THINK BEFORE YOU PINK
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you're going to be tempted to buy anything that says it's for the cause... But I want you to take a pause first. Because most of the pink goods don't actually go to the research or support that they are claiming on the tag. Even the larger foundations have such huge overhead that the monies don't truly go to where you think it's going.
Give locally. Find a center near you doing great work in your community. Help someone purchase a mammogram or ultrasound, help them get fitted for a wig or prosthetic or even a bra. Help someone's family get groceries or take them to an appointment. Find out where your purchase is really going.
DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SIMPLY PURCHASE SOME PINK THING.
Women die every day unnecessarily from this disease. You can be a part of changing it with a little extra thought...
My time or money goes to Michelles Place Breast Cancer Resource Center...because they fight the good cause
