Reward women for getting mammograms and help youth in the community create awareness.

Challenge

Encourage as many women as possible to get mammograms in October.

Solution

Administrators at a busy manufacturing plant in the South hired a mobile mammogram service to give women mammograms on site.

Each person who signed up received a Bracelet from Positive Promotions’ Pink Awareness Bracelets With Reminder Card Assortment Pack.

Bring a 9-year-old girl’s dream of curing cancer closer to reality.

Solution

After discovering that her daughter wanted to help cure breast cancer, a mother in the South bought 100 Positive Promotions’ Pink Ribbon Paracord Bracelets that her daughter sold to raise money for a local cancer center. The fundraiser grew beyond the girl’s friends, family, and school and spread into the entire community, prompting the mother to buy more Bracelets to sell. Eventually, the daughter donated over $1,000 to the center and was even treated to a VIP tour of the facility. “The day was a dream come true and inspired her to continue raising money to find a cure,” the mother said.

CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY #13

Engage local football fans in the fight against breast cancer.

Solution

To bring awareness about breast cancer and the services their facility provides, employees from a hospital in the Midwest hosted a “Pink Out” at a local football game. They handed out pink items, such as Positive Promotions’ Pink Ribbon Paracord Bracelets and Butter Mints from the Early Detection Pink Butter Mint Assort-“mint” In Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Slogan Wrappers, to each football fan who attended. Between quarters, they also handed out promotional items to the fans in the stands.

Participate in a community event to educate women about breast health.

Solution

In addition to reaching out to uninsured or under-insured women, an imaging center in New England participated in an event that provides an enjoyable, educational morning focused on breast cancer topics to nearly 300 women and their families. The center sponsored a booth and used Positive Promotions’ products to beautify their display and promote breast cancer awareness. They offered “Love, Faith, Strength, Hope” Lapel Pins to attendees and raffled off a Deluxe Picnic Cooler Gift Basket. “Overall the event was a huge success, not only for our breast imaging center, but for our patients, their families, and the community,” an employee said.

Challenge

Honor a woman who lost her fight with breast cancer while educating others about the disease.

Solution

Members of a church in the Midwest decided to hold a breast cancer awareness luncheon in memory of their friend, and used it as an opportunity to educate women in their congregation and community about the disease. Positive Promotions’ Leatherette Manicure Kits and other items were handed out in gift bags along with literature from the American Cancer Society. More women than anticipated (a total of 123) enjoyed the luncheon, and the program was such a success that the church plans to hold the event again.
