Pink Together

October is Breast Cancer Awarenss month and you are probably seeing pink everywhere!  Thanks to MyBlogSpark, I learned about Pink Together, an online community on MySpace where those touched by breast cancer can connect and provide support, comfort, and encouragement to one another.  On PinkTogether.com, we can all share hope by posting and reading inspiring stories of breast cancer survivors and supporters within the community.

The site is part of Pink Together, a national campaign to support those impacted by breast cancer and to help raise awareness of the disease.  To support Pink Together, General Mills is donating $2 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and is turning the packaging pink for October on an assortment of its most beloved brands.  General Mills will also donate $1, up to $20,000, each time you post a comment of encouragement, send a virtual flower bouquet or share a story on PinkTogether.com in October.  This is a simple and awesome way to support those impacted by breast cancer.

Pink Together Prize

As part of the promotion of PinkTogether.com, 1 lucky reader on The Mommy-Files will receive an “Inspiring Hope” gift basket, which includes a sleeved travel mug, a running ribbon charm bracelet, a pink leather strap keychain, a pink cinch bag, and a set of inspirational note cards.  All of the gift basket items are from ShopKomen.com, where 25% of the merchandise purchase price benefits Susan G. Komen for the cure in the fight against breast cancer.

  91. Julie Cutshaw says:

    main entry: I think its wonderful how one person who feels lost from this terrible dieses who either battled it themselves or with a loved one can become stronger thru the voice and testimonies of others who shared the same exsperience. When we come together we are stronger and can reach the goals that seem imposible. And something as simple as a virtual flower can brighten that survivors day and give them further hope for a cure and give them more encouragement.
