Save Lids To Save Lives
I love to see all the individuals and businesses – large and small – working to fight against breast cancer. If you don’t know yet, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer within her lifetime; that’s 12 percent of all women who will be personally impacted by the disease.
Those numbers are staggering.
Even if you are one of the ‘fortunate 7’ out of 8 who doesn’tt get a personal diagnosis, you are sure to know someone else who has been diagnosed. Breast cancer has a personal impact on us all.
Yoplait is working with Susan G. Komen for the Cure again this year – they’ve donated millions of dollars over the last decade. You may have noticed the specially marked pink lids on Yoplait products in your grocery store. For each one that you save, wash, and send in, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They will donate up to 1.5 million and at least $500,000 (see site for full details)
This year Yoplait is making it easier than ever for you to join with others in their Save Lids to Save Lives program. You can start up a team or join an existing team to encourage each others and work together.
