This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Ingrid. Congrats!
As I mentioned yesterday, October is breast cancer awareness month. Many companies are doing their part to raise awareness and money to help find a cure. Yoplait is one such company. According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime (approx. 12%). That’s too many. If you buy Yoplait yogurt, you may have noticed the pink lids (I know I have!).
Yoplait is making it easy for us to make a difference and contribute to the cause. All you have to do is save those pink lids from September and October and mail them in before December 31. Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen For the Cure (up to $1.5 million) for every lid received. The minimum donation Yoplait has committed to is $500,000. If you visit the site, you’ll be able to create online lid collection teams and engage with friends, family, and colleagues to join the cause. In addition, Dr. Kristi Funk, Founder of the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills, is joining Yoplait to educate women and men about the importance of breast cancer risk reduction, early detection, and ways to support the cause.
Yoplait has donated more than $22 million to breast cancer through this program over the last 11 years. Last year, with your help, Yoplait met it’s donation goal of $1.5 million to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Win It! One of you will win a “Promise to Make a Difference” gift which includes a coupon for Yoplait YoPlus Yogurt, a breast cancer awareness bracelet, and a leather jewelry case. Just leave me a comment with a way you will help Yoplait in the fight against breast cancer. Will you start or join a collection team on the site? Will you blog or tweet about it? Will you save and mail in lids? What will YOU do to join in this cause? Comments will close on October 28, 2009 at 10 PM PST. One comment per person, please (unless you do the extra credit).
