Unfortunately, most of us know someone that has been affected by breast cancer...it could be family, friends, or even yourself. Dealing with the disease in any capacity makes have one thing in common...the wish to fight it! We aren't alone with this wish! As you probably know, October is breast cancer awareness month. I personally believe that awareness is the number one weapon we currently have against this disease in which early detection is CRUCIAL!
Did you know that 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? You can help make a difference by buying products you already love!
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: theTreatment 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.
As if that's not awesome enough, General Mills and Sam's Club have provided a $25 Sam's Club gift card for one of my readers!!
