It’s important to take a moment every now and again to remember that you are lucky to be healthy and able to get up and moving everyday. So many people suffer illnesses far worse than any bad day I have ever had. General Mills has done just that by creating a site called Pink Together which is now in its fourth year.
The Pink Together campaign aims to raise greater awareness of breast cancer and to help those touched by breast cancer by finding strength together. Please visit PinkTogether.com, which is an ever-growing community of hope of more than 680,000 breast cancer survivors and supporters. You will be able share stories, post comments of encouragement and send virtual flowers to let someone know you are thinking of him or her. It’s so touching and can mean so much to someone who is suffering.
To encourage personal connections in the online community, General Mills will donate $1 (up to $20,000) to Komen for each inspirational story submitted, encouraging comment posted, or virtual flower of support sent on PinkTogether.com, and for each shared message of hope posted on Pink Together´s Facebook fan page during the month of October (up to $5,000). This $25,000 is in addition to the $2 million donation General Mills has committed to Komen to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.
