Marie Keating Foundation
.......Making Cancer Less Frightening by Enlightening.
The Marie Keating Foundation was founded following the death of Marie Keating, mother of five including singer Ronan Keating. The charity educates men and women in relation to each of the key cancers: breast, cervical, skin, lung, prostate, bowel and testicular. The focus of its work is on cancers that are affected by lifestyle choices and early detection as key preventative measures. As it receives no government funding the Foundation relies purely on fundraising to provide its services, including public, workplace and schools awareness campaigns.
Pentel is an official corporate partner to Marie Keating Foundation, whose collective aim is to ‘enlighten not frighten’ and who are the leading voice in cancer information and awareness in Ireland.
To support the foundation Pentel launched a special edition pink barrelled EnerGel Xm gel roller pen with quick drying ink. For every pen it sells Pentel will donate €0.30 (£0.25) to Marie Keating Foundation. Following the success of the EnerGel Xm in Ireland Pentel introduced a special edition pink EnerGel Tradio. With a distinctive pocket clip and shaped barrel it’s an attractive pen and for each one sold Pentel will donate €0.25 (£0.20) to the charity.
Pentel’s special pink pens can be found in high street and independent retailers in Ireland. Show your support and help fight against cancer.
