In what ways you give back to help the fight against breast cancer? October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sam’s Club is giving you easy ways to support breast cancer education and research by simply purchasing everyday items at Sam’s Club. Sam’s Club stores are featuring exclusive pink packaging throughout their stores on participating General Mills products.
This is the 5th year that General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation. Genearl Mills will be making their annual donation of $2 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for cancer research, education, and community outreach projects.
I was at our local Sam’s Club earlier this week and found a huge display that welcomed me to the store with a large variety of items marked pink for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Stock up on your favorite General Mills food products like Cheerios, Fuze, Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies, and more while supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness.
Purchase specially-marked personal health products too like Crest toothpaste, Sonicare toothbrush, and more to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I always buy the Sonicare tootbrush refills at Sam’s Club already.
Or purchase every day household items that you already need at Sam’s Club.[slickr-flickr tag=householditems]
General Mills’ donations will be divided between 2 Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program that helps women get healthcare that they cannot afford otherwise, and Prevention Research. You can even help decide how half of General Milll’s contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012. Voting results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012.
