he M.I. Hummel Company, known for its most beloved collectibles, has been involved with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF) for over 5 years through the popular Hope figurine series. A portion of the proceeds of every sale from the Hope series, to date over $80,000, goes to the NBCF to support breast cancer research and education.
“We are proud to partner with the M.I. Hummel Company,” says NBCF Founder & CEO, Janelle Hail. “Their Hope collection represents the reason NBCF has been a long-time admirer of the M.I. Hummel figurines. This collection gives hope to those impacted by breast cancer as it helps NBCF to fulfill its mission to save lives.”
The donations are made possible by M.I. Hummel collectors who’ve rallied around the program, fallen in love with the figurines, and purchased them as gifts, beacons of hope, and treasured mementos.
This year, the M.I. Hummel Company is proud to introduce Hope for Tomorrow, just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This new work of art will bring even more hope – and love – to the struggle against breast cancer. It is a beautiful, hand-made in Germany, figurine depicting a girl shielded by an oversized umbrella, with a hand outstretched to see if the rainstorm has ended, and of course it comes with a pink ribbon base, a universal symbol of the fight for a cure. This appealing new figurine will lift both spirits and determination to help find a cure.
Manufaktur Rödental continues the M.I. Hummel tradition in the same factory where the figurines were originally created over 75 years ago. A team of skilled craftspeople work with skill and loving care, ensuring the artistic excellence that is the hallmark of these precious creations. Today, M.I. Hummel figurines remain the world’s most beloved collectible, a tribute to the spirit of childhood and the talent of a brilliant artist, Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel.
