Ways to Fight Against Breast Cancer

Posted: October 3rd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Many of the residents of our apartments in Mooresville, NC are looking for ways they can help. Here are a few ideas on how you can help in the fight against Breast Cancer this month.

Pin It To End It - The Avon Foundation for Women has created a Pinterest board to honor and remember women and men who are facing or who have battled breast cancer. Pin photos of a loved one whom breast cancer has taken from us, who is a breast cancer survivor or who is currently fighting the disease and tag the photos with #pinittoendit. For each photo posted and tagged during Breast Cancer Awareness Month the Avon Foundation will donate $5 (and for every re-pin, we'll donate an additional $0.50) up to $100,000 to fund both the Breast Health Outreach Program to improve access to breast health care and  research investigating the role viruses may play in breast cancer. Go to www.avonfoundation.org/pinittoendit to learn more.

Pink Yourself on Facebook - How do you look in pink? For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, why not try on some pink ... on Facebook? The Avon Foundation for Women has developed a Facebook tool to help you promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Visit www.avonfoundation.org/pinkyourself to "pink" your Facebook profile photo. You can tint it pink, or add a pink ribbon, an Avon Breast Cancer Crusade logo or the U.S. Avon Walk  for Breast Cancer slogan, "I'm In It To End It."

Buy Avon Pink Products - The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade's pink ribbon fundraising products donate 100% of net proceeds to the cause. The latest addition is the 20th Anniversary Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Watch, in two different styles and colors, available on Avon.com. The affordable pink ribbon collection features everything from bracelets and ear buds to scarfs and pins. Each product comes with a free breast health resource guide.

Walk and Be "In It To End it" - The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Series celebrates its 10th birthday season in 2012. Join us at the walk in Charlotte (October 27-28).
