Transforming Communities-Fulfilling Our Purpose
"Increasing our Collective Impact by Valuing our Linked Individuality"
One month ago today, Hurricane Dorian made landfall on the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas and a day later hit Grand Bahama Island. An estimated 13,000 homes were damaged by the storm’s wrath and 70,000 people have been left homeless according to the United Nations.
Under LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief, The Links Foundation immediately mobilized to contribute to the relief efforts. Link sisters and chapters also quickly began sending critical goods for those affected by Hurricane Dorian as part of the first phase of our humanitarian aid.
We are now moving into the second phase of our disaster relief efforts and will begin accepting monetary donations. The LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief Fund has been established. Any amount contributed individually or by a chapter to The Links Foundation, Incorporated will transform the lives of the thousands of Bahamians impacted by the storm.
To make a contribution to the LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief Fund, please click the button below or visit our national website to make an online donation. Donations can also be made via check and sent to:
The Links Foundation, Incorporated
Attn: LinksHelp for Humanity: Bahamas Relief Fund
Monetary donations will be directed to the Nassau, Bahamas Chapter to support displaced families, and women and children in need. All donations will be acknowledged by The Links Foundation, Incorporated.
All help is greatly appreciated.

Everyone’s breasts are different, and your breasts can change with age and at different times of the month. It’s important to get to know how your breasts normally look and feel so it will be easier to spot if there are any unusual changes for you.
If you do spot any unusual changes to your breasts you should get them checked out by your doctor.
Finding out about breast cancer signs and symptoms can help you understand what breast changes to look out for.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of finding breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
We're fundraising to find a cure for women's cancers!
