The Importance of “Thinking Pink” 365 Days a Year

With Breast Cancer Awareness Month behind us and November starting, it’s important we not just “think pink” in October, but every month of the year by spreading the word and becoming an advocate

Traditionally, October is a time of great momentum for Breast Cancer Awareness, but the excitement of all the October events doesn’t have to end! You can support these efforts, to increase breast cancer awareness right in your own backyard—and beyond—365 days a year.

Here are some creative, original ways to “think pink” all year long:

  • Host an eventIt doesn’t have to be October for you to fundraise for the cause. You can “think pink” throughout the year as a fundraising vehicle to spread the word on how to increase breast cancer awareness. Or, show your support of a friend, colleague, or family member who has breast cancer, and fundraise just for them! (Seriously, who doesn’t love a good party for a good cause)!
  • Start a blog. With the Internet being the prime place people turn to for information on breast cancer awareness, you can create digital content that inspires people to “think pink”, and spread the word on breast cancer awareness every month to a global audience. It’s a fact that many women eligible for breast reconstruction following cancer surgery are not being properly informed of their options. Blogs and social media are a great platform to educate women on breast reconstruction awareness and to share your own story.

Speaking of which, if you aren’t fans on Facebook or following us on Twitter, we welcome you to join the conversation!

  • Join or host a support group to nurture breast cancer awareness. “Thinking pink” also means connecting with other women with breast cancer, breast cancer survivors, and with those who are also passionate about increasing breast cancer awareness. By plugging into a support group every month, you stay on the front lines of the fight long after Breast Cancer Awareness month is over.

Let’s keep the conversation going. Let us know if you have any questions, or if you’d like to join us to promote your next Charleston area event in our newsletter!
