Using Promotional Products to Support Breast Cancer Awareness
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the perfect time for your business or organization to show support and spread awareness for an important cause. Whether you’re planning a fundraiser, charity walk, or looking to increase awareness, Bank Express your one stop shop for pink giveaways and breast cancer awareness gifts. From breast cancer bracelets, awareness pins, apparel, water bottles, pens and more, we have breast cancer awareness merchandise for every budget and event. Adding your company logo to awareness giveaways shows your clients and employees your values and community presence. You may also consider incorporating a breast cancer awareness month saying or quote such as “think pink” or “a cure worth fighting for.” Below we’ve outlined breast cancer awareness month ideas to help you spread the word not only in October, but all year long.
1. Breast Cancer Fundraising
Promotional products are a great way to raise funds for breast cancer research, education, and future awareness efforts. Choosing breast cancer awareness merchandise that people will find fun or useful, such as custom bags & totes or fundraising kits with an inspirational message or your organization’s logo is a great first step.
In addition to bags and totes and kits, the best categories for fundraising include:
2. Education and Awareness
Use promotional products to educate people on risk factors, signs and symptoms, and early detection. Education is one of the best ways to increase the rate of early detection and connect those in need with resources in their community. Promotional products such as calendars and bookmarks can help share the name, address, phone number or website of informational resources that people can use to learn more about the disease.
In addition to the products above, these categories are also very effective in spreading an educational message:
3. Workplace Events
Other popular options for workplace awareness events include:
4. Community Events
Host, sponsor or participate in an event in your community in support of a person who is fighting the disease or an organization that directly helps with research, resources, education or awareness for Breast Cancer. Charity 5K Walk/Runs and car washes are excellent examples of this. Hand out branded bottles of water and add a personalized tag with your logo to each one for an added touch.
Or, hand out custom printed items to keep people thinking about breast cancer prevention long after the event is over:
5. Volunteer and Donor Appreciation
Reward those who have volunteered at events or donated to your cause with a thoughtful gift to show your appreciation. Engraved writing sets and insulated bottles are cost-effective items that make great gifts. Recipients will be reminded of the impact of their support every time they use these items and may encourage them to participate again next year.
Reward larger donors with a memorable gift such as:
