October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the world today? Promote Breast Cancer Awareness during October. Encourage employees, customers, friends and family to get screened for breast cancer. Have a special promotion to raise money for cancer research, education, screening and treatment.

The Susan G. Komen organization has Passionately Pink for the Cure. Have your employees and customers wear pink on a day you choose in October and make a personal donation of $5.00 or more to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. You could have a specific dollar amount goal to donate and track progress on a poster for all your employees and customers to see.

Promote the event in your advertising and direct marketing and get customers coming in wearing pink. Send out a press release to local news outlets.

You’ll get a participation kit to help you plan your event when you register at Susan G. Komen for the cure. Check out the details here: Komen Donations
