One2Embrace: OCTOBER

October is One2Embrace: Do so by choosing to #livepink.

It's the 1st of the month & October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast Cancer can affect you as a woman, friend, family member, coworker, or acquaintance. So what?! Well, do something this month to support Breast Cancer Awareness {from here on out, referred to as BCA}.

Support BCA, or in other words, Save Second Base ;)
Anyone can find a way that fits their own lifestyle

Want some ideas?

  • Attend a local event that supports BCA
  • Participate in a sporting event (i.e. 5K run/walk, etc.) in support of BCA
  • No free time? Make a donation.
  • No extra money? Wear your pink ribbon every day.
  • No ample energy? Write a blog entry encouraging others to support BCA...kidding :) sort of.
  • Like shopping? Before purchasing an item, check if there's a "pink" version.  Many companies provide a "pink" version of an item (i.e. water bottle, headband, nail polish...) and donate a percentage of the proceeds to Breast Cancer research.
Here is how I have chosen to #livepink in the past:

Attended local event Bras on Broadway which has helped to raise more than $250,000 for the American Cancer Society. Bras, women, & cosmos... need I say more? Fun fun FUN.

You will find at least one of my pink pins on most of my fall jackets.  It's a small gesture, but it does get noticed.
My grandma-in-law and I in lots of our pink gear after attending a local Women's Expo.

Got any other ideas to share on how you can support BCA? Do you wear a pink ribbon every day? Holla back, I want to know! 

And join me as I find new ways to live pink, because October is One2Embrace!
