How to Get Involved: Breast Cancer Awareness Month…

October is such a wonderful month, and one of the top reasons is that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a month of STRENGTH, FIGHT, HOPE... 

A month to remember those that has fallen...
Whether you host a bake sale, educate others on proper breast cancer prevention, or shop pink! There are lots of way to get involved during Pinktober’. Here are some of my favorite ways to get involved for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Host a Beauty Drive
Provide a beauty bags to women affected by breast cancer, to help them Feel Beautiful Again and to help fight the negative emotional effects of breast cancer treatment. These bags can be filled with make-up, nail polish, jewelry, hand sanitizer, and more! We guarantee that these bags would put a smile on their face!

Send Inspirational Notes
Create and send an inspirational messages of hope, love, and happiness to a patient who is currently battling breast cancer. Receiving those messages from family members or others that have been touched by breast cancer, would create a great impact. Don't forget to incorporated it into the beauty bags.

From bake sales to elaborate gala dinners we’ve seen it all from our amazing supporters. During October you can host an event to benefit iGoPink’s program services. Bake sales, car washes, office “Jeans Days,” Bunko parties. The sky is the limit and events are always a blast!
