Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaways
It's a common fact that everyone loves free stuff. If they get it they're not going to question it. If it's a popular item, they'll clamor for it. You don't need to break on the bank to raise awareness. Try getting something that will stay in people's sight line and that they can use all year round. An ideal item for the
office is the translucent pink power clip. Not only can it hold several papers together, but its magnetic backing allows it to be stuck to filing cabinets and magnetic boards. Another office friendly Breast Cancer awareness item is the Breast Cancer Awareness Post It note pad. The 4 x 6 pads, available with either 25 or 50 sheets, feature the pink ribbon. Because Post-It notes are usually thrown away after they've done their purpose, pair them with a pink pen and you've got a great giveaway.
Breast Cancer Walk A Thons
One of the most common events during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a walk a thon. Breast Cancer walks happen all over the country and it's a great way to raise money for a cure. Even if you're not a walker, there's still ways to get involved by using breast cancer awareness products. The most common way is to sponsor someone or a team. But go beyond just giving money. Provide the team with imprinted pink apparel, like a pink t-shirt with your corporate logo on it. Give walkers a breast cancer awareness water bottle to help quench their thirst along the way. An imprinted pink pedometer will help them see just how many steps they've taken for a great cause, not to mention how many calories they've burned!
Fundraisers are a great way to collect money for breast cancer awareness. Imprint a logo or message on an item and sell it. Then donate the proceeds to the charity of
your choice! Pink ribbon lapel pins. pink ribbon key chains and breast cancer awareness bracelets are just a few items that could be sold to not only raise awareness, but help raise money for the cause. Add your company logo to a tote bag or sport towel and sell them at a charity fundraiser. Not only will you be raising money for a great cause, you'll be branding your logo as well!
