    Turn inspiration into action in the fight against breast cancer

    Solution

    After attending and thoroughly enjoying a "Pretty in Pink" breast cancer event several years ago, a woman in the South decided to do her part to be more active in future events. She is now a "table host" for "Pretty in Pink" and invites friends and loved ones to join her table each year. As part of her responsibilities, she has to decorate her table and provide gifts for those sitting with her. At the latest event, she included Positive Promotions' Women's Monthly Planner With Wellness Tips in her gift bags.

    Support women recently diagnosed with breast cancer

    Solution

    Each year, a breast cancer support group puts together comfort bags for women. The bags are intended to not only provide comfort, but also to offer hope to the women who have just received life-changing news. The bags contain a number of items, including Positive Promotions’ Cushioned Socks. More than 2,500 women have received the bags, a representative from the support group said. The feedback has been “overwhelming and fuels us to continue,” she added.

    Find an easy way to raise money for breast cancer research

    Solution

    A home rental agency in the Midwest held two events in the building lobby during October. To raise money, the agency sold raffle tickets for items in Positive Promotions’ 51-Gift Budget Raffle Pack and items from the 100-Piece Variety Fundraising Kit. Although organizers of the fundraiser considered their efforts to be small, they were able to raise $300 more than their goal.
