It is hard not to notice that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month when we see pink all around us. The month is almost over but I wanted to remind you there is still a way that you can help fight breast cancer.
For every pink lid saved and sent in by December 31, 2010, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, with a total donation of up to $1.6 million and a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000. To date, Yoplait has raised more than $25 million for the breast cancer cause.
In an ongoing effort to educate and encourage women of all ages to put their breast health first, Yoplait’s Save Lids to Save Lives campaign is once again collaborating with celebrity breast cancer surgeon Dr. Kristi Funk, in addition to the founder and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Nancy G. Brinker and MTV star Audrina Patridge. Through their relationship with Yoplait, these empowered women are encouraging everyone to save their pink lids and join the fight against breast cancer.
How Can You Help Contribute to the Cause?
Be sure to sure to save the lids from your favorite participating Yoplait products including all single serve yogurt cups – Original, Light, Thick and; Creamy, Light Thick and Creamy, Whips!, Yoplait Delights, Yoplait Greek and select specially-marked packages of large size Yoplait yogurts and Yoplait Frozen Smoothies. Remember, there are no specialty codes, so be sure to save and send in your pink Yoplait lids by December 31, 2010.
Don’t forget to visit Facebook.com/YoplaitPledge, where you can find fun and easy tools to pass on. While you’re there, make sure to “Like” the page and take a minute to share your photos of the pink lids you’ve collected. Get your friends involved in the cause by sending them a virtual Save Lids to Save Lives gift! For every lid gift sent by December 31, 2010, Yoplait will donate $1.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure up to $100,000.
You can also check out the Promise Me book tour sponsored by Yoplait to find out when Nancy Brinker will be making a stop in your area.
Thanks to MyBlogSpark I have a great Pink Prize Pack that includes 2 VIP coupons for Yoplait Greek, a pink leather journal and pen and an awareness charm bracelet. It would be great to give to a friend battling breast cancer.
