This month I've turned my blog pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I have not been directly affected by breast cancer, but my aunt and my mother-in-law have. That is why I am happy to support it with this giveaway on behalf of General Mills.
Breast cancer not only effects women, but their families as well. This month get involved join the 2011 Pink Together TM campaign by visiting PinkTogether.com
Here are some things YOU can do:
Visit PinkTogether.com to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others´ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on PinkTogether.com (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization.
This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at PinkTogether.com consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit PinkTogether.com from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother´s Day 2012 – Sunday, May 13.
