#304 show support for your favorite cause

7 Oct

There are a lot of causes out there that need supported. And, when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. Ranging from education to social to health- there are all sorts of ways to show support!

October is an especially easy month to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness. It is as simple as wearing PINK! Pink is the color designated to support Breast Cancer. Here are some breast cancer facts:

        1. Aside from skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women.

        2. There are several different types of breast cancer.

        3. Breast cancer also affects men.

        4. There are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the US today (yay!)

What I really love is that the NFL is uber-supportive of Breast Cancer Awareness during October. Watch any game this month and you will see the players wearing pink shoes, pink gloves, and pink towels hanging in their pants. Choose a cause and support it- wear the colors, wear the bracelet, make a donation, buy a shirt that supports it (GAP has shirts supporting AIDS research), be vocal about it!  Check out http://www.nbcam.org/disease_breast_cancer.cfm to read more about Breast Cancer. And for today’s quote, thanks to my friend Carinne who posted the picture/quote on my facebook! Until tomorrow…

PS: it reads “If you continually give, you will continually have.”
