Every Breast Cancer Awareness event is a powerful way for the local community to do their part against a disease that affects so many. It is a way for the community to honor survivors, raise awareness, and raise funds to find a cure. Here are some tips on how to gather a team and help make a difference.
Choose a local event- Check online to see when the next local events are coming up. Once you pick your date, you can start building your team. Edible Arrangements® partners with the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada, which receive 10% of sales from our Breast Cancer Awareness products in October. To find events supported by these organizations you can visit their websites:
Build a supporting team- There is no “I” in team, so start by engaging your fellow participants. A robust team makes your Breast Cancer efforts more financially meaningful, and more fun! If you or someone you know is a survivor, you may want to do this in their honor. Family, friends, and acquaintances will thank you for organizing everyone to support this great cause.
Fundraise for the cause- The biggest goal of Breast Cancer Awareness events is to raise funds to find a cure and to support the strong women and men who are affected. The sooner your team starts to fundraise the better your chances of meeting—or beating—your goal. Did you know that Edible Arrangements® has a fundraising program? Call your local store to find out more!
Show your support- Breast Cancer Awareness and the color pink go hand in hand! Make sure you and your team are rocking pink on the day of the event! Whether you go pink head to toe or just clip in some funky pink hair extensions, show your support with your own pink chic!
Celebrate in a sweet way- When your team has done its part, take a little time to celebrate in appropriate style. Our Heels for Healing® Bouquet can be shared by the entire team, and is one more way to show your support! Every Breast Cancer Awareness purchase this month means a donation to the cause. United States proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation; in Canada, it’s the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.
