The grocery stores are filled with pumpkins. Witch lawn ornaments cackle at the front of retail stores. (Costco is selling Christmas trees! But let's not think that far ahead.) This must mean October is almost here!
While you'll surely start to see more people carrying Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, you might also notice NFL players wearing pink socks and TV personalities sporting pink ribbons. That's because October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Almost all of us know a friend or family member who has battled breast cancer. Maybe you are a survivor yourself! As October approaches, please consider supporting a breast cancer charity.
More importantly, ask your company to support a breast cancer charity this October. Here at Shades of Pink Foundation, California, we are happy to work with local businesses who want to raise funds during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We can help you brainstorm special promotions and will get the word out among our local network to raise awareness of your event!
At Shades of Pink Foundation, California, our focus is providing direct relief to women in San Diego in active breast cancer treatment. We help pay their rent or mortgage, cover the cost of groceries, make car payments -- anything a woman needs to stay financially afloat during this difficult time.
Keep reading to see a great example of what a partnership with SOPFCA can look like with our Bike for Boobs event on Oct. 14th. We also highlight the story of Donna, one of our many deserving grant recipients.
Our organization is young and still growing, and our success depends on you! Please keep us in mind this October and during every month of the year.
President, Shades of Pink Foundation California
