Have you had your yearly Mammogram? As you may all know or not. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I have the pleasure of working with MyBlogSpark to help spread the word about a program called Pink Together.
You maybe asking yourself right now “What is Pink Together?” Well Pink Together is a community of women who share their stories of surviving breast cancer. Not only do they share their stories, they also support those who are fighting breast cancer and offer hope. Hope can go a lot farther then some may think.
I was informed by MyBlogSpark, that General Mills will be donating $2 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® , they will also be turning the packaging pink for the month of October on an assortment of their beloved brands. Are you ready for some more. For the month of October General Mills will also be donating $1, up to $20,000, each time someone posts a comment of encouragement, sends a virtual flower, or shares a story on Pink Together. (All of this information was obtained from an email I received from MyBlogSpark)
