Breast Cancer Awareness – Get Your Pink On!
Fall is fast upon us. While some people dread the upcoming cold, others revel in the changing season and beautiful, vast array of colors. The vibrant changing of the trees, the bright oranges of the pumpkin patch, and the greens and reds in the apple orchards – all waiting for the picking. But in October, our favorite color is Pink – the most recognized color for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast cancer is a disease that has or can change the lives of anyone in an instant. Whether it is a close friend, spouse, or family member, it’s a scary diagnosis that affects 1 in every 8 women (12%) in the U.S. For women, breast cancer has the highest death rate of all cancer types and is the 2nd most commonly diagnosed next to skin cancer. There is hope – there are very successful breast cancer treatments available, but it is critical that everyone is aware of how important early detection is to overcoming this disease. We may not be able to change the beautiful scenery outside to pink, but we can definitely show our support to all those around us that may be dealing with this disease directly or indirectly.
In honor of the fighters, survivors, and angels – Get Your Pink On! Put your inspirational message and the Pink Ribbon on Hats, Polo’s, T-Shirts, Socks, Bags, Promotional Products, and much more! Add the Pink Ribbon to your company logo, design your own awareness slogan by using our website app or coming by and talking with our talented Art Department. Fly a Pink Ribbon flag, hang a sign or banner for all who pass to see. At Halloween, hand out fun awareness gifts like silicone bracelets with motivating messages or an awareness button with inspirational sayings. The ideas and options are limitless – all of which will spread awareness, hope, and the vital message reminding women to perform self-exams or be seen by a doctor and could potentially save a life.
For the month of October, Signet will donate 10% of profits for all purchased Breast Cancer Awareness apparel and products to the Winchester Medical Center Cancer Center. So we encourage you to “Get Your Pink On” and help give the gift of health, safety, and education by spreading awareness. Together, we can make a difference.
