I am sure many of you who are readers of my blog, remember the many posts about my mother through the past year after she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Â Ever since that moment I crashed to the floor after she told me she had breast cancer (now clean bill of health), I have wanted nothing more than to make sure there is enough awareness to make a difference. Â Whether it be through raising money for research or just an encouraging word to someone who is going through the situation my mother (and subsequently my aunt)went through I have wanted to make a difference.
Thanks to My Blog Spark I learned of a wonderful site, Pink Together. Â Pink Together has started just that, an encouraging way to give back to those who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives. You can go and listen to the stories of those who have been through and are going through breast cancer and more importantly leave a message of encouragement or virtual bouquet of flowers to lift the spirits of someone who is Â battling breast cancer themselves.
A little more about Pink Together from the sponsor:
The site is part of PinkÂ TogetherÂ®, a national campaign to support those impacted by breast cancer and to help raise awareness of the disease. To support PinkÂ Together, General Mills is donating $2 million to Susan G. Komen for the CureÂ® and is turning the packaging pinkÂ on an assortment of its most beloved brands. General Mills will also donate $1, up to $20,000, each time you post a comment of encouragement, send a virtual flower bouquet or share a story on PinkTogether.com in October.
This is truly a wonderful way to help support a cause as well as encouraging those who are in much need of encouraging during a hard time in their lives. Â So head over to Pink Together and bring a smile to someone’s face today. Â It’s the things we think are little that really make all the difference in the world. Â And if you are a survivor please go share your story today, it just might be the extra push someone needs to make it through that last round of chemo or radiation.
AnÂ Inspiring Hope gift basket that includes a sleeved travel mug, a running ribbon charm bracelet, a pinkÂ leather strap keychain, apinkÂ cinch bag, and a set of inspirational note cards. All of the gift basket items are fromÂ ShopKomen.com, where 25 percent of the merchandise purchase price benefits Susan G. Komen for the CureÂ® in the fight against breast cancer.
