An Important Pink Cause And Giveaway!


Hi everyone!

Today we are supporting breast cancer awareness! Having regular checkups and mammograms can detect early stages of this disease. I know, having a mammogram is definitely one of our least favorite things to do. Nobody wants some woman we don't know (or for that matter even a woman we do know!) try to help smash our breasts into some huge pancake flattening machine. It’s not fun. It can be embarrassing. And sometimes it can hurt a little.

But, I would much rather be embarrassed and uncomfortable with this strange woman touching my breasts than the possible alternative. And you, my readers, mean a LOT to me! I don’t want any of you to have to deal with this and the only way I can do anything is to use the power of the internet and this little blog.

Okay, after my mommy moment with y’all let’s talk about a company that is blessing so many women! And that company is Yoplait! They have run their Pink lids campaign for 13 years! Yoplait has donated more than $30 million to the breast cancer cause through all of its breast cancer initiatives! How wonderful is that!

I enjoyed being involved in this campaign last year with the folks at Yoplait through MyBlogSpark and was happy to be involved again this year.

Through Save Lids to Save Lives, Yoplait will donate ten cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® for each pink lid redeemed both online at Yoplait.com and via mail by December 31, 2011, up to $2 million. Plus, Yoplait is tracking pink lids redeemed by zip code to make sure funds generated from your lid collection go back to local breast cancer programs in your community. Here´s how you can support your local community´s fight:

  • Look for special pink lids on pink Yoplait yogurt cups, in grocery stores in September and October
  • Save your pink lids and redeem them via mail, or - for the first time - redeem them online at Yoplait.com. Make sure you enter your zip code when redeeming lids online!
  • In addition, you and your readers can visit http://bit.ly/slslcoupon to download a printable coupon* for $0.30 off any (1) variety Yoplait Yogurt cup (Includes Original, Light, Thick & Creamy, OR Whips!) today!
  • On Yoplait.com you can dedicate your lid to a woman who means something to you, read inspirational stories about those making a difference in the fight against breast cancer and find out how to support your local Susan G. Komen Affiliate

The fantastic people at Yoplait is sponsoring a fun prize package giveaway to one of my readers!
