October has arrived and the world is painted pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. October 2010 marks the 26th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, although the fundraising continues year round. In efforts to raise millions of dollars to fund research for this disease, many organizations are collecting donations. Just the other day I was in the check-out line at my local grocery store and the clerk asked if I would like to add a $1, $3, or $5 donation onto my total. My response (and the response of almost everyone else in line) – absolutely! Although science has made great strides in treatment and with promoting general awareness, there is still a lot to be done in the race for the cure!
If you’re looking to get involved with this great cause, think about making your next promotional purchase a pink one to not only promote your brand but to make a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer. Quality Logo Products has many items available that would look great in your next promotional program!
Here are my a few of my favorites:
Pink Squiggle Bracelets
Looking for a hip giveaway that promotes your brand while raising Breast Cancer awareness? Try our four packs of pink Squiggle Bracelets. These rubber-band bracelets have become commonplace in America’s grade schools and are now even catching on with the older population. These bracelets are a fun way to carry the awareness theme with your customers year round! Each pack contains four shapes: the awareness ribbon, heart, and the words “hope” and “cure” – to fully embody the message of awareness. Not only can your customers wear these bracelets on a daily basis, but they can also trade them with friends or pass them out to folks who don’t have a Squiggle of their own!
Statement Tote Bags
If bracelets aren’t your thing, then maybe you’d be better off making a bolder statement with a Statement Tote Bag. This adorable bag is adorned with your choice of three dazzling patterns, one of which boasts the widely recognizable pink awareness ribbon. Your customers or employees will love to receive these attractive gems and they will be able to show their support of the cause as they carry these bags on their shoulder wherever they go. Want to hear the best part about this shopping tote? For every Statement Tote purchased, $1.00 will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. Any company who makes this their next promotional purchase will simultaneously be contributing to a great cause and gifting an item that everyone craves …what a great combination.
Pinnacle Awareness Ribbon Golf Balls
Now, say you’re hosting your last golf outing of the year and you want to go out with a BANG. Why not make your players use these Pinnacle Awareness Ribbon Golf Balls? Pinnacle has served as a strong voice for Susan G Komen and actively participates in the Cure’s Million Dollar Council in order to develop new ways to treat Breast Cancer. So by purchasing these golf balls, you’ll be giving your logo a prime spot on the reverse side of the ball to really hit home the message that your brand promotes research for this cause!
Do something to get involved in the fight against this disease during the month of October. Whether you participate in a walk to raise awareness or make a financial contribution, you are an integral part of the campaign’s success. Every effort helps! It is more important than ever to get on board with this great cause so we can all live in a healthier environment. And remember: Awareness is SO SO SO important and early detection is KEY!!
