The Susan G. Komen's Atlanta 3Day will be held Oct. 18-20, and there's still time to register.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Jenny Creno shares five ways men and women are thinking "pink" in October.
- The NFL’s - A Crucial Catch Campaign: For the past few years the NFL has made a huge effort to donate as much as possible to the American Cancer Society by raising money through their “Pink” merchandise. It has to be so comforting for those living with breast cancer to turn on the NFL during October and see pink just everywhere. 100% of the NFL’s net proceeds from their “Pink” merchandise are donated to the American Cancer Society. Their efforts score them a game winning touchdown!
- Essie Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Polish Collection: This one may be mostly for the ladies; Essie proudly introduced their latest breast cancer awareness collection with two fabulous shades of pink showing how they are Thinking Pink. A PINKtober manicure might be the perfect reason to leave the kids home, and get your nails Pink-a-fied for a great cause!
- Susan G. Komen - Race For The Cure: Get those pink sneaks ready and find a race near you! Make it a fun filled day of Thinking Pink for the whole family!
- Pink Ribbon Banking Account - Bank of America: Bank of America is working to “make every day Pink.” When a Pink Ribbon Banking Account is opened and activated they make a contribution to the Susan G. Komen effort. Komen receives a minimum of $3 and up to 0.20 percent of all net retail purchases made with the card. There’s no better way to Think Pink than doing it every day of the year!
- E.L.F. Studio HD Blush in Headliner: E.L.F. Cosmetics is donating 100% of the profits from the sale of their Studio HD Blush in their Headliner color to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There’s no better way to Think Pink than to actually wear it on those rosy cheeks of yours!
"If there is one thing that we can all take away from this, it’s how beautiful people really can be, not just because they are wearing pink on the outside, but how they’re wearing it on their hearts during PINKtober," Creno says.
