Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Although spreading awareness for this important cause is welcomed and encouraged year-round, October is a great time to rally for increased awareness, education, and support around Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer prevention.
According to BreastCancer.org, in the US, about 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. An estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in this year. These astounding numbers make the case for education and disease awareness a top priority.
Promotional products can help health organizations as well as any other business with a passion for the cause to show support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
How can promotional products be used to support Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October?
Promotional products are a great way to raise funds for breast cancer research, education, and future awareness efforts. Selling promotional breast cancer items at events or in your store or medical facility can be a more enticing way to raise money than a bake sale or other point of purchase donations. Choosing a promotional item that people find desirable will make raising funds easier, and as a bonus, your logo will be on the item spreading the word even further.
Using promotional products to educate people on risk factors, signs & symptoms, and early detection is a great way to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Education is one of the best ways to increase the rate of early detection and connect those in need with resources in their community. Promotional products such as magnets, pens, calendars, and bags can help share the name, address, phone number or website of informational resources that people can use to learn more about the disease.
Host, sponsor or participate in an event in your community in support of a person who is fighting the disease or an organization that directly helps with research, resources, education or awareness for Breast Cancer. Use giveaways such as t-shirts, awareness wristlets, or drinkware items to keep people thinking about Breast Cancer long after the event is over.
Reward those who have made donations to your cause with a small gift to show your appreciation. Pens, awareness wristlets, and ribbon magnets are cost effective items that make great gifts for donors. Recipients will be reminded of the impact of their support every time they use their gifted item and may encourage repeat gifts.
Through efforts that support those living with the disease, research surrounding the disease, advancements in treatment, and fundraising, the mortality rate for those diagnosed with Breast Cancer can be lowered.
The need for awareness spreads far beyond just the month of October! Let’s spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness all year long with promotional products.
