September 25, 2014 // Franchising.com // MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – Hungry Howie's Pizza, a top-ten American pizza concept, continues its commitment to Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the 'Love, Hope & Pizza' campaign. During the month of October at all Hungry Howie's Pizza locations, pizza will be served in a light pink box embellished with the National Breast Cancer Foundation logo.
Additionally, for every pizza sold and for every story of love, hope and inspiration that is shared via social media; every new Facebook fan; and every photo tagged with #LOVEHOPEPIZZA; Hungry Howie's Pizza will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Fans of the brand also have the ability to purchase a Love, Hope & Pizza t-shirt online for $15.99, a rubber bracelet for $1 or a reusable shopping bag for $2 with all proceeds going directly to the fight against breast cancer.
