October is the month where so many people (bless their hearts) take steps to promote breast cancer awareness or to raise funds for breast cancer research. For my part, along with an annual donation to breast cancer awareness groups, I purchase pink products and redeem Yoplait pink lids. I also created and help maintain an awareness blog called Breast Cancer Resources in Charles County, MD.
In addition ... I recently held the Sam's Club Pink Promotion Gift Card Giveaway which not only promoted breast cancer awareness, but also gave readers the chance to enter a drawing for a gift card. It has now officially ended, and the winner is Rachelle Christensen. (Congrats, Rachelle!)
Still, my efforts are small in comparison to what some are able to do. I just received news from MyBlogSpark about a woman who painted her house pink. Now that's going whole hog!
What MyBlogSpark and Yoplait Say
Head over to Facebook.com/Yoplait and the Save Lids to Save Lives link to watch Yoplait and the Denver Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure honor long-time breast cancer volunteer Joanie Lucas.
Joined by neighbors, volunteers and Yoplait, Joanie painted her entire home bright pink to remind people that the fight against breast cancer starts right next door! The house will remain pink for the month of October to symbolize women across the country who are working to make a difference in their neighborhoods and communities through programs like Yoplait´s Save Lids to Save Lives and their local Komen Race for the Cure. During the webcast, Joanie Lucas, Komen representative Michele Ostrander, and Yoplait representative Berit Morse discuss Joanie´s efforts and simple ways people can support the cause.
What I Say
October has just started, so please take a little time to support breast cancer awareness and to help raise funds for breast cancer research and support groups. Breast cancer patients and survivors the world over will thank you!
And again, congratulations to Rachelle Christensen, the winner of the Sam's Club gift card.
