponsors looking to fund our campaign. Ideal
partners are those organizations/companies whose goal is to 1) help
us by providing additional financial support for our campaign and 2)
spread our message to their existing customers/followers. We cannot
commit to marketing all partnerships to our followers and if this is
a primary goal of the partnership then it likely isn’t a good match
I have a product I’d like to sell and donate a portion to the Feel
Your Boobies Foundation. Can I market my item to your followers?
We welcome all support
and appreciate those business owners who would like to donate a
portion of a product to service to the Foundation. Unfortunately due
to the amount of requests we get to do this, we are not able to
market these promotions to our followers. Success of the
product-based fundraisers should not depend on whether or not we
market the promotion to our followers.
I’m planning a
fundraiser to support the Feel Your Boobies Foundation, can you send
me free materials?
We love it when
community based groups and individuals want to support our campaign
and we do our best to be supportive in their efforts. For community
events supporting our Foundation, we do offer a FREE Donation Box
Kit option that includes a Donation Box, 25 Reminder Cards, and a
disposable banner that can be used to spread our message at your
here to submit a request for a FREE Donation Box Kit.
Can The Feel Your Boobies Foundation sponsor my event?
The Foundation does
not sponsor or provide money to any outside organizations or events.
All funds we receive are used to create our Reminder Campaign and
Can The Feel Your Boobies Foundation attend my upcoming event?
The Foundation focuses
solely on the creation of our online campaign because we can reach
the most people with our message this way. Due to this, our budget
does not allow for us to devote resources to time and travel to
attend community events. We do however, appreciate your desire to
support us and hope that our supporters understand that our mission
is to create a media campaign and that time and resources can only
be dedicated to this effort.
Can I obtain
free materials from The Feel Your Boobies Foundation to support my
are non-profit and grassroots, unfortunately we do not have the
funds to provide free materials to satisfy all the requests we
receive. Please see the

Outreach Program that provides free materials to approved

Feel Your Boobies Foundation, please submit a request for our
