Breast Cancer Awareness Month takes place throughout the entire month of October every year. It began in 1985 in an effort to increase concern for breast health issues and spread the importance of early cancer detection.
While a great deal of research and treatments have been achieved and improved in recent years, breast cancer is still one of the leading causes of death among women, second only to skin cancer. Therefore, the value of acknowledging and promoting healthy breast care is substantial.
It is important to educate women on the risk factors and causes of breast cancer, as well as possible preventative measures and annual mammography screening for women over 40. Take this time to educate families in your community about breast cancer prevention.
During October, many people decide to host fundraisers with profits going to the National Breast Cancer Association. If you choose to do some sort of community bake sale, make sure to personalize napkins that you can use to pass out the baked goods. Another super popular fundraiser idea is to sell custom awareness bracelets. Take these bracelets to a Friday night football game and sent up a booth. By selling the products at a very low price, fans of both teams will purchase them for the great cause.
In the workplace, show your clients and employees that your company is active in the fight against breast cancer by providing them with imprinted notepads and pens. Browse some of our items available in pink to show your support for this vital cause.
