Since joining my college sorority ten years ago, I’ve looked forward to participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure every year (I know they don’t really call it Race for the Cure anymore, but I can’t seem to call it anything else). Current partnerships with Komen, the NFL and other organizations have helped my sorority to spread awareness and promote breast health. One of the projects we did in college was to distribute shower cards with instructions for how to do a self breast-exam.
I know there are a ton of products available right now with pink ribbons, logos, etc. and they all claim to support breast cancer research. I think it’s important that we do our homework and make sure the proceeds actually go where we think they do when we make purchases. I saw these cute reusable bags for sale at my local grocery store and thought they might be a fun thing to give away. Fifty cents from the sale of each goes to Komen for the Cure. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but if we all pitch in, it adds up.
If you’d like to win one of these adorable bags, just leave a comment on this post! I’ll choose 5 winners on Friday October 22nd! Maybe you’re a breast cancer survivor, maybe you’re doing your first race this month, maybe you just like pink...whatever you’d like to share, comment away!
