Our aim is to help cancer survivors regain their self-esteem and to feel beautiful once again. It's our way of letting them know that our hearts and thoughts are with them, that they are not alone, and that they are truly amazing.

Approximately 12% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer. No doubt, each of us has known a family member, friend, or coworker who has faced such a diagnosis. It is because of this shared experience and connection that we believe it is our responsibility-as a company and as individuals-to raise awareness and to help those in need.

Treatment for breast cancer can be a painful experience, and the hair loss associated with chemotherapy can compound an already stressful, emotional time. Over the past decade, Specialty Commerce Corp has donated more than 68,000 wigs, hairpieces, hats, and turbans to women's cancer charities and service providers so that women with hair loss due to chemotherapy might reclaim a part of themselves and their everyday, pre-cancer lives.

In addition to our own significant monetary and in-kind contributions to these many worthy organizations, we also donate returned nonrefundable clearance and final sale merchandise on our customers' behalf. In these cases, each customer receives notification of her donation, as well as a receipt to use for charitable-deduction purposes at tax time. Specialty Commerce Corp does not receive any tax credit, financial gain, or other benefit for such donations.
