October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and promotional products are an important means for any kind of business to show their support for the cause, while raising funds for awareness, prevention and treatment.

1) Fundraising

Promotional products are a great way to raise funds for breast cancer research, education, and future awareness efforts. Choosing a promotional item that people will find fun or useful, such as drinkware or a tech item, will make raising funds easier, and as a bonus, your logo will be on the item spreading the word about your organization as well as elevating the cause.

2) Education

Use promotional products to educate people on risk factors, signs and symptoms, and early detection. 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 magnetscalendars, 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.

3) Workplace Events

Plan a workplace event in October, where employees can pick up information and donate to the cause. Reward those who donate with a themed stress ballpen or lanyard.

4) Community Events

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. Charity 5K Walk/Runs and car washes are excellent examples of this. Use giveaways such as t-shirts, awareness wristlets, or drinkware items to keep people thinking about breast cancer long after the event is over.

5) Volunteer and Donor Appreciation

Reward those who have volunteered at events or donated to your cause with a thoughtful gift to show your appreciation. Pensmagnets and reusable water bottles are cost-effective items that make great gifts. Reward larger donors with a memorable gift such as a bracelet or gift set. Recipients will be reminded of the impact of their support every time they use these items and may encourage them to participate again next year.

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. Shop more promotional awareness items here.
