Keep-A-Breast is a non-profit dedicated to ending breast cancer. Their official mission is:

“…to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support. Through art events, educational programs and fundraising efforts, we seek to increase breast cancer awareness among young people so they are better equipped to make choices and develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being.”

Their most popular campaign involves the breast casting of art, music, and action sports celebrities. Yes that’s right. Plaster casting the breasts of female surfers, skaters, artists, and musicians. After the casts dry, they’re painted and auctioned off on Ebay.


Since that campaign has done so well, they’ve branched out launching… “the Music for Awareness program earlier this year, challenging musicians and promoters to step out of the box and make a difference through benefit concerts supporting the Keep A Breast Foundation’s youth outreach efforts. This program provides bands with a unique way to inspire fans and increase breast cancer awareness and prevention.”

“Shot in the Pit” is a showcase of photographs taken by Erin Caruso at Vans Warped Tour. Caruso “has donated over 45 images to the Keep A Breast Foundation. Unite the United will facilitate an online auction of images from the exhibition alongside music memorabilia and celebrity breast casts including Katy Perry beginning November 26. 100% of the proceeds generated from the touring exhibition and the online auction will be donated to the Keep A Breast Foundation’s youth awareness and outreach efforts.”

This is definitely a worthy cause. So come out and support it. RSVP HERE! And if you’re not in San Francisco, the show is touring around so check out an event near you.
