Everywhere you look in the month of October you see SOMETHING with PINK!!! I love pink and this it is quite fun to see such a fun color everywhere, however, the meaning behind it is much more powerful.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Every 69 seconds, somewhere in the world a woman dies of Breast Cancer. It is one of the most common causes of death for women.
Thankfully, there are ways you can help! The Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation is the global leader for breast cancer research. Since it's beginnings in 1982 it has raised over 1.5 billion dollars towards the cure!
I know what you are thinking...how can I donate my money to the Susan G. Komen fund without going through PayPal online, or sending in money, or jumping through 50 hoops just to donate $5. But they have made it really easy! Most of the time, when you purchase an item that is pink in a store, some of the profits go towards the cure for breast cancer. There are several "pink" games at colleges and universities that accept donations. There is even a 3-day for the Cure Walk that happens throughout the year in several locations that benefits the Susan G. Komen foundation. Check out more ways you can help at: www.komen.org
