Thinking Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Unfortunately, we all seem to be touched by this awful disease in some way, if not personally then through a loved one. Happily, through early detection and research, many breast cancer patients are also survivors.

As you commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness month, here are a couple of ways to use Uppercase Living products to spread the message. First, you can apply a pink ribbon embellishment (item #44570 or #44571) to your car. You can also add the name of a loved one who has dealt with breast cancer to honor her (or him).

A fun way to raise money for research would be to use the UL Acrylic Block as a bank and encourage donations. Here's an example using the awareness ribbon with the heart and a custom expression. The block has an opening that can be used to insert money or checks. Place the block on your desk at work and at the end of the month, donate the contents to one of the many organizations who support, fund and conduct breast cancer research. Here are just a few:

Finally, don't forget to do your monthly exams and schedule your mammogram.
