As breast cancer awareness month draws near, new products are being revealed that are created to help raise the awareness for breast cancer research and support for those with breast cancer. The more awareness that is put towards this cause, the higher the chance for positive change. Companies are coming together to provide products that will help spread the word of breast cancer support in new and unique ways.
5-Hour Energy is showing its support for fight against breast cancer by creating its new pink lemonade flavored 5-Hour Energy shot. The makers of 5-Hour Energy have partnered with Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade for this pink drink. The bottle will be the signature pink color, with portions of every sale going to the Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade. For every bottle sold, 5 cents is donated. These energy drinks are being sold in stores across U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Spain and the Netherlands, and 5-Hour Energy guaranteed a donation to the cause in the amount of $75,000.
Under Armour, the athletic wear brand worn many NFL players is also doing its part to support the fight against breast cancer. NFL players such as Tom Brady, Ray Lewis, and Cam Newton will be sporting pink cleats to honor those with breast cancer and to further commit to the fight to find a cure. This kind of large-scale support reaches every person who may watch the NFL, raising awareness in a big way.
Small-scale support, like wearing a bracelet or ribbon, is equally important as the large scale campaigns and donations previously mentioned. Each person who spends a small amount of money toward breast cancer funds becomes part of a bigger picture of supporters, and they are together in contributing to large-scale research, support, and education, bringing the world one step closer to finding a cure. There are many small-scale products that can help spread the word and can get more people to think pink and participate in the fight against breast cancer. For instance, pinkribbonshop.com offers a wide selection of pink ribbon doted items from bracelets to t-shirts to car magnets. This website has donated $50,000 already to various organizations to help their research to find the cure for cancer. Their website offers the traditional pink ribbon silicon bracelet for only $1.
With over 200,000 women diagnosed every year, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer known. Every dollar spent on a breast cancer awareness product is donation towards education, prevention, research, and a cure for breast cancer.
