Give back by purchasing your favorite cereal or snack! This October, by making simple everyday purchases at Sam’s Club, you can help support breast cancer education and research. Beginning September 19th, Sam’s Club stores will feature exclusive pink packaging on some of your favorite participating General Mills products in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.
Purchase specially-marked General Mills products like Cheerios and Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies at your local Sam’s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012. General Mills’ donations will be divided between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Voting results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012.
Our Thoughts …
We started shopping at Sam’s Club when we moved here for the main reason it was the only warehouse club in the area. We have grown to love the selection at Sam’s Club though. I just did a shopping trip with the kids on Saturday. I was thrilled to see the pink lids on the Yoplait yogurt that I put in the cart because I had already read about this promotion. (There was a big display at the front of the store but solo shopping with three kids didn’t allow for browsing on my part! I hope to check out the display more next trip.
We are really excited to giveaway a $25 gift card for one of our readers to Sam’s Club to use to buy why you need (hopefully something on your list is part of the breast cancer awareness promotion!)
