LETTERS: 'Read Pink' effect felt more than by money donation

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Daily Post donated $5,493.40 to the American Cancer Society from proceeds from its “Read Pink” edition published for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

What a great partner in the fight against cancer the Gwinnett Daily Post is. Because of your support, we have saved lives. It’s that simple.

The contribution of the proceeds from the pink edition of the Daily Post will go a long way in providing life-giving support to cancer patients. But beyond the financial contributions the Daily Post provides to the American Cancer Society, the impact you have on our community through the awareness provided year-round is incalculable.

We will never know how many lives have been saved because you choose to present information on detection, prevention and treatment of many kinds of cancer. The “Read Pink” edition is a prime example.

Your newspaper is a shining example of what corporate and civic responsibility should like like in our country.
