sam's club supports breast cancer awareness (with giveaway)


unless you've been hiding under a rock lately, you know that october is breast cancer awareness month. soon you will be seeing these pink ribbons everywhere. maybe you are even planning on participating in a "race for the cure" event.

if you aren't so much up for running, there is another way that you can support research for breast cancer. simply by purchasing specially marked general mills products like cheerios and fiber one 90 calorie brownies at sam's club (starting even now), you can be a part of supporting breast cancer education and research.

general mills has partnered with the susan g. komen for the cure® foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities for five years now. this year general mills will be making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects. the donations will be divided between two important komen programs: the treatment and assistance program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and prevention research, which can help find ways to prevent breast cancer.

in addition to purchasing specially marked products at sam's club, you can help decided how half of the 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.

to give you some additional incentive to shop pink at sam's, i have a $25 gift card to offer one of you. simply leave a comment telling me what your favorite purchase is at sam's club. you can leave a second comment if you subscribe to this blog. i will choose a winner using random.org on october 5 (us residents only please).  

i received the information and a complimentary sam's club gift card for myself and one to giveaway from sam's club and general mills through myblogspark.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.

  1. I like so many things at Sam's. :) I think my favorite is milk since it's almost a dollar cheaper per gallon than anywhere else. That adds up to a lot!
