The pink ribbon specialty plate for
cars was released in October 2008. Over 15,000 plates have now been issued,
raising over $400,000 for programs here in Maine. Now an effort is under way to
offer breast cancer specialty plates to the motorcycle community.
First, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles
requires 500 reservations to start printing this plate! Please help us reach
our goal of 500 reservations.
Here's how the specialty motorcycle
plate program works:
- A minimum of 500 Maine residents must pre-order the
- Early registrants will receive a voucher in the mail.
- The BMV will begin to produce the motorcycle plates.
- The breast cancer awareness motorcycle plates will then
be available for general order at all BMV branches.
Just like the companion specialty
plate for automobiles, the proceeds from this effort will be split equally
between three organizations: the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition's Support Service Fund, the Maine Cancer Foundation
for their Women’s Cancer Fund, and the Maine
Breast and Cervical Health Program for their Mammogram Fund.
100% of the money raised will stay
