Pink October is all around us!! As a breast cancer survivor, I KNOW how important it is to learn all you can about detection and treatment and how essential it is that a cure be found, soon! Here are a few suggestions of places to give that needed support:
*Look for products in your grocery stores....many have special PINK packaging and their producers will donate on your behalf to support research!
*PINK is all over the internet giving many opportunities to donate and valuable information that might save a life....read, learn and donate! Visit The Breast Cancer Site....click daily to give free mammograms to those who cannot afford one!
*PINK is on the airwaves! Television and radio are promoting the cause...listen and donate!
*PINK is all over the Make Mine Pink boutiques! Register for the Shop Hop, hunt for the PINK ribbons, enter to win wonderful prizes, shop at the MMP boutiques for PINK products! Many boutique owners have special limited edition PINK October products, offer discounted prices, or free shipping! Grandma G's and many others will donate a portion of all PINK October sales to Susan G. Komen Foundation! Get shopping!!
* The Susan G. Komen Foundation website has extensive information on preventive measures, research, fund-raising, and of course, will accept donations year round!
Remember, EVERY dollar counts! Each year brings us a little closer to learning how to prevent this terrible disease......let's make a difference by supporting the needed research!
