I try to show you in different ways on how you can help in the research of Breast Cancer; we are all about helping in the Crazy Mom’s house, but sometimes money is a little tight. I know my readers probly feel the same way sometimes; it feels like everyone is holding their hands open looking for a donation. Research is very important for any health matter, so I wanted to introduce you to yet another way of helping Breast Cancer research and not spending any extra money, other than what you are spending already.
Give back by purchasing your favorite cereal or snack! This October, by making simple everyday purchases at Sam’s Club, you can help support breast cancer education and research. Beginning September 19th, Sam’s Club stores will feature exclusive pink packaging on some of your favorite participating General Mills products in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.
Purchase specially-marked General Mills products like Cheerios and Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies at your local Sam’s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012.
General Mills’ donations will be divided between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Voting results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012.
Let your voice be heard and help with every day purchases that you have to buy anyways. To get you started and help you out a little, General Mills and Sam’s Club are offering one lucky 2Boys+1Girl=OneCrazyMom reader a $25 Gift card for Sam’s Club so you can purchase the much needed “Pink” items and help donate to breast cancer research.
